About Education Loan

The concept of an education loan is to bridge the finances till the student completes the studies and then let the student pay back the same to the financiers in the form of EMI. The student is expected to get employment on completion of the course and payback from the salary. Accordingly, the education loan is generally in the student's name. However, the parents always co-borrowed the money to securitize the loan extended to the student.

There are 2 types of Education loans available for the students.

  • The education loans by the public sector banks
  • The private companies provide education loans.

Education Loan By Public Sector Banks:

Public banks cover most of the study abroad programs for providing education loans. Generally, they prefer to know the customers before they provide the loan, and accordingly, you should approach the branch of your own bankers. There are 3 slabs of education loan which are popular among most of the banks:

Rs. 4 Lacs Based on parents' income proof
Rs. 7.50 Lacs Based on Guarantor’s income proof
Rs. 20 Lacs Additional collateral security

The tenure of repayment is very convenient for the students, such as 10 years for Rs. 7.50 Lac loan and 15 years for Rs. 20 Lacs amount. Also, the scheme has 1 year of moratorium period after completion of the study/course. This period allows the student time to get employment.

The parent needs to pay the interest rate until the loan repayment is started in the form of EMI. Generally, the interest rate is around 12% (changes constantly) for boys and a discount on the interest rate for 11.5% for girls.

Generally, the education loan product has a high NPA (Non-Performing Asset), meaning repayment problems. Accordingly, the bank managers are not very anxious to give education loans. The responsibility for allotting sanctions of education loans remains with the bank manager. The risk-taking ability of the bank manager is limited, especially for education loans and

Education Loan By Private Companies
