Tips to note in applying for an education loan

Ideally, take a loan from a bank located at your place of study than one located where you reside, unless it concerns overseas studies. This is because you will have better access to funds if you take a loan from the place of your study. Secondly, Make sure the repayment period starts only after six to twelve months after you begin your working life. And thirdly, Banks typically prefer to finance students who opt for traditional courses.

For What Professional Courses do Banks generally provide education loans ?

Management students are among the top choices for most of the banks. Technology students from the country’s premier institutions can also get student loans from Banks and Medical and engineering college students.

Banks don’t provide loans for students with a bachelor’s/master’s in Arts . Also, for courses where employment prospects are less (as per Bank’s own evaluation), loans are sanctioned on the basis of the parents’ income.

How much Loan you can get ?

Loan for Studies in India Most of the Public Sector Banks in India have categorized Student Loans in two categories. For Studies in India, Students can borrow up to Rs 4 lakh without providing any security or margin. A loan amount of Rs 4 lakhs to Rs 7.5 lakhs can be availed against a third-party guarantee. This loan comes with a five percent margin (what this means is that you will get five percent less the amount sanctioned as loan; you will have to put together the rest of the money). The third-party guarantee can come from an uncle, neighbor or friend standing guarantee for the full amount.

Overseas study loans : Amounts worth Rs 7 lakhs and above are usually sanctioned against fixed deposits, NSC certificates, property worth the loan amount and a margin amount of 15 percent (what this means, again, is that you will get 15 percent less the amount sanctioned as loan; you will have to put together the rest of the money). Also, if a loan below Rs 4 lakhs comes at x rate of interest, the loan over Rs 4 lakhs is usually charged one percent higher interest. The Reserve Bank of India prescribes the specifics (amount, rate, repayment period) of education loans and the government provides a two per cent subsidy on these loans to the banks.
