Get education loan up to Rs 1.5 crore

As the cost of education rises, banks have started increasing the loan amount. State Bank of India has raised its loan amount by five times and now offers an of up to Rs 1.5 crore for those going abroad to study. But, be cautious when taking an education loan. In most cases, it's the first an individual takes in his life. Don't be lax about repayment, as it can hamper your credit score even before you start earning. Here are a few points that can help you zero on options that suit you best

Maximum loan (India): Rs 10 lakh

Maximum loan (abroad): Typically, most banks have a limit of Rs 20 lakh and a few are offering a loan of up to Rs 1.5 crore

Interest rate (India): 9.4-13.5% (varies with lender)

Interest rate (abroad) : 10.8-13.5% (varies with lender)

Collateral: Not required for up to Rs 4 lakh

  • For between Rs 4 lakh and Rs 7.5 lakh, lenders might ask for a third-party guarantor. This can be waived if they are satisfied with co-borrower's net worth or repayment capacity
     
  • For above Rs 7.5 lakh, lenders may ask for additional tangible collateral security like property, mutual funds, bank deposit, insurance, etc.
Watch out for: Choose a university that extends placement opportunities, as you might have to get a job within six months of graduation, to start repaying the loan
  • Check whether the university/institute has tie-ups with banks or non-banking financial companies (NBFCs). Such tie-ups speed loan processing and result in a lower interest rate
     
  • Consider getting a loan before admission. A pre-approved loan serves as proof of funds and strengthens your application
     
  • Enquire about the margin money (what you need to pay out of your pocket). None is typically required for up to Rs 4 lakh; above Rs 4 lakh, 5% is required for domestic courses and 15% for courses abroad
     
  • Repay interest during moratorium period. Maximise tax benefits by repaying entire loan within eight years
NBFCs vs banks: NBFCs charge higher interest compared to banks
  • NBFCs can disburse in 5-10 days; public sector banks might take three-four weeks
     
  • PSBs may ask for proof of admission at the time of application
