Education Loan

Quality education is a must for a complete and successful life. For many, it is equivalent to graduating from a top institution. The cost of education is, however, increasing rapidly. In fact, the cost of studying at reputed institutions is already quite high.


Keeping this in mind, parents, who want to provide their children with the best possible education, invest their money in mutual funds (MFs), fixed deposits (FDs), unit-linked insurance plans (ULIPs), etc., for the long term.


Some banks offer the loan even before one has secured admission into the university. As per the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) guidelines, there are no restrictions on the upper age limit, but some banks may have it. The banks require additional documents such as admission letter of the institution, fee structure, Class X, XII and graduation (if applicable) marksheets. Also required are the income documents such as salary slips or income-tax.Loan financing, collateral requirement .

The banks can finance up to 100% of the loan depending on the amount. Currently, for loan up to Rs 4 lakh, there is no margin money required. For studies in India, 5% of the required money has to be financed by the applicant. On the other hand, for studies overseas, the required margin money increases to 15%.
the banks also ask for collateral for loans above Rs 7.5 lakh. Presently, the banks do not ask for any collateral .
