Educational Bank Loans Provided by Various Banks in India

Education Loan

Studying abroad is a dream that most hope would be fulfilled one day. However the path is not as simple as it seems to be. You have to make a number of choices starting from selecting the country where you wish to go for further studies to choosing the right course and finally somewhere in the middle of all these decisions lies the most important of them all i.e. arranging the finance.

In order to make their dream of studying abroad come true, most students have to settle for a loan. Reasons for taking a loan vary from not being able to afford the exorbitant fees to facilitating visa documentation. Getting the loan cleared is a hurdle that is nearly impossible to avoid. What makes the going even tougher is the fact that there are only a few banks that offer educational loan. Government subsidies have kept interest rates on education loan in India relatively lower than other loans making the not-so-popular choice of private banks.

This narrows down the list of options even further. Thus you are left with only option that is to apply for education loan from a government bank as they are mandated by policy to provide these loans. Even though the interest rates on such loans are lower, bureaucratic practices and time constraints are a major obstacle on your way to realizing your dream.
