 Education Loan Reviews

"The services provided by Punjab National bank are student friendly. I took the educational loan in the year 2003 and the total tenure was for 5-6 years. The benefit is that if the student does not get any job after their studies the loan can be paid by the parents without any interest for it. At the time when I opted the loan there were a lot of offers . They provide the cheques and the updates on time. The customer support was very good. The interest rate was 7.55% which is reasonable. There was no issues in availing and closing the loan."

Education Loan Articles

  • Options for financing education abroad
    Studying abroad is expensive and at times the cost can be as high as six times that of the cost in India and hence planning needs to be done to ensure that sufficient funds are at disposal when needed. This is essential because to apply for the student visa, you need to show proof of funds sufficient to cover at least the first year of education.
  • Some basic facts about educational loans
    A ray of hope is seen with the availability of educational loans from various banks, which can fund an individual’s higher education. As these loans are not one of the ‘mainstream’ loans such as home loans or personal loans, people are hesitant or mostly unaware of such options. Here are answers to some generic queries that rise in regards to educational loans.
  • Education loans set to become more attractive!
    Typically interest rate on the education loan starts accumulating as soon as the course is over. Since interest during the moratorium period will be paid by the government, EMI for the borrower is set to fall. This will reduce pressure on his/her cash flows.
  • Education loan amount is to be correlated to repayment capacity
    According to a recent press report the revised education loan scheme implemented on all banks will make disbursal based on the repayment potential of the borrower. The education loans are not going to be offered based on the parental income or family wealth of the borrower which will be the decisive factor.

    I was holding a educational loan with Corporation Bank. We have to provide atleast 20 or 30 documents and lot of other stuff to avail this loan. This loan was taken to pursue higher education. I was made to sign even an agreement form so that if I failed to repay the same they can even issue a legal notice against me. Eventually loan was closed successfully.

    Customer service offered by SBI Educational loan was really good. They offered a low rate of interest that is the best part about them . They were taking a lot of time to process the application and they took a lot of time to respond as well. They have taken some additional security like any other Bank to process my application. It was successfully completed after 6 years.

    The experience was good when I availed an educational loan with Syndicate bank. I am having this loan for the past 8 years in which the services are good. But the rate of interest was high which must be reduced. The customer support was also good. The amount I pay is Rs.2500 per month which should be reduced.

    Union bank Of india provided very low interest rate and its competitive as well including the processing charges. For educational loan, its 8.5% interest rate and I haven't faced any challenges in terms of communicating to the customer service team. I do pay the monthly payments by visiting the branch and the response provided is faster.

    6 Years ago I had applied for the education loan to Punjab National Bank. The bank officials were very assistive and co-operative at the time of completing the loan formalities. The officials visited the college campus and completed the inquiry process very systematically, complete and concise. Although the documentation work was a bit complicated but as the officials were very helpful the loan formalities were completed very fast and there was also no Loan Processing Fee charged by the bank for the same.

    When I took my educational loan I faced lot of issues from other banks those days . Then I approached central bank for my loan. They are very supportive in terms of processing the loan in terms of documentation. Rate of interest was fixed for all nationalized banks. I paid all my emi amount only in branches . Those days they dont have online banking options to make payments .

    Hi all, Here is a general piece of advice from my experience with Credila for the last 3 years. I strongly urge you to NOT go for Credila education loans. They are best at irritating you in every way possible. Once you sign the contract and get the loan, remember that would be the last time they will ever communicate with you properly. There are many irregularities and lack of co-ordination in the management. I wanted to clear my loan by paying the principle amount because the interest rate is too high. But, for the last 6 months, even after I repeatedly asked them to deduct the principle amount, they haven't done that. They are still juicing the interest and not terminating the contract. Also, my old parents had to run to the bank every month because Credila doesn't even know banking properly and they took more than 6 months to start automatic deduction from my bank account. I strongly urge you to take my brotherly advice and not go to Credila. Cheers!

    Though I closed on educational loan from andhra bank again I took one loan for my MTECH study . Initially I applied for 80% and later in I paid 20% in MTECH . The best part was managers used to send reminders for EMI every month. Overall it was excellent.

    Overall services with Andhra bank in availing educational loan is quite good. However, the processing was much delayed. Interest rate is 14% which is much lesser without no pre closure charges and no processing fees. Everything is good however customer service team could get improvised in terms of response, information as well as allocating particular executive to each customers.
