  • Court Rules in Favor of Students against Bank
    After their application for a 4-year educational loan was rejected by Canara Bank, two girls from Tuticorin sought the help of the court in 2014. The bank had rejected their application in 2012-13 as they had scored less than 60% marks in their Plus Two examinations. With the case going on for years, the bank had stated that the student’s course is ending by this year, therefore the case would not survive. But the judge has not accepted the bank’s submissions and has rejected “60% cut-off” as a reason for loan rejection. As the girls are in their final year, the bank’s branch manager has been directed to reconsider the loan application and sanction the loan for the last academic year of the course in accordance with the revised rules. This ruling should be carried out within two weeks from the receipt of the court order.

  • Banks are in a better position to vet foreign universities
    The end of 2014 witnessed a large number of students being deported from US universities. The reasons are unclear, but the common factor is that the universities were low profile such as NorthWestern Polytechnic University and Silicon Valley University. This also happen in 2011, where 6,500 Indian students were deported from Australia despite many of them being enrolled in accredited universities. These events result in shock, stress and a huge loss of money. To try to avoid such circumstances, Indian Bank Association has a list of 1,100 institutions that are accredited and pre-vetted. The list is not rigid but helps when seeking admission into a good college and while trying to get an educational loan. Also, check the employability after your course and the general placement record of your university. The type of degree chosen, the level of the course, and the specialisation also play an important role. If you choose to fund your studies abroad with an educational loan, banks will check applicable guidelines of a country and the immigration laws. Banks are also up to date on accredited universities as well as accreditation agencies. Each case is evaluated separately and you have a better chance of going abroad without much of the hassle.

Introduction of three-month short-term spoken English course for undergraduate students in over 25 state colleges to prepare job-ready student workforce is also one major milestone this year. The Odisha State Interest Subvention Scheme (OSISS) offers subsidy in education loan interest by 4 per cent for boys and six per cent by girls. This has encouraged students from the economically weaker sections to pursue professional and higher education.

    Hdfc Credila bangalore will just waste your time. They will call you multiple times to collect the documents and not update you about the status. I had very bad experience with Mallesh the deputy manager with Credila and when it was escalated to Adharsh who was regional manner I suppose straight away he told it's rejected because it's unsecured loan. When Mallesh had come for documents he gave all glass hopes that this will be approved within 4 working days and when it is time to apply for visa these guys don't even pick the call. Very much disappointed. I provide my email id as well here if someone wants to reach me. It's David.R.kumar@gmail.com. be careful guys u will miss an opportunity if u depend on these guys.

    SBI customer service is not good when I approached them for education loan. My loan amount was Rs. 1.80 for the tenure based on the period of my course, SBI gave me interest rate based on RBI but its was high . If I have any queries, I could not reach any branch, I would like to suggest them to be flexible to the customer's query.
