  • 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.
