  • 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.
  • Bhubaneshwar sees many new Universities and Reforms on Education Loan

The Odisha State Open University and VSS Institute of Medical Sciences (VIMSAR) also became functional with an upgraded status this year. Indian Institute of Management (IIM) at Sambalpur became operational this year and the Centre has also promised to establish Indian Institute of Science Education and Research by this year. The government has also recruited a significant number of faculty members for universities and offered liberal funding for their infrastructure upgradation. One of the biggest milestones in higher education in 2015 was that all universities and 32 autonomous colleges in the state introduced CBCS. 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.
  • Enlarging the access to Higher Education through Education Loans

    I have taken Education loan from Canara bank few years back, my loan application was approved and the requested amount was disbursed. I have taken loan for Rs 70000 with the rate of interest of 12.5% which is high when compared to other banks. An EMI amount is flexible and there is no fixed amount to pay. Customer service was good and they responded on time, the process was very smooth and it was a good loan experience.

    SBI charged me like a local financier on my education loan. I had taken an education loan for10 lakhs but the amount credited was only Rs. 9.5 lakhs they have taken other extra charges on my loan. Initially I applied for this loan for an interest rate of 12% but suddenly they increased for 18%. After receiving my loan completion letter only I came to know they have debited certain charges also the interest rate offered is 18% it is extremely high.

    I got the education loan with the Indian overseas bank and the loan amount got credited within a week of time. Documentation procedures are not much hassle and the EMI is around 10000 Rupees per month and the tenure is around twelve months of time. They are very flexible to the customer.
