    "Timely help"
    0.5 5.0/5 "Blown Away!"
    I have taken my educational loan with 2001. I purchased the loan with SBI. My father was SBI Manager so we got the loan really quick. I never interacted with any other customer care. I had taken 1.80 lakhs as a loan amount and i have to repay the loan amount of Rs. 2.10. The interest rates are very less. I have chosen the tenure period of 7 years.

    I had taken an educational loan from State bank of India and the process was really good. My friends had taken from other banks and they were charged high. But I had no charges. It was a very easy process too. I am happy to have banked with them for this benefit.

    "Unconditional sanctioned education loan by minimum document "
    0.5 3.0/5 "Satisfactory"
    For education loan SBH is charging 12% interest rate and the processing fee is maximum of Rs.1500-2000. They have heavy paper works and also many terms & conditions for the process. My suggestion is that to minimize the documentation process.

    I have taken the educational loan with the State Bank of Hyderabad before 6 years of time and I have closed it also. I have taken around 5 lakh Rupees from them and the services are good with them. For the first two years there will be no interest and after that they will calculate the interest.

    0.5 5.0/5 "Blown Away!"
    I have to visit the branch for making the payment for the SBH educational loan. They were not keen in collecting the payment even after the due date. I did not get any sort of correspondence from them nor a courtesy call . Interest offered by them was high and there is no processing fee for the same.
