      SBI education loan process was flexible, within the time they have disbursed the amount. I felt interest rate was high for the education loan, they offered me around 13 to 14% but for the car loan and other products they were offering around 7 to 8% of interest. It would be great if they reduce the interest rate for the education loan.

      Education loan is only for business purpose there isn't any help from the bank if a student belongs to lower middle class whose father is earning 15-16k. They will reject your application before you apply even if you ask for a student loan of 4 lakh rupees.My entire family have bank accounts in SBI and we have our savings and fixed deposits too. But it's of no use. They will behave with you as if you have a criminal background. Almost all branch managers are egoistic.
