      My educational loan was taken before 10 years. This was taken for my education( MBA in finance). I had to just finish my first semester and the rest was taken care by SBBJ in the form of educational loan. The loan was on my name and it was paid off successfully.

      "Nice experience"
      0.5 4.0/5 "Great!"
      It was a nice experience of availing an educational loan from State bank of Bikaner & Jaipur. They were just giving all the installments based on my requirement and they are always ready to give the loan. All I have to do it just to submit an application every semester for availing the loan. Processing was also much faster and the rate of interest & charges are nominal.
