Educational Loan from Banks
]overnment of

India and abroad.

The salient features of the scheme are as under

  • For loans up to Rs. 4 lakh no collateral or margin is required
    and the interest rate is not to exceed the Prime Lending Rates (PLR).

  • For loans above Rs. 4 lakh the interest rate will not exceed PLR plus 1 percent.
  • The loans are to be repaid over a period of 5 to 7 years with provision of grace period of one year after completion of studies

Tax Benefit

education loan is deductible under section 80E of the Income Tax Act.
