With new developing country update to time, now Indian students are able to have loan debt for their MBA and Professional course from banks. This money loan are run to support their period of life in the study term.

With these new revolution, most Indians students have much high opportunity in the world social marketing like other previous modern countries.

As do other educational programmes, whether they are a professional or technical graduate degree, a liberal arts undergraduate degree, or a PhD in botany. A management degree at an IIM will cost just under Rs 1,000,000, but if you’re going abroad you can end up spending anywhere between £15,000 a year to $50,000 a year for an MBA or a similar masters.

Almost all nationalised banks offer educational loans to students for studies in India and abroad. Besides some private trusts are running study loan scheme, the terms and conditions of which vary from organisation to organisation. To garner students to avail educational loan nationalised and private banks have even started putting their posters in college campus and promote their schemes. This trend is catching on and one will see lot of students going in for educational loan once the awareness level increases.

With the boom in banking sector in the recent past, several banks offer education loans in India these days. Indian Bank is no exception and offer education loans to students interested to pursue education in India or abroad.

The details of schemes vary from bank to bank, but the umbrella loan scheme means that many features will be common. The amount of the loan, for instance, will usually be up to a maximum of Rs 750,000 for studies within India and Rs 15 lakh (Rs 1.5 million) for studies abroad. (Many banks, however, do offer more — at the State Bank, for instance, you can borrow up to Rs 20 lakh — Rs 2 million – if you’re going abroad and HSBC will give you Rs 25 lakh or Rs 2.5 million).

The requirements for the loan again, will only deviate minimally from state guidelines. According to the government scheme, to be eligible, a student needs to be an Indian national, already be in possession of an acceptance letter from his or her school, and in the case of Indian universities, have scored a minimum of 60 per cent in the entrance exam.

Most banks will adhere to this general guideline, but may ask for additional items such as an approved list of expenses from the school, income tax statements from the student and possibly the parents, and an account of assets and liabilities that they own or owe.

The interest rate will normally be level with the prime lending rate of the banks, if the loan is up to Rs 200,000, but be PLR plus 1 per cent over Rs 200,000. Security will only be needed if the loan amount is over Rs 200,000. (Most banks have moved this dividing point from Rs 200,000 up to Rs 400,000).

There may be additional caveats: some banks have an age limit, for instance the Oriental Bank of Commerce insists that you be under 45 years of age, and many (though not all, for instance at the Indian Overseas Bank, if you’re over the age of 18, there is no need to have a co-signer) will also insist that the parents or guardians be co-signers.

In terms of payback, most banks will give you the equated monthly instalments (EMI) option, slicing what could be a mammoth payback into easier-to-swallow monthly packages. Most banks will also give you time to start hunting around for a job before they expect you to start paying it back. The State Bank, for instance, expects you to start payments either from six months after getting a job, or one year after the completion of your course — whichever comes first.

All in all, the loan schemes banks are offering nowadays are a boon for students. Look out mostly for smaller banks though, for most large private players, such as ICICI, HDFC or Citibank (which has a very comprehensive student loan system in its branches abroad), do not have extensive educational schemes.
