Education Loan

Education Loan

Education helps an individual to rise higher in life, the word education has been derived from the Latin word “ed-u-care” which means “to raise”. Over years, right from The Mahatma’s and The Guru’s, what has remained common is the impartation of knowledge and skills to others. However, unlike ancient times, education is no longer free.

Most of the students from India are highly skilled and knowledgeable. But due to money related issues, they skills remain unpolished and they are incapable of taking their studies further. To help such students, the concept of loan for education in India was introduced.

An Education loan is a loan that provides the financial backing to the student for higher education. A student who can’t afford fees and other expenses for study after 10+2 may get an education loan on certain terms and conditions of the bank.
