Education Loan


What is an Education Loan ?

Education loan is a Personal loan a student applies for to complete his/her educational commitments. It is a long term loan where the repayments are deferred until the education/course is completed and the student/borrower gets a job. Nowadays, educational institutes charge exorbitant fees and not every meritorious student can afford them. The student loans are offered for courses within India and abroad, based on minimal personal loan eligibility and documentation criteria.
