Like everything else, cost of education is also on the rise. Getting higher education has become so difficult that students are left with no other choice than getting educational loans. Such loans are specially designed for students who want a part of their education (in India or abroad) to be funded by a financial institution on various terms. An educational loan typically covers expenses of tuition and examination fee as well as hostel and mess costs. Several banks also get on board to finance the cost of equipment, books and various instruments required for the completion of a particular course.
Eligibility criteria for getting a loan varies from one bank to another, but the uniform paradigm is the confirmation of student's admission in an institute. Other criterions that vary in each bank are student's age, qualification, good academic record and the fixed source of income of parents. Another important factor most lenders consider is that the institute must be recognized.
Likewise, maximum amount to lend also varies from one bank to another. Most banks consider the course program and the institution for which a loan is being sought; others come to decision after going through the monthly salary of the parents of the borrower. Some banks even have policies of offering 75 percent of the total cost of the course program. However, the loan amount solely depends on the relevant bank's discretion.
Under Section 80 E of the Income Tax Act, banks allow a deduction in repayment of the loan. The amount is deductible for only full time higher education courses, professional courses and applied sciences programs. The deduction is available for up to eight years from the beginning of repayments.
The interest must be paid from the following month of loan disbursal whereas the principal amount is payable only after a specified amount of interest and principal amount has been repaid. The candidate must keep paying the amount of interest on his loan while studying. The repayment schedule is charted out by the bank and is based on various factors. It includes interest rates, monthly payment, term of loan repayment, payment due dates and total repayment obligations.
While repaying the educational loan, one should always ensure that payments are made on time. When a borrower fails to make timely payments or meet the terms and conditions of the bank, he may face legal consequences. The lender will take legal action against the debtor and may withhold his income tax refunds.
If he fails to make payments, the debtor will be left with a bad credit which will make him ineligible for any kind of future financial aid from all lenders. Therefore, one must follow a few suggestions in order to avoid such situation:
Go through the terms of loan thoroughly so as to fully understand it
Keep the contact information updated so that bank can reach him any time
Automatic payments should be set up to avoid late repayments
If in need of help, contact the lender ASAP
Since the rules, regulations, repayment options, interest rates and others are, at times, revised by various lenders, it's advised to the borrower to be up-to-date with the changing policies of the bank, evolving market trends and various schemes on offer by the lender.

How is the repayment month calculated for educational loan. our manager of a sbt says the repayment month calculated from the first year of a course.we got loan fir the course period of 2009 to 2013. but first year fee paid by us and got loan for remaining 3 years.the course completed and we start repayment from 2015 october. The banker says the repayment month calculated from 2010 and so remaining month is 112 months for 15 years. is this correct or not
