For medical studies in India, Indian Overseas Bank provides education loan for up to Rs.30 Lakhs and Rs.40 Lakhs for studies abroad. You can get the maximum loan amount, provided you are able to satisfy the eligibility criteria set by the bank.
Taking Rs.25 Lakhs as education loan will depend on the cost that needs to be covered for your studies and the amount you can pay from your pocket.

Moreover, when you have obtained admission into premier medical institutions such as AIIMs and JIPMER based on merit, you are very likely to get approved on your education loan.
