State Bank of India (SBI) Education Loans

What Is an Education Loan?

An Education loan is the loan or funds acquired by an individual to pursue higher studies in India or abroad. The loan repayment commences for the student after completing the education and a period of 6 months is given as grace period to students to get or join a job.

The repayment amount will be determined by your choice of interest, you need to decide how you want to repay the loan. That is if you want to start paying during the time of moratorium period itself or after the moratorium period. The Moratorium period is the time of your education plus 6 months or 1 year given to get a job. It is only after this time that you are expected to pay the loan.

The loan interest starts to accrue at the time of dispersal of funds, so at the time of your graduation you have a huge amount to repay. The other option is your parents or guardian can start paying the loan during the moratorium period itself where it is calculated as a simple interest.

This way your loan amount at the time of graduation is drastically reduced.

There are 4 types of education loans in India

1. Under Graduate education loan - These are given to students who have completed their secondary education and looking to do higher studies in the form of under graduation. It can be done in India or abroad.

2. Post graduate education loan - These are education loans given to individuals who want to pursue post-graduation after completing under graduation course from a reputed university/college. Here also the loan can be for studying in India or abroad.

3. Parents availing education loan - This is the case where the parents take loan for the education purposes of their children. This is an unsecured loan and need not be for graduate or post-graduation courses but also for elementary and higher secondary courses.

4. Career growth education loans - These are loans provided to young people who want to pursue courses or trainings, certifications that will benefit their career growth.

EMI Payment Methods

SBI education loan can be repaid in following three ways.

Standing Instruction (SI): If you are an existing account holder with SBI, Standing Instruction is the best mode of repayment. Your EMI amount will be debited automatically at the end of the monthly cycle from the SBI account you specify.

Electronic Clearing Service (ECS): This mode can be used if you have a non-SBI account and would like your EMIs to be debited automatically at the end of the monthly cycle from this account.

Post-Dated Cheques (PDCs): You can submit post-dated EMI cheques from a non-SBI account at your nearest SBI Loan Centre. A fresh set of PDCs will have to be submitted in a timely manner. Please note Post Dated Cheques will be collected non-ECS locations only.

It is recommended that you opt for either the SI or ECS mode of payment for faster and less prone to error than the use of PDCs.
