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.
