SBI Education Loans: Advantages

1. The SBI education loan interest rate is much lower than that offered by the majority of other banks and NBFCs.
2. With one of the largest networks, there are practically no geographical restrictions while managing the loan accounts.
3. Girl students can enjoy 0.5% concession on the interest rates offered by SBI.
4. SBI does not levy pre-closure penalties.
5. With SBI Global Ed-Vantage scheme, your loan is sanctioned before visa/i20.
6. You get a tax benefit under Section 80E on the entire interest component of the loan.

SBI Education Loans: Disadvantages

The procedure to procure a loan is quite elaborate and that deters many candidates. However, we at GyanDhan, help make the process as quick as 10 working days!.
SBI doesn’t approve a loan before the student is enrolled in a college/university, which can be a showstopper for those universities that require proof of loan/funds before offering admissions.

SBI Education Loans: Know your EMI and Plan your Repayment

You can check a wide range of SBI education loan repayment calculators that help you understand your requirements and EMIs.

1. EMI calculator calculates your EMI based on your loan amount, interest rate, moratorium and course period and whether you want to pay the interest during your study.
2. SBI education loan prepayment calculator allows you to check the details if you want to prepay the loan with three alternatives – By making larger monthly payments.

By making one extra payment.
By paying off the loan as quickly as you can.
By checking individual options, you can take an informed decision that suits you the best.
