What is an education loan subsidy?

2 min read

The rising cost of education has become a major obstacle, especially for meritorious students from economically weaker and minority sections. To ensure the availability and affordability of higher education, the Indian government launched education loan subsidy schemes for eligible applicants.

These schemes allow borrowers to avail an education loan in India with interest subsidy for the moratorium period. Here are a few of the education loan subsidy schemes available.
  • Padho Pardesh Scheme
    This program offers the opportunity of pursuing education abroad to students belonging to the minority community. Under the Padho Pardesh scheme, eligible individuals can avail 100% interest subsidy on their education loan
  • Central Scheme for Interest Subsidy
    This education loan interest subsidy program has been introduced for students from the economically weaker sections. Students can opt for this scheme to finance their studies in any professional or technical course.
  • Dr. Ambedkar Central Sector Scheme of Interest Subsidy
    This is also an interest subsidy scheme on education loans. Individuals from Backward classes (OBC) and Economically Backward Classes (EBC) can avail this financial assistance to study overseas.

Besides these schemes, another solution is the Bajaj Finserv Study Loan on Property. Its features include
