Home Loan Balance Transfer Top-up for Self-employed for Higher Education

Some of the common ways of funding higher education are using family savings, lending from friends and relatives, or selling assets like land, gold etc. But you can also do so by refinancing your existing home loan with us. You can get a top-up loan of up to Rs. 1 crore* or higher on your balance transfer at competitive interest rates.


Your education loan will most likely cover your tuition fee, but not the cost of visa, insurance, and travel tickets. These expenses are significant and may cause a dip in your savings if they are unaccounted for.



Additional courses, vocational training, coaching, or elective subjects increase the cost of education. While the basic tuition fee is taken care of with an education loan, these additional costs are to be borne by you. A top-up on your existing home loan helps a lot in this case.



Reoccurring costs like rent expenses, groceries and food bills, transportation costs, clothing, phone bills, internet bills, and more, all add up. These expenses can significantly pile up and make a dent in your savings.



It's likely that you'll need access to a computer, software, and textbooks. These costs can crop up at any time and are rarely planned for. Consider adding a top-up on your home loan balance transfer with us and be financially prepared.
