Expert Advice

Best Practices for Educational Loan

Pay interest of Educational loansince from the availing of loan from Bank/Financial Institution.
Otherwise, once you graduate that interest will begin to accumulate interest as well, which is called compound interest. 
Try to get the collateral backed loan, which will cost you lesser Rate of Interest and Easy process of loan.
Try to get financial aid from the colleges to meet your educational needs, this will help you to reduce the Educational loan burden on you to further extent.
After you graduate, take the opportunity to pay down the principle of your loans while you're in a position to pay. Typically, loans are on deferment for six months after your graduation. This is so you have time to find a job.

Things not to do for Educational Loan

Don't rely on your parents to repay out a loan.
Some Banks give you more money than what you owe in tuition. These are called refunds. Don't take out loans that are in excess of your tuition. 
Try to meet other college costs by using your savings or setting up a payment plan.
Loans that provide refunds can only cause temptation. 
If you do get a refund, don't spend it. This money is supposed to be used for meal plans, supplies or books. When you receive that check, don't be foolish and use it on personal things. 
Don't assume that everything in your paperwork is what it should be. Make sure to read over all forms you receive. Most promissory notes explain what you must pay back and when you must begin to pay it. Be sure that you agree to all terms before signing anything! 
7. Don't take too much time off of school. If you choose to take a semester off, you'll be fine, but if you take off more than that, banks will begin to send you bills for your loans.

Basics of Educational Loans

There are three factors that you need to understand before applying for a Educational loan: Margin, Collateral and Repayments.

1) Margin:

Margin is the minimum amount that you have to pay as fees.

Margins vary from 5% to 20% depending on the loan taken and whether the educational institution is in India or abroad.
2) Collateral:
Generally banks will ask for collateral security for all educational loans valued above Rs. 10.0 lakhs, however for the less than Rs. 10.0 Lakhs, banks obtains necessary personal guarantees from the parents or blood relatives or any collateral as per bank comfort. Collateral will be inform of Residential or commercial upto 100% of the coverage of educational loans.
3) Repayment:

Repayment will generally starts from the six months from the completion of course, it can be vary from 6 months to 12 months as per the course discretion.

Simple interest is charged on the loan until the course ends. This interest (including holiday period interest) is added to the principal amount and the EMI is fixed. After six months, interest is charged on a reducing rate.

Banks may provide a 1% concession if the interest is serviced (paid) during the study and holiday period. In case you can service the interest, ask for the concession.

Caution: Repayment of Educational Loans

Your education loan is often the first liability of your credit history with the Bank. Do not default on your education loan. Defaulting on your education loan will make a worse impact on your Credit Score, it is difficult for you to repair your credit history after defaults the Educational Loan. Defaulting shows that you have failed the first credit test that you have been availed. Students, who have taken loans without any collateral, may assume that simply relocating from the address they have submitted to the bank means that they can get away from not paying their loan. This is not true.

When you take a loan, the bank submits your details to a credit bureau such as CIBIL and that's when you are entered into credit records. Your credit report has your name, address, and all your credit history (any credit cards you have owned, a personal loan you have taken and so forth).

Once you are registered with any of the four credit bureaus: CIBIL (you don't have to register, the banks will do that. You don't have a choice), all your details will be available to any banks from the credit bureau.

Try and service your interest during the study and holiday period. This may mean getting a part-time job. It may not be possible if you are studying in India but abroad it can be done.

If you can't make a payment on your own, borrow from family and friends. We cannot stress on how important it is that you don't default on your education loan.

If you get a job before the holiday period is over, service the interest. Start paying the loan only once you have been confirmed.

Do not make use of the entire duration of the loan period to pay off your loan. It suggests that you take too much time to pay off your debt. If you have a 7 year period, try and pay it off in 5 years.
