Central Scheme of Interest Subsidy for Education Loan

The rising cost of education in India has deprived millions, especially children from humble backgrounds, of quality education. It compels the parents to opt for an education loan to bridge the fund deficit for studying costs.

However, it often becomes difficult for them even to repay the loan. To help such borrowers, the government initiated the interest subsidy on education loans.

What is Interest Subsidy on an Education Loan?

Students from economically weaker sections and low-income groups can now claim the interest of an education loan as a subsidy from the government. Depending on the scheme, the percentage of the subsidy varies.

The eligibility of interest subsidy schemes on education loans is also different for different schemes. Check out the most popular schemes available right now from the Central Government.
