Interest subsidy on education loans to students from economically weaker sections.


Central Scheme to provide Interest Subsidy for the period of moratorium on Educational Loans taken by students from economically weaker sections.

Government of India has approved a Scheme to provide full interest subsidy during the period of moratorium on loans taken by students belonging to economically weaker sections under the Educational Loan Scheme, for pursuing any of the approved courses of studies in technical and professional streams, from recognized institutions in India.

We are providing hereunder guidelines of the scheme:-

1.Applicability of the scheme

The Scheme would be applicable only for studies in recognized technical and professional courses in India. The interest subsidy shall be linked with the existing Model Educational Loan Scheme of our bank and restricted to students enrolled in recognized technical/ professional courses (after Class XII) in India in Educational Institutions established by Acts of Parliament, other Institutions recognized by the concerned Statutory Bodies, Indian Institutes of Management (IIMs) and other institutions set up by the Central/ State Government.

2.Eligibility for Interest Subsidy

The interest subsidy under the Scheme shall be available to the eligible students only once, either for the first undergraduate degree course or the post graduate degrees/diplomas in India. Interest subsidy shall, however, be admissible for integrated courses (graduate + post graduate).

Interest Subsidy under this scheme shall not be available to those students who discontinue the course midstream, or for those who are expelled from the Institutions on disciplinary or academic grounds. However, the interest subsidy will be available if the discontinuation was due to medical grounds for which necessary documentation to the satisfaction of the Head of educational institution will have to be given.

3.Subsidy Applicable Period

Under the Scheme, interest payable by the student belonging to economically weaker section for availing of the Educational Loan for Technical/ Professional courses in India for the period of moratorium i.e., course period, plus one year or six months after getting job, whichever is earlier, as prescribed under Model Educational Loan Scheme of the bank, shall be borne by the Government of India. After the period of moratorium is over, the interest on the outstanding loan amount shall be paid by the student, in accordance with the provisions of the existing Model Educational Loan Scheme and as may be amended from time to time.

4.Applicable Academic Year

The Scheme shall be applicable from the academic year 2009-10 starting 1st April, 2009. The loan amount taken starting from the Academic year 2009-10 (irrespective of the date of sanction) shall only be covered under the scheme of Interest subsidy.

Note: Interest on any amount disbursed for courses starting before the academic year 2009-10 would not be considered for subsidy.

5.Income Limit

The benefits under the Scheme would be applicable to those students belonging to economically weaker sections, with an annual gross parental/ family income upper limit of Rs. 4.5 lac per year (from all sources). The scheme is intended to cater to the needs of students belonging to economically weaker sections with the above prescribed upper parental gross income limit of the family from all sources which is based on economic index and not on social background.

6.Competent Authority for Issuing Income Certificate

Income proof shall be required from the students from such public authorities as are authorized by the State Governments for certification of income status for this scheme, including Central and State Sector Schemes.

For the State of Maharashtra, the Tahsildar is the competent authority for issuing the income certificate.
