Frequently asked Questions

Please see some of HDFC Credila’s FAQ’s below. For a full list of FAQ’s, please visit here

What is the best way to finance higher education?

Some of the common ways of funding higher education is through using family savings, borrowing from friends and relatives, selling assets like land, gold etc. or taking an education loan . Earlier, it was believed that only people from the middle-income group choose to fund their education through student/education loans. With benefits of an education loan coming to the fore and specialists like HDFC Credila offering doorstep service, many affluent families are also opting for an education loan and availing of exclusive benefits like:

  • Income Tax benefits under section 80E of IT Act
  • Opportunity for students to take their own financial responsibilities
  • Preserving their family savings
  • Building a good credit history

Hence, education loans have clear advantages over using personal finance

Who should opt for an education loan and why?

Ans: Usually, middle-income group people apply for education loans. However, because of:

  • Rapidly rising costs of education
  • Income tax benefit under 80E of IT act
  • Students wanting to take their own financial responsibilities to preserve the parents savings
  • build positive credit history

Even affluent families are going for education loan for their student’s abroad studies

Repayment terms

When do I start paying my EMI?

HDFC Credila's unique education loan offers the flexibility of paying only interest (PEMI) during the course period and principle plus interest (EMI) after the completion of studies and grace period.

How do you decide on repayment period?

The repayment periods are generally driven by our evaluation of the student's potential earning capability and risks we perceive in extending any particular loan. At HDFC Credila, we understand that students want to start repaying loans immediately after they get a job. However, they may find higher EMI's (due to shorter repayment periods) at the start of their careers, very challenging. Thus we offer longer tenure to facilitate smooth transition of student from campus to corporate. This way they can start their earning and professional lives with positive credit histories that help them to take other loans in future.

How is interest calculated?

Interest may be calculated on daily, monthly or yearly reducing principle basis
