The ministry of HRD, Government of India, has come up with a unique interest subsidy scheme to provide full interest subsidy during the course period plus one year or six months after getting a job, whichever is earlier. Specially designed for the students from economically weaker sections of the society where annual parental income is not more than Rs.4.5 lakhs, this scheme is available for borrowers pursuing any approved professional course from a recognized Indian institution.
Some of the points to keep in mind while availing this subsidy are as follows.
This interest subsidy scheme can be availed only once by eligible students for pursuing an undergraduate, postgraduate or an integrated course from an Indian institution.
The interest subsidy will not be considered for students who discontinue the course or who are expelled from the institution due to disciplinary or academic reasons. In case of discontinuation due to medical reasons, necessary documentation has to be submitted to avail this scheme.
