If you have opted for a floating rate loan, you cannot switch to a fixed rate option mid-course. However, you can transfer your loan from one bank to another, if you find a more attractive offer. Normally, one per cent of the outstanding loan amount is charged to the borrower in the case of a loan takeover. You need to work out whether the amount you save by switching to a lower-cost loan is more than the switching cost.
Depending on the bank offering an educational loan, there is a prepayment penalty of 5% on the outstanding principal amount. There are some banks which do not have a prepayment penalty.
Second time Education Loan can be sanctioned to the same student borrower for completion of next higher course at the discretion of the Bank. A student who has taken the loan for a Bachelors degree can apply for another loan for the completion of Master's degree.
