What are HDFC Credila Education Loan Benefits?

  1. No Margin Money; All Expenses Covered - Since HDFC Credila education loans have zero margin money, you will not have to finance any part of the total expense involved in your education abroad. Credila education loans cover all the expenses incurred while studying abroad like tuition & living costs and caution deposit/building fund/refundable deposit.

  2. Customized Options and Malleable Repayment Provisions - One of the USPs of Credila Education Loans is that it provides customized loan solutions to students as per the country or course they have chosen. These customizations also allow for flexible repayment options thus helping the students to pay off their EMIs as per their convenience and comfort. You can contact GyanDhan to know the extent of customization. We will evaluate your requests and tell you if they will be accepted by HDFC Credila or not.

  3. Expedited Approval in Urgent Cases - Our express approval facility helps you get your loan sanctioned within 1-2 working days in case of urgent circumstances. If you have to meet a deadline and complete formalities like VISA or fee payment at the earliest, you can reach us with your specific requirements and we will get your loan sanctioned immediately.

  4. Assistance During Disbursements - If you apply for an HDFC Credila Education Loan through GyanDhan, we will be assisting you till the entire loan amount is disbursed and ensure that all the disbursements are made timely.

  5. Pre-visa Loan Disbursement - For the counties where the loan disbursement needs to be done before VISA, GyanDhan will ensure that the customer gets the money as per the requirement. We will take all the necessary approvals beforehand so that you don't have to worry about your finances and VISA.

  6. Flexible Options For the Co-borrower - HDFC Credila Education Loan has customized repayment solutions for the co-borrower. There are also very few restrictions on who the co-borrower can be. For example, if your father or relative works abroad, he/she can be a co-borrower/guarantor. For him/her to be the co-borrower/guarantor, he/she should have an NRI account, and most importantly, the collateral should be in India. You will require an additional co-borrower in both the cases.

  7. Tax Benefit Under the 80 e Section - With an HDFC Credila Education Loan, you become entitled to tax benefits on the interest paid on education loan as per the section 80-E of the Income Tax Act.

  8. Pre-admission Loan Sanction - The best part of applying for a Credila education loan is that it sanctions the loan even before you receive your admission letter. For this, Credila takes into account your GRE score. If you apply for a loan via GyanDhan, you can be assured that the whole financing process will be taken care of by us. In this way, you will be able to direct your focus entirely to writing your college application and preparing for admission interviews.
