4 IMPORTANT QUESTIONS ABOUT BIDEN’S STUDENT LOAN FORGIVENESS-A REVIEW
## **THROUGH EXECUTIVE ACTION, CAN BIDEN FORGIVE STUDENT LOANS?** Biden spoke support for the forgiveness of student loans. But, he opposed the call for the president to withdraw student debts. Many student loan legal specialists claim, that Biden has the right to use administrative authority to develop extensive student loan reconciliations. Supporters point out that the Higher Education Act provisions passed by the Minister of Education. He believes that, the president has broad powers to “change, compromise, give up or issue student loans”. Several consumer protection organizations and the House of Representatives (including Senator Elizabeth Warren) claim that using this kind of enforcement power to cancel student loan debts is legally adequate. Other supporters point to the “Heroes Act”. Which authorizes the president to act in response to an enduring pandemic. That is the starting point for President Trump’s previous administration to postpone interest and payment on federal student loans owned by the government. However, an attorney from the Ministry of Education, led by former secretary DeVos, came to the opposite assumption that the extensive reconciliation of student loans went far further than what Congress planned when the law on higher education and student loans was first passed. ## **WHO WOULD BE ELIGIBLE, IF [BIDEN FORGIVES STUDENT LOANS](https://studentloanforgivenessapplication.com/joe-biden-student-loan-programs/)?** Biden has never announced public backing to withdraw all $1.7 trillion in outstanding student loan debt. If the government decides that the president can allow student loans through his actions, does it impose restrictions or eligibility criteria? There are several ways to limit student loan forgiveness. The most noticeable technique is the allowable amount of student loan debt. The student loan borrower requested cancellation of [Student Loan forgiveness](https://studentloanforgivenessapplication.com/) exceeding $50,000. However, Biden has always insisted on reducing the “target” amount of student loan subsidies, significantly $10,000. Biden said in December that it was “unlikely” to cancel or forgive the $50,000 student loan. Similar to eligibility for stimulus control, entitlement can also be restricted to borrowers based on income. Senate leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) had recommended that student loan repayments can be restricted to borrowers with annual incomes of less than $150,000 previously. The type of student loan in question may also be appropriate. For example, the Higher Education Act does not cover private student loans, so written student loan repayments may be limited to federal student loans. ## **IF BIDEN DECIDES HE CANNOT CANCEL STUDENT DEBT VIA EXECUTIVE ACTION, WHAT HAPPENS?** Biden said that his favorite way to obtain student loan assistance is to allow Congress to pass the student loan forgiveness law. Given that the democratic majority in the House of Representatives and the Senate are currently narrow. And leaders have little room for error, this radical student loan reform may be a difficult road. Without Republican support, Republican senators may interfere with such law in the Senate. Additionally, the government’s current focus is on Biden’s extensive infrastructure plans, which may take months to complete. For these excuses, supporters of student loan borrowers claim that administrative actions are the best way to issue student loan forgiveness. However, if the Biden administration decides to take forceful action to cancel student loans is unsustainable, then nothing will be lost. Through legislation, Congress will be under increasing pressure to take action. ## **WHEN WILL WE GET AN ANSWER ON BIDEN’S STUDENT LOAN FORGIVENESS ANALYSIS?** The Biden administration does not have a statutory timetable for statutory review of student loan repayments. The White House Chief of Staff advised last week that the analysis could take several weeks. However, after the current extension of the ban on most [federal student loan](https://studentloanforgivenessapplication.com/fed-loans/) payments and interest ends, the government can respond before September 30, a safe choice.

Can I Take an Education Loan on Agricultural Land? | GyanDhan
<p> Updated on: 09 Apr 2021 &nbsp; In India, higher education is seen as a passport to a well-settled career. But, with the cost of education inflation currently pegged at 10%, it is no wonder that higher education is becoming a pricey affair and many students have to give up their dreams of higher studies. At such times, an education loan is a blessing for students who need financial help to pursue their higher education dream. It makes higher education and the associated study costs within reach of all such students.&nbsp; Introduced by SBI in 1995, an education loan is not only beneficial for students who are unable to finance their higher education but also for those who want to keep their savings safe for personal contingencies, get tax benefits, and build a good Credit score. It is no wonder then that education loan firms have disbursed INR 11,000 crores in education loans during the 12 months ending September 2020. However, many times education loan seekers have numerous doubts regarding the policies that guide education loan sanction. Among all the various queries, one of the top ones that we often get is whether a student can take an education loan on agricultural land. In this blog, we will try to answer this question and help make things clear for all such students.&nbsp; Can I take a secured education loan on agricultural land?&nbsp; Well, theoretically the answer to this question is, Yes. But on digging a little deeper we realize that this is not possible practically. Even though the RBI has suggested that banks sanction education loans to farmers and their children, the reality is quite different. When we look at the terms and conditions for sanctioning a secured education loan, we realize that all public banks, private banks, and NBFCs have mentioned that agricultural land is not accepted as collateral for an education loan. Even though the reasons for this are not very clear, one possible reason for this could be the fact that agricultural land cannot be used to raise security in case the education loan becomes a Non-Performing Asset. The very purpose of collateral is to be a means of recovering the loan money in case the borrower defaults on the loan and this would not be the case with agricultural land, thus beating the very purpose of asking for collateral.&nbsp; Need an education loan to study abroad? Fill in the form to get free assistance What is the next best option? Now that we know that it is not practically possible to get a secured education loan on agricultural land, let us look at alternate ways in which a student can get a secured education loan.&nbsp; Find another immovable collateral that can be attached with your loan application - Lenders accept many different kinds of tangible collateral for sanctioning an education loan such as any flat, house, plot with boundary, shop, etc. In case a borrower does not have the property in his/her name, they can also attach third-party collateral for their education loan, provided the owner agrees to mortgage the property on behalf of the student.&nbsp; Attach any movable collateral with your education loan - A student can also pledge intangible assets such as Fixed Deposits, Government Bonds, Mutual Funds, National Savings Certificates, Life Insurance Policies, etc. The assets could be in the name of the student or even a relative.&nbsp; Pledge gold ornaments - Students can also mortgage gold ornaments for their education loan.&nbsp; It should be noted here that the value of the collateral being pledged must be equal to or higher than the loan amount being applied for. Hence, a borrower can pledge any one of the above collateral or even attach more than one in case the value of one collateral is less than the loan amount being requested. &nbsp; What should you do in case you cannot pledge collateral? If a student is unable to arrange any of the above-mentioned collateral, even then there is hope for them in the form of unsecured education loans. Most lenders provide unsecured loans to deserving students. Some like private banks and NBFCs even raise their upper loan limit for an unsecured education loan for meritorious students.&nbsp; Still confused with the various lenders and education loan schemes and looking for help with an education loan? Well, get in touch with GyanDhan - India’s first education financing platform, &nbsp;and get all your education loan queries resolved from experts.
