Axis Bank Education Loan Interest Rates

As we’ve mentioned before, interest rates are the main factor for all education loans. Here, Axis Bank doesn't fare well - it has extremely high interest rates. Axis Bank education loan has a floating rate of interest that is the sum of Axis’ CBLR plus Spread. Axis charges the spread depending on your creditworthiness, resulting in varying rates for different people. It currently varies between 13.7% to 15.2%. As of the moment, Axis Bank has a lending rate of 15% per year (on average).
One thing to note is that Axis Bank has education loans for 7 years, which is about half the tenure of other banks. This means that you will have higher monthly installments to pay.

Axis Bank Education Loan Processing Fee

Axis Bank requires no margin for any loan up to Rs. 4 lakh. After that, you are required to provide 15% of the loan amount if you are getting the loan to study abroad. There is no processing fee on education loans of Axis Bank, which is great and can save you upwards of Rs. 50,000 compared to other banks and lenders.
