Just for your information, Educational loan is to be treated as priority sector loan by all banks. They cannot refuse it unless they give reasons in writing. Just get a form somehow and submit it to the bank. They cannot ask for any collateral securuty if amount of loan is upto 7.5 lakhs.

They cannot refuse your application unless they give valid reasons in writing.

Gowri,

It is better to obtain the reason for refusal by making a written request by registered post. And thereafter, we may have the rights to approach them under RTI Act, in case of non receipt of any reply.

Sanctioning of any type of loan is the prerogative of the individual bank subject to the guidelines of the Govt & RBI. Unless you state clearly what exactly is it that you want show to a PSU bank, it is not possible to answer your query.

one of my friend wants to get Education Loan from Bank of Baroda for studies in abroad after graduation. He is good in academics and has all the documents prepared to get the loan sanctioned. However, the concerned person is not responding well. I want to know the Act that states that no bank can refuse to sanction the education loan without any valid reason in written. Thanks

For any sanction/refusal/rejection of a loan, the sanctioning authority has to get a note prepared and sign it duly. These are only internal guidelines and no specific Act is available for this.

 

If the branch incharge is not responding properly, your friend can raise an RTI application with the PIO of the concerned region of the bank and seek the reasons for the non-sanction of his loan application.

Please file an RTI Application with the PIO of the Regional Office of the Bank in Question and seek :

 

(1) Certified copy of Rules and procedures for sanctioning Education Loan for students pursuing studies in India as applicable at present

 

(2) Statement showing Education Loan disbursed by ..... Bank in ...... Region from 1/4/08 to 31/3/09 and from 1/4/09 to (date of your application).

 

(3) Certified copy of latest instructions, if any, for stopping & withholding applications of Education Loan applied by Students and pending for processing.
