Education Loan Interest Rate
Lowest Interest Rate Student Loan Options For Abroad Studies
Interest rate is the amount of money charged on the principal loan amount by a lender. If you borrow money from someone, you will have to pay some monthly amount over and above the principal amount. In simple terms, it is the cost of borrowing money from a bank or other financial institution. In abroad education loans, even a slight variation in interest rate per annum can make a significant difference in the total amount repaid!

EMI = Principal Amount + Interest Amount
There are two ways to calculate an interest rate –
 Simple Interest
 Simple Interest = Principal Amount x Rate of Interest x Time/100
For Example  you borrow INR 50,000 for 1 year at a 5% interest rate, then according to the formula, you owe INR 2500 as interest. When repaying the borrowed amount, you will have to make an extra payment of INR 2500 as a fee.
 Compound Interest
 A = P (1 + r/n) ^ nt
Here, A denotes the compound interest amount, P is the principal amount, r is the interest rate per annum, n is the number of times in a year the interest gets compounded, and t stands for the number of years.
For example, you borrowed INR 10 lakhs at an interest rate of 10% for 5 years. The total interest on this amount is INR 4,97,916.
 Total interest to be paid  4,97,916
 Total Payment (Principal + Interest)  14,97,916
 EMI per month  24,965
 A = P (1 + r/n) ^ nt
In an education loan, the interest charged is a combination of both. During the study period, simple interest is charged, and after, compound interest is charged.
