Types of collateral accepted -
- Immovable assets - These can be real estate assets such as a land, house, flat, etc. It should be remembered here that agricultural land or land that falls under the jurisdiction of Gram Panchayat is not accepted as collateral by lenders. However, non-agricultural open land that has clear boundaries is accepted as collateral for secured education loans.
- Intangible assets - These are liquid securities such as fixed deposits, mutual funds, ULIPs, Life Insurance policies, Government Bonds, etc. The bank will keep the liquid securities such as FDs, However, the FD holder will continue to get any interest received on these intangible assets. Borrowers can pledge an old FD or even open a new FD for an education loan.
- Third-party secured education loan - This is a little-known type of collateral accepted by lenders and includes immovable assets of a third party (relative or friend).
