What is Rinn Raksha Insurance?

Rinn Raksha is an insurance scheme offered by the State Bank of India (SBI) for its education loan borrowers. This insurance scheme provides protection to the borrower's family in the unfortunate event of the borrower's untimely demise during the repayment tenure of the loan.

Under the "Rinn Raksha" scheme, SBI offers two types of insurance coverage options to education loan borrowers: Group Credit Life Insurance (GCLI) and Term Life Insurance (TLI). The GCLI provides coverage against the outstanding loan amount in case of the borrower's demise, while the TLI provides coverage against the total sum assured.

How to apply for an education loan at SBI via 24x7 Loan Services
Check Loan Eligibility

The first step is to check your loan eligibility with 24x7 Loan Services which will require you to fill out some details like personal details, target university, loan amount, and more.

Loan Processing

After checking your loan eligibility, an education loan counselor (ELC) from 24x7 Loan Services will contact you and provide a personalized document checklist. You'll need to arrange the documents while the ELC pushes your details to Axis Bank.

Bottlenecks in SBI education loan

Below, we describe typical bottlenecks that you should watch out for, along with ways in which we work around such bottlenecks to fast-track your education loan application.

Branch Side

All the documents are to be submitted before the starting of the sanctioning process. Additional documents may be required. Some SBI branches may not be very education loan friendly! From our experience of processing 1000s of education loans at SBI, we help identify the most experienced and friendly branch for you. We then liaise with the branch officials to present and discuss your case on your behalf. We present a customized checklist at the start so that you have to submit documents only once.

Legal Issues with the Property

The legal papers of your property and the property itself get verified by SBI empanelled advocates. The Turnaround Time (TAT) of the bank and the advocates is high and unpredictable. Also, many a time they don’t try hard enough to look for alternative documents and approaches if they find an issue with the documents or the property. 24x7 Loan Services has helped 1000s of students through such tough situations, and we can surely help you!

Technical Issues with the Property

Civil Engineers, empanelled by the SBI, evaluate the property by first visiting it, then measuring it, checking its location and age, and evaluating its Distress Sale Price, Fair Price, and Market Price. The Turnaround Time (TAT) of the Civil Engineer can be quite high and unpredictable. Through systematic follow-up, we get this step completed within 3 working days.

Case Studies

Removing obstacles to secure your education loan

When the property's sale deed of the student was not in order

A student with an admit offer from The University of Sydney required a with-collateral education loan of Rs. 40 lakhs. Initially, the student approached the State Bank of India directly but got a negative response from the Branch as his property’s sale deed was not in order. He then applied with us. At 24x7 Loan Services, we pre-screen education loan applications to identify key issues and find out the best possible solution available. Post an in-depth discussion with our legal consultant, we found a solution: a correction/conveyance deed. 24x7 Loan Services’s on-ground team got that deed executed and also got it registered with the sub- Registrar – that too in only 5 days, with minimal effort from the student. Post this, we formally applied with SBI and got approval for Rs. 40.56 lakhs in only 3 days.

When ownership of the property was not transferred to the legal heir

In another case, another applicant got an admit from San Diego State University and was looking for a with-collateral education loan of Rs. 20 lakhs. The issue with this case was that the property (Collateral) was in the name of the applicant’s father who had passed away recently and was not transferred to the applicant’s mother. Also, the student had a deadline for submitting financial documents. The student’s case was rejected on the property ownership grounds. He then contacted 24x7 Loan Services after reading one of our blogs on education loans which he came across while searching for solutions online. After pre-screening the case thoroughly, our representatives approached the Local Head Office of the bank to speak with the Assistant General Manager and helped in getting the ownership of the property transferred. Our team assisted the student throughout the process, helped his family with the hassle of bureaucracy, got the property transferred, and got the loan sanctioned on time, that too meeting the deadline.

When the student was in the 2nd year of the program

In this case, the student was already in her 2nd year of bachelor program at the University of Queensland. Her parents’ savings were utilized to fund her 1st year of the program. The student wanted to apply for loan to finance her remaining course. The student and her parents both were residing in Australia. She applied for around Rs. 50L loan with collateral. The property was in Kerala, India. But the loan application was rejected on the ground that property owners were residing in Australia. After the initial rejection, she approached 24x7 Loan Services for solutions. She came to know about 24x7 Loan Services through her friend in India who attended a seminar conducted by 24x7 Loan Services in Chennai. Our representatives approached the concerned authorities of SBI. We took out the rule book and provided the solution. The parents were called. They flew over to India. We helped them in completing the sanction process and disbursement as well on the same day in SBI. The bank approved a loan of Rs. 50L with Rs. 11L amount disbursed on the same day to the applicant.
