After the hike in repo rates by RBI, the interest rates of education loans offered by the top banks in the country were also raised.

Education loans are sanctioned as a floating-rate retail loan, which are linked to an external benchmark. For most banks, this external benchmark is the repo rate, which means that education loans have become costlier since the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) increased the repo rates in the past few months. Cumulatively so far, the central bank has hiked the key policy rate by 140 basis points.
