The main goal of IDBI is to help poor students with good merit get an opportunity to pursue higher education with the help from the bank with affordable terms and conditions. This belief emphasizes the construct and conduct of IDBI Bank’s education Loan scheme. IDBI also believes that the education loan scheme prepared on the basis of Model Education Scheme of Indian Bank Association (IBA) will be a practical business proposition.
