    Possible Bottlenecks In An Axis Bank Education Loan

    Here are some bottlenecks that typically arise when getting an Axis Bank Education Loan. We’ll also explain how UniCreds works around such bottlenecks to fast-track your education loan application.

    Course Not Listed In Bank’s Records
    In order to sanction education loans, Axis Bank generally refers to its own categorical list of courses. Now with the new developments in academia, new interdisciplinary courses are mushrooming in universities all over the world. However, due to the bank’s limited expertise in the nomenclature of these new courses, many deserving students opting for such courses don’t get their loans sanctioned or their loan applications considered. UniCreds’ dedicated research team poses a solution to this problem. Our research team has dived deeply into the curriculum and structure of such courses and compared the course’s salient features with the other STEM courses. Hence, we inform the concerned bank officials about the similarities between the characteristics of the new and STEM courses. By providing course annexures to the bank officials, we have hitherto helped many students, whose loan applications were initially rejected because of their desired course not being included in the bank’s list, to get their loan applications accepted and loans sanctioned.
    Technical Issues with the Collateral
    The evaluation process of the applicant’s property is undertaken by Civil Engineers, empanelled by Axis Bank. This is an extremely lengthy and time-consuming process. Civil engineers first visit the property, measure it, check its location and age, and calculate its Distress Sale Price, Fair Price, Market Price. The Turnaround Time (TAT) of the Civil Engineer therefore can be quite high and unpredictable. But with our systematic follow-up, we get this step completed in 3 working days.
    Legal Issues with the Collateral
    In case of secured loan requests, the property of the applicant and its supporting legal papers are verified by Axis Bank empanelled advocates. However, The Turnaround Time (TAT) of the bank and the advocates is high, that is, the officials involved tend to delay the verification process when they come across discrepancies in the property or related documents. Here is where UniCreds comes to your rescue as we along with the bank look for alternative solutions when such a problem arises. UniCreds prevents property/document-related issues from coming in your way to availing an education loan.
    Issues with the CIBIL
    Sometimes, the CIBIL of the co-applicant is not in order, which can result in the rejection of a loan application. In such cases, we get in touch with the concerned bank officials and track the deviations to come up with a solution. Generally, there are cases in which the score of the co-applicant may be poor due to past defaults, or the current status of the credit report may be good but there could be issues from the bank’s side. We suggest the scale of risk involved to the concerned bank authorities so that they can take the appropriate action.
