people living below the poverty line. It is a burning issue for the
people of the developing country like India for which they face
scatting problems to enrole their wards/sons & daughters in the
higher education institutions to shape the destiny of their
future life which leads to human resource development and
development of the country as a whole. To combat, education
loan is provided to students by several banks, and other alike

type of loan which is designed to help students pay for their

types of loan in that the interest rate is substantially lower and
the repayment schedule is deferred while the student is still in

cannot be claimed as a matter of right as it is a debt. Therefore,
the borrower is obliged to pay back or repay the under the

analysing the data following conclusions can be made

Though female beneficiaries in comparison to males is

more so far the case of availing loan opportunity is
concerned , still then it is observed that the refusal rate of
female is much more higher than the male to avail such
IN terms of averages and standard deviation of four
different categories it can be concluded that the data
variability is much more higher for females than the
From the analysis of co-efficient of variation it is seen that
the data for female is more efficient , consistent and
reliable. Since , the co efficient of variation of female is
smaller than the co-efficient of variation of male.
After getting the approval student educational loan from
the SBI branch at the particular area it is seen that the
most females student do not opt for the same than the
male student even after getting a relaxation of 0.05 %
interest rate during reimbursement. This might be the
reason that female students in the last few years past
their intermediate level with high percentage than the
male students in the area for which their enhance of
getting educational scholarship given by different
agencies is higher than the male.

The data source shown in the table below is considered for
analysis based on the methodology mentioned earlier.
