New Delhi: With just less than a week remaining for the Finance Minister to present the Union Budget for 2016, the students community also have started building up expectations from the Narendra Modi-led NDA government at the Centre.

 

Students are hoping that exemptions against education loans can be extended to 10 years from the currently allowed 8 years. They hope that there will be no further rise in service tax otherwise educational institutions will increase their fees.

 

To make domestic higher education more affordable, the government must take adequate steps to decrease education loan rates across the board.
