“Education is the primary right of every citizen of India” everybody knows it but when a child grows and passes higher secondary education at that time this “Primary right” remains a dream for millions of students in India. According to the 2011 census report 74.05 % Indians are literate but only 8.15 % of Indians are graduates. And the biggest reason behind this weak growth of Academic literacy is lack of finance available with families of students. Govt. of initiated many credit programs for Academic students under which many banking & non banking corporations are working. But there is one banking institution in our nation which is very concerned about young Indians’s academic future i.e. UCO BANK .
Serving from the last 78 years , UCO Bank has now 3078 branches in all over India. As Covid 19 pandemic hit our nation very badly which brought enormous loss to Indian economy. But if anybody has borne or still bearing serious loss in our nation that is the Education Industry & Students . Mainly those students who are willing to pursue Academic education but due to lack of funds they could not or can not. But now young Indians don’t need to worry anymore because for them UCO BANK brought Academic Education loan schemes at 2.40 % rate of interest. You read it absolutely right, only 2.40% flat rate of interest.
