What will happen if the borrower can't repay education loan?
If a borrower defaults on repayment and is not able to repay education loan, it will hamper their future credit opportunities. It would also create problems for the guarantors, and the collateral offered will be at stake. To avoid trouble, borrowers should have a backup plan for repayment even if they don't get a job or fail to repay after the moratorium period.
