Karnataka Bank Skill Loan Scheme

This loan helps students who have gained admission into technical courses offered by Industrial Training Institutes (ITIs), polytechnics, etc. to pay for their course fees. The loan amount starts from Rs. 5,000 and can go up to Rs. 1.5 lakh depending on the duration of the course.

Important! A reality check

While there is nothing wrong with a technical course, the jobs that become available after such courses (electrician, plumber, fitter, etc.) do not pay well – even in senior roles.
Alternatively, a career in computers and IT pays much better, with senior roles earning upwards of ₹25 lakh at the very least.

All you need to start learning is a laptop – even a second-hand one that costs less than ₹10k will do.
We have curated a list of low-cost courses that can be finished in 4-7 months and lead to rewarding careers.
