Education fintech company GrayQuest has collaborated with SBM Bank India to facilitate access of affordable funds to its clients. Established in 2017, GrayQuest is working towards increasing convenience of educational fee payments in the country. It has partnered with more than 2000 schools, colleges and universities across the country. GrayQuest allows parents to pay their children’s education fees in easy monthly payments.

Parents can sign up for the monthly payment option within five minutes on the GrayQuest platform through a secured, convenient and paperless process, converting their annual or bulk semester school/college fees into affordable monthly payments at no extra cost, the company said in a statement today.

GrayQuest parents also receive benefits such as complimentary insurance cover and access to 50+ exclusive rewards for their children, it added.

Commenting on the partnership with SBM Bank India, Rishab Mehta, Founder and CEO, GrayQuest, said, “According to our data, the average Indian household spends 13 per cent of their annual income on the education fees per child. With rising fees and the growing aspirations of parents in their choice of education for their children, paying education fees is now a significant expenditure for most households. Covid-19 has further increased the financial burden on parents. We, at GrayQuest, feel that the current structure of bulk education fee payments can be made significantly more convenient and affordable for parents.”

“Our partnership with SBM Bank is a major step in that regard which will significantly lower the cost and boost our ability to facilitate such financing for the end consumer,” Mehta added.

The statement said that SBM Bank India will facilitate access to affordable funds to GrayQuest’s clients. It will also empower them to address their holistic banking requirements.

Speaking on the partnership and Bank’s foray into education lending space, Neeraj Sinha, Head -Retail and Consumer Banking, SBM Bank India Limited, said, “Education, the world over has been considered to be the passport to a better life. In a country, where the core belief stems from Padhoge Likhoge Banoge Nawaab, education is the most important investment and not mere expense for each and every parent.”
