Course Fees: The total program fees will be Rs. 3.5 Lacs (all inclusive of boarding, Lodging and course fees, other fees, etc.) plus service taxes.

Education Load and Fees Financing: Students can finance the course fees by availing an Education Loan which will be granted by Syndicate Bank as per Synd Vidya Scheme. Students can therefore obtain a high quality specialized course in Banking and Finance without any monetary burden on them and fully financed by the Bank. The EMIs for the loan would start on completion of the course duration (i.e. one year from admission). There would be no recovery of EMIs or interest during the training period and the interest accrued during this period would be recovered along with the normal EMIs. The EMIs are spread over
a period of 84 months (7 years) to ensure that there is minimal impact in the monthly earnings of the PO.

Stipend and Incentives: During nine months class room training the students shall be paid a sum of Rs 2500/- pm as stipend and during the three month internship in the branch a stipend of Rs 10000/- pm shall be paid.
The successful candidates who join the bank as Probationary Officers shall be paid loyalty bonus of Rs1,00,000/- per year for next five years after completion of five years of satisfactory service in bank subject to education loan being regular if availed.

Salary and Remuneration: Syndicate Bank hasn’t disclosed the salary it will be offering to the PO candidates joining the bank but our guess is that it will be same as regular PO salary.
