Explaining the rationale, the bank in a statement said education is one of the largest service sectors in the country with a combined market size of more than 450 million students and growth rates of 10-15% expected over the next decade.
The total market of education institutions is expected to increase to Rs2.5 trillion by the end of the year, and the education sector will have attractive margins, it said.
