PTPTN loan repayment is a crucial obligation for all borrowers. As a borrower, you must be aware of the terms and conditions of your loan, including the repayment schedule. Therefore, we will share some vital details that you need to know about PTPTN loan repayment.
1. Repay the loan after 12 months from the end of the loan reimbursement period WITHOUT waiting for the Repayment Notice
Borrowers can make repayments after the end of the loan disbursement period. For example, if the borrower completes the loan in November 2023, they can start making repayments in the following 12 months, which is in December 2024.
2. Make early payments
Borrowers are encouraged to make early repayments within 12 months (prior to the generated Repayment Schedule) as there will be no administration fee of 1%, known as Ujrah, imposed on borrowers.
3. Service fees (Ujrah)
Borrowers will be charged a monthly administration fee starting from the 13th month. The charges will be stated in the loan statement.
4. Loan repayment period
PTPTN loan repayment is based on the total loan balance received. For instance, if you borrow RM10,000, the remaining balance (including Ujrah and takaful) will be needed to repay over the specified period in the loan agreement. So, there are no hidden costs.
