Can a student loan be discharged in bankruptcy?

In India, there is no provision to discharge student loan debt through bankruptcy. Student loans are considered a priority debt and cannot be discharged in a bankruptcy proceeding. However, some exceptional circumstances may qualify for loan forgiveness or discharge, such as permanent disability, death, or other serious circumstances. It is important to consult a financial expert or lawyer for specific guidance on individual circumstances.
