As this impact of the latest pandemic of Covid-19 infections starts to play out, non-banking financial companies have asked this central bank to allow the fresh round of this loan restructuring for all the businesses and the consumers undergoing stress.
This is very feared that this second wave of this pandemic of Covid-19 would sometimes peak in May as well, then the total possibly starts climbing down in June. Handling the demand of the moratorium and restructuring from all the existing and deserving customers.
This already explained that most of the borrowers in this NBFC segment are truck or taxi owners or drivers, machine operators, or many people. These categories of professionals are being hit by the localized and state-wide lockdowns mandated in parts of the country.
The whole industry has requested that all the borrower accounts be allowed to undergo restructuring without any types of a downgrade in the asset classification, irrespective of whether they had been restructured on a very earlier occasion a very long as they were standard accounts.
That would also help standardize the approach followed by many of the lenders. They already have sought a standstill on the whole of the asset classification of the restructured accounts in Q1FY22.
Many of the other requests ask some of the banks and the financial institutions to allow the one-time restructuring of this type of like gold loan given by them to NBFCs with a whole of the asset size of under Rs 500 crore.
The lockdowns and the other restrictions on mobility have already begun to hurt NBFCs’ collections. As far as the SME business is concerned, this also remains lackluster as the lenders are shying very away from all new customers.
