NBFCs should remain cautious on lending as suggested by RBI, says FM

Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman on Thursday said NBFCs and small finance banks need to remain cautious while lending as suggested by the Reserve Bank. Speaking at 'DATE with Tech' event here, Sitharaman cautioned that NBFCs and small finance banks should respect the red line and should not go too far in their enthusiasm. "Enthusiasm is good but sometimes it becomes a bit too far for people to digest. So as a measure of caution the RBI has also alerted small finance banks, NBFCs to be careful that they don't go too far too soon and face any downside risks later," she said. Reserve Bank Governor Shaktikanta Das on Wednesday had said the central bank's tougher stance on unsecured loans earlier this month is a "preemptive" move aimed at ensuring financial stability. Following a massive rise in unsecured lending and delinquencies, the Reserve Bank on November 16 tightened the norms for unsecured consumer credit, asking banks and NBFCs to assign a higher risk weight. As a result, it

Securitisation volumes surge 60% to Rs 55,000 cr in Q1: Crisil Report

Robust loan collections and high credit growth at non-bank lenders led to 60 per cent jump in securitization volumes to Rs 55,000 crore in June quarter, a report said on Monday. This is the highest ever in the first quarter of a fiscal, rating agency Crisil said, attributing the growth to high demand from banks and non-bank finance companies (NBFCs) resorting to securitization as a funding route. Securitisation refers to an activity where a financier or lender transfers future receivables on a loan or a bunch of loans to other financiers which helps with immediate liquidity requirements. During the first quarter, the number of transactions went up to over 250 from 160 in the year-ago period, it said, adding that private and public sector banks continued to be the dominant investors, followed by foreign banks. There were 80 originators and 50 investors which were active during the quarter, the agency said. Securitisation is allowing banks to do two things: keep driving their credit
