RBI increases banks’ loan exposure limit to single NBFC


Date: 13-09-2019
Subject: RBI increases banks’ loan exposure limit to single NBFC
The RBI on Thursday increased loan exposure limit of banks to a single NBFC (excluding gold loan companies) from 15 per cent to 20 per cent of its capital base, a move that will help increase credit supply to the crisis-ridden shadow banking sector.

According to the extant ‘Large Exposures Framework (LEF)’, banks’ exposure to a single non-banking financial company (NBFC) is restricted to 15 per cent of their available eligible capital base, while general single counter-party exposure limit is 20 per cent, which can be extended to 25 per cent by banks’ boards under exceptional circumstances.

“It has been decided that a bank’s exposure to a single NBFC (excluding gold loan companies) will be restricted to 20 per cent of that bank’s eligible capital base,” the central bank said in a circular. The government on its part has also been taking steps to increase liquidity in the NBFC sector, which was hit after default by IL&FS Group. The liquidity crunch in the NBFC sector has hit the retail loan segment in the country leading to slowdown in key consumer sector lending.
