In the last two years, the Government and the Reserve Bank of India (RBI)  have supported the Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) by way of loan restructuring, collateral-free working capital loans,  subordinated debt,  equity infusion through the funds of funds, and special treatment under the bankruptcy code. But the MSMEs demand is increasing day by day. They are now asking for relaxation in NPA classification, interest-free loans, deferment of statutory taxes, and also rationalisation in import duties. But it is time now to think beyond loan restructuring and regulatory forbearances. In a post-Covid world, the global supply chains are witnessing a structural shift, which offers a big opportunity for Indian and global companies. The cash flow-based lending by new-age NBFCs and Fintechs should be encouraged to benefit a large number of MSMEs. The government and the RBI should also support the online trade receivables discounting platforms to improve the MSMEs' working capital cycle. Last but not least, MSMEs will also have to take a lead in the adoption of technology, digitalization of factories, and improving corporate governance.

The government and LIC have taken a decision to offload the equity stake in the development financial institution turned IDBI Bank to a strategic investor. But the big question is at what price the stake will be sold to a strategic investor. At the current valuations, the bank will be sold at a dirt-cheap price.  In fact, the sale should be based on the forward-looking parameters, which are very encouraging for the bank. The bank has witnessed a turnaround with the first-ever profits in the last five years. It has completely shifted from a corporate bank to a retail bank, which is much secured in terms of asset quality. The LIC-IDBI Combo offers a huge opportunity to cross-sell as the insurance giants have crores of customers.  And finally, the new buyer has to pay a control premium for acquiring a large stake and also a banking license, which is difficult to get as there are many aspirants. Anand Adikari, Executive Edtior, Business Today looks at the valuation issues surrounding the stake sale.

The Reserve Bank of India is trying its best to keep the borrowings cost low for the government by keeping the long-term government securities (G-Sec) yields at a low level.  This support from the central bank is coming by way of surplus liquidity despite the signs of higher inflationary pressure. The CPI inflation projection for 2021-22 is at 5 percent as against the upper tolerance limit of 6 percent set by the government.  RBI  is defending its decision by reasoning that the G- Sec yield curve management is for the public good. It says the yield management not only brings down the government borrowing cost but also reduces the interest cost for corporate in the bond market. But it is easier said than done. There is a cost associated with keeping the interest low for an extended period and also managing G-Sec yields when the inflation expectations are high. Anand Adhikari, Executive Editor, Business Today, looks at the likely dangers and consequences of adopting such a policy of low-interest rates and yield management.

For the first time , the Fintech industry  which is offering small ticket size loans digitally  has  come under the scanner of the RBI for unhealthy lending practices in the market. The rise of instant loan app platforms has also encouraged many  unregulated entities , which are not registered with RBI as NBFCs to take  advantage of the small Borrowers. There are many apps that have tie-up with banks and NBFCs for loans. In  fact , the  casual approach of some of the regulated players is also responsible for  these bad practices.  The recent instances of borrowers committing  suicide has already forced the  RBI to set up a working group to study the issues like consumer protection , data privacy, charging high interest rates, and  harsh recovery methods. The Government and regulators have to monitor the space more closely to plug the regulatory gaps and  keep strengthening the regulations time and again. Digital lending is the future for serving the under - banked and under -served customers both in metros and rural areas. Anand Adhikari, Executive Editor, Business Today, explains more.

The Reserve Bank of India's working group has recommended allowing large corporate and industrial  houses to set up commercial banks.  This is a big shift in the RBI's policy of granting banking licenses. The working group is also in favour of allowing well established NBFCs promoted by the large industrial houses to convert into banking entities. But the banking Licensing framework for large corporations should fix credit gaps in the financial system. The country today needs large banking units to fund infrastructure and MSMEs to create future revenue generating assets like roads , ports and airports , support manufacturing and create a good network of ancillary units for the world  and create employment opportunities. The retail banking space is already a crowded space and entry of new banks would only create more clones of the same. Anand Adhikari, Executive Editor, Business Today, explains more.
