In India, ‘Small and medium enterprises’ (SME) is a generic term used to describe Small Scale
Industrial (SSI) units and medium scale industrial units. An SSI unit should neither be a
subsidiary of any other industrial unit nor can it be owned or controlled by any other industrial
unit. SSI units deal with a total investment in its fixed assets or leased assets up to Rs 10 million.
Medium unit is that unit which deals with investment up to Rs 100 million.

The SME sector produces a wide range of industrial product such as food products, beverages,
tobacco and tobacco products, cotton textiles, wool, silk, synthetic products, jute products, wood
products, furniture and fixtures, paper products, printing publishing and electrical machinery. It
has also a large number of service industries.

The number of SSI working units (registered or unregistered) in India totaled 11.4 million in
2003-04- 80.5% of which are proprietary concerns and 16.8% are partnership firms and private
limited companies.

SMEs in India met the expectations of the government in this respect. SMEs developed in a
manner, which made it possible for them to achieve the following objectives:

 High contribution to domestic production

 Significant export earnings
 Low investment requirements
 Operational flexibility
 Location wise mobility
 Low intensive imports
 Capacities to develop appropriate indigenous technology
 Import substitution
 Contribution towards defense production
 Technology- oriented industries
 Competitiveness in domestic and exports market
In the Indian context, we have not so far defined medium enterprises clearly. What is neither
small nor large is being loosely defined as medium. Further, enterprise encompasses businesses,
services and industries. In the broadband of ‘Small’, the discussion extends to medium as well.

Small and medium enterprises, both in size and shape, are not uniform across the globe. This
asymmetry comes in the way of any effort of their integration. The way they are defining depends
on the stage of economic development and broad policy purposes for which the definition is used.
According to World Bank study, there are said to be more than 60 definitions of small and
medium industries used in 75 countries surveyed. The most commonly used definitions relate to
either size of employment and/or quantum of capital investment / fixed assets. As the process of
economic development leads to change in industrial sector shares in GDP and the contribution of
sub-sectors with in industry, the definition is extended to include not only manufacturing
industries but all enterprises which fall within or below they defined cutoff point.

SME financing is a part of priority sector lending in India.

In accordance with the provision of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises Development
(MSMED) Act, 2006 the Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSME) are classified into 2

(a) Manufacturing Enterprises- The enterprises engaged in the manufacture or production

of goods pertaining to any industries specified in the 1st schedule to the Industries
Development and Regulation act, 1951.
(b) Service Enterprises-The enterprises engaged in provided or rendering of services and
are defined in terms of investment in equipment.

The limit for investment in plant and machinery /equipment for manufacturing/
services enterprises, as notified, vide S.O. 1642(E) dated. 29-09-2006 is as under:
Manufacturing sector
Enterprises Investment in plant & machinery
Micro Does not exceed twenty five lakh rupees
Small More than twenty five lakh rupees but does not exceed
Enterprises five crore rupees
Medium More than five crore rupees but does not exceed ten crore
Enterprises rupees
Service sector
Enterprises Investment in equipments
Micro Does not exceed ten lakh rupees
Small More than ten lakh rupees but does not exceed two
Enterprises crore rupees
Medium More than two crore rupees but does not exceed five
Enterprises crore rupees

Importance of MSME

 Creates employment
 Sources of investment and revenue
 Boots personal wealth and talent
 Outlets for the talents of enterprising people
 Catalyze innovations and dynamism
 Stimulate personal savings
 Promotes community stability
 Less harm to the environment than large companies
 Raise level of people participation in the economy
 Vital engine of economy
 Earn foreign exchange
 Stimulate growth in rural areas
 Expand domestic markets/penetrate non-traditional markets
 Boosting industrial growth
 Inspiring consumption and Social Changes
 Discourages migration to urban areas
 Fuelling the local economy

 The MSME sector is often driven by industrial creativity. A major strength of the sector is its
potential for greater innovation both in terms of products and processes.
 An inherent strength of the sector is that these enterprises can be set up with very small
amounts of investments and have the locational flexibility to be located anywhere in the
 Their employment potential is higher compared to large enterprises and are presently
estimated to employ 6 crore persons. They are amenable to ancilliarisation and thus have
natural linkages with large enterprises.


 A major weakness is a heritage weakness. Due to the protectionist, subsidy-driven, reservation

based regime, the mindset of sector continues to demanded similar legacy treatments.
 Most of the time, the equity is coming from savings and loans from friends and relatives rather
than through banking systems. Very, often the credit is coming from operations or domestic
savings rather than established systems of cheap banking credit for working capital. This
problem is particularly acute for the village industries as well as the lower end of micro
 While we have large pool of human resources, this sector continues to face shortage of skilled
manpower due to lack of paying capacity and poor managerial capabilities. Another major
weakness is absence of marketing channels and brand building capacity.
 A major weakness is a heritage weakness. Due to the protectionist, subsidy-driven, reservation
based regime, the mindset of the sector continues to demand similar legacy treatments.

Despite its commendable contribution to the nation’s economy, SME sector does not get the is a
handicap in becoming more competitive in the national and international markets required support
from the concerned Government

Departments, Banks, Financial institutions and corporate, which is a handicap in becoming more
competitive in the National and International markets. The MSMEs face problems at every stage of
their operation.

These industries are therefore not in a position to secure the internal and external economies of scale.

The major problems confronting the sector have been identified as:

Small scale units to face several difficulties in the marketing and distribution of
their products. Most of them do not have their own marketing network. They find it difficult to
sell their output at remunerative prices due to higher cost of production and non-standardized
quality of products. They cannot afford to spend much on advertising, sales, promotion, and
marketing research etc. They have to sell their products at throwaway prices due to weak
bargaining power and immediate need for money. They also face stiff competition from large


All kinds of business enterprises require sufficient funds in order to meet their
fixed as well as working capital requirements. Finance is one of the critical inputs for growth and
development of the micro, small and medium enterprises. They need credit support not only for
running the enterprise and operational requirements but also for diversification,
modernization/upgradation of facilities, capacity expansion, etc. Inadequate access to credit is a
major problem facing micro, small and medium enterprises. Generally, such segments operate on
tight budgets, often financed through owner’s own contribution, loans from friends and relatives
and some bank credit. They are often unable to procure adequate financial resources for the
purchase of machinery, equipment and raw materials as well as meeting day-to-day expenses.
This is because, on account of their low goodwill and little fixed investments, they find it difficult
to borrow at reasonable interest rates. As a result, they have to depend largely on internal


Non-availability of quality raw materials on a timely basis in an adequate quantity

is one of the main problems faces by MSMEs. There is acuteStorage of even the basic raw
materials required by small scale units. These units are handicap in obtaining raw materials of
requisite quality and quantity at reasonable prices. They do not get the benefits of bulk buying.
For instance, the handloom industry is facing shortage of yarn. Small scale industries also face
shortage of power due to which they are unable to make full utilization of plant capacity. Majority
of them cannot afford to install their own power generating plants to ensure uninterrupted


Majority of the small scale units use old techniques of production and outdated
machinery and equipment. Upgradation of the technology and achieving economies of scale is one
of the major problems facing the sector. There is lack of trained and experienced employees
because small firms can’t pay high salaries cannot spend much on training their employees. Small
scale firms find it difficult to recruit and motivate skilled managerial and technical personnel as
they look for better opportunities in the large scale industries. Therefore they get the second rate
talent or have to depend on family members who do not have diversified skills.
With focus of growth now being on inclusive growth, the role of MSMEs sector in India’s socio
economic development also needs to be ascertained appropriately. With a view to address the
impediments for the sector’s growth, GOI has initiated various steps schemes. Adequate credit flow
being one of the bottlenecks, credit rating assists in rationalized lending decisions through proper
analysis of the credit risk.

The importance of MSMEs to the Indian economy has never been a content years issue for the
policy makers and the stakeholders likewise. What has, however, varied the approach and
prioritization for the development of the sector. The MSMEs are one of the constituents of our
economy in terms of their contribution to country’s industrial production, exports, employment
and creation of an entrepreneurial base.


 Unstructured information flow

 Lack of evaluation expertise with limited information and diverse nature of operations
 High risk perception resulting in avoidance by many institutions and banks
 High transaction cost
 High operational risk due to inability to attract capable management and technological
 Lack of collateral
 Historically high default rates
 Diverse clients with diverse needs
 Credit Rating dimension

The Advantages of credit rating for MSMEs include:

 Increased funding options as credit ratings are widely recognized by banks, financial
institutions and other investors
 Faster processing of loan application by banks/FIs
 Assist in capability assessment by exiting/prospective clients
 Credibility and favorable trade terms with suppliers and customers
 Meet regulatory requirements

Credit rating for the MSMEs segment is generally segregated three product offerings:

1. SME ratings;
2. SSI ratings through NSIC; and
3. Bank facility ratings.
1. SME Ratings
The SME Rating assigned by CARE is an issue specific, onetime assessment of the
credit risk of the rated entity in comparison with credit risk of other SMEs. The rating incorporates
credit risk over a one year horizon and the reflection of the overall debt management capability of
the entity without any differentiation amongst various credit facilities availed by the SME unit. The
rating may be reviewed in case of developments of substantial importance regarding the entity or
its environment. This rating is applicable to business enterprises, viz. public/private limited
companies, partnership/ sole proprietorship firms, co-operative societies etc.

The Rating scale for SME ratings is presented below:

Rating scale Definition

 CARE SME 1 Highest credit quality with negligible credit risk
CARE SME 2 High Credit Quality with Very Low Credit Risk
CARE SME 3 Above Average credit quality with low credit
CARE SME 4 Average credit quality with average credit risk
CARE SME 5 Below Average Credit Quality with Above
Average Credit Risk
CARE SME 6 Low Credit quality with High Credit Risk
CARE SME 7 Very poor Credit Quality with Very High Credit
CARE SME 8 Lowest Credit Quality with Highest Credit Risk

SSI Ratings
The salient features of the NSIC –CARE performance and credit rating for SSI units are:
 All registered SSIs eligible
 75% subsidy from NSIC for rating fees
 15-point rating scale indicating performance capability and financial strength

Rating Matrix Financial strength

High Moderate Low
Highest SE SE 1B SE
1A 1C
High SE SE 2B SE
2A 2C
Performance Moderate SE SE 3B SE
Capability 3A 3C
Weak SE SE 4B SE
4A 4C
Poor SE SE 5B SE
5A 5C

Like SME Ratings, the rating assigned by CARE is an issuer specific onetime assessment of the performance
capability and credit risk of the rated entity in comparison with that of other SSI units. The rating has a
validity of one year and may be reviewed in case of developments of substantial importance. The rating is
applicable to all types of business enterprises, viz., public/private limited companies, partnerships/sole
proprietorship firms, co-operative societies etc.

2. Bank Facility Ratings

With the BASEL II guidelines in place and credit rating being one of the
requirements for all bank exposures above Rs. 10 crore, large number of MSMEs have come under
the preview of credit rating. However , because of the fact that the reserve bank of India (RBI)
guidelines for BASEL II framework for banks recognize the long term (AAA to D) and short term
(PR1+ to PR5) instrument rating scales of recognized rating agencies such as CARE, large number
of SMEs have been rated on that scale.

 Outlook :
The importance of MSMEs for the overall economy cannot be overstated. Besides the
growth potential of the sector and its critical role in the manufacturing and value chains, the
heterogeneity and the unorganized nature of the Indian MSMEs are important aspects that need to
be factored into credit decisions. With focus of growth now being on inclusive growth, the role of
MSME sector in India’s socio economic development also needs to be ascertained appropriately.
With a view to address the impediments for the sector’s growth, GOI has initiated various steps
and schemes. Adequate credit flow being one of the bottlenecks, credit risk. Gradually , the
coverage of MSMEs for credit rating is expected to increase.

1. The bank shall continue to lay emphasis on financing Micro, Small &Medium Enterprises and our

Enterprises advances (i.e. manufacturing\ service enterprises having investment in plant and
machinery / equipment up to Rs.25/Rs.10 lakh) in the advances to Small Enterprises to 60%.
4. The reserve bank of India guidelines on financing SMEs. These guidelines on timely sanctioning of
SME applications, margin, rate of interest, collateral security, etc shall continue to be adhered to.
5. Disposal of Loan Applications within the prescribed time limit is to be ensured. Up to Rs.2.00 lakh
within 2 weeks (against RBI prescribed norms for loans up to Rs 25000/-), above Rs.2 lakh & up
to Rs 5.00 lakh within 4 weeks and above Rs 5.00 lakh within 8-9 weeks.
6. The bank has specialized SME branches to support finance to SME units. The bank has plans/
approvals to open more such branches during 2008-09. These branches shall be developed as
centers of excellence in SME financing.
7. The various service sector enterprises shall be financed taking advantages of the new investment
limits in equipment under MSMED act 2006.
8. The bank has approved independent rating agencies like SMERA, CRISIL, ICRA & ONICRA etc. for
rating the SME units.
9. With the revised policy guidelines on definition of Medium Enterprises under Micro, Small &
Medium Enterprises Development Act 2006, Bank shall focus on these units for financing and

Common Guidelines / Instructions for Lending to MSME Sector

 Issue of Acknowledgement of Loan Applications to MSME borrowers

Banks have been advised to mandatorily acknowledge all loan applications, submitted manually or online,
by their MSME borrowers and ensure that a running serial number is recorded on the application form as
well as on the acknowledgement receipt. Banks are further encouraged to start Central Registration of
loan applications. The same technology may be used for online submission of loan applications as also for
online tracking of loan applications.

 Collateral
Banks are mandated not to accept collateral security in the case of loans up to Rs.10 lakh extended to units
in the MSE sector. Banks are also advised to extend collateral-free loans up to Rs. 10 lakh to all units
financed under the Prime Minister Employment Generation Programme of KVIC. Banks may, on the basis
of good track record and financial position of the MSE units, increase the limit of dispensation of collateral
requirement for loans up to Rs.25 lakh (with the approval of the appropriate authority).
Banks are advised to strongly encourage their branch level functionaries to avail of the Credit Guarantee
Scheme cover, including making performance in this regard a criterion in the evaluation of their field staff.

 Composite loan
A composite loan limit of Rs.1 crore can be sanctioned by banks to enable the MSE
Entrepreneurs to avail of their working capital and term loan requirement through Single Window.

 Specialized MSME branches

Public sector banks have been advised to open at least one specialized branch in each district. Further,
banks have been permitted to categorize their MSME general banking branches having 60% or more of
their advances to MSME sector in order to encourage them to open more specialized MSME branches for
providing better service to this sector as a whole. As per the policy package announced by the Government
of India for stepping up credit to MSME sector, the public sector banks will ensure specialized MSME
branches in identified clusters/centers with preponderance of small enterprises to enable the
entrepreneurs to have easy access to the bank credit and to equip bank personnel to develop requisite
The existing specialized SSI branches may also be redesignated as MSME branches. Though their core
competence will be utilized for extending finance and other services to MSME sector, they will have
operational flexibility to extend finance/render other services to other sectors/borrowers.
 Delayed Payment

Under the Amendment Act, 1998 of Interest on Delayed Payment to Small Scale and Ancillary Industrial
Undertakings, penal provisions have been incorporated to take care of delayed payments to MSME units.
After the enactment of the Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises Development (MSMED), Act 2006, the
existing provisions of the Interest on Delayed Payment Act, 1998 to Small Scale and Ancillary Industrial
Undertakings, have been strengthened as under:

(i) The buyer has to make payment to the supplier on or before the date agreed upon
between him and the supplier in writing or, in case of no agreement, before the appointed day.
The period agreed upon between the supplier and the buyer shall not exceed forty five days from the date
of acceptance or the day of deemed acceptance.
(ii) In case the buyer fails to make payment of the amount to the supplier, he shall be liable to pay
compound interest with monthly rests to the supplier on the amount from the appointed day or, on the
date agreed on, at three times of the Bank Rate notified by Reserve Bank.
(iii) For any goods supplied or services rendered by the supplier, the buyer shall be liable to pay the
interest as advised at (ii) above.
(iv) In case of dispute with regard to any amount due, a reference shall be made to the
Micro and Small Enterprises Facilitation Council, constituted by the respective State
Government. Further, banks have been advised to fix sub-limits within the overall working capital limits to
the large borrowers specifically for meeting the payment obligation in respect of purchases from MSMEs.

 Revised Guidelines for Rehabilitation of Sick Micro and Small Enterprises

In view of the recommendations of Working Group on rehabilitation of potentially viable sick units
(Chairman: Dr. K. C. Chakrabarty), regarding changing the definition of sickness and the procedure for
assessing the viability of sick MSE units, a Committee was set up by the Ministry of MSME to look into the
issue. Based on the recommendation of the Committee, revised guidelines for rehabilitation of sick units in
the MSE sector have been issued vide our circular RPCD.CO.MSME & NFS.BC.40/06.02.31/2012-2013
dated November 1, 2012.
The objective of the revised guidelines is to hasten the process of identification of a unit as sick, early
detection of incipient sickness, and to lay down a procedure to be adopted by banks before declaring a unit
as unviable.
As per the new guidelines, a Micro or Small Enterprise (as defined in the MSMED Act 2006) may be said to
have become Sick, if (a) any of the borrowal account of the enterprise remains NPA for three months or
more OR (b) there is erosion in the net worth due to accumulated losses to the extent of 50% of its net
worth during the previous accounting year. The revised guidelines also provide the procedures to be
adopted by the banks before declaring any unit as unviable. Banks have been advised that the decision on
viability of the unit should be taken at the earliest but not later than 3 months of becoming sick under any
circumstances and the rehabilitation package should be fully implemented within six months from the
date the unit is declared as 'potentially viable' / 'viable'.

 Micro and Small Enterprises Sector – The imperative of Financial Literacy and
consultancy support

Keeping in view the high extent of financial exclusion (92 per cent) in the MSME sector, it is
imperative for banks that the excluded units are brought within the fold of the formal banking sector. The
lack of financial literacy, operational skills, including accounting and finance, business planning etc.
represent formidable challenge for MSE borrowers underscoring the need for facilitation by banks in these
critical financial areas. Moreover, MSE enterprises are further handicapped in this regard by absence of
scale and size. To effectively and decisively address these handicaps, Scheduled commercial banks have
been advised vide our circular RPCD.MSME & NFS.BC.No.20/06.02.31/2012-13 dated August 1, 2012 that
the banks could either separately set up special cells at their branches, or vertically integrate this function
in the Financial Literacy Centres (FLCs) set up by them, as per their comparative advantage. The bank staff
should also be trained through customised training programs to meet the specific needs of the sector.

 Structured Mechanism for monitoring the credit growth to the MSE sector

In view of the concerns emerging from the deceleration in credit growth to the MSE sector, an Indian
Banking Association (IBA)-led Sub-Committee (Chairman: Shri K.R. Kamath) was set up to suggest a
structured mechanism to be put in place by banks to monitor the entire gamut of credit related issues
pertaining to the sector. Based on the recommendations of the Committee, banks have been advised to:

 strengthen their existing systems of monitoring credit growth to the sector and put in place a
system-driven comprehensive performance management information system (MIS) at every
supervisory level (branch, region, zone, head office) which should be critically evaluated on a
regular basis;

 put in place a system of e-tracking of MSE loan applications and monitor the loan application
disposal process in banks, giving branch-wise, region-wise, zone-wise and State-wise positions.
The position in this regard is to be displayed by banks on their websites; and

 Monitor timely rehabilitation of sick MSE units. The progress in rehabilitation of sick MSE units is
to be made available on the website of banks.
Detailed guidelines have been issued to the scheduled commercial banks vide our circularRPCD.
MSME&NFS.BC.No. 74 /06.02.31/2012-13 dated May 9, 2013.

 Revised General Credit Card (GCC) Scheme

In order to enhance the coverage of GCC Scheme to ensure greater credit linkage for all
productive activities within the overall Priority Sector guidelines and to capture all credit
extended by banks to individuals for non-farm entrepreneurial activity, the GCC guidelines have been
revised on December 2, 2013.
 State Level Inter Institutional Committee
In order to deal with the problems of co-ordination for rehabilitation of sick micro and small units, State
Level Inter-Institutional Committees (SLIICs) were set up in the States. However, the matter of
continuation or otherwise, of the SLIIC Forum has been left to the individual States / Union Territory. The
meetings of these Committees are convened by Regional Offices of RBI and presided over by the Secretary,
Industry of the concerned State Government. It provides a useful forum for adequate interfacing between
the State Government Officials and State Level Institutions on the one side and the term lending
institutions and banks on the other. It closely monitors timely sanction of working capital to units which
have been provided term loans by SFCs, implementation of special schemes such as Margin Money Scheme
of State Government and reviews general problems faced by industries and sickness in MSE sector based
on the data furnished by banks. Among others, the representatives of the local state level MSE associations
are invited to the meetings of SLIIC which are held quarterly. A sub-committee of SLIIC looks
into the problems of individual sick MSE unit and submits its recommendations to the forum of SLIIC for

 Empowered Committee on MSMEs

As part of the announcement made by the Union Finance Minister, at the Regional Offices of Reserve Bank
of India, Empowered Committees on MSMEs have been constituted under the Chairmanship of the
Regional Directors with the representatives of SLBC Convenor, senior level officers from two banks having
predominant share in MSME financing in the state, representative of SIDBI Regional Office, the Director of
Industries of the State Government, one or two senior level representatives from the MSME/SSI
Associations in the state, and a senior level officer from SFC/SIDC as members. The Committee will meet
periodically and review the progress in MSME financing as also rehabilitation of sick Micro, Small and
Medium units. It will also coordinate with other banks/financial institutions and the state government in
removing bottlenecks, if any, to ensure smooth flow of credit to the sector. The committees may decide the
need to have similar committees at cluster/district levels.
 Debt Restructuring Mechanism for MSMEs

(i) As part of announcement made by the Hon'ble Finance Minister for stepping up credit to small and
medium enterprises, a debt restructuring mechanism for units in MSME sector has been formulated by
Department of Banking Operations & Development of Reserve Bank of India and advised all commercial
banks vide circular DBOD.BP.BC.No. 34/21.04.132/2005-06 dated September 8, 2005. These detailed
guidelines have been issued to ensure restructuring of debt of all eligible small and medium enterprises.
These guidelines would be applicable to the following entities, which are viable or potentially viable:
(a) All non-corporate MSMEs irrespective of the level of dues to banks.

discretionary One Time Settlement scheme for recovery of non-performing loans for the MSE sector, with
the approval of the Board of Directors and
(b) Implement recommendations with regard to timely and adequate flow of credit to the
MSE sector.
(iii) Banks have been advised to give wide publicity to the One Time settlement scheme
implemented by them, by placing it on the bank’s website and through other possible modes of
dissemination. They may allow reasonable time to the borrowers to submit the application and also make
payment of the dues in order to extend the benefits of the scheme to eligible borrowers.

 Cluster Approach

(i) 60 clusters have been identified by the Ministry of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises, Government
of India for focused development of Small Enterprises sector. All SLBC Convenor banks have been advised
to incorporate in their Annual Credit Plans, the credit requirement in the clusters identified by the
Ministry of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises, Government of India.
As per Ganguly Committee recommendations banks have been advised that a full-service
approach to cater to the diverse needs of the MSE sector may be achieved through extending banking
services to recognized MSE clusters by adopting a 4-C approach namely, Customer focus, Cost control,
Cross sell and Contain risk. A cluster based approach to lending may be more beneficial:

(a) In dealing with well-defined and recognized groups;

(b) Availability of appropriate information for risk assessment and
(c) Monitoring by the lending institutions.

Clusters may be identified based on factors such as trade record, competitiveness and growth prospects
and/or other cluster specific data.
(ii) As per announcement made by the Governor in paragraph 157 of the Annual Policy
Statement 2007-08, all SLBC Convener banks have been advised vide letter RPCD.PLNFS.No.

micro and small entrepreneurs from the Minorities Communities residing in the minority concentrated
districts of the country.
(iv) In terms of recommendations of the Prime Minister’s Task Force on MSMEs banks
should open more MSE focused branch offices at different MSE clusters which can also act as Counseling
Centres for MSEs. Each lead bank of a district may adopt at least one MSE cluster.

Chapter- 5
Credit Appraisal

Meaning - The process by which a lender appraises the creditworthiness of the prospective borrower is
known as Credit Appraisal. This normally involves appraising the borrower’s payment history and
establishing the quality and sustainability of his income. The lender satisfies himself of the good
intentions of the borrower, usually through an interview.

 The credit requirement must be assessed by all Indian Financial Institutions or specialised
institution set up for this purpose.
 Wherever financing of infrastructure project is taken up under a consortium / syndication
arrangement – bank’s exposure shall not exceed 25%
 Bank may also take up financing infrastructure project independently / exclusively in respect of
borrowers /promoters of repute with excellent past record in project implementation.
 In such cases due diligence on the inability of the projects are well defined and assessed. State
government guarantee may not be taken as a substitute for satisfactory credit appraisal.

The important thing to remember is not to be overwhelmed by marketing or profit centre reasons to book
a loan but to take a balanced view when booking a loan, taking into account the risk reward aspects.
Generally everyone becomes optimistic during the upswing of the business cycle, but tend to forget to
see how the borrower will be during the downturn, which is a short-sighted approach. Furthermore
greater emphasis is given on financials, which are usually outdated; this is further exacerbated by the
fact that a descriptive approach is usually taken, rather than an analytical approach, to the credit. Thus a
forward looking approach should also be adopted, since the loan will be repaid primarily from future
cash flows, not historic performance; however both can be used as good repayment indicators.

Procedure for providing Bank Credit-

Banks offers different types of credit facilities to the eligible borrowers. For this, there are several
procedures, controls and guidelines laid out. Credit Appraisal, Sanctions, Monitoring and Asset Recovery
Management comprise the entire gamut of activities in the lending process of a bank which are clearly
shown as below:


Monitoring & Asset


From the above chart we can see that Credit Appraisal is the core and the basic function of a bank before
providing loan to any person/company, etc. It is the most important aspect of the lending procedure and
therefore it is discussed in detail as below.


With a view to ensuring a healthy loan portfolio, PNB has taken various steps to bring its policies
and procedures in line with changing scenario which also aims at effective management and dispersal of
credit risks, strengthening of pre-sanction appraisal and post sanction monitoring systems. Further, bank
has been continuously endeavoring to strengthen the organizational set-up by opening specialized
branches to meet the credit requirements of specific type of borrowers, imparting intensive credit
management training to staff and deployment of trained staff at branches/offices having potential for credit

There are two distinct phases of credit appraisal:

A. Pre-transaction credit appraisal.

B. Post transaction supervision & follow up of loans.

Pre-sanction credit appraisal

Before granting any advance under their own delegated powers or while forwarding proposals for sanction
to a higher authority, managers must satisfy themselves or provide such of the following information as
may be necessary to take a prudent credit decision and give their own definite recommendations.

While considering the credit proposals, the guidelines to be followed are:

1. All loan facilities should be considered after obtaining loan application(s) from the borrower(s) and
compilation of confidential reports on him/ them and the guarantors. The borrowers should have
the desired background, experience/ expertise to run their business successfully.
2. Project for which the finance is granted should be technically feasible and economically/
commercially viable i.e. it should be able to generate enough surplus so as to service the debts
within a reasonable period of time.
3. Cost of the project and means of financing the same should be properly assessed and tied up. Both
under-financing and over financing can have an adverse impact on the successful implementation
of the project.
4. Borrowers should be financially sound, enjoy good market reputation and must have their stake in
the business i.e. they should posses adequate liquid resources to contribute to margin
5. Loan should be sanctioned by the competent sanctioning authority as per the delegated loaning
powers and should be disbursed only after execution of all the required documents.
6. Projects financed must be closely monitored during implementation stage to avoid time and cost
overruns and thereafter till the adjustments of the bank loan.

Bank extends loan facilities by way of fund- based facilities and/or non-fund based facilities. The fund
based facilities are usually allowed by way of term loans, cash credit, bills discounted/purchased, demand
loans, overdrafts, etc. Further, the bank also provides non-fund based facilities by way of issuance of foreign
letters of credit, issuance of guarantees, etc.

The appraisal methodology should keep pace with ever changing economic environment. The appraisal
system aims to determine the credit needs/requirements of the borrower taking into account the financial
resources of the client. The end objective of the appraisal system is to ensure that there is no under-
financing or over-financing.
B. Post sanction supervision & follow up of loans

Supervision and follow up of bank credi6t has assumed considerable significance particularly after
introduction of new norms of assets classification, provisioning and derecognition of interest income on
NPA’s affecting profitability. System of supervision and follow up can be defined as the systematic evaluation
of the performance of the borrowal account to ensure that it operates at viable level and if problems arise, to
suggest practical solutions. The goals and objectives of monitoring may be classified into fundamental and
supplementary goals. Fundamental goals help a bank to ensure safety of funds lent to an enterprise, while
supplementary goals are directed towards keeping abreast of problems arising out of changes in both the
internal and external environment for initiating timely corrective actions.

System of supervision and monitoring of credit as laid down by the bank needs to be meticulously
followed by the branches/ controlling offices which, interlaid, covers the following:

Conveying of sanction: after the loan is sanctioned, branch communicate the terms and conditions of
sanction to the borrower in a letter as per draft available, containing therein the details of the facilities
sanctioned and respective terms and conditions. He borrowers will convey his/their acceptance of the
terms and conditions as per the draft available in case of a company necessary resolution authorizing the
signing officials to give such a letter, besides execution of documents be obtained and kept on record.

Profile of borrowers: Branch should maintain profile of each borrower separately specifically mentioning
complete name, contact address, telephone no. , activity of borrowers, assets of borrowers, guarantors and
other obligants, details of primary and collateral securities as per the format available. The profile should
be updated on quarterly intervals, on an ongoing basis and preferably be updates as the first page in the
file of the borrower. The controlling authorities i.e. RM/SRM/ZM and other inspecting officers during their
visit to branches should that profile on borrowers is maintained an updated regularly.

Maintenance of loan documents file: In order to maintain safety of the loan document, the branch
should ensure proper paging of all the loan documents. The page no. should be legibly written on the paper
right side of each paper document and the files should be kept in orderly manner.

System of legal compliance certificate: The branch is required to submit legal compliance certificate to
respective controlling office for credit limit of Rs. 10 lakhs and above(fund-based & non-fund based) in
respect of fresh sanction/ enhancement to respective controlling office within 7 days from the end of the
month in which the facilities are disbursed. The certificate is also required to be submit in the case of
renewal of the credit limit of Rs. 10 lakhs and above provided there are changes in terms and conditions.

M/S ABC Pvt. Limited, a company incorporated on 27.112006 and promoted by Shri P is planning to set up
project for Re-cycling of Waste Oils as per guidelines laid down by Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) at

@13.50%p.a... Interest rate on working capital assistance for the new project has also been assumed @
13.50%p.a… The average DSCR has been worked out has 2.01 and BEP at optimum Capacity Utilization at
10. SENSITIVITY ANALYSIS- The project were subjected to sensitivity and the results are observed as under.

Impact on DSCR

Sensitive Factors
Base case 2.11
Raw material price increased by 5%.
Selling price decreases by 5%. 1.11

Impact on IRR (Post tax)

Sensitive factor IRR (Post tax)

Base case 22.58%
Raw material price increased by 5% 11.81%
Selling price decreased by 5 % 9.85%

The table shows that if the projections are subjected to sensitive analysis with adverse changes made in crucial
parameters like raw material cost and selling price by 5%, the Average DSCR & IRR of the company falls to unacceptable
levels. The project is more sensitive to adverse movements in the selling price as compared to that with respect to raw
material prices.

ABC is planning set up a project for Re-Cycling of Waste Oils as per guidelines laid down by Central Pollution Control
Board (CPCB) at Kalagarh, Orissa. The company has started implementing the project. In view of the available
infrastructure and proposed arrangement for the same project is considered technically feasible. However the
company has to make necessary arrangement to obtain all necessary approvals for setting up and run the unit.
Moreover the company has yet to tie the necessary linkage regarding raw material for the unit. The average DSCR of
the project has been computed as 2.01:1 making the project to be financially viable subject to sensitive analysis as
detailed above.

Current ratio = current assets/current liabilities

YEAR 2011 2012 2013 2014 2015 2016

Current Assets 202.13 262.52 340.92 432.23 539.53 619.29

This ratio is indicative of short term financial position of a business enterprise. It provides margin
as well as it measure of the business enterprise to pay-off the current liabilities as they mature and its capacity
to withstand sudden reverse by the strength of its liquidity position. As per RBI stipulation, the minimum
current ratio of a firm should not be less than 1.33:1 so that current assets will be reasonably higher than
current liabilities to take care of the firm’s short term liquidity. Current ratio represents margin of safety for

It is seen that there is a gradual increase in current ratio from 1.44:1 to 2.39:1 over the projected years. The
projected current liability is growing but there is growth in projected current assets at an increasing rate which
leads to increase in current ratio. This shows the improvement in time without facing difficulties.

There cannot be a rigid to a satisfactory debt-equity ratio, lower the ratio higher is the degree of protection
enjoyed by the creditors. Normally banks/ financial institutions do not accept the debt-equity ratio more than
2:1 barring certain exceptions.

The projected debt-equity ratio decreases from 0.85:1 in year 2011 to 0 in 2016 as a result of projected debt
becoming 0 in 2016. The decrease is a result of increase in tangible net worth and decrease in term loan
outstanding on account of repayment of loan. It shows sign of a good business concern that tries to bring down
debt-equity ratio through periodic payment of installments and interest ploughing back the generated profit.

This ratio gives the margin available after meeting the cost of manufacturing. It provides a yardstick to
measure the efficiency of production and margin on sale price i.e. the pricing structure.

There is an increase in this ratio from 3.94% to 7.67% over the years. It is due to increase in projected
sales and due to increase in projected operating profit. This increasing trend speaks of the good
competitive operational strength of the firm.
