An element of risk is inherent in any type of loan because of the uncertainty of the repayment. the primary task of the bank before granting term loans is to assure itself that the anticipated income from the unit would provide the necessary amount for the repayment of the loan. the following differences between a term loan & the working capital credit afforded by the Bank are apparent: The purpose of the term loan is for acquisition of capital assets. namely Technical Feasibility . an industrial unit is a process comprising several steps. whether given as security or not.From the above definition. It may thus be observed that the scope & operation of the term loans are entirely different from those of the conventional working capital advances. its financial aspects. This will involve a detailed scrutiny of the scheme. 7. The repayment of term loan is not out of sale proceeds of the goods & commodities per se.To determine the suitability of the technology selected & the adequacy of the technical investigation & design. 15 PRAMOD.

To determine the accuracy of cost estimates. Financial Feasibility . Too many projects have become uneconomical because sufficient care has not been taken in the location of the project. One project was located near a river to facilitate easy transportation by barge but lower water level in certain seasons made essential transportation almost impossible. 7. a woolen scouring & spinning mill needed large quantities of good water but was located in a place which lacked ordinary supply of water & the limited water supply available also required efficient softening treatment. Inadequate transport facilities or lack of sufficient power or water for instance.1 Technical Feasibility The examination of this item consists of an assessment of the various requirement of the actual production process.Economic Feasibility . can adversely affect an otherwise sound industrial project. A smaller plant than the optimum size may result in increased production costs & may not be able to sell its products at competitive prices. e.E(PGDMB12/72) . a) The location of the project is highly relevant to its technical feasibility & hence special attention will have to be paid to this feature. & Managerial Competency – To ascertain that competent men are behind the project to ensure its successful implementation & efficient management after commencement of commercial production. b) Size of the plant – One of the most important considerations affecting the feasibility of a new industrial enterprise is the right size of the plant. costs. The accessibility to the various resources has meaning only with reference to location. It is in short a study of the availability.To ascertain the extent of profitability of the project & its sufficiency in relation to the repayment obligations pertaining to term assistance. 16 PRAMOD.

marketability of the products etc. The principle underlying the technological selection is that “a developing country cannot afford to be the first to adopt the new nor yet the last to cast the old aside”. It is equally important to avoid adopting equipment or processes which are absolute or likely to become outdated soon. d) Labor – The labor requirements of a project. Forecasting of demand is a complicated matter but one of the vital importance.2 Economic Feasibility An economic feasibility appraisal has reference to the earning capacity of the project. whether machinery proposed to be acquired by the unit under the scheme will be sufficient for all stages of production. Though labor in terms of unemployed persons is abundant in the country. a) A thorough market analysis is one of the most essential parts of project investigation. the extent of competition prevailing.

This involves getting answers to three questions. wherever necessary. Since earnings depend on the volume of sales. a) How big is the market? b) How much it is likely to grow? c) How much of it can the project capture? The first step in this direction is to consider the current situation. Care should be taken to see that there is no idle capacity in the existing industries.
