The Reserve Bank of India (RBI), as the central bank of the country, closely monitors developments in the whole financial sector.

The banking sector is dominated by Scheduled Commercial Banks (SBCs). As at end-March 2002, there were 296 Commercial banks operating in India. This included 27 Public Sector Banks (PSBs), 31 Private, 42 Foreign and 196 Regional Rural Banks. Also, there were 67 scheduled co-operative banks consisting of 51 scheduled urban co-operative banks and 16 scheduled state co-operative banks.

Scheduled commercial banks touched, on the deposit front, a growth of 14% as against 18% registered in the previous year. And on advances, the growth was 14.5% against 17.3% of the earlier year.

State Bank of India is still the largest bank in India with the market share of 20% ICICI and its two subsidiaries merged with ICICI Bank, leading creating the second largest bank in India with a balance sheet size of Rs. 1040bn.

Higher provisioning norms, tighter asset classification norms, dispensing with the concept of ‘past due’ for recognition of NPAs, lowering of ceiling on exposure to a single borrower and group exposure etc., are among the measures in order to improve the banking sector.

A minimum stipulated Capital Adequacy Ratio (CAR) was introduced to strengthen the ability of banks to absorb losses and the ratio has subsequently been raised from 8% to 9%. It is proposed to hike the CAR to 12% by 2004 based on the Basle Committee recommendations.

Retail Banking is the new mantra in the banking sector. The home loans alone account for nearly two-third of the total retail portfolio of the bank. According to one estimate, the retail segment is expected to grow at 30-40% in the coming years.

Net banking, phone banking, mobile banking, ATMs and bill payments are the new buzz words that banks are using to lure customers.

With a view to provide an institutional mechanism for sharing of information on borrowers / potential borrowers by banks and Financial Institutions, the Credit Information Bureau (India) Ltd. (CIBIL) was set up in August 2000. The Bureau provides a framework for collecting, processing and sharing credit information on borrowers of credit institutions. SBI and HDFC are the promoters of the CIBIL. The RBI is now planning to transfer of its stakes in the SBI, NHB and National bank for Agricultural and Rural Development to the private players. Also, the Government has sought to lower its holding in PSBs to a minimum of 33% of total capital by allowing them to raise capital from the market.

Banks are free to acquire shares, convertible debentures of corporate and units of equity-oriented mutual funds, subject to a ceiling of 5% of the total outstanding advances (including commercial paper) as on March 31 of the previous year.

The finance ministry spelt out structure of the government-sponsored ARC called the Asset Reconstruction Company (India) Limited (ARCIL), this pilot project of the ministry would pave way for smoother functioning of the credit market in the country. The government will hold 49% stake and private players will hold the rest 51%- the majority being held by ICICI Bank (24.5%).

The first phase of financial reforms resulted in the nationalization of 14 major banks in 1969 and resulted in a shift from Class banking to Mass banking. This in turn resulted in a significant growth in the geographical coverage of banks. Every bank has to earmark a minimum percentage of their loan portfolio to sectors identified as “priority sectors”. The manufacturing sector also grew during the 1970s in protected environs and the banking sector was a critical source. The next wave of reforms saw the nationalization of 6 more commercial banks in 1980. Since then the number scheduled commercial banks increased four-fold and the number of banks branches increased eight-fold.

After the second phase of financial sector reforms and liberalization of the sector in the early nineties, the Public Sector Banks (PSB) s found it extremely difficult to complete with the new private sector banks and the foreign banks. The new private sector banks first made their appearance after the guidelines permitting them were issued in January 1993. Eight new private sector banks are presently in operation. These banks due to their late start have access to state-ofthe-art technology, which in turn helps them to save on manpower costs and provide better services.

During the year 2000, the State Bank of India (SBI) and its 7 associates accounted for a 25% share in deposits and 28.1% share in credit. The 20 nationalized banks accounted for 53.5% of the deposits and 47.5% of credit during the same period. The share of foreign banks ( numbering 42 ), regional rural banks and other scheduled commercial banks accounted for 5.7%, 3.9% and 12.2% respectively in deposits and 8.41%, 3.14% and 12.85% respectively in credit during the year 2000.

Factors like age. however if proper credit evaluation techniques and monitoring are implemented then naturally the loan loss probability / problems will be minimized. There is no guarantee to ensure a loan does not run into problems. It is the process of appraising the credit worthiness of a loan applicant. Credit risk is a risk related to non repayment of the credit obtained by the customer of a bank.

Money can be repaid in one lump sum or in several regular payments until the amount you borrowed and the finance charges are paid in full. and furniture are often purchased this way. A credit is a legal contract where one party receives resource or wealth from another party and promises to repay him on a future date along with interest. also known as a lender. We use credit to buy things with an agreement to repay the loans over a period of time. and agree to pay the balance with a specified number of equal payments called Page 21 . The borrower takes the goods home in exchange for a promise to pay later. Other credit plans include personal loans. You usually sign a contract. vehicle loans. By understanding how each works. Service credit is monthly payments for utilities such as telephone. and instead arranges either to repay or return those resources (or material(s) of equal value) at a later date.

Definition Working capital is defined as the funds required to carry the required levels of current assets to enable the unit to carry on its operations at the expected levels uninterruptedly.

1. A term loan is granted for a fixed term of not less than 3 years intended normally for

financing fixed assets acquired with a repayment schedule normally not exceeding 8 years.
2. A term loan is a loan granted for the purpose of capital assets, such as purchase of land,

construction of, buildings, purchase of machinery, modernization, renovation or

Page 27

rationalization of plant, & repayable from out of the future earning of the enterprise, in installments, as per a prearranged schedule. From the above definition, 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.

• •

The term loan is an advance not repayable on demand but only in installments ranging over a period of years. The repayment of term loan is not out of sale proceeds of the goods & commodities per se, whether given as security or not. The repayment should come out of the future cash accruals from the activity of the unit. The security is not the readily saleable goods & commodities but the fixed assets of the units.

3. It may thus be observed that the scope & operation of the term loans are entirely different from those of the conventional working capital advances. The Bank’s commitment is for a long period & the risk involved is greater. An element of risk is inherent in any type of loan because of the uncertainty of the repayment. Longer the duration of the credit, greater is the attendant uncertainty of repayment & consequently the risk involved also becomes greater. 4. However, it may be observed that term loans are not so lacking in liquidity as they appear to be. These loans are subject to a definite repayment programme unlike short term loans for working capital (especially the cash credits) which are being renewed year after year. Term loans would be repaid in a regular way from the anticipated income of the industry/ trade.

5. These distinctive characteristics of term loans distinguish them from the short term credit granted by the banks & it becomes necessary therefore, to adopt a different approach in examining the applications of borrowers for such credit & for appraising such proposals. 6. The repayment of a term loan depends on the future income of the borrowing unit. Hence, 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. This will involve a detailed scrutiny of the scheme, its financial aspects, economic aspects, technical aspects, a projection of future trends of outputs & sales & estimates of cost, returns, flow of funds & profits.

7. Appraisal of Term Loans Appraisal of term loan for, say, an industrial unit is a process comprising several steps. There are four broad aspects of appraisal, namely •

Technical Feasibility - To determine the suitability of the technology selected & the adequacy of the technical investigation & design; Economic Feasibility - To ascertain the extent of profitability of the project & its sufficiency in relation to the repayment obligations pertaining to term assistance; Financial Feasibility - To determine the accuracy of cost estimates, suitability of the envisaged pattern of financing & general soundness of the capital structure; & Managerial Competency – To ascertain that competent men are behind the project to ensure its successful implementation & efficient management after commencement of commercial production.

7.1 Technical Feasibility The examination of this item consists of an assessment of the various requirement of the actual production process. It is in short a study of the availability, costs, quality & accessibility of all the goods & services needed.

a) The location of the project is highly relevant to its technical feasibility & hence

special attention will have to be paid to this feature. Projects whose technical requirements could have been taken care of in one location sometimes fail because they are established in another place where conditions are less favorable. 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. Too many projects have become uneconomical because sufficient care has not been taken in the location of the project, e.g. 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. The accessibility to the various resources has meaning only with reference to location. Inadequate transport facilities or lack of sufficient power or water for instance, can adversely affect an otherwise sound industrial project.

It is equally important to avoid adopting equipment or processes which are absolute or likely to become outdated soon.. The size of the plant will be such that it will give an economic product which will be competitive when compared to the alternative product available in the market.. marketability of the products etc.CREDIT APPRAISAL IN BANKING SECTOR 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. should be obtained with specific comments on the feasibility of scheme. Since earnings depend on the volume of sales. d) Labour – The labour requirements of a 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. there is shortage of trained personnel. whether machinery proposed to be acquired by the unit under the scheme will be sufficient for all stages of production. This involves getting answers to three questions. it is necessary to determine how much output or the additional production from an established unit the market is likely to absorb at given prices. c) Type of technology – An important feature of the feasibility relates to the type of technology to be adopted for a project. A new technology will have to be fully examined & tired before it is adopted. The quality of labour required & the training facilities made available to the unit will have to be taken into account e) Technical Report – A technical report using the Bank’s Consultancy Cell. the extent of competition prevailing. etc. a) A thorough market analysis is one of the most essential parts of project investigation. a) How big is the market? Page 30 . Though labour in terms of unemployed persons is abundant in the country. wherever necessary. 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”. need to be assessed with special care.2 Economic Feasibility An economic feasibility appraisal has reference to the earning capacity of the project. its profitability. 7. external consultants.

Break-even point: Page 31 . technological advances could bring substitutes into market while changes in tastes & consumer preference might cause sizable shifts in demand. parts for machines.g. paper for printing. start-up time etc.g. Care should be taken to see that there is no idle capacity in the existing industries. It is complicated because a variety of factors affect the demand for product e. taking account of the total output of the product concerned & the existing demand for it with a view to establishing whether there is unsatisfied demand for the product.CREDIT APPRAISAL IN BANKING SECTOR 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. jute bags. ii) Future – possible future changes in the volume & patterns of supply & demand will have to be estimated in order to assess the long term prospects of the industry. The market analysis in this case should cover the market for the ultimate product.3 Financial Feasibility The basis data required for the financial feasibility appraisal can be broadly grouped under the following heads i) Cost of the project including working capital ii) Cost of production & estimates of profitability iii) Cash flow estimates & sources of finance. 7. The profitability estimates will also give the estimate of the Debt Service Coverage which is the most important single factor in all the term credit analysis. iii) Intermediate product – The demand for “Intermediate product” will depend upon the demand & supply of the ultimate product (e. The estimate of profitability & the breakeven point will enable the banker to draw up the repayment programme. The cash flow estimates will help to decide the disbursal of the term loan. Forecasting of demand is a complicated matter but one of the vital importance. A study of the projected balance sheet of the concern is essential as it is necessary for the appraisal of a term loan to ensure that the implementation of the proposed scheme. tyres for automobiles).

Page 32 . The cash accruals for this purpose should comprise net profit after taxes with interest. in that it serves as a measure of the repayment capacity of the project/ unit & is. depreciation provision & other non cash expenses added back to it. therefore. The repayment programme should be so stipulated that the ratio is comfortable. this point of no profit/ no loss is known as the break-even point. an appraisal of management is the touchstone of term credit analysis. Break-even point is expressed as a percentage of full capacity. In high cost schemes. The integrity & credit worthiness of the personnel in charge of the management of the industry as well as their experience in management of industrial concerns should be examined. Debt Service = Cash accruals Coverage Ratio Maturing annual obligations This ratio is valuable. on the relative strength of its management. the success of the project may be put to test. Hence. Debt/ Service Coverage: The debt service coverage ratio serves as a guide to determining the period of repayment of a loan. This is calculated by dividing cash accruals in a year by amount of annual obligations towards term debt. The ratio may vary from industry to industry but one has to view it with circumspection when it is lower than the benchmark of 1. the capacity of an enterprise to forge ahead of its competitors depends to a large extent. If there is a change in the administration & managerial set up.CREDIT APPRAISAL IN BANKING SECTOR In a manufacturing unit.

Here arises the need of Letter of Credit (LCs). Bankers and all concerned deal only in documents & not in goods. The seller desires to have an assurance for payment by the purchaser. it is therefore necessary that the evidence of movement of goods is present.CREDIT APPRAISAL IN BANKING SECTOR NON-FUND BASED:LETTER OF CREDIT Introduction The expectation of the seller of any goods or services is that he should get the payment immediately on delivery of the same. At the same time the purchaser desires that the amount should be paid only when the goods are actually received. The objective of LC is to provide a means of payment to the seller & the delivery of goods & services to the buyer at the same time. provided that the terms & conditions of the credit are complied with. If documents are in order issuing bank will pay irrespective of whether the goods are of expected quality or not. Banks are also not responsible for the genuineness of the documents & quantity/quality of goods. Clean bills which do not have document of title to goods are not normally established by banks. This may not materialize if the seller & the buyer are at different places (either within the same country or in different countries). or authorizes another bank to effect such payment. Parties to the LC Page 33 . i. is to make a payment to or to the order of a third party (the beneficiary). Basic Principle: The basic principle behind an LC is to facilitate orderly movement of trade. or authorizes another bank to negotiate against stipulated document(s). the bank has to advice him to convert all his requirements in the form of documents to ensure quantity & quality of goods. or to accept & pay such bills of exchanges (drafts). or is to accept & pay bills of exchange (drafts drawn by the beneficiary). Definition A Letter of Credit (LC) is an arrangement whereby a bank (the issuing bank) acting at the request & on the instructions of the customer (the applicant) or on its own behalf. Hence documentary LCs is those which contains documents of title to goods as part of the LC documents. iii. ii. If importer is your borrower.

Irrevocable LCs cannot be revoked/ cancelled/ amended without the prior concern of all the parties to the LC. Reimbursing bank is used in an LC transaction by an opening bank when the bank does not have a direct correspondent/branch through whom the negotiating bank can be reimbursed. Here. the opening bank will direct the reimbursing bank to reimburse the negotiating bank with the payment made to the beneficiary. Types of Letter of Credit:a) Revocable & Irrevocable: As the name suggests. c) Sight/ Usance LCs: Page 34 . A bank will confirm an LC for his beneficiary if opening bank requests this as part of LC terms. revocable LCs are those that can be revoked by the issuing bank & hence are not in commercial use. the LC may be transferred to the second beneficiary & if provided in the LC it can be transferred even more than once. In the case of transferable LC. b) Confirmed LC: The seller may ask for the confirmation of the LC by a bank in his own country if he is not satisfied about the issuing bank’s credentials.CREDIT APPRAISAL IN BANKING SECTOR 1) Applicant – The buyer who applies for opening LC 2) Beneficiary – The seller who supplies goods 3) Issuing Bank – The Bank which opens the LC 4) Advising Bank – The Bank which advises the LC after confirming authenticity 5) Negotiating Bank – The Bank which negotiates the documents 6) Confirming Bank – The Bank which adds its confirmation to the LC 7) Reimbursing Bank – The Bank which reimburses the LC amount to negotiating bank 8) Second beneficiary – The additional beneficiary in case of transferable LCs Confirming bank may not be there in a transaction unless the beneficiary demand confirmation by his own bankers & such a request is made part of LC terms.

If A receives an LC for USD 100000 for shipment of marine products & he approaches the Bank for opening LCs in favour of his suppliers of marine products within the original value & in keeping with the terms of the original LC these new LCs are opened against the backing of the original LC. Sight LCs have to be paid by the drawee (buyer) immediately whereas he gets credit as per LC terms under Usance LCs. As per UCPDC stipulated in the LC. However. The seller gives the receipt & an undertaking to present the documents before the LC expires. who exports marine products by buying them from a number of suppliers. it may be noted that this arrangement is not under the provisions of UCPDC though the individual LCs are governed by it. Page 35 .CREDIT APPRAISAL IN BANKING SECTOR In case of the sight LCs beneficiary gets immediate payment upon presentation of the documents while in the case of usance. g) Back to back LCs: When the bank opens new LCs against the backing of an LC received by a beneficiary having the first LC as security for the new LCs opened. f) Transferable LCs: Transferable LC are transferable in whole or in part to one or more beneficiaries depending on the terms of LC. Advance amount would be adjusted from the proceeds of the export documents. For example let us assume a customer A. Number of such utilization & the period of time by which this should take place are stipulated in the LC. the issuing bank undertakes to restore the credit to the original amount after it has been utilized. d) LC with advance payment to the seller: The LC which authorizes the advising bank to advance a part of LC amount to the seller to meet pre-shipment expenses is known as Red Clause Letter of Credit. The goods are stored in the name of the issuing bank. the transaction is referred to as Back to Back. This is the back to back transaction. On receipt of bill payment advise the LC amount gets reinstated. When the Red Clause LC provides for the cost of shortage facilities at the port of shipment in addition to the pre-shipment advance to the beneficiary it is called Green Clause LC. the risk is assumed by the buyer. e) Revolving LC: Under this.

CREDIT APPRAISAL IN BANKING SECTOR The post-sanction credit process can be broadly classified into three stages viz. The various arrangements under borrowings from more than one bank will differ on account of terms & conditions. supervision and monitoring. Besides this. The advantages to the bank in a multiple banking arrangement/ consortium arrangement are that the exposure to an individual customer is limited & risk is proportionate. TYPES OF LENDING ARRANEMENTS INTRODUCTION Business entities can have various types of borrowing arrangements. units would prefer to have banking arrangements with more than one bank on account of the large financial requirement or the resource constraint of his own banker or due to varying terms & conditions offered by different banks or for sheer administrative convenience. method of appraisal. coordination. follow-up. B. They are • • • • One Borrower – One Bank One Borrower – Several Banks (with consortium arrangement) One Borrower – Several Banks (without consortium arrangements – Multiple Banking One Borrower – Several Banks (Loan Syndication) A.. which together facilitate efficient and effective credit management and maintaining high level of standard assets.

ONE BANK The most familiar amongst the above for smaller loans is the One Borrower-One Bank arrangement where the borrower confines all his financial dealings with only one bank. The bank is also able to spread its portfolio. Sometimes. The objectives of the three stages of post sanction process are detailed below. consortium arrangement enables participating banks to save man power & resources through common appraisal & inspection & sharing credit information. documentation & supervision & control.

CREDIT SYNDICATION Page 86 . when units were not doing well. another bank was interested in continuing the facility on account of group considerations. The bank taking the highest share of the credit will usually be the leader of consortium. several banks pool banking resourses & expertise in credit management together & finance a single borrower with a common appraisal. Consortium arrangement occasioned delays in credit decisions & the borrower has found his way around this difficulty by the multiple banking arrangement. There is no ceiling on the number of banks in a consortium. Points to be noted in case of multiple banking arrangements • • • Though no formal arrangement exists among the financing banks. Additionally. consensus was rarely prevalent among the consortium members. The borrower enjoys the advantage similar to single window availing of credit facalities from several banks. it is preferable to have informal exchange of information to ensure financial discipline Charges on the security given to the bank should be created with utmost care to guard against dilution in our security offered & to avoid double financing Certificates on the outstandings with the other banks should be obtained on the periodical basis & also verified from the Balance sheet of the unit to avoid excess financing D.CREDIT APPRAISAL IN BANKING SECTOR When one borrower avails loans from several banks under an arrangement among all the lending bankers. common documentation & joint supervision & follow up. MULTIPLE BANKING ARRANGEMENT Multiple Banking Arrangement is one where the rules of consortium do not apply & no inter se agreement among banks exists. C. this leads to a consortium lending arrangements. The borrower avails credit facility from various banks providing separate securities on different terms & conditions. The arrangement continues until any one of the bank moves out of the consortium. There is no such arrangement called ‘Multiple Banking Arrangement’ & the term is used only to donote the existence of banking arrangement with more than one bank. If one bank wanted to call up the advance & protect the security. In consortium lending. Multiple Banking Arrangement has come to stay as it has some advantages for the borrower & the banks have the freedom to price their credit products & non-fund based facility according to their commercial judgment.
