ABSTRACT

The project undertaken is credit appraisal and renewal. The project


emphasis on understanding the procedure and process used by
Abhyudaya Co-operative Bank Ltd. to assess the credit worthiness of the
borrower.
The credit appraisal process is the scientific way of giving the
credit to corporate client by analyzing the credit worthiness of the
company through different parameters. The first step in credit appraisal
project is to understand the Indian Co-operative banking industry.
The credit appraisal for company starts with Understanding the
need of loan to the borrower i.e. for which purpose the loan is required.
After this next step is to analyse the financial statement of the company to
whom the loan is to be sanctioned. The main things which are taken into
consideration while analyzing the financial statement are type of
statement, nature of activity, accounting policy, qualities of assets and
liabilities , unit wise performance result of the company & director’s
report.
After analyzing the financial statement the second step is to analyse
the key financial ratios of the company such as:
Creditors Ratio, Debtors Ratio, Debt Equity Ratio, Debt-service coverage
ratio, liquidity ratio, turnover ratio, Stock Velocity Ratio etc.
The next step is to understand the methodology used to determine
the credit rating. Since the credit rating methodology differ from bank to
bank in term of the weight age given to the parameters but the parameter
used by the banks to assess credit worthiness are almost same to all
company.
The sensitivity analysis is used to check the company ability to pay
back the loan by changing the independent variables and consequently
monitoring the effect on dependent variables. The last step is to
understand the classifications of Non Performing Assets and the
provision to recovery of NPA. The research report contains the whole
procedure & process which is used by the bank to give credit.

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Once a project opportunity is conceived and it is considered after


the preliminary screening, a detailed feasibility study has to be
undertaken covering marketing, technical, and financial aspects of the
project. The study in the form of cases deal with calculations of MPBF
(Maximum Permissible Finance), along with going through the
borrower’s information, general information of the proposal, past record
of borrower and details of security mortgaged. Financial records of the
borrower audited, provisional and projected such as Profit and loss
account statements, Balance Sheet and Cash and Fund Flow Statements
needed to be considered. The ratios such as current Ratio, Debt Service
Coverage Ratio etc are also checked. The ultimate decision whether to
grant the credit to borrower for the application or not and how to go about
it , is undertaken after this study which discloses whether the borrower
has good past record and information provided are true and fair.

My project concerns with the Calculations of MPBF i.e. Credit


Appraisal and Renewal, in which I need to asses if the borrower should
be granted credit, and what should be the recommended loan amount.
This all is done after carefully evaluating the financials and securities
provided by the borrower.

Various financial ratios are calculated for the past and future data
provided by the borrower after checking the veracity of the same. The
various ratios, which are frequently calculated include:

• Current ratio:
[(Receivables + material and finished good inventory)/ (creditors
for goods and expenses)]
• Long term debt-equity ratio
[Long Term Debt/ Net worth]
• Interest coverage ratio
[(Profit Before Interest – Provision for Tax)]/(Interest payments
due for the year]
• Fixed assets coverage ratio
[Fixed Assets/ (Term loan and other long term debt obligations)]
• Debt-service coverage ratio
[{(Profit after tax + Interest on term loan + Depreciation} + Other
Credit Appraisal & Renewal
non-cash charges]/ [Interest on term loan + Principle
Repayment]

• Profit after tax/sales


• Debtors Velocity
[Average Receivables/Credit Sales* No. of days in a year.]
• Creditors Velocity
[Average Payables/Credit Purchase* No. of days in a year.]
• Stock Velocity
[Average Stocks/Cost of goods Sold* No. of days in a year.]

Two other important criterions are IRR and DSCR

Financial institutions calculate the Internal Rate of Return (IRR).


The Internal Rate of Return refers to the rate of return that the project is
expected to generate based on its projected cash flows accruing over its
expected lifespan. Institutions have a threshold IRR that the project needs
to surpass to assess its viability.

DSCR refers to the ability of the project to generate sufficient cash


flows to repay the debt taken to finance the project. This includes the
principal along with the interest component.

The above ratios are taken and matched with the standard, though a
certain amount of flexibility is exercised depending on the perception and
personal judgment of the appraising officer. A rating is assigned to the
project based on the scores of the different ratios. A cut-off rating
determines financing decision (whether the project would financed or
not). Above the rating, the projects maybe categorized into excellent,
good and average. Based on this and the project characteristics, the final
terms and conditions of financial assistance are decided upon like:

• Moratorium
• Repayment period
• Availability period
• Security (like first charge, personal guarantee etc.)
• Interest rate
Credit Appraisal & Renewal
All the expenses like service fee, processing fee, document fee and
other expenses like inspection of site, factory, etc. are charged to the
applicant and are a source of income for the lending institution.

INTRODUCTION

Credit Appraisal:-

borrower. The credit proposal is prepared to indicate the need based
requirement and the rationale for its recommendation. Bank has in place a
well-defined framework for approving credit limits of different segments.
Requests for credit facilities from the prospective borrowers shall be on
the prescribed format and the full-fledged proposal should be prepared for
submission to the appropriate sanctioning authority for approval. These
proposals analyze various risks associated with bank lending i.e. business
risks, financial risks, management risks, etc. and clarify the process by
which such risks will be managed on an on going basis.

Banking Sector: An overview

Banking Regulation Act of India, 1949 defines Banking as


“accepting, for the Purpose of lending or investment of deposits of money
from the public, repayable on demand or otherwise and withdraw able by
cheques, drafts, and order or otherwise.”

Most of activities a Bank performs are derived from the above


definition. In addition, Banks are allowed to perform certain activities
which are ancillary to this business of accepting deposits and lending. A
bank’s relationship with the public, therefore, revolves around accepting
deposits and lending money. Another activity which is assuming
increasing importance is transfer of money –both domestic and foreign –
from one place to another. This activity is generally known as “remittance
business” in banking parlance. The so called forex (foreign exchange)
business is largely a part of remittance albeit it involves buying and
selling of foreign currencies.

The law governing Banking Activities in India is called


“Negotiation Instruments Act 1881”. The banking activities can be
classified as:

 Accepting Deposits from public/others (Deposits)


 Lending money to public (Loans)
 Transferring money from one place to anther (Remittances)
 Acting as trustees
 Acting as intermediaries
 Keeping valuables in safe custody
 Collecting Business
 Government business

Evaluation of Urban Co-operative Banks

The term Urban Co-operative Bank (UCBs), though not formally defined,
refers to primary co-operative banks located in urban and semi –urban
areas. These banks, till 1996 were allowed to lend money only for non-
agricultural purposes. This distinction does not hold today. These banks
were traditionally centered on communities, localities work place group.
They essentially lent to small borrowers and businesses. Today, their
Scope of operations has widened considerably.

The origin of the urban co-operative banking movement in India can be


traced to the chose of nineteenth century when, inspired by the success of
the experiments related to the co-operative movement in Britain and the
co-operative credit movement in Germany such societies were set up in
India. Co-operative societies are based on the principles of co-operation,-
mutual help, democratic decision making and open membership. Co-
operative represented anew and alternative approach to organization as
against proprietary firm, partnership firm and joint stock companies
which represent the dominant form of commercial organization.

Main features of Co-operative Organization:

The main features of co-operative organization are:


 Voluntary Association
 Democratic Administration
 Self- help and Mutual Aid
 Common Welfare through Common Action
 Participation of Members on the basis of Equality
Credit Appraisal & Renewal

A dedicated group of social workers and labour movement activist,


imbued with the spirit of service to the cause of mill workers, other
industrial workers and economically weaker sections started the
Abhyudaya Co-op. Credit Society Ltd in 1964, with a small share capital
of Rs.5000/-. The area of Parel, Parel village, Kalachowki, Sewri and
their surroundings where at that time predominantly populated with low
income industrial labour and middle class. The promoters realized that
there was the need for providing this hard working, less educated,
economically weaker but honest section of the society with a dependable,
trustworthy and self institutional source for channelizing their savings
and meeting small credit needs. The credit society provided the answer.
The enthusiastic response from the people and the confidence reposed by
them in the credit society encouraged the promoters, in just a few months,
to get it converted in to and Urban Co-op. Bank. Thus, the Abhyudaya
Co-op. Bank Ltd. was bourn in June 1965 with the motto “Prosperity
through Co-operation”.

FORMS OF BANK FINANCE

A firm can draw funds from its bank within the maximum credit limit
sanctioned. It can draw fund in the following forms:

Overdraft:

Under the overdraft facility, the borrower is allowed to withdraw


funds in excess of the balance in his current account up to a certain
specified limit during a stipulated period. Though overdrawn amount is
repayable on demand, they generally continue for a long period by annual
renewals of the limits. It is a very flexible arrangement from the
borrower’s point of view since he can withdraw and repay funds
whenever h desires within the overall stipulations. Interest is charged on
daily balances- on the amount withdrawn-subject to some minimum
charges. The borrower operates the account through cheques.

Cash Credit:

It is the most popular method of bank finance for working capital


in India. Under this method a borrower is allowed to withdraw funds from
the bank up to the sanctioned credit limit. Borrower is not required to
borrow the entire sanctioned credit once, rather, he can draw periodically
to the extent of his requirements and repay by depositing surplus funds in
his cash credit account. There is no commitment charge; therefore,
interest is payable on the amount actually utilized by the borrower. Cash
credit limits are sanctioned against the security of current assets. Though
funds borrowed are repayable on demand, banks usually do not recall
such advances unless they are compelled by adverse circumstances. Cash
credit is the most flexible arrangement from borrower’s point of view. It
is more often than not is used for working capital.

Purchase of Discounting Bills:

Under the purchase or discounting of bills, a borrower can obtain


credit from bank against its bills. The bank purchases or discounts the
borrower’s bills. The provided under this agreement is covered within the
overall cash credit or overdraft limit. Before purchasing or discounting
Credit Appraisal & Renewal
the bills, the bank satisfies itself as to the creditworthiness of the drawer.
Though the term bills purchased implies that the bank becomes owner of

the bills, in practice, bank holds bills as security for the credit. When a
bill is discounted, the borrower is paid the discounted amount of the bill.

Letter of Credit:

Suppliers, particularly the foreign suppliers, insist that the buyer


should ensure that his bank will make the payment if he fails to honor its
obligation. This is ensured through a letter of credit arrangement. A Bank
opens a Letter of Credit in favor of a customer to facilitate his purchase
goods. If the customer does not pay to the supplier within the credit
period, the bank makes the payment under the L/C arrangements. This
arrangement passes the risk of the supplier to the bank. Bank charges the
customer for opening the L/C. The Bank extends such facility to the
financially sound customers. Unlike cash credit or overdraft facility, the
L/C arrangement is an indirect financing; the bank makes payment to the
suppliers on behalf of the customer only when he fails to meet the
obligation. There are two banks involved in L/C arrangements. The L/C
opener Bank on behalf of the applicant or purchaser and the advisory
bank on behalf of the beneficiary or supplier. The L/C opener Bank issues
L/C after taking required security. The beneficiary or supplier gives the
goods invoice & bill of exchange to the advisory bank. The advisory bank
sends the same to the Opener Bank for acceptance, the opener bank take
an acceptance from the applicant and sends back the same to the advisory
bank. Now the L/C opener Bank makes payment to the beneficiary or
supplier in case of purchaser default. The bank charges the customer for
opening the L/C.

Bank Guarantee:

A Bank Guarantee is a guarantee made by a bank on behalf of a


customer (usually an established corporate customer) should it fail to
deliver the payment, essentially making the bank a co-signer for one of its
customer's purchases. A bank guarantee is more risky for the merchant
and less risky for the bank. A letter from a bank guaranteeing that a
buyer's payment to a seller will be received on time and for the correct
amount. In the event that the buyer is unable to make payment on the
Credit Appraisal & Renewal
purchase, the bank will be required to cover the full or remaining amount
of the purchase. With a bank guarantee, a client can default and the bank
assumes the liability. Thus it can be said that Bank Guarantee is a
commitment made by a bank to a foreign buyer that the bank will pay an
exporter for goods shipped if the buyer defaults.

Housing Loan:

The Bank provides facility of housing loan to consumers for


purchase, construction, renovations or for repairs of the house.
The Bank as against the loan amount asks for security from the borrower,
the conditions for which are as follows:

• Primary: Mortgage of the house Property to be purchased /

Working Capital Loan/Term Loan or Mortgage loan for Trade &


Service Sector:

Banks are the main institutional sources of working capital finance


in India. After trade credit, bank credit is the most important source of
Credit Appraisal & Renewal
financing working capital requirements. A bank considers a firm’s sales
and production plans and the desirable levels of current assets in
determining its working capital requirements. The amount approved by
the bank for the firm’s working capital requirements is called credit limit.
Credit limit is the maximum funds which a firm can obtain from the
banking system.

In case of firms with seasonal businesses, banks may fix separate


limits for the peak level credit requirements indicating the periods during
which the separate limits will be utilized by the borrower. In practice,
banks do not lend 100% of the credit limit; they deduct margin money. A
margin requirement is based on the principle of conservatism and is
meant to ensure security. If the margin requirement is 30%, bank will
lend only up to 70% of the value of the asset. This implies that security of
bank’s lending should be maintained even if the asset’s value falls by
30%.

A borrower may sometimes require ad hoc or temporary


accommodation in excess of sanctioned credit limit to meet unforeseen

contingencies. Banks provide such accommodation through a demand


loan account or a separate non operable cash credit account. The
borrower is required to pay a higher rate of interest above the normal rate
of interest on such additional credit.

The purpose of such loan is to provide hassle free working capital


finance to the borrower. The nature of this loan can be cash credit,
overdraft or a term loan. The borrower should have a good track record
of 3 years.

The security in this case goes as follows: Primary Hypothecation of


stocks and book-debts Collateral Mortgage of Unencumbered residential
house/flat, commercial or industrial property with a clear marketable title
in the name and possession of the borrower/Proprietor/
Partner/s/Director/s either self occupied or vacant.

The Rate of interest is PLR+1% with monthly rests. The term loan
(against mortgage of immovable property) from a minimum Rs. 0.50 lacs
to maximum Rs. 50 lacs or 30 times net monthly income whichever is
lower. The security is the Mortgage of the unencumbered residential
house/flat, commercial or Industrial property with a clear marketable title
Credit Appraisal & Renewal
in the name and possession of borrower/proprietor or partner/s/Director/s
either self occupied or vacant with a security cover of 1.5 times the
amount of loan. The Rate of Interest is PLR+2.5% with a repayment
period of 60 months.
Credit Appraisal & Renewal

Factors to be taken into consideration while determining


requirements for working capital:

Production Policies:

A sugar factory which belongs to a seasonal industry would


obviously have its working capital need affected by the length of the
crushing season. The production schedule i.e. the plan for production, has
great influence on the level of inventories. In some cases raw material can
be procured only in a particular season and have to be stocked for the
production of the whole year. In many others, the production cycle is
limited to a part of the year and raw materials have to be accumulated
throughout the year. In all such cases the need for working capital will
vary according to the production plans. Similarly, the decision of the
management regarding automation, etc, also affects working capital
requirements. In a labor- intensive process, the requirements of working
capital will be higher. In the case of highly automatic plant, the
requirements of long-term funds would be greater.

Nature of the business:

The shorter the manufacturing process, the lower is the


requirements of working capital. This is because, in such a case,
inventories have to be maintained at a low level. Longer the
manufacturing process, higher will be the requirements of working
capital. This is the reason why highly capital-intensive industries require
large amount of working capital to run their sophisticated and long
production process. Similarly, a trading concern requires lower working
capital than a manufacturing concern.

Credit policy:

The credit policy of the company also determines the requirements


of working capital. A company, which allows liberal credit to its
customers, may have higher sales but consequently will have large
amount of funds tied up in sundry debtors. Similarly a company, which
has very efficient debt collection machinery and offers strict credit
terms, may require lesser amount of working capital than the one where
debt collection system is not so efficient or where the credit terms are
Credit Appraisal & Renewal
liberal. The credibility of a company in the market also has an effect on
the working capital requirements. Reputed and established concerns can

purchase raw material on credit and enjoy many other services also like
door delivery, after sales service etc. This would mean that they could
easily have large current liabilities; therefore the required working capital
may not be very high.

Inventory policy:

The inventory policy of a company also has an impact on the


working capital requirements since a large amount of funds is normally
locked up in inventories. An efficient firm may stock material for a
smaller period and may, therefore, require lesser amount of working
capital.

Abnormal factors:

Abnormal factors like strikes and lockouts also require additional


working capital. Recessionary conditions necessitate a higher amount of
stock of finished goods remaining in stock. Similarly, inflationary
conditions necessitate more funds for working capital to maintain same
amount of current assets.

Market conditions:

Working capital requirements are also affected by market


conditions like degree of competition. Large inventory is essential as
delivery has to be off the shelf or credit has to be extended on liberal
terms when market competition is fierce or market is not very strong is a
buyer’s market.

Conditions of supply:

If prompt and adequate supply of raw materials, spares, stores etc.


is available it is possible to manage with small investments in inventory
or work on the just in time (JIT) principle. However if the supply is
erratic, scant seasonal, channel zed through government agencies etc., it
is essential to keep large stocks increasing working capital requirements.
Credit Appraisal & Renewal
Business Cycle:

Business fluctuations lead to cyclical and seasonal changes in


production and sales and affect the working capital requirements.

Growth and expansion:

The growth in volume and growth in working capital go hand in


hand. However, the change may not be proportionate and the increased
need for working capital is felt right from the initial stages of growth.

Level of taxes:

The amount of taxes paid depends on taxation laws. These amount


usually have to be paid in advance. Thus need for working capital varies
with tax rates and advance tax provisions.

Dividend policy:

Payment of dividend utilizes cash while retaining profits acts as a


source of working capital. Thus working capital gets affected by dividend
policies.

Price level changes:

Inflationary trends in the economy necessitate more working


capital to maintain the same level of activity.

Operating efficiency:

Efficient and coordinated utilization of capital reduces the amount


required to be invested in working capital
Credit Appraisal & Renewal

Securities Required in bank finance

Banks generally do not provide working capital without adequate


security. The following are the modes of security which a bank may
require:

Hypothecation:

Under hypothecation, the borrower is provided with working


capital finance by the bank against the security of movable property,
generally inventories. The borrower does not transfer the property to the
bank; he remains in the possession of property made available as security
for the debt. Thus hypothecation is a charge against property for an
amount of debt where neither ownership nor possession is passed to his
creditor. Banks generally grant credit hypothecation only to first class
customers with highest integrity. They do not usually grant hypothecation
facility to new borrowers.

Pledge:

Under this arrangement, the borrower is required to transfer the


physical possession of the property for the payment of debt. In case of
mortgage, the possession of the property may remain with the borrower,
with the lender getting the full legal title. The transferor of interest
(borrower) is called mortgager, the transferee (bank) is called mortgagee,
and the instrument of transfer is called the mortgage deed.
The credit granted against immovable property has some difficulties.
They are not self liquidating. Also, there are difficulties in ascertaining
the title and assessing the value of the property. There is limited
marketability and therefore security may often b difficult to realize. Also,
without the court’s decree the property can not be sold. Usually, for
working capital finance, the mode of security is either hypothecation or
pledge. Mortgages may be taken as additional security.

Lien:

Lien means right of the lender to retain property belonging to the


borrower until he repays credit. It can be either a particular lien or general
lien. Particular lien is a right to retain property until the claim associated
Credit Appraisal & Renewal
with the property is fully paid. General lien, on the other hand, is
applicable till all dues of the lender are paid. Banks usually enjoy general
lien.
Credit Appraisal & Renewal

DOCUMENTATION FORMALITIES

Once the credit limits are sanctioned main documents are obtained from
the client concerned. The nature of documents varies depending upon the
type of facility sanctioned and terms of sanction. They may include one
or more of the following-

• Loan agreement conveying in terms and conditions of loan.


• CIBIL (Credit Information Bureau (India) Limited) report of the
borrower company.
• Valuation report of the property to be mortgaged if any.
• A comprehensive credit agreement.
• CR’s (Confidential Report) of the borrower from the banks.
• Agreement of hypothecation of book debts.
• Power of attorney to receive the business receivables.
• Pledge letters of agreement in respect of documents of title to
goods covering credit limits.
• Insurance / contingency insurance policy.
• Appropriate standard policy or specific policy.
• Corporate and personal guarantee.
• Documents conveying equitable mortgage on primary security i.e.
fixed assets pertaining to the project and on the additional security
(collateral)
• Personal guarantee of the borrower and guarantor (if any)
• Compliance of registration of charge formalities.
Credit Appraisal & Renewal
• Search report form an Advocate indicating a clear title for the last
fifteen years as per the land records; and Approved building plans
incase of constructed property.

This would involve submission of the relevant documents by enterprise.


The legal department in the financial institution would scrutinize these
documents for their validity and completeness.

Non Performing Asset

Non Performing Asset means an asset or account of borrower,


which has been classified by a bank or financial institution as sub-
standard, doubtful or loss asset, in accordance with the directions or
guidelines relating to asset classification issued by RBI.
With a view to moving towards international best practices and to
ensure greater transparency, it has been decided to adopt the '90 days
overdue' norm for identification of NPAs, from the year ending March
31, 2004. Accordingly, with effect form March 31, 2004.

A Non performing asset (NPA) shall be an advance where


i. Interest and /or installment of principal remain overdue for a period
of more than 90 days in respect of a Term Loan,
ii. The account remains 'out of order' for a period of more than 90
days, in respect of an Overdraft/ Cash Credit(OD/CC),
iii. The bill remains overdue for a period of more than 90 days in the
case of bills purchased and discounted,
iv. Interest and/ or installment of principal remains overdue for two
harvest seasons but for a period not exceeding two half years in the
case of an advance granted for agricultural purpose, and
v. Any amount to be received remains overdue for a period of more
than 90 days in respect of other accounts.

Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has issued guidelines on provisioning


requirement with respect to bank advances. They are classified mainly
into:

Standard Assets: Such an asset is not a non-performing asset. In other


words, it carries not more than normal risk attached to the business.

Sub-standard Assets: It is classified as non-performing asset for a period


not exceeding 12 months.
Credit Appraisal & Renewal
Doubtful Assets: Asset that has remained NPA for a period exceeding 12
months is a doubtful asset.

Loss Assets: Here loss is identified by the banks concerned or by internal


auditors or by external auditors or by Reserve Bank India (RBI)
inspection.

It should be noted that the above classification is only for the purpose of
computing the amount of provision that should be made with respect to
bank advances and certainly not for the purpose of presentation of
advances in the banks balance sheet.

After the implementation of Securitization Act, 2002 banks issue notice


to the defaulter to either pay back the dues to the bank or give the
ownership of the secured assets mentioned in the notice. However, there
is a potential threat to recovery if there is substantial attrition in the value
of security given by the borrower or if borrower has committed fraud
with the concerned bank. Under such a situation it will be prudent to
directly classify the advance as a doubtful or loss asset, as appropriate.

DRT:

The bank can file a suit against the clients in court to recover its
due. It is filed in court so that the dues can be recovered through the Debt
Recovery Tribunal. The DRT came into existence in 1993 for debts with
outstanding of Rs.10 lakhs and more.

The other courts will not have authority to hear cases falling under
this jurisdiction, once the case is referred to DRT. The DRT has the
powers to attach and sell, to arrest and detain in jail.

DEBT ASSET SWAP:

It is the takeover of unproductive / non core assets by mutual


agreement. Absence of legal problems in taking over is a precondition.
Minimum value of asset should be Rs.5 Crores.

ONE TIME SETTLEMENT (OTS):


Credit Appraisal & Renewal
One time settlement is one the resource for the bank to recover its
debts. The settlement amount is arrived at by the bank and borrower in
order to settle the loan account. The doubtful or loss account as on
31.03.2000, the settlement amount is minimum 100 % of O/s as on the
date it became NPA. Sub standard as on 31.03.2000, which later became
Doubtful/loss, the settlement amount is minimum 100% O/s on date it
became Doubtful/ Loss + interest at PLR from 01.04.2000 to date of

settlement. Amount is to be paid in lump sum. And if it is payable in


installments, the minimum no of installments are 12. The minimum
amount to be paid immediately is 25%, Interest at PLR from date of
settlement to date of payment.

CORPORATE DEBT RESTRUCTURING:

Corporate debt restructuring is a viable and transparent mechanism


for ailing but viable corporate outside the structure of BIFR/legal
proceedings. It is applicable for only sub standard assets. Only
manufacturing companies are covered under the scheme. In corporate
restructuring scheme only the accounts of Rs. 20 Crores and above are
covered. It is a three tier structure- CDR Forum, CDR Empowered
Group, and CDR cell CDR Forum frames policies and guidelines. CDR
Empowered Group makes sanctions, approvals, commitments, etc. CDR
cell scrutinizes, assesses, and monitors.

Features of the scheme are:


1. Revival plans is to be ready in 90 days
2. Lenders cannot exit from the agreement
3. Creditors with 20% or more exposure can approach the CDR
4. Restoration plan approved by 60% of value of creditors is binding
5. Amount of sacrifice is the amount of interest measured in P V terms,
which is provided fully or written off

Other Comments and observations:

f) The party has projected to achieve a sales target of Rs. 19.00 Lacs
over previous year achievement of Rs. 6.12 Lacs. The projected

sales target seems to be achievable owing to the fact that up to
31/10/2007 (7 months) the party has a sales turnover of Rs. 11.62
lacs through the account.
g) Stock Velocity reveals the part of sales always invested in stock
during the year or in other words it refers to the period of sales sans
obstacles out of the current stock in case the production halts due to
strike or other reason.
The stocking period of 175 days is on higher side hence its been
accepted at 90 days level.
h) Debtors Velocity reveals the duration within the debtors are
expected to be realized. The projected debtors’ period seems
reasonable hence accepted for assessment as projected.
i) Creditors Velocity reveals the duration within the creditors are
expected to be paid. Lesser the days better is the position of the
firm. The projected creditors velocity is at a lower level, keeping
the kind of stocks in trade into consideration, the velocity has been
accepted at 50 days level.

RECOMMENDATIONS AND SUGGESTIONS

After studying the credit appraisal process at Abhyudaya C-operative


Bank and observing the findings, I put forth some of my
recommendations which, I firmly believe, would enhance the overall
credit delivery process of the Bank and experience of corporate clients.
My suggestions are as follows:

Findings:

Currently, the processing of credit proposal is done on office 2003

The Suggestions:

The processing of credit proposal can be done by using upgraded


software’s like office 2007.

Findings:

The government and Reserve Bank of India have devised compromise


settlement schemes to help banks recover non-performing assets
especially for genuine borrowers. The scheme provides concessions and
interest waivers so that immediate settlement can take place.

The Suggestions:

There are special software available that enables the bank and the user in
respect of:
• Speedy preparation, evaluation and approval of settlement
proposals.
• Availability of reliable information and systems to monitor
and control the recovery process.

Thus, such software could be install to prepare and evaluate settlement


schemes. The benefits of such software can be summerised as follows:

 Realistic approach for evaluation of the proposal by


calculating interest using different interest rates and
methods.
Credit Appraisal & Renewal

 Saves time by enabling speedy preparation of settlement


proposals giving a total picture of the outstanding.

 Gives comprehensive information including details of


Borrowers, Credit Facilities, Present asset position and
scope for recoveries.

 Automates respective task in preparing the proposal, office


notes/memorandum and other correspondence.

 Extensive MIS reports facilitate monitoring and reporting


to Central office/ RBI and other regulatory authorities.

CONCLUSION

The study at Abhyudaya Co-operative Bank gave a vast learning


experience to me and has helped to enhance my knowledge. During the
study I learnt how the theoretical financial analysis aspects are used in
practice during the working capital finance assessment. I have realized
during my project that a credit analyst must own multi-disciplinary talents
like financial, technical as well as legal know-how.

The credit appraisal for working capital finance system has been devised
in a systematic way. There are clear guidelines on how the credit analyst
or lending officer has to analyze a loan proposal. It includes phase-wise
analysis which consists of 5 phases:

1. Financial statement analysis


2. Working capital and its assessment techniques
3. Credit risk assessment
4. Documentation
5. Loan administration

Abhyudaya Co-operative bank’s adoptions of the Projected Balance Sheet


method of assessment procedures are based on sound principles of
lending. This method of assessment has certain flexibility required to
avoid any rigid approach to fixing quantum of finance. It is superior and
more rational compared to the Turnover Method, Cash Budget Method of
assessment. It also facilitates the Bank to carry on follow up procedures.
The PBS method have been rationalized and simplified to facilitate
complete flexibility in decision-making.

To ensure asset quality, proper risk assessment right at the beginning, is


extremely important. That is why Credit Risk Assessment system is an
essential ingredient of the Credit Appraisal exercise. It considers
important parameters like profitability, repayment capacity, efficiency of
the unit, historical / industry comparisons etc…

The Credit Policy of the Bank should be reviewed periodically by taking


into account changes in money market, changes in credit policy
announced y Reserve Bank of India and happening of other events to
protect the interest of the bank and to maintain profitability.

Proper credit appraisal involving performance of the client, sureties and


industrial visits can help bank to reduce its NPA’s and hence to reduce its
credit risk.
