1.1 BACKGROUND OF STUDY
A manufacturing concern needs finance not only for acquisition of fixed assets but also for its day-to day operations. It has to obtain raw materials for processing, pay wage bills & other manufacturing expenses, store finished goods for marketing & grant credit to the customers. It may have to pass through the following stages to complete its operating cycleConversion of cash into raw materials – raw material procured on credit, cash may have to be paid after a certain period. ii. iii. iv. v. vi. Conversion of raw materials into stock in process Conversion of stock in process into finished goods. Conversion of finished goods into receivables/debtors or cash. Conversion of receivables/debtors into cash A non-manufacturing trading concern may not require raw material for their processing, but it also needs finance for storing goods & providing credit to its customers.

Similarly a concern engaged in providing services, it may not have to keep inventories but it may have to provide credit facility to its customers. Thus all enterprises engaged in manufacturing or trading or providing services require finance for their day-to-day operations, the amount required to finance day-to-day operation is called “working capital”

The assets & liabilities are created during the operating cycle are Page 2 of 47

called current assets& current liabilities.

There are two components of working capital

When entrepreneurs for financing working capital requirements approach the banks, the bank has to examine the viability of the project before agreeing to provide working capital for it. Financial institutions & bank while providing term loan finance to unit for acquisition of fixed assets does a detailed viability study. They have to ensure that the project will generate sufficient return on the resources invested in it.

The viability of a project depends on Technical feasibility, Financial Page 3 of 47

feasibility, Flash report, Credit analysis, sensitivity analysis etc.

Technical feasibility : This aspect involves a detailed assessment of the goods and the services needed for the project – land, building, raw material, transportation, technology etc. The important feature regarding technical feasibility relates to the type of technology to be used for the project. The project needs to be examined with particular reference to the following points regarding the technical feasibility. Land and Building Plant and Machinary Technical Competence Financial feasibility : The institution while advancing loan is quite

keen about the financial feasibility of the whole project. In finding out financial feasibility, the following facts should be taken into account: Cost of Project Means of Financing Cost of Production and Profitability Cash Flow Estimates Proforma Balance Sheets.

Flash report

: The banks prepares a flash report. The flash report is

to gauge whether it is feasible to provide the cash credit to the applicant. It determine the amount of money that the bank will earn by providing the cash credit

Credit analysis :

It involves investigation of the capacity of the

applicant to borrow and his willingness to repay the debt in time according to the agreement. To analyse the creditworthiness of the applicant there are five „C‟ s of credit. Character (Good Citizen) Capacity (Cash Flow) Capital (Wealth)

Sensitivity analysis takes care of estimation errors by using a number of possible outcomes in evaluating a project. It has to be ensured that the unit will have regular supply of rawmaterial to facilitate uninterrupted production. which depends on the nature of the activities of an enterprise & the duration of its operating cycle. After assessing the total requirement of working capital. The unit should be able to maintainadequate stock offinished goods for smooth sales operation. the expected cash flow.Collateral (Security) Conditions (Economic. the discount rate and the project life are to estimation errors. Sensitivity analysis provides different cash flows estimates under three assumptions The worst (most pessimistic) The expected (the most likely) and The best (most optimistic) it is necessary to make a proper assessment of total requirement of the working capital. a part of working capital requirement should be financed for the long term & partly by determining MAXIMUM PERMISSABLE BANK Page 5 of 47 . The analysis on these lines is important as the future is always uncertain and there will always be estimation errors. The method adopted under sensitivity analysis is to evaluate a project using a number of estimated cash flows to provide to the decision maker an insight into the variability of the outcomes. namely. It provides information as to how sensitive the estimated project parameters. especially downside vulnerability) Sensitivity analysis :One measure which expresses risk in more precise terms is sensitivity analysis.

Inadequate levels of working capital may result in under-utilization of capacity and serious financial difficulties. The committee has representatives from a few banks and it generally once in a quarter. It also consults the representative from industry and trade. Proper assessment of working capital requirement may be done as under- If the bank credit is to be linked with production requirements. The „study group to frame guidelines to follow-up of bank credit‟ (Tandon Study Group) appointed by Reserve Bank of India had suggested the norms for inventory and receivables regarding:Major industries on the basis of company finance studies made by Reserve Bank process periods in the different industries. It keeps a watch on the various issues relating to working capital Page 17 of 47 . it is necessary to assess the requirements on the basis of certain norms. Similarly excessive levels may lead to unproductive use of credit and unnecessary interest Burdon on the unit. Proper assessment of funds required for working capital is essential not only in the interest of the concerned unit but also in the national interest to use the scare credit according to production requirements. The norms suggested by Tandon Study Group are being reviewed from time to time by the Committee of Direction constituted by the Reserve Bank to keep a constant view on working capital requirements. discussions with the industry experts and feed-back received on the interim report.1 ASSESSMENT OF WORKING CAPITAL A unit needs working capital funds mainly to carry current assets required for its operations.2.

Banks may also consider suitable internal guidelines for accepting the projections made by the borrowers regarding sundry creditors as sundry creditors are taken as a source of financing current assets (inventories.).requirements and gives various suggestions to suit the changing requirements of the industry and trade. etc. Banks make their own assessment of credit requirements of borrowers based on a total study of borrowers‟ business operations and they can also decide the levels of holding each item of inventory as also of receivables which in their view would represent a reasonable built up of current assets for being supported by banks‟ finance. it is necessary to project them correctly while calculating need of bank finance for working capital requirements.

It may be observed from the above that borrower‟s contribution from long term funds would be 25 per cent of the working capital gap under the first method of lending . Borrower should provide for a minimum of 25 per cent of total current assets out of long-term funds. i.

The salient features of new system are:    For borrowers with requirements of uptoRs. creditlimit can be offered upto 20% of the projected gross sales of the borrower. 25 lakhs. the cash budget systemmay be used to identify the working capital needs. The disintegration of consortium system. RBI permits banks to follow Tandon/Chore Committee guidelines and retain MPBF concept with necessary modifications.  For large borrowers not selling in the above categories. banks may themselves decide to form consortium so that the risks are spread. Page 27 of 47 . Now it is not essential to have consortium arrangements. 2. 50 crore. 25 lakhs. credit limits will be computed after detailed discussions with borrower. without going into detailedevaluation.2. but uptoRs.This has given banks greater freedom and responsibility for assessing credit needs andcredit worthiness. However. Earlier RBI had prescribed consortium arrangements for financing working capital beyond Rs. working capital financing was constrained with detailed regulations on how much credit the banks could give to their customers. 5 crore.5 RECENT RBI GUIDELINES WORKING CAPITAL FINANCE: REGARDING In the past. the entry of term lending institutions into working capital finance and the emergence of money market borrowing options gives the best possible deal. The notion of Maximum Permissible Bank Finance (MPBF) has been abolished byRBI and a new system was proposed by the INDIAN BANKINGASSOCIATION (IBA). The recent changes made by RBI in the guidelines for bank credit for working capital finance are discussed below: 1. For borrowers with requirements above Rs.

Other aspects of lending discipline. which would make it easier for smaller borrowers to comply with these guidelines. Page 28 of 47 . 4. under which the banks would decide the levels of holding of inventory and receivables. would continue through with certain modifications. RBI had also issued lending norms for working capital. RBI has also suggested that the units engaged in export activities need not bring in any contribution from their long term sources for financing that portion of current assets as is represented by export receivables. submission and use of data furnished under quarterly information system etc. viz maintenance of minimum current ratio.
