Reserve Bank
 Every Bank is required to set up its own policies
for providing monetary assistance to the SME

 Banks should start taking important steps for
rationalizing the cost of loans granted to the SME
sector. They should adopt a transparent rating system

 All banks including regional and rural banks are
required to take up concrete steps for providing
credit facilities to an average of at least 5 MSME's

 Reserve Bank has issued a notification to
all banks for detailing out their
procedures of disposition of loan
applications of MSME's

 Reserve Bank has made special arrangements
in institution for analyzing credit
requirements of such units

Common Guidelines
Disposal of Applications


Composite loan

Specialized SSI/SME branches

Priority sectors like agriculture, education
health and also MSME, get 40% of a year’s
total bank lending – agriculture being 18%

MSMEs employ 42 million people and contribute
9% of country’s GDP and 40% of exports

If 12% proposal, MSMEs could have some relief -
NCEUS has suggested a breakup of 5% for
small enterprises, 3% for medium enterprises
and the rest for micro firms

The ministry concerned also recommended a 15%
target for lending to MSMEs

 Thesetalks between RBI, the finance minister and the
MSME ministry remained uncertain.

 Treating MSMEs at par with the farm sector, the
commission has also recommended bringing down of the
interest rates on loans to 7% from more than 13% at

 Under Basel II norms, the reserve, which banks keep need
to be high in case they lend to unrated organizations

 The RBI should revise the definition of NPAs, to permit
any defaults up to 180-270 days by way of overdue
payments should not be treated as NPAs

 The reliance on outside rating agencies is not
sufficient, internal rating of the borrower needs to
be undertaken

 The present system of credit rating needs to be revised
in order to meet the interests of banks, borrowers and

 Salient Features
 Benefits to SMEs

 Benefits to Banks

 Industry perception

Basel II
 Purpose of Basel II Accords

 Credit Rating is Compulsory for MSME

 Reduction of Capital flows to MSME

 Credit Rating Alone is Not Sufficient for Safety

 Basel II is Unfair to MSME Sector

 Ratings of Banks is also Important

 More Experience is Required to Become Successful

Recent issues
 MSMEs should be provided with enhanced working
capital support from the banks, by way of
enhancement of cash credit limits and overdraft
facilities, by atleast 15 percent, in each

 Consider higher working capital ratios with reduced
margins from the industry

 RBI should revise the definition of NPAs for MSME

Government could urgently come out with
possibility to offer differential rate of
interest for MSMEs

Banks could be encouraged to provide
working capital term loans for a period
of 12-18 months to enable the Industry to
go through this transition period
