NBFC fears banks change their lending stance

After the recent RBI intervention on NBFC’s funding approach, the financial regulator has categorically stated that NBFC must put a stop to gold financing. The recent change in the RBI’s approach has created panic among leading NBFC institutions.


The first step by the RBI has been to put a curb on IILF gold financing. The second step by the RBI has resulted in more curbs to put a stop to securities financing with immediate effect. Both restrictions have left NBFCs in the lurch.


The RBI move to curb high-margin financing has led to the belief that banks may no longer be smooth on NBFC lending. There’s now a certain sense of fear lurking among NBFCs. One reason why the RBI decided to take such a move is probably due to the rise in gold financing.


According to Financial Express, bank loans against gold jewelry soared to 206% at the end of the third quarter of the current fiscal year. Due to the vertical rise in loans against gold jewelry, the RBI may have taken such extreme measures.
