The COVID-19 pandemic has been significantly severe, to say the least, and every institution across sectors has been impacted by this. More particularly to the financial services industry, every government and central bank across the globe have been taking measures to contain the effects of the pandemic but the results till now have not been very encouraging. The duration of the pandemic remains to be seen and it is unlikely that there would be any major growth during the current financial year i.e. FY 2020-21.
According to ICRA, a rating agency, the NBFC industry is likely to face asset quality pressure in the short term. However, the majority of the NBFC industry will withstand any stress as their collection capacity is improving. Moreover, their balance sheets mention that they are maintaining sufficient liquidity for tackling emergencies.
RBI has announced various measures, as a part of the response to the economic challenge faced by the NBFC industry, to aid the liquidity crisis in the system and to make NBFC work easier. NBFC's role in the loan brokerage business is growing. The default by a large NBFC brought the focus on the asset-liability mismatches of NBFCs, which poses risks to the NBFC sector as well as the financial system as a whole. To cope up with this issue, RBI has introduced the Liquidity Coverage Ratio requirement for all types of NBFCs with an asset size of Rs.5000 Crore.
As per the new rule, NBFCs are required to maintain high-quality liquid assets to easily deal with net cash outflow in stressed scenarios. From December 2020, NBFC must reach 100% LCR within 4 years.
NBFC’s business mainly comes from the informal and self-employed sectors, so it will have a significant impact on sales fluctuations due to the congestion and interruption of customer terminals caused by Covid-19.
With technology penetrating the industry, the NBFC industry is expanding its services in innovative ways. NBFC Industry has a huge potential in India. At the pan India level, micro-credit reached to not more than 20% of total deserving households through a variety of channels including Banks, small finance banks, and microfinance institutes.
The threat of industry includes a high level of competition. As Small finance banks mainly focus on this segment, and nowadays commercial banks are also showing active interest in the microcredit industry, the competition has become very intense.
