Risk Factors:

  • The banking sector in India is highly regulated sectors that need to follow the strict norms and guidelines instructed by the RBI to provide transparent and highly secured baking and financial services to customers. Hence, operating with such strict rules and regulations becomes a challenging factor for the NBFCs or small finance banks (SFBs) to expand their business as per their feasibility of growth.
  • Not only in the banking sector in the small finance banks (SFBs) segment too there is too much competition. According to the RBI’s Annual Report 2022-23, there are 140 commercial banks including 43 regional rural banks (RRBs), 2 local area banks (LABs), 6 payment banks (PBs), 1,887 cooperative banks –the latter consisting of 33 state cooperative banks, 352 district central cooperative banks and 1,502 urban cooperative banks (UCBs) and 12 small finance banks (SFBs) are operating in a different part of the country.
  • The unexpected, COVID-19-like crisis has reiterated the underlying risks of the business models of most SFBs –' high touch' operations, personalised doorstep services, including centre meetings, driven predominantly by cash collection processes for the microfinance segment of customers. Hence, these kinds of unfavourable economic conditions are challenging for the SFBs.
  • As per the RBI rules, all the SFBs need to extend 75.0% of Adjusted Net Bank Credit (ANBC) to sectors eligible for classification as priority sector lending (PSL). That is not applicable to
  • Apart from that, SFBs have to maintain at least 25.0% of their banking outlets in unbanked rural areasand at least 50.0% of their loan portfolio must comprise loans and advances of up to Rs. 2.5 million, while such regulations are not imposed on NBFCs.
  • Compared to NBFCs another challenging factor for SFBs is to maintain the minimum Capital Adequacy Ratio (CAR) of 15.0% of its risk-weighted assets (RWA) and maintain a minimum of 3.5% of CRR and 18% of SLR, while on the other hand, NBFCs do not have to maintain any CRR and SLR.
  • A high liquidity ratio indicates that a bank holds a low amount of liquid assets, which affects its ability to pay its debt obligations and short-term liabilities. If the bank is unable to decrease its liquidity ratio, it could have an adverse effect on the business operations of the bank.
  • Banks have made new loans to microfinance loan borrowers who had NPAs ("Microfinance NPA Borrowers"), with earlier NPAs being netted off with the proceeds of new loans, which poses a  risk of further deteriorating asset quality and increasing credit risk.
