Risk Factors

Risk of non-payment or default

As of March 31, 2023, 81.33% of the total AUM of Secured MSME Loan customers are self-employed. Between April 1, 2021 and March 31, 2023, 80.14% of the loans disbursed were to self-employed customers, amounting to ₹ 42,051.68 million. A significant portion of the loan portfolio is relatively new and was disbursed during the last 36 months.

The company has a high risk of non-payment or default for customers with annual income below ₹ 0.30 million (monthly income below ₹ 25,000) in the corresponding periods. The figures below are the GNPAs for this segment:

Particulars As of March 31
2021 2022 2023
Average LTV on AUM on Origination Basis for Secured MSME Loans (% 45.17% 43.42% 42.51%
Average LTV on AUM on Origination Basis for Loan against Gold (%) 67.88% 69.49% 48.51%
Geographic concentration

As of March 31, 2023, 69.98% of AUM is from six states. While branches are spread across 16 states and two union territories in India (with no state contributing more than 17.42% AUM as of March 31, 2023), the concentration in these states exposes us to any adverse geological, ecological, economic and/or political circumstances in those respective regions.

Non-performing assets (NPA)

Higher levels of NPA may impact the quality of the company's portfolio and could adversely affect its business if it fails to adequately provide for these NPAs. As of end of FY23, the GNPA, NNPA and provision coverage ratio stood at 2.43%, 1.41% and 42.04%, respectively.

Credit downgrade

Rating downgrade may lead to rise in borrowing costs, which lead to difficulty in financing access, and adversely impact the business.
