- As per RBI guidelines, credit assistance to artisans, village and cottage Industries and other MSE units up to Rs. 100.00 Lakh for equipment finance or working capital or both should be considered as composite term loan.
- This will enable majority of Micro & Small Enterprises to avail loans from a single window eliminating the need for borrowing term loan from SFCs and working capital from Banks.
- This will also facilitate to sign one set of documents only instead of signing facility-wise separate documents.
Considering the feedback received from Field Level functionaries, it has been decided that financing loan upto Rs. 1.00 Crore shall not be subject to internal credit rating.
- For aggregate exposure above Rs 1 crore, the rate of Interest is decided as per credit Rating.

- Rating from outside rating Agencies :-
Our Bank has entered into MOU with SMERA, Fitch Ratings India (P) Ltd., Dun & Brad Street and ICRA Ltd. for getting the SME borrowers rated by them. The National Small Industries Corporation (NSIC) has been appointed as nodal agency which provides subsidy to the units obtaining credit rating from any of the empanelled agencies to the Micro and Small Enterprises (manufacturing sector, i.e earlier SSI units). The Credit rating awarded by Rating Agencies under NSIC Subsidy Scheme is conclusive for borrower as well as lender.
However, in case of take over a/cs EXTANT guidelines shall continue.
Risk of default in the MSME sector is spread amongst a wide base of borrowers and therefore the pricing.
- Would not be linked to credit rating upto certain limit, presently upto Rs. 1.00 Crore.
