Funding for NBFCs should accompany RBI's liquidity management rules: FIDC

Abhijit Lele/Mumbai 12 Jun 19 | 08:48 PM

The non-banking finance companies, most of whom are cash strapped, want the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) to implement liquidity risk management rules only in tandem with an arrangement for making available much needed funds. Else, RBI should defer the roll out of risk management rules until liquidity situation become normal.  

“The proposed guidelines should be made concomitant with provision of a mechanism of liquidity support for NBFCs. Currently, with the tight liquidity conditions in the industry have made generation of funds a very difficult task. We request the RBI to kindly consider putting in place a suitable mechanism for such liquidity support," Finance Industry Development Council (FIDC), industry lobby group said in representation to RBI.

RBI intends to prescribe stringent rules for liquidity risk management as many NBFCs were hit by a severe asset liability mismatch. They ran their business using short term funds to give long term loans.

FIDC also said that proposed norms should be applied only to those NBFCs that have assets of Rs 1000 crore or more to make the guidelines practicable and yet, address the overall systemic risk. 

Many of these measures such as granular maturity buckets, the stock approach, diversification of funding sources, stress testing etc., become very onerous for non-systemically important, smaller NBFCs, FIDC said.

FIDC also sought exemption from public disclosures for finance companies which are dependent only on bank/institutional loans and have not publicly issued debentures, commercial paper or deposits.
