Coverage of topic Financing of NBFCs Financing of agriculture Financing of SHG/JLG
What is exposure The amount which would be lost in default given the worst possible assumption about recovery in the liquidation or bankruptcy of an obligor. For a loan this is full facility amount plus accrued interest. For a partly used facility the prevailing practice is to still say the full facility amount is exposed. This is because the worst assumption is that the borrower draws the full amount and then immediately default.
Why exposure limits Is aimed at better risk management and avoidance of concentration of credit risk. Limits to be fixed on an UCB’s exposure to to individual borrowers and group borrowers : (individual, proprietor, corporate, partnership) to specific sectors: (commercial real estate, steel, cement, housing etc) towards unsecured advances : (clean ODs, loans without securities) and unsecured guarantees.
Exposure ceiling to individual/group borrowers The exposure limits in relation to UCBs capital funds are fixed with the approval of Board of Directors. The exposure for the purpose shall comprise both credit exposure and investment exposure (Non SLR) The exposure to an individual borrower does not exceed 15% of capital funds The exposure to a group of borrowers does not exceed 40% of capital funds.
Periodicity of computation To be computed every year after finalization and audit of balance sheet of the bank. Banks can fix a fresh exposure limit taking into account the amount of share capital available on 30th September. No excess exposures to be taken in anticipation of infusion of capital on a future date.
Capital Funds Capital funds comprise both Tier I and Tier II Capital Elements of Tier I Capital Paid up share capital collected from regular members having voting rights Less : intangible assets and losses Contributions received from associate / nominal members where the bye- laws permit allotment of shares to them and provided there are restrictions on withdrawal of such shares as applicable to regular members Contribution / non refundable admission fees collected from the nominal and associate members which is separately held as ‘reserves "under a separate head of account as these are not refundable. Perpetual Non – cumulative preference shares
Tier I capital Net paid up capital Reserves and surplus (i)Statutory reserves (ii)Capital reserves (iii)Other reserves (iv)Surplus in Profit and Loss Account
Elements of Tier II Capital Undisclosed reserves (accumulation of post tax profits) Revaluation reserves (at 55% discount) General provisions and loss reserves Investment fluctuation reserves/funds Hybrid debt capital instruments (characteristics of debt/equity) Subordinated debts (fully paid up, unsecured,free of restrictive clauses, no redemption without bank’s consent)
CREDIT EXPOSURE Credit exposure includes: Funded (CC, TL, WCDL, Cheque discounting, ODs,- all possible forms where the bank has parted funds to the borrower.) Non-funded credit limits and underwriting and similar commitments (LC, BGs, commitments, underwriting, any other financial commitment which may devolve on the bank) Facilities extended by way of equipment leasing and hire purchase financing and Ad- hoc limits sanctioned to the borrowers to meet the contingencies It does not include loans and advances granted against the security of bank’s own term deposits
CREDIT EXPOSURE (contd) The sanctioned limit or outstanding whichever is higher shall be reckoned for arriving at the credit limit Term Loan: Balance outstanding if fully drawn (no scope for any further drawings or no further disbursements due) In case of non- funded limit 100% of such limit or outstanding which is higher is to be reckoned for the purpose. In case of consortium /multiple banking the level of individual bank’s share shall be governed by single borrower/group exposure.
Group Banks have to decide whether a borrowing unit belongs to a group or not based on information available with them. The guiding principle in this regard is commonality of management and effective control
Real Estate Sector Exposure Limit The UCBs should ensure that bank credit is used for construction activity and not for activity connected with speculation activity in real estate Exposure to housing, real estate and commercial real estate loans limited to 10% of total assets wef Nov 15, 2010 instead of 15% deposits 10% can be exceeded by an additional limit of 5% of total assets for the purpose of grant of housing loans to individuals for dwelling units costing Rs 25 lakh. (UBD.BPD. (PCB) 31/13/05.000/ dated April 26, 2012) Total assets to be reckoned based on the audited balance sheet as on March 31 of the preceding financial year.
Exposure to real estate Working capital loans given against hypothecation of construction materials provided to the contractors who undertake comparatively small construction on their own without receiving advance payments is exempted from the prescribed limit. With effect from May 11, 2011 UCBS cannot exceed the prescribed exposure limit even if funds are obtained from the higher financing agencies or from NHB
Maximum Loan Amount Subject to exposure norms a Tier I UCB may grant housing loans up to a maximum amount of Rs lakh per beneficiary of a dwelling unit. Tier II UCB may extend housing loans up to a maximum of Rs lakhs per beneficiary of a dwelling unit. (ref cir 7 dated 31/10/2011)
