Scheme for takeover of loan of other Institution/Banks

The Corporation has a scheme for take over of loans of other Institutions / Banks, along sanctioning of loan for expansion/modernization schemes of such companies. This will facilitate dealings of the company with one institution; improve the asset quality of the Corporation, while reducing the cost of funds for the borrowers.

The scheme shall be subject to following parameters:-

  • All the parameters of general loan scheme such as Debt Equity Ratio, loan limit shall be applicable for this scheme also. The assets coverage ratio for the loan being taken over should not be less than 1.5 times.
  • The unit should be in existence and profits at least for the last one year.
  • The unit should be regular with the institutions/banks from where it has availed financial assistance and the account should have been classified as 'standard assets
  • The collateral security as may have been given to other institution/banks shall be obtained.
  • The entire loan should be taken over and loan thus taken over shall be secured by way of first charge on fixed assets of the company.
  • The payment should be directly released in favour of institution/banks which has extended the financial assistance.

However, this take-over of loans will not be in isolation and shall be resorted to only when company has scheme for additional loan for expansion/ modernisation.

Monitoring and follow-up

Once financial assistance is extended to any client, sharing of information relating to the project is important. The Corporation has a system to follow-up the progress of the case at all stages. Following information, which may be useful to both lender and the borrower, is required to be submitted :

During implementation of the project

Quarterly progress reports of the project are required in the prescribed format.

After Implementation of the Project the client is required to comply with the following:

  • Annual renewal of Insurance cover of the assets;
  • Submission of half yearly reports (quarterly reports in case of listed Companies) indicating actual performance vis-a-vis projections in prescribed format;
  • Submission of audited annual accounts;
  • Physical verification of the assets by the officer(s) of the Corporation at least twice in a year;
  • Balance confirmation as on 31st March of every year, till the assistance is fully repaid.
  • Intimation of change in Directors/promoters, if any
  • Annual statement of net worth of guarantors
  • Conduct quarterly Board meetings in the presence of Nominee Director

Recoveries:

The Corporation's capability to serve its clients in the best possible manner is dependent upon timely recoveries of its advances to the borrowers. The clients should be aware that their loan accounts are classified in three categories as per the guidelines issued by the RBI. These categories are:-

  • Standard Assets
  • Sub-standard Assets
  • Doubtful Assets

The classification of loan account in any of the above categories and provisioning in lieu thereof is to be done by the Corporation in accordance with the guidelines issued by the RBI from time to time. However, the clients must understand that while the provisions are just nominal in case of standard assets, these keeps on going up with the loan accounts becoming sub-standard and doubtful assets in line with the aging of default as well as realizable security cover available to the Corporation towards repayment of interest and principal amounts. It is, therefore, crucial both for the Corporation as well as the client to ensure that his account does not become a non-performing asset (NPA) and remains in the Standard Asset category.

Recovery Schedule

The repayment of principal and interest thereon is required to be made in quarterly installments falling due on 30th April, 31st July, 31st Oct. and 31st January in a financial year (these dates may be different in old cases). The rationale behind recovering the due amount on a quarterly basis lies in the Corporations liability to service the loans/ refinance it avails from banks/ refinancing institutions for its clients.

The repayment schedule of installments is worked out on the basis of tenure of the loan at the time of first disbursement. However, there are also cases where a client may not need to avail some portion of the sanctioned loan and he may be in a position to complete his project without really needing the balance unutilised assistance. In such cases, the client will be allowed the benefit of re-fixation of his installments only once in accordance with the amount of loan actually disbursed and the tenure of the loan subject to his furnishing an undertaking that the balance unutilised component of the loan be cancelled. However, in all such cases, the amount paid by them towards initial installments till the date he makes such request will not be recalculated for re-fixing the installment schedule. In other words, while revising the repayment installment amount, retrospective benefit will not be admissible.

Accountd

Normally, the client is supposed to know the amount of installment falling due on a particular date as per the repayment schedule fixed at the time of first disbursement or re-fixed subsequently and he is expected to adhere to the repayment schedule. However, for the convenience of the client, the Corporation also has a system whereby the client would be served with a Demand Notice just before repayment of the installment amount falls due. Similarly, he would also be receiving his account statement after realisation of the credit of the payment made by him. However, the client may please note that any failure on the part of the Corporation to send such a Demand Notice would not provide him with the plea that he could not make the payment as he had not received such Demand Notice. The account statement is sent on a regular basis.

Timely credit to HSIIDC's Account

The borrowers may please note that the repayment to HSIIDC is taken into account on the day the amount gets credited to the HSIIDC's account and not on the day he issues a cheque/ draft payable towards such repayment. Hence, the clients would be well advised to send their drafts/ cheques well in time if they want to avail of the interest rebate or save on penal interest for the period of delay involved in realisation of the amount to the HSIIDC's account. The borrowers are also advised that they must issue the cheque/ draft/ pay order payable at the station where it is sent for realisation i.e. branch office or head office, whatever the case may be.

Rebate and Penalities

  1. Rebate:- The Corporation has a scheme to allow interest rebate which is linked with the timely repayments of interest and principal. The rebate presently being allowed is 1% on interest rate and the benefit of this is extended in the third quarter, after watching the regularity of payment of interest and principal for last two quarters. The scheme of interest rebate is subject to review from time to time. While the interest rebate may be lowered at some point of time, it may as well be discontinued altogether at some time.
  2. Penalties:- The objective of penal interest is to act as a deterrent for default and encourage timely payments. In case of default, penal interest @ 3% p.a. over and above the documented rate is charged on the defaulted amount for the period of default.

Other stringent recovey measures

In cases of consistent and deliberate defaults, and where the Corporation has failed to effect its recoveries after exhausting all persuasive methods, the Corporation is competent to proceed under Section 29 of the SFCs Act and resort to coercive action there under. It may be clarified here that invoking SFCs Act for the recoveries is done as a matter of last resort but let the borrowers also note that the assets of the company can be taken over under the provisions of this Act and disposed off for recovery of its dues.

Pre-payment of Term Loan or Any Other type of Financial Assistance:

Generally, pre-payment of loans is discouraged. This is because the refinancing institutions from whom HSIIDC raises resources also do not accept pre-payments. Moreover, it upsets the financing plans of the Corporation besides resulting in higher costs very often. Wherever the Corporation agrees to accept pre-payment of loan, the charges are 1% of pre-paid amount. However, acceptance of pre-payment is at the sole discretion of the Corporation.

Rescheduling of Loan:

Generally, rescheduling of loans is discouraged and not allowed unless there are genuine and compelling reasons. Wherever it is agreed in principle, the request of the borrower must be supported with the following documents:

  • Financial statements for the last two years and current year;
  • Projections for the remaining period of loan;
  • Reasons for seeking rescheduling; and
  • Proposal for rescheduling.

Rate of Interest in case of Re-scheduling

  • First Re-scheduling: Documented rate or the rate prevailing at the time of acceptance of the rescheduling proposal, whichever is higher.
  • Second Re-scheduling: 1% above the documented rate or 1% above the rate prevailing at the time of rescheduling, whichever is higher, on the rescheduled amount for the period of rescheduling.
  • Re-scheduling beyond currency period: 0.5% above the rate of interest applicable for the respective rescheduling(s) within the existing currency period for the loan as mentioned above, for the extended period.
