Anticipating the impact of RBI’s recent decision on personal loans, rating agency CRISIL Ratings today said India’s non-banking financial companies (NBFC) sector will see a decline in growth in the current financial year due to slow expansion in personal loans. A moderate growth of 16-18 percent is expected.
Growth may be up to 17 percent in the next financial year:-
Crisil Ratings said the asset under management retail loan segment of NBFCs is likely to grow by 14-17 percent in the next financial year due to continued strong credit demand.
Growth in home and vehicle loans will remain stable:-
According to CRISIL, home loans, and vehicle loans, the two largest traditional segments of finance, now account for 25-27 percent of NBFC AUM each. Both these segments are expected to register steady growth.
In the home loan segment, growth of 12-14 percent next fiscal will be driven by HFCs’ focus on affordable home loans (ticket size less than Rs 25 lakh), while vehicle finance is expected to grow 18-19 percent this year.
