NBFC & HFC Crisis Real Estate Sector

Author Name: Dr. Adv. Harshul Savla | Format: Paperback | Genre : Business, Investing & Management | Other Details
Amazon Sales Rank: Ranked #19 in Real Estate

NBFC cannot offer CASA (Current Account, Savings Accounts) – Demand and Time Deposits, hence its cost of funds are expensive as compared to banks who offer CASA. Many a time, NBFCs borrow from Banks hence they lend at a higher rate, however they offer better structuring and flexibility of repayment. NBFC can have 100% foreign investment. In India, the working and operations of NBFCs are regulated by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) within the framework of the RBI Act, 1934 (Chapter III-B) and the directions issued by it.

An HFC is a NBFC which offers home loans just like traditional banks. However, the difference between an NBFC and HFC is that the latter deals in home loans only. HFCs are governed and regulated by NHB (National Housing Bank). The loan sanctioning process is usually more tedious with banks in comparison to the HFCs. The latter usually has fewer paperwork requirements and fewer formalities.

The NBFC (Non-Banking Financial Company) and HFC (Housing Finance Crisis) crisis started with the failure of one of the most respected NBFCs in India, IL&FS, followed by DHFL, Reliance Capital, Altico etc. This NBFC and HFC crisis is unique in the sense that it is both a driver and a reflection of the economic slowdown. NBFCs create credit especially among those segments of the population to whom banks are skeptical in extending loans, because of their risky credit profile. They fund developers and home buyers which creates demand in the economy. As NBFCs struggled in the wake of a general wave of fear relating to the sector after the IL&FS crisis, banks cut down on their NBFC exposures, further exacerbating NBFCs’ funding positions. When lending by and to NBFCs goes down, demand in multiple sectors is affected, creating a vicious cycle.
