What is NBFC crisis & How it happens?

  • NBFCs borrow money from banks or sell commercial papers to mutual funds to raise money.
  • This money is then given as a loan to small and medium enterprises, retail customers and so on.
  • But when NBFCs face liquidity crunch i.e. shortage of money, this leads to NBFC CRISIS.

The NBFC business model itself is flawed. It raises short-term funds which are then lent out as long-term loans. For example, an NBFC raises money by selling 6-month debt papers and on-lends this as a car loan with a tenure of 5 years. Now, every time the NBFC has to renew the 6-month debt paper or raise fresh loans to repay the old debt paper. This cycle continues but the cycle gets broken by the default of some firms. This creates fear among banks, mutual funds that more such entities could default. Due to this many institutions refuse to give money to NBFCs. This leads to NBFC crisis.
