In a Govt pampered PR event, it was announced few weeks back that RBI had stepped to save the bleeding economy from effects of COVID-19 pandemic including some big measures and guidelines for real estate and capital finance predators.
The RBI said all term loans of all banks and lenders are permitted to grant a moratorium of three months on payments of all installments falling due between March 1, 2020 and May 31, 2020. The repayment schedule of these loans will be shifted across the board by three months after the moratorium period.
It essentially means borrowers won’t have to pay EMIs during the moratorium period and it won’t be deducted from their bank accounts. Further the interest will continue to accrue on the outstanding part of the loan during the moratorium period.
If consumers choose to avail the benefit of moratorium, borrower’s so-called credit rating will not be impacted. All of this in paper and rule books, what happens in practice only those millions of suffering locked lot can have any say!
