How does Co-Lending work?
The RBI had earlier laid out the co-origination framework in 2018, allowing banks and NBFCs to co-originate loans. But, in 2020, RBI Co-Lending guidelines were further amended and renamed as CLM- Co-Lending Models. It included Housing Finance Companies, and some modifications were made in its framework.
CLM aims to improve the credit flow to the unserved and underserved segments of the economy at an affordable cost. The model works on the principle that banks have lower costs of funds, and NBFCs have greater reach beyond tier-2 centers.
As per RBI norms, a minimum of 20% of the credit risk through direct exposure shall be on NBFCs books until maturity, and the balance of 80% will be on the bank’s books. The bank and NBFC share the repayment & recovery of interest in proportion to their shares in credit and interest, respectively, upon maturity.
To simply put how Co-Lending works:
✓ Banks lend to NBFC, and since NBFCs have a greater reach, they pass it on to the priority sectors.
✓ NBFCs serve as the single point of contact for the customers, and a tripartite agreement is signed between the customers, banks, and NBFCs.
