The World Bank forecasts global economic growth to edge up to 3.1 percent in 2018 after a much stronger-than- expected 2017, as the recovery in investment, manufacturing, and trade continues, and as commodity-exporting developing economies benefit from firming commodity prices.

However, this is largely seen as a short-term upswing. Over the longer term, slowing potential growth—a measure of how fast an economy can expand when labor and capital are fully employed—puts at risk gains in improving living standards and reducing poverty around the world, the World Bank warns in its January 2018 Global Economic Prospects.


In the midst of global slowdown and the transient impact of demonetization, the Indian economy turned out resilient, marked by both internal and external stability. While economic growth moderated in 2016-17, there were visible signs of improvement in macroeconomic fundamentals - low inflation, and modest current account deficit and fiscal deficit. Going forward, even as the recent launch of the Goods and Services Tax (GST) gains traction across the country, strengthening fiscal consolidation, particularly at the sub-national level; reviving bank credit, and bringing investment back on rails, remain a challenge.


Non-Banking Finance Companies (NBFCs) play an important role in promoting inclusive growth in the country, by catering to the diverse financial needs of various categories. Further, NBFCs often take lead role in providing innovative financial services to Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) most suitable to their business requirements. NBFCs have also been supplementing the role of the organized banking sector by bridging the credit gaps, i.e., in meeting the increasing financial needs of the corporate sector, delivering credit to the unorganized sector and to small local borrowers.

The NBFC sector has grown considerably in the last few years despite the slowdown in the economy. In terms of year-over-year growth rate, the NBFC sector beat the banking sector in most years between 2006 and 2013. On an average, it grew 22% every year. This shows, it is contributing more to the economy every year.

Non Banking Financial Companies (NBFCs) are governed by the Reserve Bank of India vide powers conferred under chapter III- B of Reserve Bank of India Act, 1934.

From time to time, the Central Government as well as Reserve Bank of India has been working towards regulation of these NBFCs. The Department of Non-Banking Supervision of RBI has been indulged in these activities of regulating as well as supervising the NBFCs.


The NBFC sector in India is large with significant growth potential and has consistently created value for its shareholders. The NBFCs business model has strengthened considerably over the past few years in terms of access to varied funding sources. The growth in the sector appears sustainable as India has a low GDP to credit penetration. Further, many structural factors are supportive of NBFC growth namely weak banks, initiatives of the Reserve Bank of India ("RBI") on policy alignment and latent credit demand in certain segments not catered to by banks. In order for the sector to sustain its advantages, companies in the sector need to grow in a prudent manner while focusing on financial innovation, analytics, digital and adequate risk management systems and procedures. The RBI constantly issues new regulations and / or modifies existing regulations endeavoring to balance the multiple objectives of financial stability, consumer and depositor protection and regulatory arbitrage concerns. The RBI, however, implements major changes

in a structured manner providing companies operating in the sector adequate time to adapt and adjust. When it comes to lending, NBFCs are generally regarded to be complementary to banks and are often able to offer better services and products to their customers.

ADHARSHILA CAPITAL SERVICES LIMITED (ACSL) sees huge growth opportunities in each of its existing business areas, and will also be expanding the focus of activities to new areas, arising from the strong growth momentum in the economy.

As the Companys main motive is to provide financing facilities within the Group, Company is not having internal or external threat.

More stringent capital adequacy norms have been stipulated by RBI for NBFCs which is making difficult for them to give cheaper finance.
