MANAGEMENT DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS REPORT Overview:

The global growth story continues to decelerate from 2019, marked by a weakness in trade and investments. This trend was visible in advanced and emerging markets. With the uncertain growth and a slowdown in credit demand, financing companies are expected to turn cautious, going forward. The sector faced liquidity pressure with higher funding cost and is expected to face headwinds for asset quality. The profitability is expected to be under pressure, with lower credit growth and higher credit cost.

Outlook:

The coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak at the start of 2020 unleashed a health and economic crises, unprecedented in scope and magnitude, with lockdowns and border closures paralyzing economic activity and laying off millions of workers across the world. With extensive restrictions on economic activities, the global economy was at a virtual standstill through the second quarter of 2020. To minimize the impact of this economic catastrophe, our Government and Reserve Bank of India proactively initiated a set of measures and supply side reforms to lend flexibility, resilience and stimulate the economy. This has led to v- shaped recovery across sectors with resurgence of consumer confidence, robust financial markets and uptake in exports. The key threats include, the changes/slowdown in the implementation of the government policies because of COVID- 19 pandemic, delay & short term fall out in implementation of economic booster packages, failure to contain actual inflation within a reasonable range, high NPAs of the banks, defaults & frauds, governing rules of SEBI and RBI etc.
