Industry Structure and Development

Lenders are finding ways to manage their books, demand and stay in the business in long-run. The Government has taken a series of measures to generate demand and ease the liquidity by ensuring public sector banks lend further to NBFCs, introducing partial credit guarantee scheme, organizing loan mela etc. The slowdown that has begun cant be turned around that easily for which a booster shot is required. Structurally, the government can make it easier for MSMEs to survive the environment by providing more subsidies to some sectors and build more platforms for small-scale industries to expand. Government should consider relaxing and easing some compliances, for e.g. reforms on taxes or entry requirements for DFIs. Every fundamental indicates towards a higher growth and better future next year, reflecting strong optimism going into 2023.
