Odyssey Corporation Ltd Management Discussions.


Your Directors have pleasure in presenting the Management Discussion and Analysis report for the year ended on 31st March 2019.


NBFCs are an integral part of the Countrys financial system complementing the Services of Commercial Banks. The main reason attributed to the growth of NBFCs is the comprehensive regulation of the banking system. Other factors include higher level of customer orientation, lesser pre/post sanction requirements and higher rates of interest on deposits being offered by NBFCs. It is mandatory that every NBFC should be registered with RBI to carry on any business of non-banking financial institution. The activities of Non-banking companies in India have undergone qualitative changes over the years through functional specialization. The role of NBFCs as effective financial intermediaries has been well recognized as they have inherent ability to take quicker decisions, assume greater risks, and customized their services and charges more according to the needs of the clients. While, this features as compared to the banks, have contributed to the proliferation of NBFCs , their flexible structures allow them to unbundle services provided by banks and market the components on a competitive basis. The differences between the banks and non-banks have been gradually getting blurred since both the segments of the financial system engage themselves in many similar types of activities. At present NBFCs in India have become prominent in a wide range of activities like hire purchase finance, equipment lease finance, loans, investments, etc. By employing innovative marketing strategies and devising tailor-made products, NBFCs have also been able to build up a clientele base among the depositors , mop up public savings and command large resources as reflected in the growth of their deposits from public, shareholders , directors and other companies , and borrowings by issue of non-convertible debentures, etc.

The importance of NBFCs in delivering credit to the unorganized sectors and small borrowers at the local levels in response to local requirements is well recognized. The rising importance of this segment calls for increased regulatory attention and focused supervisory scrutiny in the interests of the financial stability and depositor protection. The RBI and the Government had taken notable steps to address the economic headwinds. The Government formed the Project Management Group to facilitate large projects, undertake actions on power tariffs, gas price and continued diesel price increases. The RBI initiated efforts at recognizing and cleaning up Non-Performing Assets (NPAs). On the policy front it introduced a shift in focus of Consumer Price Inflation (CPI) from Wholesale Price Inflation (WPI), and a move towards Inflation targeting. If implemented correctly and in a time bound manner, these collectively have the ability to create a meaningful impact on the economy. Though the real economy volatility and its related pitfalls. The year ahead will be Challenging on the interest rate and credit quality front.


A broad picture of the role of NBFCs and their inter connectedness they have in the financial sector can be gauged from the details given below:


The RBI circulated new norms for the sector, title "Revised Regulatory Framework for NBFCs" on November, 10 2014. These were aimed at strengthening the structural prolife of NBFCs and at the same time, safeguarding the interests of the depositors. An approved credit rating agency for the purpose of rating fixed deposits for NBFCs. Accordingly, NBFCs may also use the ratings for SMERA for the purpose of rating their Fixed Deposits.

Provisioning of doubtful assets -In July 2014, RBI released a circular outlining prudential norm on income recognition, asset classification and provisioning pertaining to advances. The rules related to minimum net owned funds were tightened and the deposit acceptance ratio, capital norms, asset classification rules and corporate governance norms were made more stringent.

This initiative will bring about parity in regulation for NMFCs registered with the RBI and other financial institutions, in matters relating to recovery. With respect to lending against shares, NBFCs are now required to maintain an LTV ratio of 50% and accept only Group 1 securities specified by SEBI) as collateral for loans with the values of more than 5 lakhs, subject to review. Further all NBFCs with asset sizes of 1,000 million and above are required to report on-line to stock exchanges, information on the shares pledged in their favour, by borrowers availing loans. The RBI has accredited SME Rating Agency of India Limited (SMERA).
