Shree Nidhi Trading Company Ltd Management Discussions.

1. Industry Structure & Development
The year 2017-18 witnessed digitalization and an array of major reforms for the economy. The spillovers of the demonetization impact were clearly witnessed. Further, the transformational Goods and Services Tax (GST) was launched in July 2017, with the motive of the creation of a single national market, common tax base and common tax laws for the Centre and States and to eliminate the cascading effects of various taxes, thereby, aiming at facilitating the ease of doing business. Also, the Indian Bankruptcy Code (IBC) has provided a resolution framework that will help corporates clean up their balance sheets and reduce their debts. Moreover, the Government has also given significant importance to digitalization. In fact, the Budget 2018 has emphasized on the need to inculcate reforms, digitalization, employment and corruption free nation.
Indian businesses have successfully coped with numerous policy-led re-alignments, which will enable a secured future for the market. As global economic activity continues to strengthen, the Indian Economy is expected to grow further in the upcoming years.
The Non Banking Financial Companies (NBFCs) play a vital role in promoting inclusive growth since, it is an important alternative channel of finance for the commercial sector in Indias bank dominated financial sector.
Their role in promoting financial inclusion and catering to the needs of small businesses and specialised segments is an additional dimension of their relevance in the Indian context. Presently, the importance of NBFCs has increased, in lieu of the mounting bad-debt problems and asset quality concerns being faced by the public sector banks. Also, the government has a strong focus on promoting entrepreneurship so that India can emerge as a country of job creators instead of being one of job seekers and hence, the role of NBFCs has gained more importance because, they play an important role in nation building and financial inclusion by complementing the banking sector in reaching out credit to the unbanked segments of society, especially to the micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs), which form the cradle of entrepreneurship and innovation. In fact, while presenting the Budget 2018, the Finance Minister made a special mention on the role of Non-Bank Finance Companies (NBFCs) as a powerful medium in delivering finances and that, NBFCs can be very powerful vehicle for delivering loans under Micro Units Development and Refinance Agency Ltd. (MUDRA).
NBFCs still do not enjoy a level playing field. This needs to be addressed to help NBFCs realise their full potential and thereby perform their duties with greater efficiency. Regulation of NBFC sector over a last decade and a half has been incremental.

As a matter of policy, these risks are assessed and steps as appropriate are taken to mitigate the same. Non-Banking Finance Companies (NBFCs) continue to play a critical role in making financial Services accessible to a wider set of Indias population and are emerging as strong intermediaries in the retail finance space.
The biggest challenges before NBFCs are that they are facing stiff competition from banks and financial institutions, due to their ability to raise low cost funds which enables them to provide funds at much cheaper rate. More stringent capital adequacy norms have been stipulated by RBI for NBFCs which is making difficult for them to give cheaper finance. Ever-increasing competition from commercial counterparts whose capacity to absorb losses is higher, counter-party failures, recommendations being made to increase the purview of monitoring by regulatory authorities increase the threat of losing the essence of Non-banking Finance Companies which are specifically designed to reach out and finance certain target groups.
