Virat Leasing Ltd Management Discussions.
MANAGEMENT DISCUSSION & ANALYSIS REPORT
INDUSTRY TREND AND DEVELOPMENT
Indias economic growth is estimated to grow 7.8 percent in the current fiscal year compared to 7.4 percent last year, on account of increased economic activity and greater stability. However, acceleration in growth is conditional on the development of social and economic conditions of the Country. Moreover, with the banking system clearly constrained in terms of expanding their lending activities, the role of NBFCs becomes even more important now, especially when 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. India remains one of the fastest emerging market economies in the global landscape. Innovation and diversification are the important contributors to achieve the desired objective. The Companys principal business being investment in shares and securities, the Company looks forward to increased activities in this segment. However, the Management will continue to review the business strategy from time to time depending on the changes in the policy of Government and Reserve Bank of India. During the year under review favorable conditions prevailed in the market which have been reflected in the profitability of the Company.
OPPORTUNITIES AND THREATS
While NBFCs have witnessed substantial growth over the years, there are few areas of concern which need to be addressed. For instance, while NBFCs have enjoyed an edge over banks in semi-urban & rural markets where banking network is not yet strong, they have limited spread in urban markets. Nonetheless, in recent years, NBFCs have begun to create niches for themselves that are often neglected by banks. These primarily include providing finance to non-salaried individuals, traders, transporters, stock brokers, etc.
In the past few years, the increased competition from banks in the retail finance segment has led to excess diversification by NBFCs from their core business activities. The sector has witnessed introduction of various innovative products such as used vehicles financing, small personal loans, three-wheeler financing, IPO financing, finance for tyres & fuel, asset management, mutual fund distribution and insurance advisory, etc. Besides, NBFCs are aspiring to emerge as a one-stop shop for all financial services.
As earlier stated, not only World Bank but other authorities also appear to be optimistic about the growth potential of Indias economy. The financial results of the year under review have improved and it is expected that the current year may produce even better results barring unforeseen circumstances.
