Measures announced today to infuse liquidity, facilitate bank credit flow and ease financial stress will surely help industry and economy fight this deadly pandemic.”

Further Singla said, “Rs 50,000 crore special finance facility provided to financial institutions such as NABARD, SIDBI and NHB will surely help the rural economy which is stressed for funds due to the crisis.”

“Additional steps like; 90-day NPA norm not to apply on to the moratorium granted on the existing loans by banks, lowering the reverse repo rate and LCR requirement of banks brought down to 80 percent from 100 percent, will surely ease pressure on the banking system,” he added.
