resolution framework

RBI circular dated 6th August, 2021 wherein they have given more time upto 1st October, 2022 for stressed borrowers to meet their key parameters for being considered as a normal borrowing unit, rather than a stressed borrowing unit. This is done in view of the resurgence of the covid-19 cases in the country.

Resolution Framework for COVID-19-related Stress – Financial Parameters – Revised timelines for compliance

Please refer to the circular DOR.No.BP.BC/13/21.04.048/2020-21 dated September 7, 2020 inter alia advising the key ratios and their sector specific thresholds to be considered by lending institutions while finalising the resolution plans in respect of eligible borrowers under Part B of the Annex to the Resolution Framework for Covid-19 related stress issued on August 6, 2020.

2. The key ratios consisted of four operational ratios, viz., Total Debt / EBITDA, Current Ratio, Debt Service Coverage Ratio (DSCR) and Average Debt Service Coverage Ratio (ADSCR), along with the ratio Total Outside Liabilities / Adjusted Tangible Net Worth (TOL/ATNW) representing the debt-equity mix of the borrower post implementation of the resolution plan.

3. In view of the resurgence of the Covid-19 pandemic in 2021 and recognising the difficulties it may pose for the borrowers in meeting the operational parameters, it has been decided to defer the target date for meeting the specified thresholds in respect of the four operational parameters, viz. Total Debt / EBIDTA, Current Ratio, DSCR and ADSCR, to October 1, 2022.

4. The target date for achieving the ratio TOL/ATNW, as crystallised in terms of the resolution plan, shall remain unchanged as March 31, 2022.
