The NBFC sector in India has shown remarkable resilience in recovering from the challenges posed by the pandemic. The economic slowdown and disruptions caused by the pandemic had a significant impact on the credit and asset quality of the sector, but recent data suggests that the collection efficiency of NBFCs has remained healthy. Collection efficiency has ranged from 97% to 105% during the first nine months of FY23, which is a positive sign. This trend is attributed to improved economic activity and a favourable operating environment, as well as non-banks returning to normal operations after two years of pandemic-induced disruptions.
In recent years, the microfinance portfolio of NBFCs has been growing steadily, with a positive trend in loan disbursals and collection efficiencies. Leading to greater financial inclusion in the country by providing access to credit for low-income individuals and businesses. In Q3 FY23, NBFC-MFIs disbursed INR 33,786 crores, representing a growth of 47% compared to the same period last year. Microfinance loan disbursals increased by almost 19% to INR 77,877 crores, and nearly 189 lakh loans were disbursed, compared to 165 lakh in Q3 FY22. This growth in loan disbursals is a positive indicator for the NBFC sector.
