RECOVERY OF RETAIL LOANS – DEFAULTS, RESCHEDULING, RECOVERY PROCESS
Candidates can take the Certified Associate of Indian Institute of Bankers (CAIIB) test after passing the JAIIB exam, which is another flagship course by the Indian Institute of Banking and Finance (IIBF). CAIIB’s mission is to assist people in making better decisions by providing advanced information in areas like Treasury Management, Risk Management, Balance Sheet Management, Credit Management, International Banking, and Economic Analysis. One of the most challenging courses for bankers to pass is the CAIIB. However, if you apply our “CAIIB study material,” we guarantee you will pass the CAIIB exam 2023. The CAIIB exam is held twice a year. Candidates must have completed the JAIIB before taking the CAIIB Exam 2023. After talking about the CAIIB EXAM 2023, we would now like to discuss the retail loans, their recovery, defaults, rescheduling, and their recovery process.
WHAT ARE RETAIL LOANS AND HOW DO THEY WORK?
The term “retail loan” refers to a wide variety of loans. Personal loans, such as car loans, mortgages, signature loans, and credit cards, all belong under the retail loan category, but business loans can also fall under the retail loan category. If a business owner obtains a business line of credit, an installment loan, a property mortgage, an equipment loan, a small business credit card, a microloan, or virtually any other sort of loan for his company, those loans are classified as retail loans.
RETAIL LOAN RECOVERIES
Retail assets are one of the biggest revenue generators in banking. Hence banks aggressively build up their retail asset portfolios to increase their business. Because the customer base in retail banking is vast and diverse, the risk is well spread. Foreign banks’ retail asset portfolios, as well as new-generation private sector banks’ total portfolios, are substantially larger than public sector banks. Previously, public sector banks’ retail portfolios accounted for around 30% of their total assets. While the earnings made by a retail portfolio are appealing, the danger of default is still present. Because retail assets like Personal Loans and Credit Card Receivables are unsecured, the portfolio is more susceptible to default.

In retail loans, defaults, and rescheduling are common.
The term “default” refers to an event that occurs due to non-payment of agreed-upon payments. Changes in interest rates have been one of the critical causes of default. Repricing occurs according to the reset clause in fixed and variable pricing or floating rate loans. The monthly installments, also known as EMIS, are determined by the interest rate when the loan is taken out and the agreed-upon repayment period depending on the borrower’s servicing capacity. An increase in the interest rate will raise the EMI, which the consumer may be unable to pay, leading to default and NPA.
RESCHEDULING OF RETAIL LOANS
If a consumer prefers to keep his current EMI rather than increase it, the repayment time is prolonged beyond the previously committed payback period. Rescheduling of retail loans is the term for this phenomenon. Rescheduling is most common in retail loans for housing loans, which have a long time and are guaranteed by a mortgage.
Reasons for Credit Card and Personal Loan Default
- Genuine defaults are caused by circumstances beyond the borrower’s control, such as personal setbacks, job losses, unexpected medical bills, etc. The intention to pay is intact in this situation, but the ability to pay is harmed, resulting in defaults. Because the odds of recovery are good, the bank takes a customer-oriented strategy in this scenario.
- Willful defaults occur when borrowers intentionally default, intending to defraud. The banks’ strategy in deliberate defaults will be recovery-oriented.
PROCESS OF RECOVERY
A recovery process is a scientific approach for keeping retail assets in good shape. It is created in such a way that it can deal with both real and willful defaulters. The recovery process for genuine defaulters must be courteous and professional. The recovery process for wilful defaulters should be stringent and professional. The approach to loans taken by ‘public sector banks’ differs from that of private sector banks and foreign banks. Private and foreign banks outsource their recovery process and commit it to Recovery Agents for end-to-end recovery management when accounts become defaulted. PSBs manage retail loans through their workforce.
