Talking about the Reserve Bank's decision to allow lenders to recast standard MSME loans, company vice-chairman and managing director Ramesh Iyer said it is a good mover but NBFCs have to take a very prudent view of it.

"Just because regulation allows you one reschedulement, you shouldn't jump into rescheduling all the contracts. Our view is that we will review every contract and where we think that the particular consumer is circumstantially impacted and needs additional time we may take a view," he said.

RBI on Tuesday allowed a one-time restructuring of MSME loans with an aggregate exposure, including non-fund based facilities of banks and NBFCs, of up to Rs 25 crore.

The scheme will be applicable for loans that are in default but standard as of January 1, 2019. The RBI said the restructuring has to be implemented by March 2020.
