Research excerpt

The state of the banking market in India

The banking sector is one of the most important parts of the country's financial system. 

The tasks of this sector include:

ensuring uninterrupted service of the national payment system;
ensuring the safety of depositors' funds;
transformation of depositors' funds into loans;
lending to the real sector of the economy, which is included in the asset structure of Indian banks

Using credit funds, both financing of large national projects in India and the issuance of consumer loans, loans for business development (small, medium, large) are carried out. 

As of August 1, 2021, 376 operating credit institutions are registered in India. About 90% of this number are banks, of which 62% or 233 banks have a universal license. The share of non-bank credit organizations as of August 2021 is 10% or 36 organizations.

Market Dynamics

Since 2018, the growth in intraday lending by the Central Bank of India has been negative.

During 2020, against the backdrop of the spread of the COVID19 virus pandemic and the unstable economic situation, the Bank of India issued loans totaling Rs 54 billion. While for the same period in 607, intraday loans were issued in the amount of 2019 billion rupees.

The forecast for the development of the banking market in India should be based on official statistics released by the Central Bank of India. One of the main important indicators of the success of the banking sector will be the dynamics of the central lending rate set by the Bank of India. When setting this rate, the specialists of the Central Bank are guided by economic forecasts and adjust the rate based on indicators of inflation dynamics, monetary conditions, economic activity, and inflationary risks.

On July 23, 2021, the Board of Directors of the Bank of India decided to raise the key rate to 6,5% per annum. The Bank of India estimates that in the second quarter of 2021, the Indian economy reached pre-pandemic levels. The contribution to inflation from stable factors increased due to the increase in demand compared to the opportunities to increase output. Taking into account high inflationary expectations, this has significantly shifted the balance of risks for inflation towards pro-inflationary ones and may lead to a longer upward deviation of inflation from the target.

The adopted decision on the key rate is aimed at limiting this risk and returning inflation to 4%.

According to the forecast of the Bank of India, annual inflation will be 5,7-6,2% in 2021. Taking into account the ongoing monetary policy, annual inflation will decrease to 4,0–4,5% in 2022 and will remain close to 4% in the future.
