Digital Lending Segmentation

Digital lending in India is expected to become a $1.3 Tn market opportunity by 2030. This high-potential ecosystem can be segmented into the following five categories:

With Banks and NBFCs forming the backbone of the lending sector, these are traditionally heavily regulated by the Reserve Bank of India [RBI] due to the sheer volume of capital being held by these institutions.

The Need For a Compliant

Digital Lending Solution

The new digital lending guidelines announced by RBI, aimed at curbing rising malpractices in the digital lending ecosystem, have made it mandatory that loan disbursals and repayments happen directly between the accounts of regulated lenders (NBFCs or Banks) and borrowers. To quote the guideline, “All digital loans must be disbursed and repaid through bank accounts of regulated entities only, without pass-through of loan service providers (LSPs) or other third parties.” With the question of compliancy looming large on any third party or fintech solution, the need to clarify the scope and responsibilities across the lending lifecycle is now paramount. This along with the promise of transparency in terms technology, and disclosures related to data gathering will be the key drivers of the regulated payment infrastructure in this new lending ecosystem.

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, Ne5 is fully compliant with the new RBI lending guidelines.

The guidelines, aimed at curbing rising malpractices in the digital lending ecosystem, follow the recommendations of a working group for digital lending, whose report was made public in November 2021. “The concerns primarily relate to the unbridled engagement of third parties, mis-selling, breach of data privacy, unfair business conduct, charging of exorbitant interest rates, and unethical recovery practices,” the RBI said in the final guidelines.

The effective date from which the guidelines are applicable is given below:

  • New Loans: The guidelines were applicable on an immediate basis (i.e. from 2 September 2022) to the existing customers availing fresh loans and to new customers getting onboarded.
  • Existing Loans: Regulated Entities would be given time till 30 November 2022 to put in place adequate systems and processes to ensure that existing digital loans comply with the guidelines
