In its Circular dated 15/11/2011, RBI had increased the all-in-cost ceiling for Buyers Credit from 6 Month L+ 200 bps to 6 Month L + 350 bps subject to condition that is only upto 31/03/2012 and after subject to review there after.
As of yesterday evening, there is no fresh circular from RBI on Trade Credit. If this situation remains, effective from 01/04/2012
- Maximum Cap will come down to 6 Month Libor + 200 bps
- Internationally price for < $100000 is already above 6 Month Libor + 200 bps. Thus, for SME it will get difficult to arrange funds.
