Easebuzz’s Digital Lending suite enables NBFCs and Fintech’s to manage disbursement and collections solution on its platform
According to the new RBI guidelines, lending merchants have to rethink how they transfer funds to their borrowers.
In the past, NBFCs worked with Fintech partners to make disbursements and collections more accessible. Fintech partners received loans from NBFCs through either a current or a virtual account powered by a PSP (Payment Service Provider). Following the lender’s underwriting, the funds are used for disbursement as agreed between the parties.
The lender received the payment through payment gateways, and settlement funds were transferred to borrowers through current or virtual accounts.
The new digital lending guidelines published by RBI on 2nd Sep 2022 provide that loan disbursals and repayments must take place directly between the NBFC’s account and the borrower’s account – as represented by the “New-Flow” in the image below.
With the RBI guidelines on digital lending, not only will customer rights be protected, but also a more competitive atmosphere for digital lenders in India. The guidelines will encourage a culture of innovation and competitiveness among digital lenders.
To comply with these guidelines, NBFCs and Fintech now have to consider the following:
- Making direct money transfers scalable and regulated.
- The Fintech / NBFC partnership process
- As Fintech’s will no longer be responsible for managing these financial operations at scale, the NBFCs will manage these operations.
