Measures were announced after the Finance Ministry's discussions with the banks.

  • Benefits of all repo rate cuts made by the Reserve Bank of India will be passed on into the MCLR by banks. MCLR is the rate below which a bank does not lend to the customers. With repo rate cuts, MCLR will also fall.
  • Public Sector Banks will ensure that loan documents are returned to customers within 15 days of the closure of a loan.
  • Banks will allow loan application tracking facility to the customers.
  • NFBCs will be able to use Aadhaar-authenticated KYCs (know-your-customer) to simplify the taking up of credit.
  • An additional Rs 20,000 crore will be provided to the housing finance companies from the National Housing Bank.

FM Sitharaman said that there is a fall in global consumption and economic growth, with global GDP projected at 3.2 percent and India's growth has been better than that of China or the US.
