Additionally, the external commercial borrowings (ECBs) registrations in financial services declined to USD 0.16bn, (22.7% of total ECBs registrations) in April 2020 as compared to USD 1.3bn (47.1% of total ECBs registration) in April 2019 given the challenging circumstances in the global market. NBFCs have received liquidity headroom due to the announcement of the Special Liquidity facility and modification of the partial guarantee scheme," CARE Ratings has stated in its report.
