Features and Benefits
The Micro and Small Enterprise (MSE) sector contributes significantly to
manufacturing output, employment and exports of the country. MSE sector, in terms of value
contributes for 45% of the manufacturing output and 40% of total exports of the country.
Keeping in view the regulatory requirements, Axis Bank has initiated a focused approach to
ensure flow of credit to the MSE sector. Our Bank follows the broad guidelines issued under the
Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises Development (MSMED) Act, 2006. Herein below, we furnish
the Bank’s Policy on MSEs.
MSEs are broadly classified into two classes:
Service Enterprises shall include small road and water transport operators, small businesses,
professional and self employed persons, retail traders and all other service enterprises.
40% of the total advances to Small Enterprises sector should go to Micro (manufacturing)
enterprises having investment in plant and machinery (original cost) upto Rs 10 lacs and
Micro (service) Enterprises having investment in equipment upto Rs 4 lacs.
20 % of the total advances to small enterprises sector should go to Micro (manufacturing)
enterprises with investment in plant and machinery above Rs 10 lacs and upto Rs 25 lacs,
micro (service) enterprises with investment in equipment above Rs 4 lacs and upto Rs 10 lacs.
Thus 60 % of the Small Enterprises advances should go to the Micro Enterprises.
The Bank provides finance to the MSE
sector in India through 41 dedicated Centres/Cells well spread out throughout the country.
We have a strong professional team placed at these Centres to evaluate the borrowers’
needs and provide customized solutions.
We have created the following products exclusively for the MSE
sector. These are template products, which follow a simple scorecard model for Rating,
simple appraisal process, decentralized sanctioning powers, quick Turnaround Time (TAT)
and offers wide range of facilities that include working capital, term loans & non fund based
facilities. These are generally secured by collateral security. The Bank also provides traditional
credit facilities like Cash credit/overdraft, Loan against Deposits/property, Bill discounting,
Non fund based credit facilities, Export credit etc. to MSE borrowers through a few other
templated products, as well as non-templated products.
Axis Bank already has a simplified templated Zero
Collateral Loans (ZCL) product to sanction working capital & Term Loan facilities guaranteed
by CGTMSE upto Rs. 1.00 Cr. to MSEs under this scheme. We are regularly sensitizing branch
staff / field staff regarding Zero Collateral Loan product and on the CGTMSE scheme
available with CGS cover upto 75% through workshops, trainings, e-mailers etc.
The application form for credit facilities can be downloaded
from our Bank’s website and is also available free of cost with our SME Centres.
With a view to having a consistent and transparent credit
selection process, the following criteria is followed by the Bank
We monitor movement of loan applications centrally through
Loan Origination Software (LOS). Bank is also in the process of developing system for linkage
of LOS to web site for online tracking of the applications. Loan Origination Software
captures reasons for rejections, in case of rejection of application.
The rating tool captures the Financial/ Business parameters for any enterprise
between a scale of SME 1 and SME 8. The Credit/ Business risk of the firm is captured in the
rating and the pricing is based on the same. Meticulous KYC norms are followed by the Bank.
As part of the due diligence process, we check the CIBIL score of the borrowers, check
RBI/ECGC defaulters list etc.
The appraisal process involves obtaining KYC of the applicant,
evaluating the profile of the prospect, business viability, past credit history, future potential,
cash flows, unit visit, end use etc. All applications for credit limit / enhancement in existing
credit limit upto Rs 5.00 lacs will be disposed off within two weeks and for credit limits above
Rs 5.00 lacs upto Rs 25.00 lacs within four weeks from the date of receipt, provided the
application is complete in all respects.
Sanctions of credit limits to MSEs are carried out through a committee
based approach. The sanctions are decentralized and are delegated at the SME Centres to
ensure speedy turnaround time
The credit facilities would be secured by primary and collateral security wherever
applicable and as per the Credit Policy of the Bank from time to time. All assets given to the
Bank as security should be fully insured in the Bank’s favour. No collateral security will be
taken for credit limits upto Rs 10.00 lacs or upto limits specified by RBI from time to time.
The Bank will disburse all sanctioned loans to MSEs within 2 working days after
compliance with all the terms and conditions of sanction. A dedicated credit operations
team at the branches ensures prompt disbursement of the facilities.
Monitoring of the account would be as per the Policy of the Bank from time to
time. These include periodical visits, stock verifications, audits etc. The Bank also has a
mechanism in place for identifying quick mortality through a EWS (Early warning System) Tool
by which delinquent accounts are identified and classified into Exit/Watch List categories
and accordingly different strategies are adopted for bringing these accounts back to
normal category. Apart from this the Bank’s Internal Audit Department conduct periodical
audits for monitoring the portfolio.

expansion projects. Greenfield project would refer to the following –

Rating b) Availability of Security/ Guarantee cover. c) PSL segment.
Restructuring will be done strictly on merits and as per RBI
guidelines. Bank has a Board approved policy on restructuring of borrowal accounts,
including loans to MSEs. The units identified are monitored closely by Relationship Managers
dealing with these accounts in order to understand reasons for the stress and to understand
the feasibility of additional funding to the customer. The RBI guidelines on Rehabilitation of
Sick Micro & Small Enterprises have been communicated to all our officers in order to
reiterate the need to identify potentially sick accounts at an early stage in order to take
Bank’s Corporate Banking Operations (CBO) Dept. supervises the credit
operations in respect of MSE business segment. These operations are regulated by a
standardized and highly skilled pool of resources. The operations are carried out through 8
Corporate Banking Branches (CBBs), 58 Mini Credit Management Centres (MCMCs) and 2

Annual targets are allotted to SME centres which are broken further into
month-wise targets. The achievement of the targets is monitored on a regular basis by the
officials in the Centres, the Geography and the Corporate Office. Separate targets are
given for Micro, Priority Sector Loans etc.
For foreign currency loans, RBI guidelines issued from time to time
will be applicable. All foreign currency loans / imports / Buyers credit arranged shall be
hedged by way of suitable forward contracts. The percentage of hedge cover would
depend on the internal rating of the enterprise. However, where a natural hedge exists,
hedging is not necessary to that extent.
Our Banks does sanction loans/OD against FDs by marking
lien on the deposit. The procedure for sanction is very simple and the same can be availed
at the Axis Bank branches. The delegation of sanction will be as applicable to the authority
granted from time to time by the Bank.

who satisfy the internal guidelines to meet contingencies, meet temporary cash flow
mismatches, statutory payments etc.

regards to collection of dues & repossession of security by fostering borrower confidence &
long term relationship. Our policy ensures that there is no coercive practice followed while
collecting the dues.

customer complaints at various levels. Discussions are held with customers and formal replies
are given in such cases. In addition, an escalation matrix upto the level of Business Head at
Central Office has been shared with Branches to refer any queries/ complaints to the
appropriate officers. We also have an online grievance recording system whereby any MSE
borrower availing facilities can lodge his complaint on the Bank’s website. Contact details of
the concerned officials (postal address, telephone number and e-mail) are given and any
complaint received is dealt with at the earliest.
