ECONOMICTIMES.COM | Oct 30, 2013, 12.38PM IST | Morgan Stanley Report
NEW DELHI: Indian equity markets have seen some sharp swings in the past 20 years, taking Sensex from a little over 2000 levels in 1993 to 21,000 now.
Here’s a chart compiled by Morgan Stanley showing the ups and downs in Sensex over the last 20 years:
On the macro front, India’s GDP has also risen from $260 billion to $1,842 billion; average annual real growth of 6.9 per cent and the country’s equity market capitalization has increased from $70 billion to $940 bn, a 17 per cent CAGR, Morgan Stanley said in a September report.
The MSCI India index has also outperformed the MSCI Emerging Market index by 28 percentage points. These statistics mask the fact that these 20 years have been split into four distinct boom and bust cycles, says the global investment bank.
Over the period of time, India has been able to improve its balance sheet which led to strong fiscal and monetary policy responses to avoid the worst of the credit crisis.
However, increased stimulus measures were not justified, as loose fiscal and monetary policies led to a challenging macro environment.
In the past 20 years, growth increased, inflation stabilized, and the productivity dynamic improved with a rise in investment to GDP.
The improvement in macros was accompanied by benign global conditions marked by an increase in capital flows, which helped keep rates low, fund the current account deficit, and accrue FX reserves.
Earnings grew an annual average 24 per cent while ROE hit record levels and averaged over 20%. Indian equities re-rated significantly to trade at an average premium of 30% to emerging market equities.
The Indian equity market return CAGR was 44 per cent, beating emerging markets in US$ terms by nearly 90 percentage points, with industrials the best performing sector.
Average earnings growth declined to just 6 per cent while, ROE or return on equity went back to the lows of the late-90s. However, India’s PE premium held up, largely because of strong and consistent performance by the index heavyweights.
The market has been largely flat in this period, underperforming the emerging world by nearly 30 percentage points. Consumer staples proved to be the best performing sector as market participants rushed for quality stocks in a challenging macro and market environment.
Despite poor market performance, foreign investors (FIIs) have kept their faith in Indian equities and bought an impressive US$75 bn of stock in last five-year period, yet the rupee has lost 60 per cent of its value versus the US$ in this period.
However, going forward, the near-term outlook looks challenging for macro conditions and the market, yet the global investment bank believes that the confluence of demographics, productivity, and globalization will support higher growth in the medium to long term.
Morgan Stanley expects India to grow around 7 per cent on average over the next 10 years, with investment, exports, and consumption contributing to the growth.
India currently has the second-highest potential growth rate among emerging market and developed market economies, based on our macro team’s estimates.

An extract from the CIBIL website:
What do you do when you spot a mistake on your credit report?
Typically, you check your credit report when your loan gets rejected and the loan provider tells you it’s because of some information on your credit report. But there is no need to panic! Mistakes on a credit report can be easily corrected with the CIBIL’s help. All you need to do is:
a) Purchase your CIBIL credit report
b) Identify the erroneous information
c) Provide name, address, date of birth, an Control Number and the nature of the error on the credit bureau’s website. This is known as a ‘Dispute Request‘ in credit bureau parlance.
The Control Number is a unique 9-digit number found on the top right hand side of your CIBIL Credit Information Report and is generated every time a credit report is generated. It is very important to provide this number to the bureau, as it helps identify the CIBIL credit report on which you would like to ‘dispute’ information.
What kind of errors can occur in the CIBIL credit report?
Your Credit Information Report (credit report) is an important factor in the loan application process. Hence, mistakes on your credit report can result in reduced chances of a loan approval. It is very important for every credit active individual to understand the various types of common mistakes that can occur in their Credit Report.
• Inaccurate Current Balance or Amount Overdue When you have purchased your CIBIL credit report you may notice that your Current Balance or Amount Overdue may not be updated for your most recent payment. This will usually be the case if you have purchased your CIBIL credit report within 45 days of making a payment. Loan providers report information to CIBIL on a monthly basis, which would mean that the latest payment will not reflect on your CIBIL credit report.
An inaccurate Current Balance (especially on the high side) implies that you have more debt than you actually do while an “Amount Overdue” indicates that you are unable to service your existing loan obligations. Both are viewed negatively by loan providers and may affect the chances of getting your loan application approved.
• Incorrect Personal Details Credit information is submitted to CIBIL by various loan providers. Each loan provider submits your credit account along with your personal information such as name, address, date of birth, PAN Card Number and so on. CIBIL then uses the personal information to collate these details into a single credit report which provides your complete credit profile.
Ensure that you have provided accurate and updated details to your loan provider at the time of your loan application. In addition, every time your personal details change or are updated, you should inform your loan provider so that it is possible for it to make the necessary changes to its database.
• Ownership If you believe that either some of the personal details or one or more accounts on your credit report do not belong to you, you should write to the credit bureau. The credit bureau will look into the matter and help you update the information if required.
Overall, the best solution is to check your CIBIL credit report before you apply for a loan so that you know your loan provider is evaluating your loan application based on accurate data.
What does CIBIL do once I raise a Dispute Request?
Once you have raised a Dispute Request, the CIBIL checks whether all the requisite details have been provided. The request is then routed to the Dispute Resolution Department for Analysis. This is because one type of dispute request can be resolved by CIBIL itself. If the credit bureau is unable to resolve the request, it is routed to the relevant loan provider. Once the loan provider confirms that there is an error it will provide CIBIL with corrected data. CIBIL then updates the data and informs you as appropriate. Always remember, it is the duty of CIBIL to help you resolve your request.
Please remember that CIBIL does not make changes to any information on its own. It is only a custodian of information received from credit institutions. CIBIL is permitted to make changes to your credit information only when it is confirmed by the relevant loan provider(s).
Why doesn’t CIBIL verify the information with consumers before updating the report?
CIBIL has the information of millions of individuals. It’s virtually impossible to verify the information of each individual. The ‘Dispute Process’ is provided to the consumer to help correct any discrepancies that may arise in their credit report exactly for this reason. Hence, it is recommended to review your credit report prior to submitting a loan application just to be sure that there are no errors on your credit report which may hamper your loan approval.
How do I get the results of my dispute request?
You will receive an email notification informing you of the results of the dispute request.
Will I get an updated copy of my credit report when my dispute is resolved?
If you wish to have the updated CIBIL credit report, you can purchase it by clicking on the following link – Access your CIBIL Credit Report page.
How long does it take to respond on a dispute request?
Dispute resolution takes approximately 30 days, subject to members responding to our dispute resolution raised.
What if I am not satisfied with the results of my dispute request?
You can initiate a dispute request again and we will re-verify it with the relevant loan providers. Alternatively, you can contact the loan providers yourself.
I am an authorized user, why is this account reflecting on my report? I am not liable to make payments on the account, it should not reflect on my report?
CIBIL will continue to report all information as submitted by the Credit Institutions. An authorized user means that you have been issued an “add-on” card by the credit card’s primary owner. It is important to note that the primary card holder is responsible for payments on charges incurred on both the primary and add-on credit cards issued. If the primary card holder defaults on any payments, this will be reflected as a default on the Credit Information Reports of both primary and add-on card holders.
My account is closed, why is it still on my report?
As per the Credit Information Companies (Regulation) Act, 2005 governing Credit Information Companies, all accounts irrespective of their status (both Good Standing and Delinquent accounts) have to be maintained for a minimum period of 7 years from the date the account was last reported.

CIBIL Consumer Credit Information Report (CIR) is used in Banks for the purpose of ascertaining the loan applicant’s credit discipline. With a view to arm borrowers with an insight, we shall see how Banks treat or interpret CIBIL reports particularly in granting Home Loans. To be able to understand the explanation below we suggest you obtain your own CIBIL Report by clicking here. Following are the guidelines normally adhered to by Banks:
CIBIL Consumer Credit Information Report (CIR)
(i) CIR reports are used for assessment of the borrower’s past payment behavior and current capability to service the loan.
(ii) Among other things CIR contains repayment history of upto 36 months in each loan/ credit facility availed by the borrower from the CIBIL member institutions.
CIBIL TransUnion Score(s):
Lets consider Mr. Shah a retired public servant and currently a consultant with a private organisation was co-applicant on a home loan application. Mr. Shah had been against loans all his working years though he just had one credit card which he sparingly used only for emergency. CIR had score of 578.
(i) Score predicts the likelihood of 91+ days delinquency on one or more loans in the next twelve months. It is between 300 and 900, the higher the score, lower is the risk profile of the individual. Scores higher than 700 indicate low risk and score less than 520 indicates high risk.
(ii) Individuals who do not have any loan record in CIBIL database are assigned a default score -1 whereas a score range of 1 to 5 is assigned to the individuals with less than 6 months of credit history. The higher the score lower is the risk profile of the individual.
(iii) Though CIBL TransUnion Credit scores are presently not used for the purpose of assessment of loan application in most Banks, they may be used by credit officers for the purpose of taking credit decisions in borderline cases. Credit decisions in case of applicants with score less that 520 and score 1 and 2 (for those who have credit history less than 6 months) may be taken with due caution and recording reasons thereof.
Mr.Shah’s CIBIL report was dealt with caution. Credit officers sought explanation for low score.
CIBIL CIR Features:
There is field named ‘STATUS’ in CIR. “Blank” status field indicates that the outstanding balance in the account has not been written-off. If the ‘STATUS’ is not blank, it shows the status of the stressed assets when amount is overdue is written-off by the bank and/or suit is filed.
Loan applications of the borrowers whose ‘Account Status’ is not “Blank” is handled as under:
If the Account Status for a secured loan/unsecured loan/credit card is
(I) Suit Filed,
(II) Willful default,
(III) Suit Filed (willful default),
(IV) Suit filed & written-off,
(V) Willful default & written-off or
(VI) Suit filed (willful default) and written-off,
the applicant’s proposal may be rejected.
Fortunately Mr. Shah’s report did not fall in the above category of Suit Filed / Willful Default.
Decisions regarding other Account Status may be taken as under:
|Settled post write-off =>||Accept if single instance. Else deviation may be approved as per delegation matrix||Reject|
|Written off =>||Deviation may be approved as per delegation matrix||Reject|
|Restructured =>||Deviation may be approved as per delegation matrix||Deviation may be approved as per delegation matrix: (a) the repayment is rescheduled and the performance is since satisfactory. (b) In cases where loans have been restructured under notifications issued by the State/Central Govt. under special circumstances.|
Delegation Matrix is an authority matrix or framework created by senior management of Banks entrusting levels of management/ function with certain discretionary powers to grant approvals in cases of deviation from the norm.
A satisfactory performance of a secured loan after an incident of write-off may be considered a positive sign.
Days Past Due (DPD) / Asset Classification (upto 36 months):
Days Past Due (DPD) means the number of days lapsed after due date of making payment of bill amount/EMI. This field in the CIR shows repayment history in the borrower’s account. Latest date of reporting by the member institution/bank appears on the extreme left and thereafter the data is reported in descending order of dates, as such data in this field is to be read from left to right as shown below:
|180||XXX||SUB||Number of DPD / Asset Classification|
|08-07||07-07||06-07||Reporting date (mm-yy)|
Even if ‘Status’ of the account is “blank”, for the purpose of loan assessment in the Bank, the account will be classified as “an account in default” if one or more of the following conditions :
(i) Present DPD is more than 30 days
(ii) DPD 60 days or more on more than one occasion during last 12 months,
(iii) Asset classification as ‘SUB” (Substandard), “DBT (Doubtful), “LSS” (Loss), or “SMA” (Special Mention Account).
Overdues seen in the CIBIL Report would be dealt with as below:
Mr. Shah’s CIBIL Report showed written-off & overdues amount of Rs.931/- & Rs.235/- respectively on one additional credit card, which is more than 08 years old (03/12/2005). He claimed he never used any credit card in his lifetime & has no record of such account appearing in CIBIL Report.
|One overdue monthly payment in 24M||Allowed if DPD not exceeded 30days in last 6M|
|Single credit card default more than 5yrs old irrespective of amount||Allowed if no other instance of overdues & credit discipline is demonstrated in other loans|
|Overdue upto Rs.10000/-||Deviation may be approved as per delegation matrix provided approving authority is satisfied with borrower’s claims of wrong billing if any & that borrowers has not willfully defaulted.|
|Overdue above Rs.10000/-||Deviation may be approved as by senior management based on justifications on record.|
In Mr. Shah’s case, the sourcing team obtained the approval of the Credit Manager as per the internal Delegation Matrix of the Bank based on justification given by him in writing.
CIBIL report provides information real time. Therefore “Enquiries” section of the report comes handy for ascertaining the number of lenders with whom the borrower is talking about different credit facilities. Extra precaution may be exercised in cases where more than 2 enquiries of the same product and same amount are observed within a space of last 1 month. In such cases one more report may be pulled out prior to disbursement and status of those enquiries may be ascertained from the borrower.
So far Banks have been relying on services of CIBIL to access credit history of the borrowers. Recently RBI has granted Certificate of Registration to 3 other Credit Information Companies (CIC) namely:
1.Equifax Credit Information Services Pvt. Ltd. (ECISPL)
2.Experian Credit Information Company of India Ltd. (ECICIPL)
3.Highmark Credit Information Services Pvt. Ltd. (HMCISPL)
Most Banks have subscribed to the services of all four CIC’s.
To ensure consistency and authenticity of the credit information from reports from multiple credit bureaus it is advisable and to properly use it as a risk mitigating tool, credit officers may use the matrix as under (proposed in most Banks):
|Home loans upto Rs.10lacs||Report from one credit bureau.|
|Home loans above Rs.10lacs||Report from two credit bureau.|
However to arrive at credit decisions, Banks continue to rely on services of CIBIL untill the others are integrated into Bank systems.
For multiple deviations in single proposal, the case has to be recommended and presented to Corporate Office (CO)/ Senior Management for approval from the Head of sourcing team. Cases with only those deviations that are beyond the discretionary powers of the Zonal/Regional/Circle authorities, may reach CO level.

Registration fee and Applicable Penalty :
The registration fee is a fee for the service provided by the sub-registrar’s office, of recording and storing the document for years together and in the proper condition. If one does not pay registration fees, he will not be able to register the document and will be deprived of these services but there is as such no penalty for non-payment as is the case of stamp duty. So whenever a person goes for registration he is charged the same registration fees as is chargeable on his document on the date of registration and no interest etc. is charged. However one must keep in mind that when one goes for registration after four months and before eight months of execution of document he is charged a penalty which could be up to 10 times of registration fees. This is the penalty for delay in presenting the document before the registrar and is not a penalty for non-payment. Normally this penalty is charged at the rate of 2.5 times of the registration fees per month for delay beyond the permissible 4 months.
The Registration fees is one per cent of the market value or Rs.30,000, whichever is less in case of documents pertaining to sale or conveyance. This is applicable from 01-04-2003 to date.
