Export Credit - Interest Rates

IECD.No. 6 /04.02.01/99-2000

October 29, 1999

The Chairmen/Chief Executives of
all commercial banks

Dear Sir,

Export Credit - Interest Rates

Please refer to our Circular IECD.No.26/04.02.01/97-98 dated December 17, 1997 read with circular IECD No.32/04.02.01/97-98 dated December 31, 1997 in terms of which the higher rate of interest of 20 per cent per annum (minimum) was prescribed for "Export Credit Not Otherwise Specified(ECNOS)" at post-shipment stage. It has now been decided (c.f. para 36(iv)of the statement on "Mid-Term Review of Monetary and Credit Policy for the year 1999-2000 enclosed to Governor's letter No.MPD.BC/190/07.01.279/99-2000 dated October 29, 1999) to withdraw this stipulation and give freedom to banks to decide the rate of interest on their own. Accordingly, effective from October 29, 1999 banks will have the freedom to decide the appropriate rate of interest in respect of the category of "Export Credit Not Otherwise Specified" at post-shipment stage. However, the present procedure for ensuring that there is no deliberate attempt to delay repatriation of export receipts will remain in force .The revised rate is indicated in the Appendix to the Annexure.

2. Consequently, the rate of interest applicable in respect of the category of "Export Credit Not Otherwise Specified" indicated against item No.3(b) of Annexure to our Circular IECD.No.2/04.02.01/1999-2000 dated August 16, 1999 has also been freed.

3. The revision in the rate of interest as above with effect from October 29, 1999, will be applicable not only for fresh advances but also to the existing advances for the remaining period.

4. A copy of the Directive DBOD.No.BC/105/13.07.01/99 dated October 29, 1999 containing the changes made in the interest rate on rupee export credit as indicated above, is enclosed.

5. In view of the above the words "20.00 (minimum)" stated at item 4(b) of Annexure II to Paragraph 13A-III(5)(1) in the Manual of Instructions issued by RBI (DBOD, DBS and IECD ) may please be corrected to read as "free".

Yours faithfully,
