According to the guidelines, banks and financial institutions will put the difference between interest and simple interest over interest during the deferment period in the loan account of eligible borrowers. This is for all eligible lenders, who have taken advantage of the exemption given by the RBI for loan waiver in full or in part under the scheme announced on March 27, 2020. Financial institutions will claim the central government for the payment of the money by putting it in the account of the concerned borrower. According to sources, the implementation of this scheme will cost the government exchequer 6,500 crore rupees.

In fact, due to the Corona crisis, many people were not in a position to repay the loan EMI. In view of this, on the RBI’s order, the banks were given an extension of the first three months for not paying EMI and later it was increased to 6 months. But the biggest problem was the extra charge that the Moratorium could replace. The relief given by the Center means that people who are taking benefit of loan moratorium will no longer have to pay extra money on interest.
