SBI Brings Down The Mallet On Car Loan Defaulters
In a move to reduce NPAs on its car loan portfolio, SBI recently announced measures to seize and auction defaulters’ cars. This has come off the back of a 1% increase in bad auto loans over the period June FY14 to June FY15.
SBI’s focus on its retail loan portfolio is a bid to ride over the recent slump in corporate credit due to an economic downturn over the past years.
Hoping to profit by bucking the trend of increased car loans over the last year, SBI aims to make most of its recoveries from its ‘self-employed’-borrowers segment whose repayment abilities have also been adversely affected in line with the economic slowdown.
No longer will auto-loan customers be able to win their way back into SBI’s favour by making up for pending installments. Cars will now be seized and auctioned off if the entire loan amount is not repaid within 7 days of receiving the first-default notice.
To drive the point home, so to speak, SBI has already identified 500 cars for seizure in Hyderabad alone. With many more on the anvil, it is time for auto-loan customers to sit up and take notice before they find themselves under SBI’s radar, or worse still, its auction mallet.
