Fund diversion: Ticking time-bomb for banks


“In the event that the short term loans in the nature of working capital or overdraft are utilised by the borrowers to fund their capital expansion plans, the borrowers would be in a difficult situation to pay off such short term loans, as such amounts get invested for long term purposes, where cash inflows are expected at a much later date. Such situations generally put banks into a very difficult situation and result into financial stress”.
