Lines of Credit

Entering and conquering new vistas of growth

From our inception we have been extending Lines of Credit (LOC) to enable Indian exporters to enter new geographies or expand their business in existing export markets without any payment risk from overseas importers. We put special emphasis on extending LOC as an effective market entry tool as well as a means of market diversification for Indian exporters.

We extend LOCs to overseas financial institutions, regional development banks, sovereign governments and other entities overseas, to enable buyers in those countries to import developmental and infrastructure projects, equipments, goods and services from India, on deferred credit terms. We extend LOCs on our own and also at the behest and with the support of Government of India.

Government Of India Supported LOCs

banner

In 2003-04, The Government of India (GOI) formulated the Indian Development Initiative (IDI), now known as Indian Development and Economic Assistance Scheme (IDEAS) with the objective of sharing India's development experience through:

  1. capacity building and skills transfer,
  2. trade, and
  3. infrastructure development,

by extending concessional LOCs routed through Exim Bank, to developing partner countries, towards creating socio-economic benefits in the partner country.

The Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) has now set up the Development Partnership Administration (DPA) Division to deal with India's development assistance programmes abroad, including LOCs routed through Exim Bank. These LOCs are increasingly being extended to partner countries for large-scale and complex projects (project exports from India).

Both, bilateral and multilateral assistance, typically follow a sequence of standard procedures:

  1. project identification and preparation,
  2. review and approval of the project proposal,
  3. offer of the loan, acceptance and execution of loan agreement,
  4. project implementation, monitoring and supervision, and
  5. socio-economic impact assessment after project completion

Lessons learned from the impact assessment / evaluation act as a feedback to the preparation, review and implementation of future projects. This process forms the 'project cycle'.

Project Lifecycle

Requirement as to import of goods and services from India

  • These loans are for project exports and the import of goods and services from India.

  • Goods and services (including consultancy services) for minimum 75% value of the contracts covered under these loans must be sourced from India. (A relaxation of 10% may be considered on a case-to-case basis)

  • LOCs may finance upto 100% value of contract on FOB/CFR/CIF/CIP basis.

  • Soft loans under the scheme shall be free from all kinds of taxes and duties of any nature whatsoever levied in the recipient country (including all corporate/personal/value added taxes, import/custom duties, special levies and social security contributions) for temporary employees deputed by Indian exporters in relation to the project execution in the recipient countries.

To promote Indian projects, products and services we have been extending LOCs to various countries. Our own LOCs are offered to economically strong and developing countries. We finance all items eligible for being exported under the "Foreign Trade Policy" of the Indian Government. Our LOCs are typically linked to LIBOR rates and carry a tenor up to seven years.
