Financial Performance of Non Banking Finance Companies in India
Introduction: The financial system comprises of financial institutions, financial instruments and financial markets that provide an effective payment and credit system and thereby facilitate channelising of funds from savers to the investors of the economy. In India considerable growth has taken place in the Non-banking financial sector in last two decades. Over a period of time they are successful in rendering a wide range of services. Initially intended to cater to the needs of savers and investors, NBFCs later on developed into institutions that can provide services similar to banks. In India several factors have contributed to the growth of NBFCs.
Objectives of the Study: The classification of NBFCs have been changed over a period of time. The functioning of different categories of NBFCs are not governed by the homogeneous factors. Therefore financial implication can differ for different group of companies. The financial performance of 10 leasing companies has been examined by Seem Saggar at disaggragate level and compared with other groups of NBFCs for a period of 1985-90. Moreover, the performance of all NBFCs taken together in terms of cost of debt, operating margin, net profit margin, return on net worth, asset turn over ratio etc. The study by Seema Saggar does not reflect the overall performance of NBFCs as it is based on selected 10 companies.
