Also the ticket size of these SFBs is very low because of their MFI nature. RBI has a cap on the MFI loans, which is 1.25 Lakhs. That too over a course of borrowing cycles. Mostly, the MFI loans have a ticket size of Rs. 30,000.

Even in the previous post you had classified some of the NBFCs like MFIs as non systemically important but that depends on the size of the NBFC right? Any NBFC with assets > 500 Cr will become Systemically Important by default. That is my understanding. Please correct me if I am wrong.

Good one again. Just one observation. AU was a NBFC-AFC and not NBFC-MFI.

NBFCs are categorized as:

a) in terms of the type of liabilities into Deposit and Non-Deposit accepting NBFCs

b) non deposit taking NBFCs by their size into systemically important (> 500 Cr) and other non-deposit holding companies (NBFC-NDSI and NBFC-ND) and

c) by the kind of activity they conduct. Within this broad categorization the different types of NBFCs are as follows:

1 - Asset Finance Company (AFC)

2 - Investment Company (IC)

3 - Loan Company (LC)

4 - Infrastructure Finance Company (IFC)

5 - Systemically Important Core Investment Company (CIC-ND-SI)

6 - Infrastructure Debt Fund

7 - MFI

8 - Factors

9 - Mortgage Guarantee Companies (MGC)

10 - NBFC- Non-Operative Financial Holding Company (NOFHC)

11 - HFC

12 - AA

13 - P2P
