Priority Sector Lending
Priority Sector Lending is decided as per RBI guidelines. Under it, RBI mandates banks to lend certain amount from their funds to specified sectors such as agriculture; Micro, Small & Medium Enterprises (MSMEs); education, export credit, renewable energy, housing and social infrastructure. All scheduled commercial banks and foreign banks are mandated to keep 40% of their Adjusted Net Bank Credit (ANDC) to lend these sectors. Regional rural banks, co-operative banks and small finance banks can allocate 75% of ANDC. Lending is facilitated to ensure that, adequate institutional credit reaches vulnerable sectors of economy.
