Govt, TransUnion CIBIL launch MSME Credit Health Index

Published on :

New Delhi, Nov 2 (IANS) In order to provide a reliable measure and benchmark of the growth and strength of the MSME sector in India, TransUnion CIBIL in partnership with the Ministry of Statistics & Programme Implementation (MoSPI) has launched the MSME Credit Health Index.

The MSME Credit Health Index will provide the government, policy makers, lenders and MSME market participants, a unique and reliable numeric indicator for measuring and benchmarking the health of the MSME sector. This measurement model, based on comprehensive data and intensive analytics is set to facilitate better MSME credit risk management, formulation of strategies and policies to support the revival and resurgence of the MSME sector and the economy.

The MSME Credit Health Index is built using credit data submitted by lending institutions to TransUnion CIBIL. The index measures the credit health of India’s MSME industry on two parameters: Growth and Strength.

Both the growth and strength indices follow the principle of higher the better – i.e. an increasing Growth Index indicates improvement in credit growth; and an increasing Strength Index implies better asset quality and therefore denotes an improvement in the structural strength of the sector.

Speaking at the launch of this index, Kshatrapati Shivaji, Secretary, Ministry of Statistics & Programme Implementation (MoSPI) said, “The MSME sector comprises of over six crore enterprises, contributes nearly 29% of India’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and provides employment to over 11 crore workers. Being a vital engine for growth, it is important to continuously monitor and measure the strength, growth and progress of the MSMEs, so that policies can be aligned and timely interventions taken. MoSPI is happy to partner with TransUnion CIBIL to introduce the MSME Credit Health Index as a new and alternate data source for use in policy making for the MSME sector.”

The first version of the MSME Credit Health Index is based on data from March 2018 to June 2020.

“The objective of the Index is to support MSMEs, lenders and policy makers with an efficient tool to monitor and benchmark the movement in the micro-ecosystems of the MSME sector. The ongoing monitoring of the index will provide insights for aligning strategies and policies towards efficient implementation of funds and resources for sustained development of the MSME sector and thereby the socio-economic growth,” MD and CEO of TransUnion CIBIL Rajesh Kumar said.

Overall analysis of the Growth Index reflects muted growth in June 2020 owing to limited credit activity consequent to the containment measures implemented by the Government to curb the spread of COVID-19 pandemic.
