BB extends double duration for loan restructuring of FIs

Bangladesh Bank has extended 50 percent time the loan restructuring duration for clients of financial institutions.

From now all customers of financial institutions will get double duration for debt restructuring as of before.

A circular in this regard is issued by the Financial Institutions and Markets Department of Bangladesh Bank on Sunday.

The circular sent to the CEOs of all financial institutions operating in the country states that in order for financial institutions to analyze the financial viability of the client and come to a decision of restructuring at their own judgment, the term extension of loan or lease facility should be extended 50 per cent of existing remaining term. Earlier this period was 25 percent loan term.

 According to the concerned, the financial institutions which used to have two years to restructure a loan for a period of 8years, will now have four years to restructure the same loan.
