How to Apply For Loan EMI Moratorium during Covid-19 Lockdown?

Covid-19 and the subsequent lockdown have affected industries and which has led to a near-complete stop in all economic activity. This has, in turn, shrunk the wallet of the common people and has deeply affected their financial stability. To stand by the citizens in this time of need, the RBI has announced a moratorium facility to provide customers with a breather for a period of three months between Mar 01- May 31, 2020. On May 22, 2020 the RBI further extended the facility for an additional 3 months until Aug 31, 2020. At SMFG India Credit, we are extending this facility* to all eligible customers who would like to defer their EMI payments.

However, do note that to avail the moratorium, applicants will need to satisfy certain eligibility criteria.

What is the eligibility criteria for applying for a moratorium?

  • You must be an existing customer having an ongoing loan as on March 1, 2020.
  • Your loan should not be written off the account books by the end of the month before the month you have requested the moratorium/request to defer the loan.
