R K Chhibber, CMD, J&K Bank, thanked the Lt Governor for his support and foresight. He said that the purpose of tailoring J&K Bank Business Support Loan Scheme 2019-20 for businesses is to provide them much needed financial cushion so that they are able to meet the temporary mismatch in their cash flows caused by the business challenges during 2019 followed by COVID-19 pandemic. 
In the case of ‘J&K Bank Business Support Loan Scheme 2019-20 for Hotels and Guest Houses’, he said, the aim is to support the units financially for meeting their expenditure towards salaries to staff and other recurring fixed costs. It was informed that the credit scheme titled ‘J&K Bank Business Support Loan 2019-20’ has been engineered keeping SMA1 & SMA2 borrowers into consideration.
The highlights include 10% enhancement in existing working capital limit in the form of a 3 year working capital term loan (which includes one year moratorium on principal), subject to an upper limit of Rs 5 cr for SMA2 and Rs 20 cr for other standard loans.
It was further informed that the other scheme, titled as ‘J&K Bank Business Support Loan 2019-20 for Hotels & Guest Houses’. All existing customers under this segment i.e. Government recognized/registered hotels and guest houses are eligible under this scheme including the SMA1 and SMA2 borrowers.

The scheme will also have an initial moratorium of 12 months on principal with a maximum allowed repayment period of 36 months.
In order to provide a breather to the stressed businesses, the bank has decided to waive of processing charges, foreclosure charges & margin requirement under both the schemes. Moreover, the finance under these schemes shall be available at a very competitive interest rate of only 8.80% per annum which has been linked with 3 year MCLR with a markup of only 50 bps.
