Loans and advances may primarily be divided into two groups:

a)Fixed term loan: These are the advances made by the Bank with fixed repayment schedules. The term of loan are defined as follows:

Short Term:Up to 12 months

Medium Term:More than 12 and up to 36 months

Long Term:More than 36 months

b)Continuing Credits: Theses are the advances having no fixed repayment schedule, but have an expiry date at which it is renewable on satisfactory performance.

Depending on the various nature of financing, all the lending activities have been brought under the following major heads:


Short, medium & long term loans allowed to individual/firm/industries for a specific purpose and for a definite period and generally repayable by installments fall under this head. This type of lending is mainly allowed to accommodate financing under the categories of Large & Medium Scale Industry and Small & Cottage Industry. Very often term financing for Agriculture & Others are also included here.


Overdrafts and demand loans are granted mostly to private individuals & firms. So far as the operation of accounts is concerned, there is little difference between a Cash Credit and Overdraft as in both these cases banks place at the disposal of the borrowers a certain limit for certain period and interest is charged quarterly on the outstanding daily balance. The borrower enjoys the convenience of drawing as and when necessary and repaying the amounts thus overdrawn as and when he is in funds.

In the case of a demand loan, however, the drawing is only made at the time advance is sanctioned/disbursed and thereafter no further drawings are allowed, but debits are raised only in respect of interest and other charges till the entire loan is liquidated by partial or on lump sum repayment. On demand Loans interest is charged on daily balance periodically- usually on quarterly basis.


Credits allowed to individuals/firms for trading as well as wholesale purpose or to industries to meet the working capital requirements against hypothecation of goods as primary security fall under this type of lending. It is a continuing credit. It is allowed under the categories of Commercial Lending when the borrower is other than an industry and Working Capital when the client is an industry.


Financial accommodations provided to individuals/firms for trading as well as wholesaling or to industries for working capital against pledge of goods as primary security fall under this head of advance. It is also a continuous credit and is allowed under the categories of Commercial Lending and Working Capital.
