Textile sector witnesses a decline in FY 2006-07

The decline in the credit growth of India's banking system from 27.9 per cent in 2006-07 to 21.6 per cent in 2007-08 resultant from RBI's tight monetary policy, has impacted the key sectors like mining, construction, petroleum, gems & jewellery, textiles in credit disbursements, according to ASSOCHAM Eco Pulse (AEP).

The AEP Study titled, “Trends of Industrial Deployment of Gross Bank Credit”, for FY 2007-08, analyzed the credit disbursements among 20 sectors like mining and quarrying (including coal), wood and wood products, 'petroleum, coal and nuclear fuels', rubber, plastics and their products, gems & jewellery.

The study also revealed out that credit allocation to the mining and quarrying sector (including coal) fell from Rs. 3,558 crore to Rs. 2,912 crore.

In growth terms, the sector witnessed a fall of credit disbursements from 85.8 per cent in 2006-07 to 37.8 per cent in the previous fiscal.

Although with a healthy growth of 5.3 per cent in the last fiscal from 2.4 per cent in FY 2006-07 in the woods & woods products, the sector has witnessed the steepest decline in the deployment of gross bank credit from 92.9 per cent in 2006-07 to 6.0 per cent in FY 2007-08.

Despite a rise in the gross bank credit from Rs. 6,667 crore in FY 2006-07 to Rs. 8,328 crore in the last fiscal, the construction industry saw a fall in the credit growth from 50.1 per cent in FY 2006-07 to 41.7 per cent in FY 2007-08 reflecting the plans of the real estate developers postponing their investment decisions.

With the companies incurring losses with continuous rise in the fuel prices, the companies in the petroleum, coal and nuclear fuels sector have deferred their expansion plans.

The sector witnessed a decline in the credit disbursements from Rs. 10,736 crore in FY 2006-07 to Rs. 5,852 in FY 2007-08 crore- a dip from 42.7 per cent to 16.3 per cent.

Tight monetary policy and rising interest rates have affected the credit allocation of the gems and jewellery sector. The sector witnessed a decline in credit off take from Rs. 3,291 crore in FY 2006-07 to Rs. 1,145 crore in FY 2007-08.

The annual growth rate of the sector was 16 per cent in FY 2006-07 which has declined to a mere 4.8 per cent in the previous financial year.

“The fall in the gross bank credit has severely impacted the industrial activity. With the hikes in the policy rates, the banks are left with no option but to hike the lending rates which has led to slower bank credit and slower growth”, said Mr. Sajjan Jindal, President, ASSOCHAM.
