• How will the treatment of my loan be after the moratorium period?
1. If you avail the EMI moratorium, there will be a levy of interest at the contracted rate of the
loan for the period of EMI moratorium on the loan outstanding. Such interest will be collected
by extending the original tenor of the loan accordingly. For Flexi loan tenure will remain
unchanged, EMI will increase.
2. Interest will be applicable for the no cost EMI consumer durable loans too for this moratorium
period. You shall be communicated on the interest applicable for your moratorium request.
3. You would be able to check the same in your Statement of Account on our Customer Portal
(https://www.bajajfinservmarkets.in/cust/#/) or Mobile App (https://bfsmarkets.in/mobileApp)

• If I do not want the EMI moratorium, what should I do?

1. If you do not want the EMI moratorium, no further action is required from your side. We will
continue to bank your repayment instructions.
2. We encourage customers with adequate funds to continue paying during this period to avoid
the extra interest charges and tenor extension.

• Why was my account debited when the RBI has announced a moratorium?
Opting for the Moratorium is entirely the customers’ choice and subject to Company’s
moratorium policy. We understand that all our customers may not opt for the Moratorium given
that there is an additional interest payable under the terms of the Moratorium.

• How will the interest be recovered for the no cost EMI loans on which moratorium is
For No Cost EMI loans & consumer durable loans, the upfront interest applicable is borne by the
dealer/retailer at the time of purchase and is shared in your statement of account. Thus, it helped
you to pay the product price in instalments instead of a lump-sum amount. If you are now opting for
a moratorium, your loan tenor will be increased. Hence, interest @ 24% per annum will apply on the
outstanding loan amount. This amount will be added to your EMI repayments to us.

• Will I be required to submit any documents, fresh NACH debit mandate?

The borrower may need to furnish fresh NACH debit mandate as may be required by the company

• Will my EMIs get debited from my bank account during the moratorium period?
For all loans which have been offered moratorium, we shall on a best effort basis be putting the EMIs
on hold, subject to the receipt of moratorium request before the cut off date and acceptance of your
moratorium request.

• Will bounce charges be levied for EMIs of the moratorium period?

Customers who raise a request for opting for EMI moratorium before 26th of the month, prior to
month in which EMI will be getting debited from their bank account, will not be levied any EMI

bounce charges. For the customers who do not clear their outstanding through the month will also
be evaluated for providing automatic moratorium. They will be liable to pay bounce charges but late
payment penalty will not be charged.

• Will late payment penalty be levied for EMI months of the moratorium period?
For the EMI months in which moratorium has been offered, BFL shall not be levying any late
payment charges. If any late payment charges get levied, the same shall be waived off/reversed.

• Will my Credit Bureau records be impacted if I apply for Moratorium?

If you are eligible and you have availed of the moratorium, your credit bureau records will not
be impacted due to non-payment of EMIs during the moratorium period. This does not apply to
any non-payment of EMIs that would have been reported to the credit bureau prior to 01 Mar
2020. However, that you availed the moratorium facility will get reported to Credit Bureaus.

• Can the borrower pay in between the moratorium period?

It is a relief granted to the borrower due to the temporary disruption caused by the sudden
lockdown. However, the borrower has an option to make any advance EMI payment as per
existing terms of his loan.

• If my loan is already in NPA as of Feb 29, 2020 will the moratorium be applicable to me?
