Digitally ready Bank of Baroda aims to click on more loans
After overhauling its IT infrastructure to arrange digital banking departments internally, the public sector lender Bank of Baroda is currently focusing on something like 65% of retail originations and 35% of MSME loans (value wise) to be performed digitally by the top point of the present fiscal 12 months. The financial institution can be focusing on ₹50,000 crore of digital lending within the present financial a year.

“We consider that this a year we will disburse loans of over ₹50,000 crore by our digital financial institution this a year alone,” stated Akhil Handa, chief digital head, Bank of Baroda. “This will be a combination of retail (home, auto, personal) loans and small ticket MSME loans (loans and small ticket MSME loans). We have a substantial advantage over peer banks that are getting started with their digital journey.”
 
Handa added that no less than ₹35,000 crore-₹40,000 crore will come from lending to the retail sector, though the strength will most likely be contributed by the MSME phase.
 
At current, 50% of financial institutions’ retail loans are sourced digitally. Out of this, 97% of the financial institution private loans are disbursed end to end digitally though most of the house mortgage originations are completed digitally. Around 90% of all new retail accounts had been performed digitally. “Around 65% of retail and 35% of MSME will be digital for this present year. Our push is on the individual credit item and taking a look at the current run rate that by itself will assist us to reach our lending goal,” Handa stated.
