Performance of Non-Government Non-Banking Financial and Investment Companies, 2018-19: Data Release

Today, the Reserve Bank of India released on its website (!2_43) data relating to the performance of non-government non-banking financial and investment (NGNBF&I) companies (excluding insurance and banking companies) for 2018-19.

The study covered audited annual accounts of 15,206 NGNBF&I companies accounting for 83.3 per cent of the total paid-up capital (PUC) of all NGNBF&I companies as on March 31, 2019. Explanatory notes to the data statements are given in the Annex.


  • Financial income recorded a robust growth of 21.9 per cent (Y-o-Y) in 2018-19 on the back of increased lending and investments activities (Statements 1, 2 and 3).

  • Combined balance sheet of the NGNBF&I companies expanded by 17.6 per cent during 2018-19 over and above 24.5 per cent increase in the previous year: asset finance companies had the largest share (45.5 per cent). (Statements 4A and 4B)

  • Long-term loans had over half the share in total assets in March 2019; investments and short-term loans together accounted for another one-fourths of the assets. (Statement 4B)

  • Nearly 57 per cent of total expenditure during 2018-19 was account of interest payments: share capital and borrowings had around 20 per cent and 60 per cent shares, respectively, in total liabilities of the NGNBF&I companies in March 2019. (Statement 3 and 4A)

  • Net profit growth (Y-o-Y) moderated to 2.6 per cent in 2018-19 (5.3 per cent in the previous year) and profitability ratio (net profits to total net asset) also declined: asset finance companies as well as share trading and investment holding companies made good profits whereas loan finance companies continued to report losses due to write-off of bad debt. (Statements 1, 2 and 3)

  • Business expansion during 2018-19 was largely funded by external sources in the form of bank borrowings, bonds and debentures, share capital and premium (Statement 5A).

Note: The Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA), Government of India, is the primary source of these data
