Impact of the RBI’s Decision

IIFL Securities predicts a 200-300 basis points hit on tier-1 ratios for REC and PFC, potentially affecting valuation multiples. However, RoE is expected to remain unaffected.

CLSA emphasises that higher provisions will impact impairment reserves but not drag down profits for REC and PFC, given their robust capitalisation. The proposed changes align with RBI's aim to strengthen project financing regulations.
