Strengths Strong Management team with professional

background and rich industrial experience of the promoters. Latest technology based imported as well indigenous machinery. Location on which proposed expansion will be implemented is in an industrial area and by the side of National Highway-24 and all types of Infrastructure facilities are available nearby. The factory premise is within 1KM from Power Grid and presently power in the unit is supplied from an independent feeder and continuous power supply is available. Proximity to market, quick delivery in small lots. The company has adopted internationally proven

Weakness Other big player in the steel industry can give

tough competition. Change in the govt. policy for steel industry may affect the profitability unit. Rolling Mill industry is high turnover and low margins industry. Fluctuating prices of raw materials and finished goods.

Opportunities The unit is already set in 1971 and has a strong

network of dealers. The Rathi brand is an established brand for the last more than 50 years. The unit after expansion will not face any problem in marketing its products.

The focus of the Central government on road projects

and the emphasis of the government on irrigation and water supply projects are expected to give fillip to the construction industry. Combining the investments in the key sectors , the

industrial investments are expected to increase by 70% over the next 5 years.

Threats Frequent fluctuation in prices of Steel which may

affect the profitability of the Projects. Big Players like SAIL and Jindals are ramping up the Capacity of SS Products. The Fortunes of the Steel Industry are closely linked to that of the economy in general and infrastructure in particular. Industry is highly cyclic in nature with high mortality rates. Change in the government policies related to the construction/infrastructure industry will have direct impact on Companys performance.

Findings Risk is the center most part of the analysis and

basis for the decision of the bank. All the analysis is being done to generate a grade, which represents the intensity of risk, that helps in determining the condition of the corporate applying for loan. The whole process of credit appraisal helps in providing a suitable measure to minimize the risk due to non repayment of loan to the bank.

SUGGESTIONS In the rating model there are constant parameters

with constant weightages irrespective of the company and the industry in which it operates. Weightage should be assigned to parameters according to the industry in which the company operates. Rating should be performed when calculating the worthiness of the client since the previous rating does not take into account the short term drastic changes such as price level changes etc. The rating model should have some sort of mechanism to prioritize sectors according to their risk content. The bank should be dependent on its own and not go by lead bank suggestions. Since it is a very tedious task to maintain so much documents and files of the clients, an electronic database can be designed to manage the files in

Limitations Data availability as the data is proprietary and not readily

shared for dissemination. Geographical scope of the project was limited to PNB

Circle Office and the loans studied were of solely of businesses established majorly in NCR The credit appraisal decision are more of intuition and

experience and since the time period was limited, hence best efforts were made to grasp the process as much as possible. Due to ever changing environment, many risks are

unexpected and the remedial measures available are based on general experience from the past. Therefore risks can only be minimized cannot be erased completely.
