Immediately after Lockdown 1, RBI issued a Circular dated 27.03.2020 permitting all lending institutions – commercial Banks, Co-operative Banks, All India Financial Institutions and NBFCs, to grant a moratorium of three months on payment of all term loan instalments falling due between 1st of March 2020 and 31st of May 2020.
