In March, the central bank had allowed a three-month moratorium on payment of all term loans due between 1 March, 2020, and 31 May, 2020.
Accordingly, the repayment schedule and all subsequent due dates, as also the tenor for such loans, were shifted across the board by three months.
As a result of this moratorium, individuals' EMI repayments of loans taken were not deducted from their bank accounts, providing much-needed liquidity.
The EMI payments will restart only once the moratorium time period expires on 31 August.
