  2. Post harvest liquidity… A Major Challenge • Present agro produce marketing system is inefficient & fragmented • Warehouses, their management & receipts issued by them do not enjoy market confidence • Despite being one of the oldest lending products, warehouse receipt funding has been a “no-no” for banks • Higher margins & interest rates do not leave viable option for farmers Farmers in India realize just about 30-35% value ot their produce vis-à-vis 65-70% in the developed economies

  3. Ground Reality in Post Harvest Credit Lower credibility Lack of confidence High risk perception Not seen as an alternative by farmers /Traders Lower liquidity & high price for credit

  4. Commodity funding… Inhibiting issues Warehouse Facilities • Unreliable performance of warehousemen - fraud & mismanagement • High charges levied to farmers/traders Warehouse Receipts (WR) • Negotiability of warehouse receipts • Non-uniformity of WRs • Stamp duty on private Warehouse WRs in some states Collateral Management Services • Responsibility not understood properly • Few quality service providers • Cost of services

  5. Commodity funding… Inhibiting issues Risk Management Issues • Price knowledge • Liquidity on commodity exchanges • Non-acceptance of WR: Tradability without physical delivery Commodity Related issues • Lack of standardization of grades • Co-mingling / Fungibility risks • Part delivery of goods Other issues • Double-financing of stocks • Sales tax on goods changing hands in warehouse

  6. Processing Marketing VALUE PRODUCE Storage Logistics Warehousing in India has Multiple Dimensions… • Post harvest liquidity & better price realisation for farmers. • A sine-qua-non for efficient commercial trade in agro-commodities. • Backbone to commodity exchange – Futures & Spot. • To boost Agro & food processing industry

  7. Recent Initiatives…Trickle or Gush ! • Agri-credit to double in three years – annual growth 30%+ with number of qualitative & outreach targets-financial inclusion (This year Budget puts agri lending target at USD 50 bio+) • Setting up of national level commodity exchanges for price discovery, dissemination & price risk management • Electronic national spot market on anvil • Partial rationalization of export-imports of agro commodities • Policy initiatives • Model APMC Act • Integrated food laws • Essential Commodities Act 1955 – Amendments • Warehousing Regulations & Development Bill 2005

  8. Warehousing Regulation & Development Bill… A Major Step forward Major provision • Regulation of warehousing business by registering warehouses issuing negotiable warehouse receipt • The establishment & incorporation of an authority to be called The Warehousing Development & Regulation Authority (WDRA) • The registration of accreditation agencies for warehouses to accredit warehouses based on required norms • The condition for negotiability of warehouse receipts by delivery & endorsement • Constitution of the Warehousing Advisory Committee • Likely to result into … • Increase in the liquidity in rural areas • Encourage scientific warehousing of goods • Lower cost of financing • Shorter & more efficient supply chains • Enhanced rewards for grading & quality • Better price risk management

  9. Warehouse receipt financing …to spurt • Post 1969 with introduction of the concept of priority sector – bank’s lending in agri sector predominantly input financing oriented- 95 % + • The impending legislation coupled with several other enabling factors likely to make post-harvest lending a big draw • Increasing disintermediation from corporate lending, Banks are looking for retail opportunities • Warehouse receipt financing to meet mandatory requirements on a commercial keel • Collateral management companies to provide support critical to commodity funding which is likely to touch US $ 25-30 billion in the next 3-5 yrs (presently meagre US $ 3 Billion)

On the back of Collateral Management Services • “ Collateral ” as understood in Indian banking parlance is “secondary source of payment obligations” • “Collateral” in the present context is an asset / 3rd party commitment accepted by the Collateral Taker (Bank) to secure an obligation of the Collateral Provider • “Collateral Management (CM)” involves managing the collateral on behalf of the collateral taker. CM transactions are intended to protect against performance risk of counter party • Banks in India have traditionally been assets based lenders –with hardly any knowledge of asset financed • Reach of Banks, pvt. sector Banks in particular, coupled with lack of domain expertise • Banks, Public & Private, under pressure to expand agri credit portfolio, sound collateral management therefore to become major enabler

  11. What Collateral Managers do ?.... • Identify various inherent and external risks associated with collateral and mitigate these risks with integrated risk management system • Audit , Accredit & Provide storage facilities for commodity funding • Quality and Quantity assurance for both lender and borrower, backs the same with guarantees and insurance • Arrange quality certification and quality protection services • Manage storage facilities adhering to operational standards for minimizing loss and risks • Provides services for total control on stock • In-bound and outbound logistics support • Advisory and Inventory Management services • Collateral status reporting on periodical basis • Facilitating disposal of collateral, as and when required End to end commodity management solutions & risk management practices targeted to minimize collateral risk and maximize returns to counter party
