Power Finance Corp, REC reduce lending rates by 40 bps
PFC and REC Ltd have further reduced their lending rates across all types of loans by 40 Bps, a power ministry statement said.
The reduction in rates has been possible due to lower cost of borrowings by these organisations. It is pertinent to note that PFC and REC are already providing short-term loans at interest rates as low as 6.25 per cent, the ministry said.
Singh said continued reduction of lending rates by REC and PFC will help power utilities to borrow at competitive rates and invest in improving the power sector infrastructure, thereby benefiting the consumer by way of reliable and cheap power.
In the last about one year, both the organisations have reduced lending rates cumulatively by up to 3 per cent.
In order to give a boost to renewable energy, where long-term funding is required, the rates have been revised to as low as 8.25 per cent, it informed.
