Earlier IndusInd Bank, under the RBI COVID19 package, offered its valued customers the moratorium of up to 3 months on Loan EMIs and Credit Card dues payment, i.e., the choice to defer Loan EMIs and Credit Card dues falling between 01.03.2020 and 31.05.2020.

As announced in the statement by RBI Governor on 22.05.2020, the intensification of disruptions caused by COVID-19, there is a need to relax repayment pressures and improve access to working capital by reducing the burden of debt servicing and ensure the continuity of viable business. Thus, banks have been allowed to extend moratorium by another 3 months, i.e., from 01.06.2020 to 31.08.2020.

The bank, at their discretion, can also convert the accumulated interest for the said deferment period up to 31.08.2020, into a funded interest term loan (FITL), which will be repayable not later than 31.03.2021.
