  1. dear Sureshji, thks for the excellent analysis !
    but I am observing that the fintechs are competing to garner funds with higher & higher interest rates. what could be the reasons for their confidence about its sustainability ?

    1. Hello Thomas, Banks are already offering high interest rates, hence NBFC’s are offering extra interest rates to attract investors. These are high risk as deposit insurance is also not applicable to them.
