Post receipt of your request, we shall communicate if your request has been accepted and inform you the applicable interest cost that will be capitalised along with all terms & conditions applicable for the moratorium.
If you are eligible for a moratorium, based on your consistent past repayment of EMIs, you will be offered a moratorium for all your active loans with BFL. You need to give one single request to avail moratorium for all your active loans. You must provide details of your loan account numbers and a confirmation that you are ready to bear the cost of applicable interest for the period of moratorium.
If you avail the moratorium benefit, interest will be levied at the contracted rate of the loan for the period of the benefit on the outstanding loan amount. Such interest will be collected by extending the original tenor of the loan accordingly.
If you do not want the EMI moratorium, no further action is required from your side. You can continue repaying your EMIs.
We encourage customers with adequate funds to continue paying during this period to avoid the extra interest charges and tenor extension. However, if you skip your EMI payment during this period, it is understood that you require EMI moratorium till May 2020.
Opting for the Moratorium is entirely the customer's choice and is subject to BFL's moratorium policy. We understand that all our customers may not opt for the Moratorium given that there is an additional interest payable under the terms of the moratorium.
Interest will be applicable for the products bought on No Cost EMI if a moratorium on the loan is availed. The payable interest shall be communicated to you when you place the request for the moratorium. You can also refer to your Statement of Account and or the customer portal – Experia to check this amount.
The borrower may need to furnish a fresh NACH debit mandate as may be required by BFL.
This will depend if your moratorium request has been approved and if the request for was received at least 7 days before the EMI deduction date.
Customers who raise a request for opting for EMI moratorium at least 7 days before deduction of their instalments will not be levied any EMI bounce charges
For the customers who do not clear their outstanding EMI through the month will also be evaluated for providing automatic moratorium. They will also be liable to pay bounce charges but late payment penalty will not be charged.
For the EMI months in which moratorium has been offered, BFL shall not be levying any late payment charges. If any late payment charges get levied, the same shall be waived off/reversed.

This does not apply to any non-payment of EMIs that would have been reported to the credit bureau before 01 Mar 2020. However, the fact that you availed the moratorium facility will be reported to the Credit Bureau.
It is a relief granted to the borrower due to the temporary disruption caused by the sudden lockdown. However, the borrower has an option to make any advance EMI payment as per existing terms of his loan.
