    “If three months instalment is not paid during the moratorium period, the credit history of borrower will not be impacted,” the SBI chief said.
    He mentioned that the bank's board had approved policies on assessment of eligibility and operational details. "We will be able to notify operational details very quickly. Our next board meeting is on April 1, when we will get a board approval and immediately issue guidelines," he said referring to RBI's announcements earlier in the day.
    He continued, "RBI announcements are sweeping and comprehensive in nature. No one can say that RBI could have done more. This is a an usual situation and requires an extraordinary response."
