“Cost of funding has gone down by 40 bps in first half of FY21,” said Sanjay Chamria, VC & MD of Magma Fincorp in an interview to CNBC-TV18.
According to him, micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) are struggling for funds while top rated companies are drawing money cheap.

According to Sridhar, average cost of funds will come down by 25-30 bps by March 2021.
