The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) gave more power to banks to restructure external commercial borrowings (ECBs) of companies. RBI has allowed the banks,
- To modify the draw-down and repayment schedules of the ECBs.
- To change the ECB loan from one company to another in case of re-organization or merger.
- To reduce the amount of ECB along with any changes in draw-down and repayment schedules.
