How to monitoring Advances


Lending is one of the most important functions of a commercial bank and with the modern concept of social order and participation of commercial banks in various phases of commercial, industrial, agricultural and other economic activities of the country, it is of paramount importance that banks have to be very careful while choosing a borrower.

Before sanctioning a loan a banker carefully appraises the loan proposal of the borrower & to determine their credit worthiness on the basis of principles of sound lending

Simply an appraisal of loan proposal is not a guarantee against risk of non-payment by the borrowers. This is only a part of the job.

The other and equally important responsibility of the lending banker is to follow-up and supervises the use of the credit.

2. So, a banker while sanctioning any loan should ensure that the credit facility is allowed to the genuine borrowers for genuine economic purposes, money lending is properly used for generation of income through increased economic activities and the borrowed money is repaid in time. All these can be ensured through an effective supervision and follow-up system of the advances.

3. Supervision and follow-up are closely related. Supervision gives more emphasis on proper end-use and follow-up gives more emphasis on timely recovery of advances.

By supervision we mean to have a proper control over the borrowers’ operation to ensure the end use of funds.

4. Supervision keeps track of the end-use of fund lent. It includes adequate arrangement by bank for maintaining close contact with the borrower and his activities in order to remain well informed about the position and progress of the project financed and to offer appropriate guidance to the borrower, where necessary.
Follow-up includes efforts to ensure that the terms and conditions of the advance at–
Post-disbursements and
Recovery stages are complied with and money lent is repaid as per schedule of repayment.

It also includes efforts to regularize the irregular advances. Recovery of advances largely depends on effective follow-up.

Follow-up is the systematic process through which these activities are carried out.

5. The basic objective of supervision and follow-up system is to ensure that the advances granted by the bank are safe as the funds lent by banks belong to the depositors and the bank management has tremendous responsibility in safeguarding the interests of millions of depositors. Supervision work of loan starts right from the stage of selection of a borrower whereas Follow-up work of loan starts immediately after disbursement of the loan.

Supervision and follow-up of advances are the direct responsibilities of the branch. Branch is the unit wherefrom the proposal is made for any advance and disbursement is made. The borrowers maintain his account with the branch, operations are conducted through the account, reports, and returns are submitted, by the borrower to the branch. So success depends on how effectively the branch ensures supervision and follow-up of the advances.
Bank branches responsible for supervision and follow-up have to follow the following:

To ensure that operations of accounts are regular, Bad indications warrant greater supervision.
To keep watch over the inflow and outflow of Fund.
Maintenance of production and sales record.
To verify proper end-use of funds for the purpose for which loan was given.
Progress made in construction and operations.
Inventory position and Turn over rate observation
Ensure that security/collaterals have been obtained as per terms of sanction.
Ensure that the valuation of security has been assessed correctly.
Position regarding insurance of goods.
Ensure that the documents have been obtained as per terms of sanctions.
Regular inspection of the security and verification of document.
Reasons for default or delayed payment of loan installments.
Appropriate actions are taken in time to regularize the irregularities and recover as per schedule.
Keep regular contract with the borrower.
To keep a watch on safety of funds.

Obtain Periodical balance confirmation.

Maintenance of limit registers.
Non-compliance of any terms and conditions of the loan.
Other account of the borrower.


– Monitoring is a process of ensuring that performance takes place in conformity with the plan. In case of project loan it starts from the selection of the borrower and remains to live throughout the life of a loan.
