Bank credit to the industry fell by 3.4% year-on-year (Y-o-Y) in November to Rs 25.79 lakh crore, recording its worst growth figure in at least six years, according to data released by the Reserve Bank of India.

In November 2015, the corresponding figure stood at Rs 26.69 lakh crore, up 5% from November 2014.
A drop in credit deployment in medium, and micro and small industries primarily accounted for the drop, falling 10.1% and 7.7%, respectively. Analysts say activity at MSMEs was hit the hardest by the government’s decision to withdraw high-value currency notes on November 8.
