OJK announced changes to the credit risk-weights for motor vehicle, housing, and healthcare sector loans from banks and financing companies. The regulator also launched the Indonesian Banking Development Roadmap for 2020-2025 as a reference for authorities, the banking industry, and other stakeholders. Both these developments are part of a response to encourage economic growth in these difficult times, through the financial services sector policy.
For motor vehicle loans of banks, credit risk-weight has been lowered from 100% to 50%. Banks that meet the risk profile criteria 1 and 2 are allowed to provide a down payment for motor vehicle loans of 0%. For credit provision to battery-based electric motorized vehicle manufacturers, the credit risk-weight has been lowered from 75% to 50%. Under the housing-backed credit policy with respect to banks, OJK has established that the applicable risk-weight is 35% for loans with down payment of up to 30%, 25% for down payment of 30% to 50%, and 20% for down payment of more than 50%. Furthermore, OJK stipulates that credit for the health sector will be subject to a risk-weight of 50%, which represents a reduction from the earlier risk-weight of 100%.
In the other update from OJK, Heru Kristiyana, the Executive Head of the OJK Banking Supervision, explained that the development roadmap for banking sector will serve as a guideline for the development of the banking industry ecosystem and future regulatory, supervisory, and licensing infrastructure.
