Dear Sir,

Re: Retail Asset Product “Baroda Traders Loan” – Master Circular

We request a reference to our circular no. BCC: BR: 99:268 dated 6th September
2007 informing about the product features of retail asset product “Baroda Traders

You are aware that ‘Baroda Traders Loan’ is one of the important key products of
retail loan basket available against the security of immovable property/ies with a
maximum limit of Rs.200 lacs for small Borrowers engaged in the trading activities of
goods in physical form. The assessment of working capital requirement under BTL is
done on the line of Nayak Committee recommendations. Therefore Zone/Regions
generally should not recommend for considering deviation for sanction of BTL limit
beyond Rs.500 lacs. All cases above Rs.500 lacs need therefore to be preferably
considered out side the scope of “Retail Banking” with a view to have better credit
supervision and control.

During the last five years various modifications in product features have taken place.
With a view to provide updated features of the product to our operating units and
aggressive marketing of the product, we are enclosing the revised product profile of
“Baroda Traders Loan”.

We request you to create awareness amongst the staff members of the Branch as
well as amongst the target Trader’s Community operating in your area of operation
for aggressive marketing of the product.

We wish you all the very best in the endeavours.

Yours faithfully

General Manager
(Retail Banking,CSOs,Mktg.,PUB.,PR & OL)
