The age-old fear of moneylenders has instilled a natural financial discipline among Indians. Yet, the heady growth over the past four years has lulled many into a false sense of security and put them at risk of falling into a debt trap. Risks for borrowers increased manifold after the markets moved towards a floating rate regime and financial innovation created products that left them with a much larger liability than their initial borrowings. Future borrowers could perhaps take a leaf out of the book of mistakes that their predecessors have made in the recent past.

6. Erstwhile private moneylenders provided financial security to the borrowers.

7. Borrowers are more at risk when they avail loan with floating rate of interest.

8. New financial products decrease liability of the borrowers.
