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.

Ans: 4

17. Borrowers are more at risk when they avail loan with floating rate of interest.
Ans: 1

19. Future borrowers need to learn from the experience of others before they borrow.
Ans: 1

20. Attractive financial products put less burden on the borrowers.
