CRISIL has reaffirmed its rating on Series A pass-through certificates (PTCs) issued under the transaction ‘Sansar Trust Sep 2013 –II’ at ‘CRISIL AAA (SO). CRISIL has also reaffirmed its credit opinion on the second loss facility at ‘CRISIL BBB (SO) Equivalent’. The underlying receivables arise from a pool of commercial vehicle and passenger vehicle loans originated by Shriram Transport Finance Company Limited (STFCL; rated ‘CRISIL AA+/FAAA/Stable/CRISIL A1+’).

The performance of the pool is in line with CRISIL’s expectations. The pool has seen a stable collection performance with a CCR of 95.4 per cent and a 3 month average MCR of 98.9 per cent as of June 2015 payouts. The healthy collection performance coupled with high amortisation of around 68 per cent has led to an increase in the credit cover available to the future PTC payouts from the cash collateral.

The cash collateral in the transaction has been reset. At the time of securitisation, this transaction had cash collateral of Rs. 703.0 million. Following the reset, Rs. 206.8 million (29.4 per cent of the initial cash collateral) will be released and the revised CE stands at Rs. 496.2 million. The cash collateral, after reset, remains commensurate with the outstanding ratings on the pool. CRISIL has ensured its conformity to all aspects mentioned in the RBI reset guidelines.
