“The TAT was two to three weeks. Clients’ end up losing many opportunities by having such kind of delays and inefficiencies in paperwork logistics. With Leegality, we can now onboard more customers per month, get better word of mouth reviews and increase the territories from where we source customers.” - Umesh Parshetye, Chief Technology Officer, ASK Group

Product Updates

Auto reverse used stamps from the draft folders to make them useable with Auto- Purging

Do you forget about the stamps attached to your drafts and end up buying new stamps each time? An unused stamp is wasted money and it stays in your drafts unless you manually go to the drafts folder and delete the draft. This used to be an annoying exercise for Leegality admin users.

With Draft Auto Purging the admin can now set a  fixed number of days for auto purging drafts. After these days lapse, all drafts are deleted automatically and the stamps attached to them are returned to be used again by the organization. Learn more about auto-purging here.

We've onboarded another ESP for Aadhaar eSign - CDSL. This will help you achieve a 100% success rate with Aadhaar eSign by auto-switching your ESP whenever NSDL is down. Leegality now supports NSDL, Verasys and CSDL.

RBI issues Guidelines on Digital Lending

On January 13, 2021 The Reserve Bank of India constituted a Working Group on ‘digital lending including lending through online platforms and mobile apps’ (WGDL). On September 2, 2022, the RBI released Guidelines on recommendations of the Working Group that it has accepted for immediate implementation. These Guidelines have significant implications for all members of the digital lending ecosystem - from Banks/NBFCs to Fintechs: -:

Here are some key highlights:

  • The RBI has mandated digitally signed documents. The loan agreement kit containing the Key Fact Statement, sanction letter, summary of loan product etc. must be digitally signed by the lender and the borrower. The final document must then be sent to the borrower’s email/SMS.
  • You must take the explicit consent of your borrower for a number of actions (enhancement of credit limit, collection of data etc). The consent captured should clearly identify the signer and must have an audit trail.

To know more about how Leegality can help you comply with these guidelines, you can view our deck on the same or contact your Leegality account manager for more information.
