Kisan Loan System (KLS) and PACS Automation
Given that the dynamics of lending to the agriculture sector are very complex in India, there is no application available that addresses all the needs for operations in the agriculture loan business. The monitoring of agriculture loans continues to be archaic and manual even in the digital world of today. The financial inclusion goals of the government and the need for greater transparency and collaboration have increased the urgency to automate the processes involved. VSoft’s agriculture loan solution, Kisan Loan System (KLS), is a system that enables technology integration of non-banking grassroots lending agencies, Primary Agriculture Credit Societies (PACS), with corresponding District Credit Cooperative Banks (DCCB).There are over one lakh PACS covering around 9 crore farmers.

VSoft’s KLS facilitates bringing in the farmers who are dependent on PACS for rudimentary financial services into banks by automatically opening a savings account with the DCCB branches and providing digital banking services through the issuance of bank cards. Additionally, KLS provides computerization of PACS records and regulates the lending via its parameters.KLS is different from traditional in its ability to regulate the loans; rather than allow immediate access to the entire loan amount and enable potential misuse, KLS mitigates the risk by operating the loans as cash credit accounts for use during crop season. In an effort to develop financial inclusion and empowerment of citizens in rural India, VSoft has further developed a farmer’s portal for performing financial and non-financial activities.

Further Expansion
VSoft is driven by technology leaders with a robust experience in the BFSI sector and senior bankers who have worked for some of the largest commercial and cooperative banks in India.“Our client centric approach has helped us develop solutions in collaboration with the users leading to operationally friendly and efficient products. Continuous identification of needs followed by innovation and improvement is paving the way for the company to become an industry leader in the digital banking and payments domain,” said Murthy Veeraghanta, Chairman & CEO of VSoft.

The company is targeting an IPO in the next 18-24 months to raise capital to fund its growth. With development centres currently in Hyderabad and Rajahmundry, VSoft is also planning to set up a delivery centre in Visakhapatnam, while expanding their sales presence in Latin America and Africa.
