Citizens would accept a new extension of payment of installments on loans and cards, but only if the current interest rates remain. However, so far there is nothing new on this topic and the deadline remains until the end of September, when only interest is flowing and the principal is not repaid.
The measure ends in October, and until then the situation brought by the pandemic will be monitored. Over 70 percent of citizens chose the option of deferred payment.
“Regulatory changes that have eased the financial burden of the affected borrowers are valid for banks and savings houses until the end of September, but if necessary, the possibility of their validity will be considered,” the National Bank said earlier.
