The article examines the evidence for credit channel on the composition of corporate finance during tight and loose periods of monetary policy, using micro-level data on Indian firms for 1995-2007. The findings provide evidence in favor of the relationship lending view, although the magnitude and extent of the response varies according to firm characteristics.
