Explanation: Debt refers to funds borrowed by a company from external sources, such as banks, financial institutions, or bondholders, to finance its operations or investments. Debt can be classified into two main categories based on the repayment period: long-term debt and short-term debt.

  1. Long-Term Debt: Long-term debt includes obligations that are due for repayment over a period exceeding one year. It typically involves large sums of money borrowed for major investments, such as infrastructure projects, equipment purchases, or acquisitions. Long-term debt instruments often have maturity periods ranging from several years to several decades. Examples of long-term debt include long-term loans, bonds, and mortgage obligations.

  2. Short-Term Debt: Short-term debt consists of obligations that are due for repayment within one year or within the company’s normal operating cycle, whichever is longer. Short-term debt is used to finance day-to-day operations, manage working capital needs, or cover temporary cash flow shortages. Short-term debt instruments usually have shorter maturity periods, ranging from a few days to one year. Examples of short-term debt include bank overdrafts, lines of credit, trade payables, and short-term loans.

Short-term borrowings are typically categorized under current liabilities, while long-term debt is classified under non-current liabilities. Furthermore, long-term debt may include secured loans and unsecured loans, which are backed by collateral or issued based on the borrower’s creditworthiness, respectively.

Example: Bharti Airtel has short-term borrowings of 5,341.40 crore and long-term borrowings of 151,569 crore (secured loans + unsecured loans). This means that Bharti Airtel has borrowed 5,341.40 crore that is due for repayment within one year, which represents its short-term debt. Additionally, it has borrowed 151,569 crore that is due for repayment over a period exceeding one year, which represents its long-term debt. Bharti Airtel utilizes both types of debt to finance its operations, with short-term debt addressing immediate financing needs and long-term debt funding larger investments or strategic initiatives.
