RBI likely to push for resolution of bad loans worth around Rs.8 trillion by March 2019: Assocham

Efforts of govt & RBI, turnaround in economic cycle to help

by Janhavi Behere

The RBI is expected to push for resolution of bad loans worth around Rs.8 trillion by March 2019, as per a study by Assocham. The report titled ‘NPAs Resolution: Light at the end of tunnel by March 2019’ has stated that the NPAs mess would largely be resolved by the first quarter of FY20 due to the resolute steps by the government and the RBI along with a turnaround in the economic cycle. The report pointed out that a look at the balance sheet of banks indicates that they are not in position to do fresh corporate lending that is necessary for pushing subdued private sector investment. In FY17, 27 PSBs collectively made an operating profit of Rs.1.5 trillion, but after accounting for the provisions of bad loans net operating profit slipped to a paltry Rs.5.7 billion.
