ALERT: Banking Sector: RBI new NPA norms, more flexibility and acceleration in resolution process – Positive read thru for Banks

Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has come out with a revised framework for resolving stressed assets wherein lenders have been given a 30-day period on whether to label an account as a non-performing asset.  The central bank has made it voluntary for lenders to take defaulters to the bankruptcy court and the framework now applies to a larger universe of lenders, which includes small banks and non-banking finance companies (NBFCs). The code also introduces penal provisions for lenders, for resolution plans that are not implemented. Hence, a lender will have to set aside 20% more provisions if the plan is not implemented within 210 days from the date of default and 35% if not implemented within 365 days of default.


View: Positive read thru for banks. The revised framework provides more flexibility for timely resolution. Also, the uncertainty which had come up after the Supreme Court striking down the erstwhile Feb 12 circular, has ended and thus will be seen as positive.
