The Prudential Norms for Income Recognition. They have adopted these guidelines for the purpose of Income Recognition and Assets Classification from the accounting year 199596. The Committee examined the issues and recommended that a policy of Income Recognition should be objective and based on record of recovery rather than on subjective considerations. Over the period this problem has aggravated alarmingly and therefore needs urgent remedial actions. have played a crucial role in the socio. in the year 1991. IFCI.Narsimham to examine and give recommendation for Income Recognition.1993. INDIAN BANKS FUNCTIONALLY diverse and geographically widespread. On the basis of the recommendations of the Narsimhan Committee. Separate guidelines were also issued by the RBI on Prudential Norms to Non-Banking Financial Companies in June. they have been made applicable in a phased manner for RRBs. Banks are under growing pressure to bring down their NPAs so as to improve their performance and viability.1997. Assets Classification and Provisioning in April. so in this context a good number of circular instruction/guidelines have been issued by bank/Reserve Bank of India. 1994 and to Regional Rural banks in March. guidelines were issued by the Reserve Bank of India in March.03. guidelines relating to provisioning for RRBs have been made effective from the financial' year ended 31. Although most of-the guidelines relating to RRBs are similar to that of Commercial Banks. 1994 to All India Financial Institutions viz. Similarly.economic progress of the country. Asset Classification and Provisioning have come into effect from the accounting year 31. What is bothering the bankers today is the management of Non-performing Assets. The definition of NPAs is also gradually becoming tough for RRBs to cover all advances like Commercial Banks. AXIS Bank and IIBI. RBI had issued guidelines to all Scheduled Commercial Banks on Income Recognition.

Thus. which arises from the failure of borrower. Non-recovery of loans along with interest forms a major hurdle in the process of credit cycle. Granting of credit for economic activities is the prime duty of banking. Credit risk involves inability or unwillingness of customer or counterpart to meet commitments in relation to lending once a loan is overdue and ceases to yield income it would become a Non Performing Asset. borrowings and recycling of funds received back from borrowers constitute a major part of funding credit dispensation activity. but banks can always aim to keep the losses at a low level. However lending also carries a risk called credit risk. The problem of Non Performing Assets [NPAs] in banks and financial institutions has been a matter of grave concern not only for the banks but also the real economy in general. fee income and investment and the most prominent assumed risk is credit risk. Despite various correctional steps administered to solve and end this . Lending is generally encouraged because it has the effect of funds being transferred from the system to productive purposes. Though complete elimination of such losses is not possible. Return comes in the form of loan interest. as NPAs can choke further expansion of credit which would impede the economic growth of the country. Any bottleneck in the smooth flow of credit is bound to create adverse repercussions in the economy. these loan losses affect the bank’s profitability on a large scale. For banks good loans are the most profitable assets. The positive results of the chain of measures affected under banking reforms by the Government of India and RBI in terms of the two Narasimhan Committee Reports in this contemporary period have been neutralized by the ill effects of this surging threat. NPAs are not therefore the concern of only lenders but also the public at large. which results into economic growth. Non-performing Asset (NPA) has emerged since over a decade as an alarming threat to the banking industry in our country sending distressing signals on the sustainability and insurability of the affected banks. For most customers.types of borrowers for many different purposes. Apart from raising resources through fresh deposits. Proper management and speedy disposal of NPAs is one of the most critical tasks of banks today. bank credit is the primary source of available debt financing.

private sector banks have been stealing market share in retail deposits and the corporate fee business from public sector banks.

SBI currently holds 74% equity in the joint venture.. yet another emerging trend is that of foreign banks promoting NBFCs to benefit from regulatory flexibility available to such entities in areas like absence of statutory liquidity ratio and cash reserve ratio requirements. viz. fund management. merchant banking.

steady growth in gross domestic product should help improve the banks’ asset quality and increase corporate lending. . Going forward. as they moved to the 90-day norm for recognising and provisioning for NPAs. however. and services segments. thereby improving their capitalization levels. the treasury gains enabled significant provisioning to be made with the result that net NPAs for most public sector banks are now less than 3%. The securitization and reconstruction of financial assets and enforcement of security interest (Sarfaesi) Act should also help banks in limiting slippages and improving NPA recoveries. They need to reorient their staff and effectively utilize technology platforms to retain customers and reduce costs. The steady accruals to net worth and falling non-performing asset levels have resulted in an improvement in the capitalization position of banks in recent years. small and medium enterprises. Though slippages to NPAs and provisioning were high for some banks in FY2004. Better Capitalization levels Banks have demonstrated a fair amount of flexibility in raising fresh equity capital through public issues in recent years.Asset quality to improve Banks have not yet fully resolved the stress in the asset quality of their legacy corporate loan portfolios. Challenges ahead Competition from new private sector and foreign banks remains a key challenge for public sector banks. They also need to fortify their credit risk management systems to mitigate the risks arising from small-ticket lending to the retail.

Mergers among PSBs would create banks with even larger balance sheets and customer base.Consolidation and emergence of universal banking groups The cap on foreign ownership of banks has already been raised from 49% to 74%. the integration process in such mergers is expected to be complex and time long drawn. The new private and foreign banks will continue to gain market share from public sector banks because of their efficient cost structures. The competition in the sector could get further intensified if the 10% cap on voting rights is also relaxed. the emergence of newer players would be restricted if the private ownership of banks is capped at low levels. Strategic alliances between banks and other financial sector players such as insurance companies and mutual funds are also likely as banks attempt to enhance their product range. and hence political scenario will impact the timing and permutations possible. New private sector banks are expanding their geographical coverage and making inroads into government business. These would also be driven by GoI due to provisions of Banking Companies (Acquisition and Transfer of Undertakings) Act 1969. However. . focused marketing approach and operational freedom. However. technological edge. leverage on economies of scale and reduce costs.

Definition of NPAs (NON -PERFORMING ASSETS) An asset. 2001. including a leased asset. i. becomes non-performing when it ceases to generate income for the bank. Interest and/or installment of principal remains overdue for two harvest seasons but for a period not exceeding two half years in the case of an advance granted for agriculture purposes . Due to the improvements in the payment and settlement systems. up gradation of technology in the banking sector. a NPA shall be an advance where. it was decided to dispense with the ‘past due’ concept. The account remains ‘our of order’ for a period of more than 180 days. recovery climate. Accordingly. with effect from 31st March. A ‘non performing asset’ was defined as a credit facility in respect of which the interest and / or installment of principal had remained ‘past due’ for a specified period of time. The specified period was reduced in a phased manner as under: Year ending March 31 1993 1994 1995 Onwards Specified period Four Quarters Three Quarters Two quarters An amount due under any credit facility is treated as ‘past due’ when it has not been paid within 30 days from the due date. as from that date. Interest and/or installment of principal remain overdue for a period of more than 180 days in respect of a term loan ii. etc. in respect of an overdraft/cash credit iii.

from 31st March. Any amount to be received remains overdue for a period of more than 180 days in respect of other accounts. . it has been decided to adopt the ’90 days’ overdue norm for identification of NPAs. ‘Overdue’ Any amount due to the bank under any credit facility is ‘overdue’ if it is not paid on the due date fixed by the bank. With a view to move towards international best practices. ‘Out of Order’ Status An account should be treated as ‘out of order’ if the outstanding balance remains continuously in excess of the sanctioned limit/drawing power. but there are no credits continuously for six months as on the date of Balance Sheet or credits are not enough to cover the interest debited during the same period. 2004.iv. these accounts should be treated as ‘out of order’. In cases where the outstanding balance in the principal operating account is less than the sanctioned limit/drawing power.

Guidelines for Classification of NPAs Broadly speaking.Classification of NPAs Banks are required to classify NPAs further into the following three categories based on the period for which the asset has remained non-performing and the reliability of the dues: i. Such assets will have well defined credit weakness that jeopardize the liquidation of the debt and are characterized by the distinct possibility that the bank will sustain a loss. Banks should establish appropriate internal systems to eliminate the tendency to delay or postpone the identification of NPAs. classification should be done taking into account the degree of well defined credit weaknesses and the extent of dependence on collateral security for realization of dues. iii. Loss Assets: A loss asset is one where a loss has been identified by the bank or. Sub-standard Assets: A sub-standard asset is one which has remained NPA for a period less than or equal to 18 months. . especially in respect of high value accounts. or the current market value of the security charged is not enough to ensure recovery of the dues to the banks in full. It has all the weaknesses inherent to a sub-standard asset with the added characteristic that the collection or liquidation in full – on the basis of currently known facts – is highly questionable and improbable. In such cases. Doubtful Assets: A Doubtful Asset which has remained NPA for a period exceeding 18 months. internal or external auditors but the amount has not been written off wholly. ii. the current net worth of the borrower.

as it is difficult to envisage only a solitary facility becoming a problem credit and not others. the realizable value of the security is less than 50% of that assessed by the bank during acceptance) the account may be classified as NPA. • Asset classification should be borrower-wise and not facility-wise: If a single facility to a borrower is classified as NPA. others should also be classified the same way. • Advances under consortium arrangements: Classification here should be based on the recovery record of the individual member banks. • Accounts regularize near about the balance sheet date: These accounts should be handled with care and without scope for subjectivity. .• Accounts with temporary deficiencies: These should be classified based on the past recovery records. Where the account indicates inherent weakness based on available data. it should be deemed as an NPA. • Accounts where there is erosion in the value of the security: If there is a significant (i.e.

NPA SOME ASPECTS AND ISSUES 1. All this requires greater efforts and teamwork. every effort be made at all levels to cut down the NPAs. . 3. NPAs adversely affect the wealth condition of the branch advances as also the profitability of the branch. Doubtful or loss assets. 4. effective measures are initiated to get full recovery and where this is not possible. This issue has attracted attention of public as also of international financial institutions and has gained further prominence in the wake of transparency and disclosure measures initiated by RBI during recent years. the Branch Manager has to take all the necessary steps to get the dues recovered there-under to maintain the good health of advances and the higher profitability at the-Branch. This requires management of NPAs in such a Planned and scientific manner that the percentage of NPAs to the total advances will be minimum. the various means are to be initiated to get rid off the NPAs from the branch books. 2. The Branch has to incur cost in supervision and follow up of such advances. The Branch 'has to pay interest to central office on outstanding classified as NPA. Some of the reasons for this are as under: (a) (b) (c) (d) 5. It is. Provision has to be made on NPAs at Bank level. The NPA Management Policy document of SBI lays down to contain net NPAs to less than 5% of bank's total loan assets in confirmity with the international standard. NPA may be Sub standard. The NPAs of banks in India are considered to be at higher levels than those in other countries. 6) Once the assets are classified as NPA. Under Income Recognition. It is essential to keep a constant watch over the non-performing assets not just to keep it performing but also that once they become non-performing. Interest cannot be applied on the loan accounts classified as NPAs. Assets Classification and provisioning. therefore necessary that as per guidelines provided in NPA Management Policy document.

It would.RECOGNITION OF INCOME ON NON-PERFORMING LOANS (NPLS) Stricter regulations have been laid down by supervisory authorities in many countries with regard to income recognition on Non-Performing Loans (NPLs). therefore. Previously accrued. economic and institutional science. Failure to do so would overstate income. meanwhile major changes have taken place in the domestic. upgrading technology and human resource development. It is recommended that an asset be classified as doubtful if it is in the sub standard category for 18 months in the first instance and eventually for 12 months as loss if it . but uncollected interest is reversed out of income. explaining the accounting policies followed with regard to recognition of income on NPLs. streamlining procedures. be useful. NARSIMHAN COMMITTEE'S RECOMMENDATIONS Committee on Financial System (CFS) Narsimhan committee which reported in 1991. 'doubtful' and 'loss']. Uncollected interest is normally put in a memorandum account. a) b) To strength the foundation of financial system. c) 1. The suspension of interest payments is required on loans that are classified as 'non-performing' ['substandard'. Committee has presented second generation reforms. Any uncollected interest payments on NPLs are considered non-accrued interest. if the accounts carry a footnote. NPLs are restored on an accrual basis only after full settlement has been made on all delinquent principal and interest. indicating the movement towards global integration of financial services. Related to this. Structural changes in the system.

There is no denying the fact that any effort at financial restructuring in the form of having off NPAs portfolio from the books of the corporation or measures to initiate the impact of high level of NPAs must go hand with operational restructuring. 3. 4. With regard to income recognition in India. income stops occurring when interest/installment of principal is not paid within 180 days. These targets cannot be achieved in the absence of measure to tackle the problem of backlong NPAs on one time basis and the implementation of strict prudential norms and management efficiency.has been so identified but not written off. may be brought into force in a phased manner. The committee believes that objective should be to reduce the average level of net NPAs for all bank's to below 5% by the year 2000 and 3% by 2002. we should . Direct credit has a proportionately higher share in NPA portfolio of corporations and has been one of the factors in erosion in the quality of asset portfolio. 2. 5. Corporations and FIs should avoid the practice of "ever greening" by making fresh advances to their troubled constituents only with a view to settling interest dues and avoiding classification of the loans in question as NPAs. the current practice may continue. The committee notes that the regulatory and supervisory authorities are paying particular attention to such breaches in the adherence to the spirit of the NPA definitions and are taking appropriate corrective action. which is important segment of national economy but on commercial considerations and on basis of credit worthiness. Given the special needs of these sectors. Government feels reluctant to accept the recommendation for reducing the scope of directed credit under priority sector because timy sector of industry and small businesses have problems with regard to obtaining credit and some remaining may be necessary for this sector. However. Cleaning up the balance sheets of banks would thus make sense only if simultaneous steps are taken to prevent of limit the reemergence of new NPAs. 6. There is a continuing need of Financial Corporations to extend Credit to SSI sector. A poverty alleviation and employment generation schemes. which should be regarded as the minimum. These norms.

It should be encouraged to adopt statistical risk management techniques like value at risk in respect of balance sheet term which are susceptible to market price fluctuation. Computerization has to be recognized as an indispensable tool for improvement in customer service. 7. greater efficiency in information technology. the tiny sector of industry. 9. As an incentive to Bank is to make specific provision. small business and transport operators. Internal audit and internal inspection systems should be strengthened. Forex rate volatility and interest rate changes. the institution and operation of better control systems. 12. rural artisans and other weaker sections. State Financial Corporations at present are over regulated and over administered. This calls for some re-examination and the present relevance of directed credit programme ablest in respect of those who are able to stand on their own feet and to whom the directed credit programmes with the element of interest concessionality that has accompanied has become a source of economic rent. It is recommended that directed credit sector be redefined to comprise the small and marginal farmers. Banks should pay greater attention to asset liability management to avoid mismatch and to cover. village and cottage industry. among others. The credit target for this redefined . The main issues with regard to operations of Bank’s are to ensure operational flexibility and measure of competition and adequate internal autonomy in matters of loan sanctioning and internal administration. the consideration be given to making such provisions tax deductible. prescribe certain normative models for market risk management. 11. 8. There is a need for a greater use of computerized system than at present. 13. the ultimate objective should be that of building up their models and RBI blacklisting them for their validity on a periodical basis. liquidity and interest rate risks. Supervision should be based on evolving prudential norms and regulations which should be adhered to rather than excessive control over administrative and other aspects of organisation and functioning.move towards international Practices in this regard and introduce the norm of 90 days in a phased manner by the 2002. 10. While the RBI and IDBI may initially.

This is to be done in phased manner. The committee believes that the balance sheets of banks and FIs should be made more transparent and full disclosure made in Balance sheet. . 14.priority sector should hence forth be fixed at 10% of aggregate credit which would be broadly in line with the credit flows to these sectors at present.

Gupta (1997) has also concluded that NPAs on protifability of banks and leads to liquidity crunch and slow down in the growth in GDP etc. Murthy (1988) has examined that default bring down the return accruing and to them. Verma (1999) has concluded that high level of NPAs leads to operational failure of the bank. Berger and young (1997) has examined the relationship between problem loan and bank efficiency by employing Granger-causality technique and found that high level of problem loans cause banks of increase spending on monitoring. This puts bank on stronger ground in salvaging sticky loan         . reduces effective rate of interest and reduces the funds’ recalculation and increase their dependence on external sources thereby increasing the costs. ACCORDING TO S. Kaveri(1995) has also examined the impact of NPAs on profitability by taking profit making and six loss making banks and concluded that loss making banks maintained higher NPAs in the loan portfolio which led them to show losses. Toor (1994) analysed that poor recovery management leads to reduction in yield on advanced that poor recovery management leads to reduction in yield on advances. Kwan and Eisenbeis (1994) also concluded that there is negative relationship between efficiency and problem loans. reduced productivity loss in the credibility and put detrimental impact on the policies of the banks. RAJ KUMAR (2002) the SARFAESI act and the could primarily used as powerful bargaining tool while negotiating with defaulter.REVIEW OF LITERATURE  Das (1990) has compared the various efficiency measures of public sector banks by applying data envelopment analysis model and concluded that the level of NPAs significant negative relationship with efficiency estimates. working out and / or selling off these loans and possibly becomes more diligent in administering the portion of their existing loan portfolio that is currently performing.

day to day changing govt. EXTERNAL FACTORS • Ineffective recovery tribunal The Govt. has set of numbers of recovery tribunals. Thus the bank has to make large amount of provisions in order to compensate those loans. • Natural calamities This is the measure factor. The NPAs in PSB are growing due to external as well as internal factors. Hence the banks that finance those industries ultimately end up with a low recovery of their loans reducing their profit and liquidity. These groups of people should be identified and proper measures should be taken in order to get back the money extended to them as advances and loans. hence end up the fiscal with a reduced profit.REASONS FOR RISE IN NPAs FACTORS FOR RISE IN NPAs The banking sector has been facing the serious problems of the rising NPAs. Mainly ours farmers depends on rain fall for cropping. lack of adequate resources . ineffective management . But the problem of NPAs is more in public sector banks when compared to private sector banks and foreign banks. lack of advance technology . • Wilful Defaults There are borrowers who are able to payback loans but are intentionally withdrawing it. which works for recovery of loans and advances. their by reducing their profitability and liquidity. Policies give birth to industrial sickness. Due to their negligence and ineffectiveness in their work the bank suffers the consequence of non-recover. every now and then India is hit by major natural calamities thus making the borrowers unable to pay back there loans. . Due to irregularities of rain fall the farmers are not to achieve the production level thus they are not repaying the loans • Industrial sickness Improper project handling . which is creating alarming rise in NPAs of the PSBs.

The banks recover the amount by selling of their assets. banking sector gets new policies for its operation. policies With every new govt.• Lack of demand Entrepreneurs in India could not foresee their product demand and starts production which ultimately piles up their product thus making them unable to pay back the money they borrow to operate these activities. Thus it has to cope with the changing principles and policies for the regulation of the rising of NPAs. The rehabilitation plan worked out by the Central govt to revive the handloom sector has not yet been implemented. Honest 3. The repayment of loan depends upon the borrowers: a. Principle of liquidity iii. Reputation of borrower The banker should. So the over dues due to the handloom sectors are becoming NPAs. which covers a minimum label. there fore take utmost care in ensuring that the enterprise or business for which a loan is sought is a . eg.

and ." This is the margin between the cost of resources employed and the return thereform. as heretofore.IMPACT OF NPAS ON BANKS:In portion of the interest income is absorbed in servicing NPA. inability to offer competitive market rates adds to the disadvantage of marketing and building new NPA has affected the profitability. This is the margin between the cost of resources employed and the return therefrom. but at the same time banks are required to make provisions for such NPAS from their current profits. It is also cost absorbing and profit eroding. When the interest rates were directed by RBI. But today in the deregulated market the banks decide their lending rates and borrowing rates. NPAS have a deleterious effect on the return on assets in several ways: • • • They erode current profits through provisioning requirements.NPA is not merely nonremunerative. 1. In other words it is gap between the return on funds deployed (Interest earned on credit and investments) and cost of funds employed (Interest paid on deposits). liquidity and competitive functioning of banks and finally the psychology of the bankers in respect of their disposition towards credit delivery and credit expansion. They require higher provisioning requirements affecting profits and accretion to capital funds and capacity to increase good quality risk assets in future. In the context of severe competition in the banking industry. the weak banks are at disadvantage for leveraging the rate of interest in the deregulated market and securing remunerative business growth. "The spread is the bread for the banks". They result in reduced interest income. The options for these banks are lost. In the competitive money and capital Markets. there was not option for banks. Impact on Profitability "The efficiency of banks is not always reflected only by the size of its balance sheet but by the level of return on its assets. NPAS do not generate interest income for the banks.

Equity issues of nationalized banks that have already tapped the market are now quoted at a discount in the secondary market. SBI Group incurred a total amount of Rs.04. . Other bans hesitate to approach the market to rise new issues.2001. The enormous provisioning of NPA together with the holding cost of such non-productive assets over the years has acted as a severe drain on the profitability of the SBI Group. 2300 Crores annually. a sizeab business. This has alternatively forced SBI Group to borrow heavily from the debt market to build Tier II Capital to meet capital adequacy norms putting severe pressure on their profit margins. There is at times a tendency among some of the banks to understate the level of NPAs in order to reduce the provisioning and boost up bottom lines. It would only postpone the process. (reckoning average cost of funds at 6% plus 1% service charge) the net NPA of Rs. 32632 Croces absorbs a recurring holding ost of Rs. To this extent the problem is contained but a what cost? This costly remedy is made at the sacrifice of building healthy reserves for future capital adequacy. Considering the average provisions made for the last 8 years which works out to average of Rs.2% of net advances. Considering the minimum cost of holding NPAs at 7% p. asset quality has been placed as one of the most important parameters in the measurement of a bank's performance under the CAMELS supervisory rating system of RBI. 3300 crores from annum. In turn SBI Group are seen as poor performers and unable to approach the market for raising additional capital. set in asset-liability mismatches.a.

though such income has substantially covered the operating expenses (between 80 to 90%) there is still a deficit left. it will still break even in terms of operating profit and not return an operating loss. In that event the spread factor i. the difference between the gross interest income and interest cost will constitute its operating profits. a positive burden.e. many nationalised banks have little option and they are unable to lower lending rates competitively.In the face of the deregulated banking industry. The net profit is the amount of the operating profit minus the amount of provisions to be made including for taxation. who had issued the Recapitalization Bonds to the weak banks to sustain their capital adequacy under a bailout package. as a wider spread is necessitated to cover cost of NPA in the face of lower income from off balance sheet business yielding non-interest income. Its obligation for provisioning requirements is within bounds. 2001. will be revealing to prove this statement. 2. Interest on Recapitalization Bonds is a income earned form the Government. On account of the burden of heavy NPA. (Net NPA/Net Advances is 1. when the banks are able to earn adequate amount of non-interest income to cover their entire operating expenses i. Non-interest income fully absorbs the operating expenses of this banks in the current financial year for the first 9 months.

but have resorted to II-Tier capital in the debt market or looking to recapitalistion by Government of India. The fear of NPA permeates the psychology of bank managers in the SBI Group in entertaining new projects for credit expansion. The fear psychosis also leads to excessive security-consiousness in the approach towards lending to the small and medium sized credit customers. Impact on Outlook of Bankers towards Credit Delivery. They have not been able to build additional capital needed for business expansion through internal generations or by tapping the equity market. In the world of banking the concepts of business and risks are inseparable. Without accepting risk. Accept justifiable risks and implements de-risking steps. Business is an exercise of balancing between risk and reward. Impact on Liquidity of the SBI Group Though SBI Group are able to meet norms of Capital Adequacy.addition to the heavy burden they have to bear for servicing NPA by way of provisioning and holding cost as under: • • Their operating expenses are higher due to surplus manpower employed. There is insistence on provision of collateral security. This is due to failure to develop off balance sheet business through innovative banking products. Wage costs total assets is much higher to PSBs compared to new private banks or foreign banks. This has affected adversely credit growth compared to growth of deposits. RBI has indicated the ideal position as Zero percent Net NPA. the facts that their net NPA in the average is as much as 7% is a potential threat for them. sometimes up to 200% value of the advance. 3. as per RBI guidelines. there can be no reward. resulting in a low C/D Ratio around 50 to 54% for the industry.1% as at March 2001. and consequently due to a feeling of assumed protection on account of holding adequate security (albeit over- . Their earnings from sources other than interest income are meagre. Even granting 3% net NPA within limits of tolerance the SBI Group are holding an uncomfortable burden at 7. The psychology of the banks today is to insulate themselves with zero percent risk and turn lukewarm to fresh credit. 2.

Impact on other Variables: High level of NPAs also leads to squeezing of interest spread. 5. compromise. write off or in preparing DICGC claim papers etc. It is well know that the existence of collateral security at best may convert the credit extended to productive sectors into an investment against real estate. Further blocked assets and real estate represent the most illiquid security and NPA in such advances has the tendency to persist for a long duration. Banks are required to bring their own capital by issuing share to the public. Cost of funds is increased because due to non-availability of sufficient internal sources they have to rely on external sources to fulfill their future financial requirements. whereas high level of NPAs leads to lower profits hence less or no profits available for equity shareholders hence lower EPS and fall in the value of share. a tendency towards laxity in the standards of credit appraisal comes to the fore. Instead of devoting time for planning for development through more credit and mobilization of resources the branch staff would primarily be engaged in preparing a large value of returns and statements relating to sub-standard. Impact on Productivity: High level of NPAs effect the productivity of the banks by increasing the cost of funds and by reducing the efficiency of banks employees. waivement of legal action. when asset becomes an NPA for the first time it adversely affects the spread by not contributing to the interest income and from the second year onwards it will have its impact on the bottom line of the balance sheet because of provisioning to be made for it and not have incremental effect on the spread. doubtful and loss assets. SBI Group have reached a dead-end of the tunnel and their future prosperity depends on an urgent solution for handling this hovering threat. does not encourage liberal capital support to be given to banks.

Reputed foreign suppliers do not accept letter of credit opened bi Indian banks or confine their transaction to top Indian banks only. Low market value of shares has also forced the banks to borrow heavily debt market to build Tier II capital to meet capital adequacy norms. Moreover. The eligibility of a bank to draw refinance from NABARD is linked to the %age of recovery to demand in respect of direct. It also leads to loss of trust of foreign suppliers. Net NPA level below 9%. Qualitative aspects of the Micro Level Impact of NPAs: High incidence of loan defaults shakes the confidence of general public in the soundness of banking setup and indirectly effects the capacity of the banking system to mop up the deposits. They are floating their subsidiaries to manage mutual funds. It is also biggest threat for capital account convertibility. Due to fear of NPAa banks are being taken away from the basic function for which these were established it is becoming more & more risky and less remunerative. owned funds of Rs.public sector banks were traded on the NSE out of which share value of three PSBs have decreased. It is a blot on the credibility of the banking system. Good money is spent to recover bad money. Due to high cost. of years in which a banks branch remains in a particular category of default. Deterioration in the quality of loan assets and inability to come with new products makes the Indian banks uncompetitive globally.

burden of NPAs is to be borne by the society as a whole. Once the credit to various sectors of the economy slow down. it comes out of either Govt. Moreover. the economy is badly hit. When capital support is given to PSB on A/c of losses booked and/ or erosion of capital due to NPAs. There is slowdown in growth in GDP. holds majority of shares in PSBs in some banks 100% capital is in its hand. the society is bearing the cost of these NPAs. . Some areas of Macro-Economic Impact: It is not only the banks which are affected higher level of NPAs but it is the economy as a whole which pays for it. Further high level of NPAs can result in adding to the inflationary potential in the economy and eroding the viability of the credit system as a whole. and which can be spent on the welfare and development program. budgetary resources or from the public as per Liberalization policy. whether this money is from tax revenues or from the hard earned saving of the investing public.7. Govt. Not only this. in fact. industrial output and fall in the profit margins of the corporate and consequent depression in the market. Banks are not putting enough resource in lending due to fear of default. Any dividend declared would have gone to the Govt.

I would like to recapitulate at this stage. particularly for old and unresolved cases falling under the NPA category. * The broad framework for compromise or negotiated settlement of NPAs advised by RBI in July 1995 continues to be in place. . 25000 and below continues to be in operation and guidelines in pursuance to the budget announcement of the Hon'ble Finance Minister providing for OTS for advances up to Rs. [Public sector banks recovered Rs. 2600 crore by September 2001].GUIDELINES BY RBI Guidelines of Government and RBI for Reduction of NPAs 1. Banks are free to design and implement their own policies for recovery and write-off incorporating compromise and negotiated settlements with the approval of their Boards. The scheme was operative up to September 3. More significant of them. * Specific guidelines were issued in May 1999 to public sector banks for one time non discretionary and non discriminatory settlement of NPAs of small sector. 2001 helped the public sector banks to recover Rs. 668 crore through compromise settlement under this scheme]. * Guidelines were modified in July 2000 for recovery of the stock of NPAs of Rs. 50. Compromise settlement schemes: The RBI/Government of India have been constantly goading the banks to take steps for arresting the incidence of fresh NPAs and have also been creating legal and regulatory environment to facilitate the recovery of existing NPAs of banks. 2000. [The above guidelines which were valid up to June 30.000 in respect of NPAs of small/marginal farmers are being drawn up. * An OTS Scheme covering advances of Rs. 5 crore and less as on 31 March 1997. The policy framework suggested by RBI provides for setting up of an independent Settlement Advisory Committees headed by a retired Judge of the High Court to scrutinise and recommend compromise proposals.

Debt Recovery Tribunals have now been empowered to organize Lok Adalats to decide on cases of NPAs of Rs. The progress through this channel is expected to pick up in the coming years particularly looking at the recent initiatives taken by some of the public sector banks and DRTs in Mumbai. 40. 1864.30 crore.71 crore pertaining to public sector banks since inception of DRT mechanism and till September 30. protection and preservation of property are expected to provide necessary teeth to the DRTs and speed up the recovery of NPAs in the times to come. Lok Adaltas: Lok Adalats help banks to settle disputes involving accounts in 'doubtful" and "loss" category.

I may add that familiarisation programmes have been offered in NIBM at periodical intervals to the presiding officers of DRTs in understanding the complexities of documentation and operational features and other legalities applicable of Indian banking system. I strongly believe that a real breakthrough can come only if there is a change in the repayment psyche of the Indian borrowers 5. It is our experience that these measures had not contributed to any perceptible recoveries from the defaulting entities. RBI also publishes a list of borrowers (with outstanding aggregating Rs.84 crore pending before them as on September 30. and notify borrowers who default to honour the decree passed against them. 1 crore and above) against whom suits have been filed by banks and FIs for recovery of their funds. RBI had advised the public sector banks to examine all cases of willful default of Rs 1 crore and above and file suits in such cases. Recovery action against large NPAs: After a review of pendency in regard to NPAs by the Hon'ble Finance Minister. with as many as 33049 cases involving Rs. 42988. as on 31st March every year. 4. However. and file criminal cases in regard to willful defaults. Circulation of information on defaulters: The RBI has put in place a system for periodical circulation of details of willful defaults of borrowers of banks and financial institutions. RBI on its part has suggested to the Government to consider enactment of appropriate penal provisions against obstruction by borrowers in possession of attached properties by DRT Receivers.On their part RBI and . Board of Directors are required to review NPA accounts of Rs. 2001. 1 crore and above with special reference to fixing of staff accountability. I would like the banks to institute appropriate documentation system and render all possible assistance to the DRTs for speeding up decisions and recovery of some of the well collateralised NPAs involving large amounts.Looking at the huge task on hand. they serve as negative basket of steps shutting off fresh loans to these defaulters. This serves as a caution list while considering requests for new or additional credit limits from defaulting borrowing units and also from the directors/proprietors/partners of these entities.

This. 20 crore and above with the banks and financial institutions. if any. Corporate Debt Restructuring (CDR): Corporate Debt Restructuring mechanism has been institutionalised in 2001 to provide a timely and transparent system for restructuring of the corporate debts of Rs. would prevent those who take advantage of lack of system of information sharing amongst lending institutions to borrow large . 6. The CDR process would also enable viable corporate entities to restructure their dues outside the existing legal framework and reduce the incidence of fresh NPAs. I hope. Deputy Governor.

A number of loopholes provided the borrower with opportunities to delay or ignore repayment of loans. such as waiver in repayment only added to these problems. as carried out at the time of providing the loan and at the time of loan recovery. Swamping of DRTs with cases: Once DRTs were established to quicken the pace of recovery procedures. banks tend to find that there is a major gap in the valuation of the security. The pending number of cases with the DRTs increased manifold during the period 1993-2002. There were provisions under various acts which hampered the smooth takeover and sale of secured assets. The populist policies of the national level politicians. Inadequate security and Erosion in value of security: Generally. 2. The legal process could take years to be completed. with the borrower having ample scope for delaying the takeover of assets. Political interferences: Political interference in the day -to-day functioning of public sector banks created a number of problems for them. the DRTs were soon drowned in the ever increasing number of cases. it may further deteriorate by almost 10-50% if quick action is not taken for its immediate sale.PROBLEMS LOAN RECOVERY 1. 3. the pace of recovery improved quite a bit. The value of the security has generally deteriorated over the period and according to experts. Slow legal procedure: Before the establishment of DRTs in 1993. the banks had to approach the normal courts to recover their dues."there is no difference between equity and debt . 4.you never have to repay either of them ". During this period. However. . it was said by some unscrupulous businessmen that .

However.The procedure of financial reconstruction can take a number of years together. it is not possible to undertake any recovery proceeding against the company . If the defaulter's company is declared sick and taken for financial reconstruction under BIFR. In addition. mortgagee can take possession of mortgaged property where there is specific provision in mortgage deed and it is situated in the towns of Mumbai. thereby delaying recovery to a great extent. In other cases.5. intervention of the court is required. . mortgagee can take possession of mortgaged property and sell the same without the intervention of the Court only in the case of English Mortgage. Transfer of property Act. Misuse of BIFR/SICA: This was one of the favourite methods of willful defaulters to delay repayment. English mortgage: Under provisions of Section 69 of Transfer of Property Act. this is very slow and time consuming process and by the time bank /FI is able to get possession. 6.
