There has been a rapid growth in non-performing assets and restructured loans in the Indian banking system. The Reserve Bank of India has amply highlighted the growing challenges of stressed assets management and has drawn up a series of policy measures to help mitigate this issue. The stressed assets situation concerns everyone – banks, policy makers, lenders, and borrowers. So, the entire financial ecosystem of the country is affected by increasing NPAs year on year.
The need of the hour is to understand the implications of insolvency and bankruptcy, help banks methodically restructure or reconstruct their non-performing assets, explore possibilities of recoveries, understand the dynamics of various exit options for lenders, as also critically devise more innovative ways and means at improving liquidity in the market.
Today, there are several factors that are affecting the Indian banking system. Stagnant credit growth and record stressed assets in the past few years continue to remain the most critical concern areas for Indian banks.
According to a McKinsey report "the stressed assets of the Indian banking sector are currently greater than its net-worth, with the potential of putting the entire equity base of banks at risk". The report further states that stressed assets had crossed ₹10 lakh crore in December 2016 but provisioning against these levels is only ₹3 lakh crore.
According to a CRISIL release, the 50 stressed companies, which account are largely from the metals, construction and power industries and account for nearly half of the total non-performing assets in the banking sector. It further estimated that banks have provisioned for only around 40 percent of their exposure to these assets.
Our deteriorating asset quality is now being seen as a huge economic danger for the Indian banking sector. As stressed assets are a combination of NPAs and Restructured Loans and Written Off Assets – the problems and concerns too are multi-fold.
