Identify cos that are not viable : RBI Chief

RBI governor Shaktikanta Das asked lenders to proactively identify loans to firms that have turned non-viable but not yet recognised as a non-performing asset (NPA) due to the special dispensation during Covid. The  governor also asked banks to review the usability of capital for absorbing losses during a crisis.

Pointing out that numerous high-frequency indicators are showing that economic recovery is taking hold, Das said that there have been several resolution frameworks announced in the wake of the pandemic. “As the support measures start unwinding, some of these restructured accounts might face solvency issues over the coming quarters. Prudence would warrant proactive recognition of such non-viable firms for pragmatic resolution measures,” said Das.
