How to Mitigate NPAs and Improve Chances of Successful Debt Recovery?
In November 2021, RBI declared that loan accounts can be upgraded to ‘standard’ asset only if entire arrears of interest and principal are paid by the borrower.
December 2021, RBI released the Financial Stability Report, wherein Macro stress tests for credit risk indicated that the Gross NPA ratio of SCB (Scheduled Commercial Banks) may rise up to 8.1% by Sep 2022 under the baseline scenario and to 9.5% under a severe stress scenario.
In view of these circulars, our product team could not be any less excited and enthusiastic about enhancing, upgrading, and redefining fintech solutions to deliver a more seamless customer experience (CX) which is 100% compliant with the new norms and market centric.
