RBI deadline for NPA

Close to 70 large stressed assets accounting to ₹3.8 trillion must come up with a resolution plan by August 27 (Monday). Banks can either finalize a resolution plan or opt for bankruptcy proceedings. However banks choose to opt out of NCLT proceedings owing to large haircuts.

RBI sent a circular directing the banks on resolution plans by granting them 180 days timeline. Failing which they will be forced to initiate bankruptcy proceedings.
