“This is positive as it comes at a time when NBFCs are facing liquidity issue, and the capital will help some banks to be kept out of PCA so that lending can pick up and increase market share of public sector banks specially the recent banks which have exited PCA. We have BUY rating on Allahabad Bank, Bank of India and Oriental Bank of Commerce,”said Sameer Kalra – Equity Research Analyst at Target Investing.
Earlier in December, the government had infused ₹28,615 crore into seven public sector banks through recapitalization bonds.
