  2. the details of total amount of NPAs recovered in Public Sector Banks after implementation of IBC, Bank-wise?

 

ANSWER

To be answered by

THE MINISTER OF STATE IN THE MINISTRY OF FINANCE

(SHRI SHIV PRATAP SHUKLA)

(a) and (b): With the coming into effect of the provisions related to Corporate Insolvency Resolution Process (CIRP) under the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code, 2016 (IBC) on 1.12.2016, there has been significant improvement in credit culture across the financial sector, including in Public Sector Banks (PSBs). IBC has provided for taking over of the management of the affairs of the corporate debtor at the outset of the CIRP. Coupled with debarment of wilful defaulters and persons associated with NPA accounts from CIRP, this has effected a fundamental change in the creditor-debtor relationship for a clean and robust resolution ecosystem and strengthening credit discipline. While IBC has facilitated and expedited the process of resolution, in order to avoid insolvency proceedings in NCLT, debtors have also started timely repayment, and have settled loans that had become overdue even outside CIRP/IBC.

Subsequent to the provisions relating to CIRP under IBC coming into effect, as per Reserve Bank of India data on global operations, PSBs have recovered (including recovery in written-off accounts) an aggregate amount of Rs. 1,93,231 crore during the period from 1.1.2017 to 31.12.2018 (provisional data), including record recovery of Rs. 97,151 crore in the first three quarters of the current financial year. Bank-wise details are at Annex.
