NPA recovery in India

On December 28, 2018, RBI released the ‘Statistical Tables Relating to Banks in Inda, 2017-18′. I just quickly browsed the table-headers online and looked at NPA recoveries in India :’ NPAs of Scheduled Commercial Banks Recovered through Various Channels’. The trend has not been good. In that sense, the implementation of the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code (IBC) has been very timely. It may have initial troubles, changes and resistance, etc.

Which momentous change would go unchallenged or has gone unchallenged by entrenched interests? The table below shows the percentage recovery (col. (2)); percentage recovered through SARFAESI Act (Col. (3)) and the fourth column is the amount referred to the various sources for recovery – Debt Recovery Tribunals, Lok Adalats and SARFAESI Act. The recovery % are proportions of these amounts (Col. (4)).

Let us see how these numbers evolve in 2017-18 and later, after IBC becomes accepted and established. Clearly, the table shows that IBC had not come a day too soon!
