The Finance Ministry has expressed concern over the low rate of recovery from written-off accounts. The ministry said that public sector banks should increase it to 40 per cent, sources have informed.

The rate of recovery is 15 percent –

At present the rate of recovery from written off accounts is less than 15 percent. Public Sector Banks (PSUs) have been able to recover only 14 per cent of the amount written off in the last five years ending March 2022. During this, a total of Rs 7.34 lakh crore has been written off. Out of this, PSBs recovered Rs 1.03 lakh crore.’

There will be a meeting with the officials of the government bank –

Sources said that it seems that after writing off the bad loans, the banks become complacent about the recovery from those non-performing assets (NPAs). He said that this level of recovery is not acceptable. Also more recovery from written off accounts directly increases their profits and improves capital. Sources said the Department of Financial Services would soon hold a meeting with senior officials of public sector banks to review the position on the issue.

What is NPA?

NPA means Non Performing Asset means stuck debt. In simple words, you can say that after taking the loan, when the lender is not able to repay the installment, then the money of the banks gets stuck. First an attempt is made to deposit this amount towards the bank but later it is declared as NPA.

RBI informed-

As per the guidelines of the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) and the policy approved by the boards of directors of banks, non-performing assets (NPAs) have been written off from the books of the respective banks by writing them off. It also includes NPAs for which full provisioning was made.
