The bulk of India’s soured loans are owed to state-run Banks that dominate the banking system. Criminal investigations into some defaults, in which former bank bosses have been arrested, have made today’s managers fearful that bad lending decisions might come back to haunt them. Government has recently announced PSBs reforms agenda for responsive and responsible banking, which encapsulates a synergistic approach for ensuring prudential and clean lending, better customer service, enhanced credit availability, focus on micro, small and medium enterprises and better governance.
