RBI to reconstitute oversight committee to deal with bad loans
The Reserve Bankwill reconstitute the oversight committee (OC) under its aegis to operationalise the banking ordinance for resolving the issue of bad loans that have soared to over Rs 8 lakh crore.
The central bank said it has been decided to reconstitute the OC under the aegis of the central bank and also proposed to enlarge the committee to include more members so that it can constitute requisite benches to deal with the volume of cases referred.
The existing OC, which has two members, was constituted by the Indian Banks’ Association (IBA).
Outlining the action plan to implement the Banking Regulation (Amendment) Ordinance, 2017, the RBI said it is also working on a framework to facilitate an “objective and consistent” decision-making process for cases that may be referenced for resolution under the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code, 2016 (IBC).
