I. Introduction
The banking industry has undergone a sea change after the first phase of economic liberalization in 1991 and hence credit management. While the primary function of banks is to lend funds as loans to various sectors such as agriculture, industry, personal loans, housing loans etc., in recent times the banks have become very cautious in extending loans. The reason being mounting non-performing assets (NPAs). An NPA is defined as a loan asset, which has ceased to generate any income for a bank whether in the form of interest or principal repayment. As per the prudential norms suggested by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI), a bank cannot book interest on an NPA on accrual basis. In other words, such interests can be booked only when it has been actually received. Therefore, an NPA account not only reduces profitability of banks by provisioning in the profit and loss account, but their carrying cost is also increased which results in excess & avoidable management attention. Apart from this, a high level of NPA also puts strain on a banks net worth because banks are under pressure to maintain a desired level of Capital Adequacy and in the absence of comfortable profit level, banks eventually look towards their internal financial strength to fulfill the norms thereby slowly eroding the net worth.


Literature Review
When a borrower, who is under a liability to pay to secured creditors, makes any default in repayment of secured debt or any installment thereof, the account of borrower is classified as nonperforming assets (NPA) .NPAs cannot be used for any productive purposes because they reflect the application of scarce capital and credit funds. Continued growth in NPA threatens the repayment capacity of the banks and erodes the confidence reposed by them in the banks. In fact high level of NPAs has an adverse impact on the financial strength of the banks who in the present era of globalization, are required to conform to stringent International Standards. “Non Performing Asset” means an asset or account of a borrower, which has been classified by bank or financial institution as substandard, doubtful or loan asset. After nationalization and globalization the initial directive that banks were given was to expand N.R. INSTITUTE OF BUSINESS MANAGEMENT

their branch network, increase the saving rate and extent credits to rural, urban and the most important SSI sectors. No doubt this mandate has been achieved admirably under the regulation of economic reforms initiated in 1991 by the then Finance Minister and present Prime minister Dr. Manmohan Singh. No doubt it would have been incomplete without the overhaul of Indian Banking System. Then all of a sudden focus shifted towards improving quality of assets and better risk management. The Narasimhan committee reports (First report) recommendations are the basis for initiation of the process, which is still continuing. The committee has recommended the enactment of a new legislation for securitization and empowering banks and financial institution to take possession of the securities and do sell them without the intervention of the court. The Narasimham Committee Report is without doubt a major path- breaking piece of work and deserves the support of all who yearn for a more rational and effective banking system in this country. In order to have the proper understanding of NPA menace, it is important to have a brief idea of growth and structural changes that have taken place in the banking sector. The growth of the banking system can be assessed in five phases:- 1) Preliminary Phase(series of birth and death of banks) 2) Business Phase(period between 1949- 19 69) 3) Branching Out Phase(period when commercial banks got nationalized) 4) Consolidated phase(weaknesses and defects were identified) 5) Reforms and Strengthening Phase(1991 to till date) Indian Banking Industry Saddled with High NPAs: Reasons The liberalization policies launched in 1991 opened the doors to the entrepreneurs to setup industries and business, which are largely financed by loans from the Indian banking systems. Business firms and companies fail to pay the principal amount as well as the interest amount (Bad Loan) . In the global economy prevailing today, the vulnerability of Indian businesses has increased. A culture change is crept in where repayment of bank loans is no longer assured. A constant follow up action and vigil are to be exercised by the operating staff. Diversion of funds and willful default has become more common. As per a study published in the RBI bulletin in July 1999, diversion of funds and willful default are found to be the major contributing factors for NPAs in public and private sector banks. Today, the situation looks optimistic with the industry succeeding in overcoming the hurdles faced earlier. The timely restructuring and rehabilitation measures have helped to overcome setbacks and hiccups without seriously jeopardizing their future. The greater transparency and stricter corporate governance methods have significantly raise N.R. INSTITUTE OF BUSINESS MANAGEMENT

the credibility of the corporate sector. The attrition rate in corporate sector has come down. The challenges before the banks in India today are the raising NPAs in the retail sector, propelled by high consumerism and lowering of moral standards. Other Factors: The problem that India faces is not lack of prudential norms but the legal impediments and time consuming nature of asset disposal process , „postponement‟ of the problem in order to report high earnings and to some extent manipulation of by the debtor using political influence. Most of the banks in India are into this malpractices and fraudulent acts. In the process of earning high returns on their investment by the above stated method, the banks become bankrupt or penniless. A vicious effect of the slow legal process is that banks are shying away from risks by investing a greater than required proportion of their assets in the form of sovereign debt paper. The worst part is that the NPA of a private enterprise is both financially and politically undesirable. Earlier bankruptcy Law favored borrowers and law courts were not reliable vehicles. But the circumstances have changed. Laws were passed allowing the creation of asset management companies, foreign equity participation in securitisation and asset backed securitization. Impact of NPAs on Banking Operations: The efficiency of a bank is not reflected only by the size of its balance sheet but also the level of return on its assets. The NPAs do not generate interest income for banks but at the same time banks are required to provide provisions for NPAs from their current profits. The NPAs have deliterious impact in the interest income on the bank, bank profitability because of the providing of the doubtful debts, return on investment of course. NPAs also disturb the Capital Adequacy Ratio (CAV) and economic value addition (EVR) of the banks. It is due to above factors, the public sector banks are faced with bulging NPAs which results in lower income and higher provisioning for doubtful debts and it will make a dent in their profit margin. In this context of crippling effect on banks operation the slew asset quality is placed as one of the most important parameters in the measurement of banks performance under the Camel‟s supervisory rating system of RBI. Whether trading of NPA between Banks illegal or not: The word „trading‟ here means purchasing or selling of NPAs between banks. So assignment or trading falls under the guidelines of Banking Regulation Act (BRA) which makes it legal . But the Gujarat High court has recently held that the buying and selling of non performing assets is illegal. The court has ruled that such an activity is not a part of “banking activity” as contemplated under the Banking Regulation Act, 1949. The court held N.R. INSTITUTE OF BUSINESS MANAGEMENT

cannot be a part of the business of a banking system” The ruling had an impact of sending shockwaves through the backbone of Indian economy and came under the greater scrutiny in academic circles too. SARFAESI ACT was promulgated to regulate the financial assets and enforcement of security interest and for matters connected therewith or incidental thereto. Even RBI considers interest NPA assignment between banks to be a significant tool for resolving the issue of Non Performing Assets and in the interest of banking policy . Thus. The banks in the developed countries do not depend upon this income whereas N. de-facto the assignment of loan (good or bad) amounts to transfer of asset and not debt. the legality of loan purchases is under cloud till now. It is a unique piece of legislation which has far reaching consequences.The decision given by the Honorable Courts in the cases that have been cited below (footnote16) was in favor of “assignment of NPAs between banks. But the judgment is yet to stand the Supreme test of judiciary scrutiny as the aggrieved Banks and concerned regulatory bodies (RBI and Indian Bank Association) have challenged the decision before the Supreme Court. Trading in debts is a speculative form of transaction that is not permissible activity and thus. INSTITUTE OF BUSINESS MANAGEMENT 4 . It is necessary that the banking system is equipped with prudential norms to minimize if not completely avoid the problem of credit risk. All these issues gave the passage of evolution of the Securitization and Reconstruction of Financial Assets and enforcement of Security Interest Act (SARFAESI). giving little chance to the borrowers to explain their views once recovery process is initiated under the legislation.that “Interest transfer of NPAs by banks is illegal and not a part of banking activity under the BR Act. Measures to control NPAs menace a lasting solution to the problem of NPAs can be achieved only with proper credit assessment and risk management mechanism. Effective management of NPA rather than elimination is prudent. I feel the recent pronouncement of the Gujarat High Court has misinterpreted the term „debt‟ from legal as well as accounting point of view. 2002. No doubt this Act was challenged in various courts on ground that it was loaded heavily in favour of lenders. A loan item or the borrower is an asset of a bank and not a debt. Securitization in India is still in a nascent stage but has potential in areas like mortgage Backed securitization. The major problem with the Indian banking system is that they depend largely upon lending and investments. The main purpose of this act is to enable the creditors take possession of the secured assets and to deal with them without the intervention of the court.R. This act has a overriding power over the other legislation. In the interim.

Conclusion The contaminated portfolio is definitely a bane for any bank. The corporate debt restructuring is also one of the methods suggested for the reduction of NPAs. improvement in the managerial efficiency and skill up gradation for proper assessment of credit worthiness It is better to avoid NPAs at the nascent stage of credit consideration by putting in place of rigorous and appropriate credit appraisal mechanisms. that a lasting solution to the problem of NPAs can be achieved only with proper credit assessment and risk management mechanism. It facilitates for limiting of high level of NPAs gradually. all the mechanisms suggested above may prove to be ineffective. It is needless to mention. Without this.R. The problem of non -performing loans created due to systematic banking crisis world over has become acute. It is necessary that the banking system is to be equipped with prudential norms to minimize if not completely to avoid the problem of NPAs. 2) A manager of the borrowers‟ asset taken over by banks or financial institution. The onus for containing the factors leading to NPAs rests with banks themselves. It is possible that average yield on loans and advances net default provisions and services costs do not exceed the average yield on safety securities because of the absence of risk and service cost. Focused measures to help the banking system to realize its NPAs has resulted into the creation of specialized bodies called Asset Management Companies which in India have been named Asset Reconstruction Companies (ARC‟s) The main objective of ARCs is to act as 1) A agent for any bank or financial institution for the purpose of recovering their dues from the borrowers. Its objective is to ensure a timely and transparent mechanism for restructure of corporate debts of viable corporate entities affected by the contributing factors outside the purview of DRT and other legal proceedings for the benefit of concerned. INSTITUTE OF BUSINESS MANAGEMENT 5 .86 percent of income of Indian banks is accounted from interest and the rest of the income is fee based. It puts severe dent on the liquidity and profitability of the bank where it is out of proportion. Ineffective Legal mechanisms and inadequate internal control mechanisms have made this problem grow – quick action has to be taken on both counts so that both the defaulters and the authorizing officer are punished heavily. 4) There have been instances of banks extending credit to doubtful debtors (who deliberately default on debt) and getting kickbacks for the same. 3) The receiver of properties of any bank or financial institution. This will necessitates organizational restructuring. The banker can earn sufficient net margin by investing in safer securities though not at high rate of interest. N.

Socio culture factors also affect the business. They show in which people behave in country. Socio-cultural factors like taboos, customs, traditions, tastes, preferences, buying and consumption habit of people, their language, beliefs and values affect the business. Banking industry is also operates under this social environment and it is also affect by this factor. These factor are changing continuously people‟s life style, their behavior, consumption pattern etc. is changing and also creating opportunities and threat for banking industry. There are some socio-culture factors that affect banking inIndia have been analyzed below.  TRADITIONAL MAHAJAN PRATHA Before the birth of the banks, people of India were used to borrow money local moneylenders, shahukars, shroffs. They were used to charge higher interest and also mortgage land and house. Farmers were exploited by these shahukars. But farmers need money. So, they did not have any choice other than going to shahukar and borrowing money from them in spite of exploitation by these people. But after emergence of banks attitude of people was changed. Traditional mahajan pratha still exist in India specially in rural areas. This affects the banking sector. Rural people afraid to go to bank to borrow money instead they prefer to borrow from shahukar whith whom they have relationships from the time of their fore fathers. Banking infrastructure is also week in some interior areas of India. So, this is reason it still exist.  SHIFT TOWARDS NUCLEAR FAMILY Attitude of people of India is changing. Now, younger generation wants to remain separate from their parents after they get married. Joint families are breaking up. There are many reasons behind that. But banking sector is positively affected by this trend. A family need home consumer durables likefreeze, washing machine, television, bike, car, etc.. so, they demand for these products and borrow from banks. Recently there is boost



in housing finance and vehicle loans. As they do not have money they go for installments. So, banks satisfy nuclear families wants.  CHANGE IN LIFE STYLE Life style of India is changing rapidly. They are demanding high class products. They have become more advanced. People want everything car, mobile, etc.. what their fore father had dreamed for. Now teenagers also have mobile and vehicle. Even middle class people also want to have well furnished home, television, mobile, vehicle and this has opened opportunities for banking secter to tap this change. Every thing is available so it has become easy to purchase anything if you do not have lump sum.  POPULATION Increase in population is one of he important factor, which affect the private sector banks. Banks would open their branches after looking into thepopulation demographics of the area. Percentage of deposit in any branches of banks depends upon the population demographic of that area. The population of India is about 102.90 is expected to reach about 119.70 cores in 2011. About 70% of population is below 35years of age. They are in the prime earning stage and this increase the earning of the banks. Total Deposits mobilized by the Private Sector Banks increased from Rs, 2,52,335 crore as on 31st March 2004 to Rs. 3,12,645 crore as on 31st March 2005. Deposits showed a subdued growth during 2004-05.Income distributions also affects the operations and overall business of private sector banks.  LITERACY RATE Literacy rate in India is very low compared to developed countries. Illiterate people hesitate to transact with banks. So, this impacts negatively on banks. But there is positive side of this as well i.e. illiterate people trust more on banks to deposit their money, they do not have market information. Opportunities in stocks or mutual funds. So, they look bank as their sole and safe alternative.



 TECHNOLOGY IN BANKS Technology plays a very important role in bank‟s internal controlmechanisms as well as services offered by them. It has in fact given new dimensions to the banks as well as services that they cater to and the banks are enthusiastically adopting new technological innovations for devising new products and services.  ATM The latest developments in terms of technology in computer and telecommunication have encouraged the bankers to change the concept of branch banking to anywhere banking. The use of ATM and Internet banking has allowed „anytime, anywhere banking‟ facilities. Automatic voice recorders now answer simple queries, currency accounting machines makes the job easier and self-service counters are now encouraged. Credit card facility has encouraged an era of cashless society. Today MasterCard and Visa card are the two most popular cards used world over. The banks have now started issuing smartcards or debit cards to be used for making payments. These are also called as electronic purse. Some of the banks have also started home banking through telecommunication facilities and computer technology by using terminals installed at customers home and they can make the balance inquiry, get the statement of accounts, give instructions for fund transfers, etc. Through ECS we can receive the dividends and interest directly to our account avoiding the delay or chance of loosing the post.

 IT SERVICES & MOBILE BANKING Today banks are also using SMS and Internet as major tool of promotions and giving great utility to its customers.

 From the above it is observed that net NPA of public sector banks has a declining trend up to year 2005-06 and after that it has a rising trend till 2008-09. The same trend has been observed in both Private and Foreign Sector Banks. The declining trend from 2003 to 2006 of NPA was due to the implementation of Securitization Act (2002).



 But the increase in NPA was increasing in absolute term, as NPA as per percent of advance shows a declining trend in Public Sector Banks while that of in Private and Foreign Sector Banks shows an upward trend that is increase in NPA as per percent of advance after 2006.  The increase in NPA as per percent of advance of Private and Foreign Sector Banks is because of they have a major proportion of lending in non- priority sectors includes Medium and large scale industries which was highly affected by global financial crisis.



1. Capital Quality 2. Asset Quality

Capital Quality:
A sound and efficient banking system is end product for maintaining financial stability. Therefore, considerable emphasis has been placed on strengthening the capital requirements in recent years. The Capital to Risk-weighted Assets Ratio (CRAR) of SCBs, a measure of the capacity of the banking system to absorb unexpected losses, improved further to 13.2 per cent at end-March 2009 from 13.0 per cent at end-March 2008. The asset quality of banks in India has been improving over the past few years as reflected in the declining NPA to advances ratio. It is especially noteworthy that notwithstanding the pressures of a slowdown in the economy and an atmosphere of uncertainty, the net NPA to net advances ratio increased only marginally to 1.1 per cent as at end March 2009 from 1.0 per cent as at end March 2008. Significantly, gross NPA to gross advances ratio remained constant at 2.3 per cent. Thus, in terms of the two crucial soundness indicators, viz., capital and asset quality, the Indian banking sector has exhibited resilience amidst testing times.

NPA profile in the < 2% category of public sector banks was reached to 100% in 2008-09 as compared to Private and Foreign sector banks which was around 80%  Net NPA against net advances increased more in Foreign and Private sector banks in 2008-09 while Public sector banks have succeeded in reducing net NPA against net advances made over the period of time  Public sector banks have managed to increase the standard assets over the years. public sector banks have managed to reduce NPAs over the years. It shows a upward trends over the years as compared to others  The old private sector banks.  The percentage change in gross NPA to gross advances ratio & net NPA to net advances ratio over the years states that public sector banks makes more provisions in gross NPA & gross advances as compared to private and foreign banks. In Foreign sectors banks the proportion of sub-standard asset has increased tremendously by 3. Whereas it is just 55% & 43% for private sector banks & foreign banks. INSTITUTE OF BUSINESS MANAGEMENT 106 .R. which had been registering a significantly lower growth rate than their newer counterparts in the recent past.  Public sector banks almost 75% of income comes from Interest/Discount on advances/bill. The proportion of standard assets in Private sector banks reduced in 2008 and 2009 which was compensated by increase in sub-standard and doubtful assets. N.OVERALL FINDINGS  NPAs were more noticeable in respect of new private sector and foreign banks.2% of loan assets in 2008. managed a better performance this year. which have been more active in the real estate and housing loans segments.  Among all three sectors.

 Based on the asset classification viz. N.R.SUGGESTIONS  New body like Debt Recovery Tribunal should be established & capacity of DRTs should be enhanced.  All banks should keep stringent check on advance being made to real estate & housing segment as these segment contributed highly towards the NPA in 2008 & 2009. this matrix will be difficult to apply to assess individual borrowers because unlike a firm level borrower. financial data of an individual is not available. Doubtful Assets (DOUB) and Loss Assets (LOSS). This transition matrix can be used to assess the loan quality of a firm level borrower by evaluating the financial position. Therefore. p41 = p42 = p43 = 0 and thus p44 = 1. INSTITUTE OF BUSINESS MANAGEMENT 107 . Standard Assets (STD). Since the probability of a loss asset being converted to any higher asset category is zero. However. a matrix can be formed with a given probability. Sub-standard Assets (SUB). this matrix can be better applied for a firm level or corporate level borrower.

 Public sector banks should increase their non-interest income.  Private sector & Foreign banks should focus more on recovery of sub-standard & doubtful assets.R. as rise in NPA due to default in interest income may affect the profits drastically. Uneven scale of repayment schedule with higher repayment in the initial years normally should be preferred. N. INSTITUTE OF BUSINESS MANAGEMENT 108 .

But efficient management of NPA is not the sole factor that determines the overall efficiency of banks.CONCLUSION The NPA is one of the biggest problems that the Indian Banks are facing today. N. which hampers economic growth. Even among private sector bank. If the proper management of the NPAs is not undertaken it would hamper the business of the banks. INSTITUTE OF BUSINESS MANAGEMENT 109 . The NPAs would destroy the current profit. If the concept of NPAs is taken very lightly it would be dangerous for the Indian banking sector. and would affect the smooth functioning of the recycling of the funds Banks also redistribute losses to other borrowers by charging higher interest rates. interest income due to large provisions of the NPAs.R. Public sector banks are more efficient than private sector & foreign banks with regard to the management of nonperforming assets. Lower deposit rates and higher lending rates repress savings and financial markets. old private sector banks are more efficient than new private sector banks.
