IBA Asset Resolution Conference 2019

Unlocking Value Through Cooperation

December 7, 2019, Hotel Trident BKC, Mumbai


Indian Banks’ Association is pleased to announce the 2nd edition of Asset Resolution Conference and which is scheduled to be held on December 7, 2019 at Hotel Trident BKC, Mumbai.

Gross non-performing assets (NPAs) for Indian banking system have tripled between 2015 and 2019 and NPAs continue to be a large overhang for Indian banking sector with consequent impact on credit growth. Liquidity stress in non-banking finance companies (NBFCs) has increased the funding costs for NBFCs and also contributed to NBFC NPAs being at 6.6% (March 2019) which is the highest in the last six years.

However, concerted efforts by Government of India (GOI) and Reserve Bank of India (RBI) to address twin balance sheet issues afflicting banks and corporates have led to passage of landmark bankruptcy framework, recapitalisation of banks and passage of 7 June prudential framework for resolution of stressed assets.

Under the Insolvency and Bankruptcy (IBC) framework, successful resolutions have led to improvement of India ranking under “resolving insolvency” category to 52 [World Bank: Ease of Doing Business report (EODB) 2020] compared with 108 (EODB 2019) across 190 countries. EODB 2020 recognises the improvement in recovery rate to 71.6% (2020) compared with 26.5% (2019) along with reduction in time taken for recovery from 4.3 years (2019) to 1.6 years (2020). Apart from actual recovery, IBC has also helped in improving credit culture by instilling a sense of urgency among all stakeholders to resolve stress driven by fear of losing control over their prized assets. This has prompted promoters to proactively approach creditors for debt resolution before action is initiated under IBC.

As per Reserve Bank of India estimates (June 2019 Financial Stability report) NPAs for scheduled commercial banks (SCBs) have peaked at 9.3% (March 2019) and are expected to ease to 9.1% (March 2020). With increased provision coverage ratio (PCR) of SCBs increased to 60.6% (March 2019) from 52.4% (September 2018) and 48.3% (March 2018) respectively, adequately providing for the NPA in their respective balance sheets.

However, gross NPAs for the banking sector continue to be large and are estimated at INR 9.4 L Cr (March 2019), resolving stressed assets is of paramount importance and revival of GDP growth will be difficult unless the huge investment locked in these assets are resolved in an optimal manner.

IBA Asset Resolution Conference 2019 will seek to address a variety of issues, challenges and emerging opportunities for all related stake holders.
