    Yes Bank impact: Private lenders may hit fund bump

    Private sector banks, especially the smaller ones, are likely to face the heat of the Yes Bank collapse, as funds will be hard to come by in the wake of the trust deficit — the most important component of the financial system.

    According to top executives from five different fund houses, many big-ticket investors have become averse to parking their monies with private banks after the collapse of Yes Bank. As of date, at least three private sector lenders are actively in search of funds to buffer up their capital base — which has been depleted due to stress in their loan-books.

    Yes Bank has become the fourth financial sector institution to collapse since 2018. Others on the list include IL&FS, Dewan Housing and PMC Bank. There have been collapses in the non-financial sector meanwhile like Jet Airways.

    Govt is nationalising losses, privatising profits by asking SBI to take over: MSBEF

    The government is following the principle of "nationalising of losses" and "privatisation of profits" by asking the State Bank of India to bail out Yes Bank, according to Maharashtra's apex banking employees' federation.

    "The corporates who have looted the bank should be put behind bars," he said.
    Tuljapurkar said the RBI with its action of moratorium has created panic with the depositors but in the market everybody was contemplatingthe background why RBI has not intervened before. "RBI also should be made accountable. On thebackground RBI should carry out a special inspection of all the private sector banks. If SBI can bail out Yes Bank then why not PMC, Pen Urban or Rupee Bank. What sin depositors of those banks have committed? On the background revival of FRDI Bill will lead to insecurity with the bank depositors and adversely affect on rate of savings which may have a far-reaching effect on the economy," he said.

    Sanjeev Zarbade, VP PCG Research, Kotak Securities says:

    “The BSE-30 Index declined 1.9% in the current week as the spread of the Covid-19 virus across geographies spooked market participants fearing the risk of an economic slowdown in developed markets. Global markets were mixed though, with the supposed epicenter of the Corona Virus rallying 5% during the week. The Federal Reserve cut its interest rates as an emergency move. State Bank of India Tata Steel and Bajaj Finance were among the top losers in the BSE-30 Index, while Power Grid, Sun Pharmaceuticals and Nestle India were among the top gainers. The major development during the week was the bailout of YES Bank by SBI and the related sharp price movements in both the stocks, especially that of YES Bank stock. Even SBI stock corrected on account of uncertainty in the amount of funds that it will have to commit to revive YES Bank. On the economy front, real GDP growth moderated to 4.7% in 3QFY20 as against an upward revised print of 5.1% in 2QFY20.

    "Did you notice that the FM did not acknowledge the numbers of the loan book of YES Bank? Did you notice that FM did not explain how the loan book miraculously jumped from Rs 55,633 crore in March 2014 to Rs 2,41,999 crore in March 2019," he tweeted.

    Reacting to FM Nirmala Sitharaman's presser, Congress senior leader and former Finance Minister P Chidambaram said, "What is the government doing today? Is the government not merging weak public sector banks with stronger public sector banks?

    Naturally, FM blamed the “legacy” of UPA. She will say that for the rest of the tenure of the BJP government!"

    "The decisions to merge were taken by RBI Governors Dr C Rangarajan and Dr Y V Reddy. Why doesn’t the FM call them and ask them to explain their decisions? She might find that the decisions were correct and taken by competent Governors," he said in a tweet.

    "FM was focused on what happened during the UPA. What happened was UPA did not allow any bank to reach a state of collapse. Under UPA, weak banks were merged with other banks well in time to avoid a crisis," he said.

    Talking about the Union Western Bank merger lapse during the UPA government's tenure, FM Nirmala Sitharaman said, "They were the same people who handled the United Western Bank, which was almost on the verge of collapsing in 2006, forcefully merged with IDBI. And today, if I have problems restoring some good health of IDBI, i am giving a pointed example of how self-appointed competent doctors had handled United Western's merger with IDBI. IDBI went down and United Western was already challenged.

    Global Trust Bank, July 2004, was merged with Oriental Bank of Commerce.

    Ganesh Bank of Kurundwar was merged with a private bank, Federal Bank in January 2006. In all 3, you immediately merged and washed your hands off.

    How many people were held accountable for the challenges faced by all such banks?"

The so-called, self-appointed doctors are saying this, they are saying Yes Bank is no bank," said the Finance Minister.
