Bankers to debate NPAs, liquidity at RBI meet

Besides this, concerns of further rise in bad loans in certain sectors like small and medium enterprises (SMEs) are also likely to top the agenda when bank chiefs meet the Reserve Bank Governor D Subbarao on Monday ahead of the annual policy on April 20. Also, bankers are likely to ask the central bank to relax NPA norms in sectors, which were directly hit by the financial slowdown, banking sources said.

“Bankers are likely to request  RBI not to hike interest rates further in April as this could directly impact their liquidity position leading to a sharp rise in lending rates,” State-run Uco Bank’s Chairman and Managing Director, S K Goel told PTI.

“Bankers may raise concerns on rising level of bad loans in certain sectors like small and medium enterprises and exports,” Goel said.
