In the banking business, you must have a focused approach to ensure that the money you give out comes back.
Banking is fundamentally a high-risk business. For example, out of an Rs100 loan given, a bank’s equity is only Rs10; the balance is depositors’ money.
In this kind of a business, you have to have fundamental quality of prudence, simplicity, etc., or else this is one of the most difficult businesses in the world.

We are amongst the top three countries in the world when it comes to levels of stress; and who are our companions — Greece and Italy.

The revised framework for resolution of stressed assets will have its implications not only for the big guys but also for the SME sector.
