Why this reconstruction scheme is introduced?

Last evening, the news of RBI superseding the Yes bank broke and people having their account in Yes bank gets into panic mode. After the news broke out, the share price of the yes bank has fallen by 85%. As per the official statement given by RBI- ‘The idea is to get steady flow of liquidity for YES Bank’ and hence this step has been taken.

RBI has placed Yes Bank Ltd. under moratorium for a month in exercise of the powers conferred under 36ACA of the Banking Regulation Act 1949. Thus, limiting the exercising power of Yes bank. The reconstruction scheme will help in achieving the financial stability in the Yes bank.

What is the issue?

Yes bank is one of the banks which is suffering due to increased in the  number of NPA. NPA refers to Non- Performing Assets, means the loan which was once considered asset has converted into loss as the person who was given the loan is unable to pay. Total amount that Yes Bank has is 3,80,826 crore out of which 2,41,500 crore is NPA. The NPA has tremendously increased in the past few years. That is why, RBI has finally taken the command to improve the condition. RBI has taken over the board of the private sector lender because of the serious deterioration in its financial position.

Impact of this take over

  • The RBI has imposed a cap of 50,000 over the monthly transaction by the customers of the bank.
  • In special circumstances, the withdrawal limit can be extended upto 5 Lakh rupees. For ex- for education purpose, Medical, Marriage etc.

Why this action?

This action has been taken by the bank to improve the financial status of the bank. This action will provide security to the money to the account holders of the bank. It will also improve the financial stability of the bank.

This is not the first time that  RBI has taken this step. Earlier also, RBI had Imposed restrictions on PMC Bank, and capped the Withdrawal limit  at Rs 1,000 for six months Owing to its poor financial stability. Hence, Customers need not to worry as this is a good move. RBI would help to bring financial stability in the bank. The money of the customer would be much safer now.
