The Rs2.11 trillion recapitalization package announced by the government is a major outbreak (1) towards revitalizing public sector banks (PSBs) connecting (2) with non-performing assets (NPAs) and inadequate capital, and will help them responsive(3)on credit growth.

Also, with incremental acquisition (4) to stressed assets unlikely to materialize going forward, we expect the credit profiles of PSBs to adorn (5).

The proposed infusion would be adequate, because CRISIL determine (6) that PSBs would need Rs1.4-1.7 trillion of capital by March 2019 to offset profit and loss (P&L) losses stemming from higher NPA provisioning, and to comply(7)with Basel III capital adequacy norms. And that’s after some capital savings (because of slower growth in risk-weighted assets) and approximately Rs30,000crore upheaved (8) through additional tier 1 (AT1) bond issuances in the last fiscal. The recap will help PSBs conquer(9) provisioning for, and resolve, NPAs, and clean up their balance sheets. Consequently, and over the next couple of years, their credit growth should nudge (10) double digits, compared with the approximately 3% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) seen between fiscals 2014 and 2017.
