RBI to change wilful defaulter norms

The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has issued a draft paper proposing that lenders classify wilful defaulters within 6 months of an account turning a non-performing asset. The RBI has proposed that all accounts above Rs 25 lakh be monitored for wilful defaults. The classification will happen after the borrower has been provided an opportunity to be heard.

Borrowing conditions for big firms eased

The Securities and Exchange Board of India (Sebi) said it would allow for more flexibility for companies to access the bond markets as well as move penalties for companies that were unable to meet the mandatory bond market borrowing quota. There will now be no penalty for failing to raise the mandatory 25 percent of incremental borrowings for the fiscal year through bond markets.
