NPA Scam SBI Writes Off Rs1.23 Lakh Crore of Bad Debt, Recovers Rs 8,969 Cr

Friday, July 17, 2020

I always say and today also I will begin with same words, line 
NPA or Bad Debt, written off loan is nothing but a legal scam, a corruption done by corrupt officers. India does not need provision of NPA or method of writing off loans.

rule needs to be simple liya hai toh dena padega nahi toh jail jana padega

Indian government and others always say that bad loans written off does not mean a waiver
They are recovered in future.

loan write-off means you never took loan and we never gave you loan let us enjoy and forget the bad loans, come to bank again we will give you new loan of 1000 crore or more whatever you want.

Technically speaking, when debts are written off, they are removed as assets from the balance sheet because the bank does not expect to recover payment

in April, the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) had said that Indian banks have technically written off a staggering amount of Rs68,607 crore due from 50 top willful defaulters, including absconding diamantaire Mehul Choksi. RBI had revealed this information in reply to an RTI filed by Saket Gokhale. RBI said that this amount (Rs68,607 crore) comprising outstanding and the amounts technically or prudentially written off till 30 September 2019. 

Few names of the companies mentioned in top 50 defaulter companies 

Gitanjali Gems Ltd, which owed Rs5,492 crore, besides other group companies, Gili India Ltd and Nakshatra Brands Ltd, which had taken loans of Rs1,447 crore and Rs1,109 crore, respectively.

documents procured by Vivek Velankar from State Bank of India (SBI) shows that SBI write off of Rs.1,23,432 crore, but SBI has recovered only 7% or Rs. 8,969 crores over the past eight financial years.

Mr Velankar, president of Pune-based Sajag Nagrik Manch, told to media, "I tried obtaining this information under Right to Information (RTI) Act, but SBI denied it claiming that collating this information would be a waste of its resources. Being a shareholder of SBI, I then asked for this information as question for the annual general meeting (AGM). I did not get a chance to ask my question during the AGM, but the bank shared this information, which is quite shocking. This also exposes how the bank writes off loans of 100s of crores of rupees of large defaulters while denying waiver of simple interest on loans for common customers."

The Bank’s reply to Mr Velankar shows that during the eight years from FY 12-13 to FY 19-20, SBI has 'technically/prudentially written off’ a massive sum of Rs 1.23 lakh crore from its books, but managed to recover only 7% or Rs8,969 crore in this period. 

This exposes the government and banking system in India which always say that a ‘technical’ write-off does not stop the recovery process. 

The fact is that once a loan turns bad in India, it is almost impossible to recover anything

In FY 2019-20, SBI wrote off Rs 746 crore of non-performing assets (NPA) of Ruchi Soya Industries and has not recovered a single rupee from the company. 
The plan approved under the Insolvency & Bankruptcy Code (IBC) had indicated that SBI would recover Rs 883 crore against its admitted claim of Rs 1,816 crore. 
Instead, it made a fresh loan of Rs 1,200 crore to Baba Ramdev-led Patanjali Ayurved to help it acquire the company. 

In fact, several banks led by SBI had made claims of over Rs 12,146 crore against Ruchi Soya before the bankruptcy courts. 
SBI had the highest exposure of Rs 1,800 crore, followed by Central Bank of India (Rs 816 crore), PNB (Rs 743 crore), Standard Chartered Bank India (Rs 608 crore) and DBS (Rs 243 crore). It would probably be safe to surmise that other public-sector banks (PSBs) in the consortium have made similar write-offs.

After Ramdev Baba bought this company the share price of Ruchi Soya moved from about Rs 3.50 to Rs 1,535

why did not SBI and other banks got the equity shares also transferred in the name of bank as banks decided to forget the loan given to Ruchi Soya

Why did not SBI and other banks took control of Ruchi Soya and later on sold to someone else?
