Loan-waiver demands for the industry are unrealistic. India, and its banks, can’t afford it.

Public sector banks (PSBs) don’t have the financial muscle to afford large-scale loan waivers as a lifeline to the Indian industry. It’ll eventually have to be funded by the government, which is terribly stretched at the moment. Such a move will restrict PSBs’ lending activity and can impact economic recovery – the last thing India needs at this critical juncture.

IndusInd Bank has a long list of woes. Can its new CEO regain the market’s lost trust?

The IndusInd Bank stock has underperformed the Bank Nifty since August 2018. Blame NPA divergence following RBI’s asset-quality review and its exposure to IL&FS, telecom, commercial-vehicle loan, real estate, microfinance, etc. Sumant Kathpalia, who takes charge on March 24, must focus on low-cost liabilities and less-risky lending to get a fix on the downfall.
