Mumbai: Banks may need to do an incremental provisioning of 20 per cent for 50 large stressed accounts to absorb any losses, says a report. These 50 large accounts are from the sectors such as construction, power and metals, among others and constitute about half of the gross non-performing assets of the banking sector.

"Banks may require an incremental provisioning of 20 per cent against cumulative debt of 50 large stressed assets worth over Rs 4.3 lakh crore," says a joint report by Assocham and rating agency Crisil.


While banks may have already provisioned for a part of these exposures, they need to adequately capitalise to absorb such losses which could fuel credit growth and support the next leg of economic growth, it said.

On Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code (IBC), the report said there is a need to address various challenges such as inter-credit conflicts, ability of large corporates to delay the recovery process and burden on the National Company Law Tribunal (NCLT)/ Debt Recovery Tribunal (DRT).

Roll-out of the ecosystem including adequate number of tribunals, insolvency professionals and information utilities, a limited timeline for the formulation of resolutions and access to the secondary market are needed in case of liquidation for successful implementation of the IBC, it said.

"The success of the code hinges on strengthening its ecosystem, which will help in protecting the interest of stakeholders, instilling financial discipline among borrowers and create a robust platform to attract investors," the report noted.

It said though the IBC is expected to face teething troubles before fully taking off, its stakeholders are expected to reap greater benefit in the long run.

Along with banks and asset reconstruction companies (ARCs), the IBC will benefit corporates, professionals and employees, boost investor confidence, and facilitate deepening of the domestic corporate bond market, it added.
