Finance ministry to conduct performance review of heads of 12 banks

New Delhi: The finance ministry would soon initiate a performance review of heads of public sector banks that are under the RBI’s (Reserve Bank of India) Prompt Corrective Action (PCA) as part of the reform process, official sources privy to the development said.

So far, RBI has put 12 public sector banks (PSBs) under watch in view of lagging on certain performance parameters like unexpected level of high non-performing assets (NPAs), low capital level, low return on assets etc. These parameters indicate weak financial health of lending institutions and a need to initiate remedial measures to put them on a right course.

Performance review of the top level management of all such banks would be undertaken soon, they said. As far as capital is concerned, the government has committed adequate funds, they said, adding that now these banks have to prove their mettle on the NPA front.

If these lenders “perform extraordinarily”, they will be rewarded, they added.

In the recently announced Reforms Agenda for Responsive & Responsible PSBs, the government committed Rs52,311 crore for the 12 banks under PCA as against healthy banks which will be Rs35,828 crore by 31 March, 2018. During the current fiscal, IDBI Bank has been committed the highest infusion of Rs10,610 crore, followed by Bank of India, Rs9,232 crore and UCO Bank (Rs6,507 crore).

Opposition must unite to protect democracy: Patole

Mumbai, Jan 28 Former BJP MP Nana Patole today said the Opposition parties should come together to protect democratic values and save the country from “dictatorship”.

Patole, who represents Bhandara-Gondia seat in east Maharashtra, rejoined the Congress early this month after falling out with Prime Minister Narendra Modi last year.

“The need of the hour is that the opposition parties should come together to uphold democratic values. Whatever happening in the country today shows that we are on the path to dictatorship,” Patole told PTI.

Patole said the unprecedented press conference of four senior-most Supreme Court judges earlier this month was a disturbing incident.

He hailed the “Save Constitution” march held by opposition leaders in Mumbai on January 26.

NCP chief Sharad Pawar, Sitaram Yechury (CPI-M) Sharad Yadav (rebel JD-U leader), D Raja (CPI), Hardik Patel (Gujarat’s Patidar leader), Dinesh Trivedi (Trinamool Congress), Omar Abdullah (National Conference) and Sushilkumar Shinde (Congress) among others had attended the march in south Mumbai.

“The ‘Save Constitution’ march held on Republic Day was significant. People and opposition parties should come together to uphold democratic values,” he told PTI.

Patole was the first BJP MP to openly criticise Prime Minister Narendra Modi and had claimed that the PM got angry with him “for raising problems faced by farmers”, during a meeting of MPs early last year.

“I represented my constituency and have the right to put forward grievances of people to the Prime Minister,” he said.

Patole claimed that many members of the BJP are “upset” over the prevailing situation, but not all can take a “daring step” like him.

Addressing a function in Shirdi, Patole said he was “warned” that he would have to face the same situation like Chhagan Bhujbal (NCP) and Lalu Prasad Yadav (RJD)–both in jail in money laundering and corruption cases–if he speaks against Modi as a Congress member
