What are Non Performing Assets ??

The term NPA was firstly introduced in the banks by Reserve Bank of India for the only purpose to reflect the true and the correct profit and the loss of the Financial Institutions. As the NPAs results in the loss of the profit of the financial institutions. So this affects the financials of the financial institutions which would was not fair on the part of the RBI. So they included the term NPA and told the banks to classify the normal customers and the non performing customers. Now as they started the concept of NPA, they need to clarify the meaning of NPA and how it is useful to them. So they defined the NPA as under:

The account of the customer will be classified as NPA if any of the following happens:

  • The account of the customer remains out of order for a period of 90 days in case of Cash Credit facility or the Overdraft facility.
  • Installment payment or the interest payment there on is overdue for a period of more than 90 days and the customer is not able to repay the term loan installments.
  • If the derivative overdue is not paid within 90 days from the due date of payment in the derivative contract.
  • The amount overdue on any liquidity facility availed by the customer and the payment of the same is not made within 90 days.
  • In case of agricultural facilities, there may be 2 possibilities:
    • In case of long duration crops the installment or interest remains outstanding for one crop season.
    • In case of short duration crops the installment or interest remains outstanding for two crop season.
