Study of Non Performing Assets in commercial banksNon performing AssetsIntroduction:A Non-performing asset (NPA) is defined as a credit facility in respect of which the interest and/K instalment has remained ‘past due’ for a specified period of time. Once the borrower has failed to make interest or principal payments for 90 days the loan is considered to be a non-performing asset.
NPA is used by financial institutions that refer to loans that are in default the so called NPL. The assets can be consider as non performing assets only considering the guidelines and regulations that are given by RBI.Non performing assets can be further divided in the following categories. This division is based on the time period:Sub standard assets: these are those type of assets which are remain as non performing assets but for the period not exceeding the 1 year or we can say less than 12 monthsDoubtful assets : These are those assets which remain as non performing assets more than 12 months but less than 36 months that is more than 1 year but less than 3 yearsLoss assets: these are those assets which are remain as non performing assets for period more than 36 months that means more than 3 years these are those assets recovery of which is impossible.
Causes of NPA:NPA is a major problem that is being suffered by many of the or we can say almost all of the financial institutions of India. This has a become a major headache for the various renowned institutions of our country. Though these are very common issue that is being occurred. among the financial institutions . Also there are various reasons or ways which may lead to the or creation as well as the increasing of the non performing assets of the financial institutions.NPA arises due to a number of factors or causes like:-Speculation : Investing in high risk assets to earn high income or we can say more and more profits. Yes , thus we can conclude the non performing assets are occurred due to the speculative nature possessed by the investors.
Speculation are like a greed which makes a man earn more due to which some illegal activity can performed and the person can lead to the creation of the non performing assets. Thus speculation is like a bliss for the financial institutions cause they may have to suffer because of this.Default : Intention to make default by the borrowers.
Sometimes an investor invest with a view to just exploit or we can say to make a fraud with another party which ultimately cause and make an adverse affect which leads to the creation or also the increasing of non performing assets. Wrong intention may lead to the wrong action and ultimately wrong action may lead to the adverse reactions and can also be very harmful.Fraudulent practices : Fraudulent Practices like advancing loans to ineligible persons, advances without security or references, etc.
Fraudulent practice thus can become another reason for the creation of non performing assets. Frauds are like a killer to any of the person or the institutions that leads to the loss to any of the assets which ultimately leads to the creation as well as the increased non performing assets of the institution .Thus frauds are one of the major cause for the creation of Non performing assets.Diversion of funds : Most of the funds are diverted for unnecessary expansion and diversion of business.
As we know excess of everything is bad thus the unnecessary diversion may lead to the unnecessary burden or flaws or may lead to creation of non performing assets. Expansion is a good thought but this thought required a lot of planning and effort to get implemented in reality so it can be said that to diversify sometimes there can be some losses to the organisation due to improper management of the institution.Internal reasons : Many internal reasons like inefficient management, inappropriate technology, labour problems, marketing failure, etc. resulting in poor performance of the companies. These reasons still can be controlled but they also may cause the major problem & can create non performing assets which is harmful for any financial institutions.External reasons : External reasons like a recession in the economy, infrastructural problems, price rise, delay in release of sanctioned limits by banks, delays in settlements of payments by government, natural calamities, etc. Thus the external reasons which are like put of control for any of the financial institutions have become cause behind the creation as well as the increasing of the non performing assets.
Thus above are major causes which leads to the creation of non performing assets in the financial institutions.
