The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has held banks’ poor credit appraisal responsible for their high bad debts arising out of Mudra (Micro Units Development and Refinance Agency) loans, according to sources.
RBI Governor Shaktikanta Das also discussed the issue in a meeting with public sector bank (PSB) chiefs on Friday.
Bad debts for Mudra loans have spiked for PSBs, and, at the end of 2018-19 (FY19), stand at 9.3 per cent of advances. Loans under the Pradhan Mantri Mudra Yojana (PMMY) were Rs 3.22 trillion in FY19, according to the PMMY website.
