Jaitley asks Nationalised Banks to deal strictly with defaulters

India’s Finance Minister Arun Jaitley recently held a meeting with the heads of public sector (nationalised) banks.

In this context, Jaitley told the banks to come down heavily on wilful defaulters, and reminded them that they were already empowered by relevant banking rules and regulations to take these defaulters to task, and recover the dues.

With this message, he asked the banks to clean up the debris of default from their balance sheet at the earliest, and to improve the quality of their assets quantitatively, at the earliest.
