Meanwhile, the RBI has said it will come out with modified guidelines by this month-end to allow a portion of sustainable bad loans to be treated as standard asset in a bid to effectively deal with high problem.

The Reserve Bank has put in place the 'Scheme for Sustainable Structuring of Stressed Assets' (S4A) in order to provide an avenue for reworking the financial structure of entities facing genuine difficulties and requiring coordinated financial restructuring.

The scheme provides flexibility in restructuring, which may involve material write-down of debt and/or making large provisions, RBI had said in the fourth bi-monthly monetary policy review for 2016-17.

that have taken up cases for resolution under the S4A had represented that the asset classification norms under the S4A may be reviewed to make the scheme more effective.
