surged 6% to Rs 324 on the NSE in intra-day trade after the company reported a better-than-expected 29% year on year growth in net profit at Rs 233 crore for the second quarter ended September 30, 2016 (Q2FY17). Analysts on an average had expected profit of Rs 209 crore for the quarter.

Chanda Kochhar, MD & CEO, ICICI Bank, said, has been closely working with various companies, including the Essar Group, to help them deleverage their stressed balance sheets. CLICK HERE TO READ FULL REPORT.

Moody’s Investors Service today said, the draft bill on resolution of firms is credit positive for banks as it is an important step to having a comprehensive framework in place for stressed firms.

After enacting a bankruptcy code for time-bound settlement of insolvency cases in non-firms, the finance ministry last month released a draft bill to set up a resolution corporation to address similar issues among firms.

"Currently, the resolution of firms in India is based on minor parts of legislation enacted for other purposes," says Srikanth Vadlamani, a Moody's Vice President and Senior Credit Officer.

"This bill is therefore a credit positive for Indian banks in terms of enhancing overall systemic stability."
