Bankers want the (RBI) to ease some of the tight norms for asset classification, and have requested a relook on its February 12 circular that makes a firm a defaulter as soon as it misses a payment within the due date.

The Indian Banks’ Association (IBA) has sent two letters to the new Governor Shaktikanta Das — one elaborating banking sectors’ demands in the new year, and another specifically seeking relaxation on the IL&FS debt of about Rs 60,000 crore, according to sources.

“Our demands are essentially same as every year. But this year, we have asked the to reconsider the February 12 circular,” said a senior banker, requesting anonymity.
