It is also believed that the matter would not have reached the door of the Supreme Court had the RBI appreciated the difficulties faced by the power sector. Whatever be the truth, any must take into account the cause of stress, particularly, when the cause encompasses the entire sector.

The columnist had aptly concluded that the key to the insolvency process is the revival of companies and the recovery of bank dues is an offshoot. It is hoped that the RBI would take a pragmatic approach in appreciating sectoral concerns without diluting its stand to punish wilful defaulters, when a fresh directive on is issued.
