According to media reports, the Central Information Commission (CIC)
has told the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) to disclose the list of big loan
defaulters it had sent to banks for resolution. The CIC's directive came
while deciding on a plea by a Lucknow‐based activist who had based her
RTI application on some media reports that RBI deputy governor in a
lecture in 2017 had said accounts of some loan defaulters have been sent
to banks for resolution.
Media reports stated that the next wave of bank consolidation is being
planned during the Oct‐Dec quarter of FY20. The finance ministry has
started to seek information from public sector banks on possible targets
for amalgamation/mergers and acquisitions with justification on how such
an initiative will synergise operations and strengthen the bank. The
reports said heads of all public sector banks have been asked to be ready
with their consolidation plan so that it could be placed before the
alternative mechanism (AM) of the new government as soon as it is
formed. The AM, or a group of ministers under the former finance
minister was created in 2017 to fast track consolidation and help create
strong and competitive banks, serving as catalysts for growth, with
improved risk profile and one that can exploit economies of scale.
Reserve Bank of India governor met finance minister for a discussion on
the state of the economy. The discussions at the hour‐long meeting were
the first between the government and the central bank since election
results were announced. This comes weeks before the monetary policy
committee meeting, where the interest rate will be reviewed. Media
reports said industry and economists have been complaining about signs
of a slowdown in the economy and have cited cash crunch at non‐banking
finance companies as a big reason for a dip in demand for cars and
durables. Besides, the RBI is to announce a new policy on loan
restructuring and insolvency action against companies that default in loan
Asian equity markets ended mixed as trade worries continued to haunt
investors. Provisional results showing no party was able to secure a
majority in European parliament also affected the investor mood together
with British Prime Minister’s resignation. Today (as of May 28), Asian

Japan. Both Nikkei and Hang Seng were trading higher 0.38% and 0.35%,
respectively (as at 8 a.m. IST).
As per the last close, European markets mostly rose as market
participants largely reacted positively to results of European Union
parliamentary elections. U.K. market was closed on the occasion of Late
May Bank Holiday.
