The bank's gross bad loans by the end of the December quarter swelled to a staggering ₹40,709.20 crore
Fresh bad loan additions soared ₹36,763.76 crore during April-December 2019
NEW DELHI :
Over 90 per cent of the gross bad loans in the books of troubled Yes Bank were added during the first nine months of the current fiscal, with sour debt swelling by ₹36,763.76 crore during April-December 2019.
Yes Bank last week posted the highest-ever loss reported by any private sector bank at ₹18,560 crore for the third quarter of 2019-20, as huge provisioning for bad loans hit profitability.
Of the gross bad loans on the books of Yes Bank at end of December 2019, the bulk of loans -- ₹30,447.97 crore -- were categorised as sub-standard, meaning the payments towards principal and interest remained irregular or overdue for more than 90 days and were classified as bad for a period of 12 months from the date of NPA classification.
Loans of over ₹9,300 crore were in the doubtful category, with ₹7,904.49 crore falling into 'doubtful 1' list, ₹829.07 crore 'doubtful 2' and ₹573.75 crore classified as 'doubtful 3'.
Doubtful assets are bad loans that remain sub-standard for a period of more than 12 months.
The rest ₹953.92 crore loans were in the 'loss' category. Loss category loans are identified as uncollectible, considered to be of little value as their continuance as a bankable asset is not warranted even if there may be some salvage or recovery value.
Standard assets are the performing assets/loans wherein the principal and interest payments are regular.
The bank witnessed withdrawals of over ₹72,000 crore of deposits in the last six months.
The Reserve Bank had on March 5 superseded the board of Yes Bank due to its poor financial health and restricted withdrawals at ₹50,000 per account.
