Indian Bank is one of the oldest nationalised banks of India. In 1992, the prudential norms related to asset classification, income recognition and provisioning were introduced, which made the bank's Non-Performing Assets (NPAs) clearly visible. These NPAs were gradually increasing because of the bank's methods and systems. In 1999, a Management Advisory Group, appointed by the Reserve Bank of India, reported that Indian Bank was a weak bank, as its accumulated losses exceeded its capital and reserves. In 2000, Ranjana Kumar was appointed the Chairperson and Managing Director and she proposed a restructuring plan for a three-year period from 2000 to 2003 to turnaround the bank.

Pedagogical Objectives:

  • To discuss the banking scenario in India and various opportunities and threats faced by Indian Bank
  • To discuss various strategies implemented by Indian bank to come out of its losses.
