Indian banks with highest NPAs, SBI tops

Banks, say analysts, will be able to recover only half their NPAs due to the current economic depression.

Rs 2,060,000,000,000.

That shocking figure of Rs 2.06 trillion, is the gross non-performing assets (advances gone bad) of Indian banks.

By the end of June 2013, 3.85 per cent of the banks’ advances to the industry were non performing assets (NPAs).

Alarm bells started ringing when State Bank of India, the largest bank in India, declared that its NPAs had crossed the 5 per cent mark.

Given the size of SBI, that is a huge figure. Some other banks have performed worse in terms of percentages, though given their smaller size, the absolute number is lower.

India’s Rs 80 trillion banking industry is under severe stress and analysts warn that banks will be able to recover only half their NPAs due to the current economic depression.

However, the he silver lining is profits in most banks are rising and retail segment NPAs are coming down.

Two banks whose gross NPA as a percentage of their gross advances places them among the worst performers are the State Bank of Mysore (5.61%) and UCO Bank (5.58%). But since the absolute figure is on the lower side, they do not figure in the list.

Take a look at some Indian banks with the highest NPAs…
