The Union Finance Minister Shri P. Chidambaram said that the last Financial Year 2013-14
was a difficult year even though there was positive movement towards greater stability. The
Finance Minister expressed the need for structural reforms to tackle the problems of inflation
especially food inflation which can't be tackled through fiscal and monetary policies alone.
He said that tough measures need to be taken against wilful defaulters. He said that position
that `promoter is prosperous but company is sick' is not acceptable. He asked the banks to
form a consortium and take joint action against such defaulters. The Finance Minister Shri
Chidambaram was speaking while reviewing the Annual Performance of Public Sector
Banks (PSBs) and Financial Institutions (FIs) for the Financial year 2013-14 here today.
Among those participated in the meeting include Shri Namo Narain Meena, Minister of State
for Finance, Dr. Gurdial Singh Sandhu, Secretary, Department of Financial Services, Ms
Snehlata Shrivastava, Additional Secretary, DFS, CEOs/CMDs of Public Sector
Banks(PSBs) and Financial Institutions(FIs) along with other senior officials of the ministry.
Issues related to Non-Performing Assets (NPAs) of PSBs and measures for prevention of new
accretion to NPAs were discussed. Flow of credit to the agriculture sector including priority
sector lending, education loans, minority lending, MSME credit were high on the agenda and
discussed. In addition, issues related to stalled projects, new projects having a bearing on the
functioning of PSBs and progress on financial inclusion were also discussed.

                The 2013-14 Annual Results of 19 PSBs which have been declared so far
were analysed at the meeting. As against the stated target of 40% Adjusted Net Bank Credit
(ANBC), the Public Sector Banks (PSBs) have done Priority Sector Lending (PSL) to the
extent of 37% of ANBC. Within the PSL, the advances to weaker section have been at 10.6%
of ANBC as against the stated target of 10% and minority lending has reached a level of
16.09% as against the target of 15%. The number of students availing Education Loan has
gone up to 25.72 lakh accounts with a credit outstanding of Rs.58,265 crores.

       Banks have also done lending of Rs.7,511crores to Micro and Small Enterprises
during the year 2013-14. Out of this, the percentage of allocation to Micro Enterprises is
52.81% and there has been a growth of 14.15% in terms of number of Micro Enterprises
covered during the year. In terms of credit growth to MSE growth has been 23.01% during
the year.

       The housing sector including Priority Sector Housing has seen a growth rate of 18.4%
during the year 2013-14 with a total lending of Rs.5.408 lac crores to housing sector. The
total outstanding as on 31st March to housing sector by Public Sector Banks is Rs.3.72 lakh
crores. NPA in housing loan has reduced from 1.8% in financial year 2012-13 to 1.47% in
financial year 2013-14.

       It was noted that banks have opened more than 10,000 branches during 2013-14
which is the highest ever. Out of that, PSBs alone have opened 7,840 branches in the country
in 2013-14 which is a major improvement from the average 4,000-4,500 branches that they
normally open every year. Moreover, banks have set-up more that 25,000 on-site ATMs
which is two and a half times the 10,000 ATMs that they usually set-up every year. Besides
it, more than 15,000 ATMs have been opened off-site and thus, more than 40,000 ATMs
have been opened during 2013-14.

The slowing down of the economy has impacted the results of the banks. Year on year
Deposit growth of 19 PSBs as on 31st March, 2014 was 11.43% and Advances growth was
10.69% .Gross NPAs had increased and net profit had decreased vis-a-vis the performance
reported in 2012-13.

        The sluggishness in the domestic growth during the recent past and the tepid recovery
in the global economy have impacted the NPAs. Gross NPAs of PSBs have risen from 3.84
per cent as on March, 2013 to 4.44 per cent as at the end of March, 2014. However, from a
peak of 5.07 per cent, GNPAs in the third quarter ending December, 2013, these have
come down to 4.44 per cent (provisional) in the last quarter of the year ending March,
2014. The top 30 NPAs of PSBs account for 40.2 % of their GNPAs. The CEOs of PSBs

reported the measures being taken to bring down the NPAs. The Finance Minister asked
them to redouble their efforts on recovery and take tough measures against wilful defaulters.
