Adam Smith Associates at CIIs’ Banking Colloquium on 16 September, 2017

As the economy moves towards digitization and cashless regime and single market structure under the reform measures of GST and demonetization, Indian Banking sector is going through a sea change.

The recent merger of the State Bank of India with its associate banks has set the path of consolidation for other banks as well. India has the world’s highest stressed asset ratio and RBI is working prudently for management of stressed assets made up of bad loans, restructured debt and advances to companies that cannot meet servicing requirements.

The microfinance industry and the non-banking financial institutions need to work for a change in their financial transactions, a major chunk of which was based on cash transactions till recently.

The new Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code, which lays down timeline to recover from defaulters and capping of bank loans to conglomerates, is promising a new Indian banking landscape by bringing transparency in the system and effective resolution to bad loan.

The issue of cyber security for the banks is now a pressing issue for the economy since the wave of digitization has set in.
