Related News RBI Governor Raghuram Rajan has flagged once again the danger of heavy borrowing or over-leveraging by corporates voicing the worry of not just the central bank but also the government Rajan told a gathering of students in Kolkata last week that debt is like dynamite “useful in [the] right places and explosive in others” while calling for moderation in debt-taking Official data released recently confirms the risks of a debt pile-up Of the bad loans of banks aggregating Rs 347 lakh crore those of wilful defaulters alone account for Rs 64335 crore According to RBI estimates bad loans account for 11 per cent of all outstanding loans of Indian banks but Credit Suisse reckons the figure could be as high as 17 per cent Credit Suisse also estimates that the gross debt of 10 of India’s most indebted industrial groups has risen by 12 per cent since 2013 Much of the debt can be traced to the huge bet on infrastructure investments that a group of large corporates took during the UPA government’s tenure only for some of the projects to unravel owing to a host of reasons including problems with approvals and a slowdown in the economy Those borrowings are not only hurting these groups but also and more importantly many lenders especially state-owned banks The government and the RBI have sought to address the issue by pushing banks to act against defaulters and through initiatives such as strategic debt restructuring to take control of the companies But results are bound to take time to show given the slack in domestic capacity and the weak near-term prospects of a global recovery This cautionary tale of explosive corporate debt however offers an opportunity to policymakers to push for much-needed changes in India’s financial sector To start with regulators should make it mandatory for top corporates and business groups to access funds from bond markets or other intermediaries after fixing a cut-off for borrowings from the banking system Some of that is already happening Alongside the RBI should move faster on broadening and deepening India’s financial markets to ensure financing for India’s growth It is also time to focus more on the governance of institutions and firms Neither the government nor the RBI can afford to kick the can down the road For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsBy: Express News Service

steady drizzle throughout the morning The Mercedes driver was half a second quicker than Ferrari’s second-placed Kimi Raikkonen and his time of one minute 26600 seconds was so outrageously quick there were gasps before the crowd erupted “I always try to leave the best to last” the Briton told retired champion Jenson Button in post-qualifying interviews on the grid “I needed to make sure I got that lap in I didn’t do in the last race (in Austria) so I really made sure I saved it this weekend” Vettel recognised Hamilton had been out of reach “I think he owned the pole position today” said the

take no further action to Grosjean’s evident disgust “I was impeded today Maybe if it was another driver there would have been something” he fumed The Briton’s mastery lit up an overcast afternoon and the pole was the 67th of his career and sixth of the season giving him every chance of equalling Schumacher’s record 68 before the August break The triple world champion has won the last three British Grands Prix and can equal the late Jim Clark’s feat of four home wins in a row and five in total on Sunday Saturday ensured he has matched Clark’s 50-year-old British record of five home pole
