I welcome the FM’s concern that under the IBC process banks are taking hefty haircuts…: P Chidambaram

P Chidambaram – Former Union Finance Minister:

I welcome the FM’s concern that under the IBC process banks are taking hefty haircuts, in some cases as much as 95%

Some days ago, I had pointed out that in 514 cases of resolution, the banks had sacrificed Rs 5.24,000 crore!

The IBC process has become a convenient cover for banks to write off large amounts lent to corporates, even while small borrowers like students are being harassed

The Committee of Creditors (CoC) is a cozy club where decisions on write-off are taken in an opaque manner

The ‘haircuts’ are a scandal. The FM should order a quick and thorough review of the IBC law and stop this bleeding of the banks
