The Reserve Bank of India (RBI), through its notification, DBR.No.BP.BC.103/ 21.04.132/2015-16 dated 13 June 2016, has issued guidelines for a scheme for Sustainable Structuring of Stressed Assets (the scheme) to facilitate the resolution of large borrower accounts that are facing severe financial difficulties.
The scheme is an optional framework for the resolution of large stressed accounts in addition to the Strategic Debt Restructuring (SDR) mechanism that was previously introduced by the RBI. It was issued in order to facilitate the deep financial restructuring necessary for a sustained revival of large projects, even without a change in promoters as was envisaged under the SDR mechanism.
This issue of First Notes aims to provide overview of the scheme.
