The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has put four public sector lenders, including IDBI Bank and Indian Overseas Bank, under watch and advised them to stay off risky assets so that their financial health is not stressed further.
While UCO Bank also figures in the list, the name of the fourth lender could not be immediately ascertained.
Sources said these lenders were on the RBI’s radar as their financial health may not improve after the central bank’s asset quality review (AQR) comes to an end on March 31.
These banks have been advised by both the Finance Ministry and the RBI to improve their financials, look for avenues for capital infusion and create a self-sustaining model by selling assets, they added.
