Isn’t The National Investment & Infrastructure Fund Simply A Bandaid For Bad Loans?

Isn’t The National Investment & Infrastructure Fund Simply A Bandaid For Bad Loans?

Indian banks are sitting on what are known as non performing assets or bad loans. NPAs for all commercial banks now stand at rs 310,762 crore up from rs 142,903 crore in 2010-11. The government is also forming a Rs 40,000 crore national investment & infrastructure fund (NIIF) to absorb some of these bad loans.
