1. A bold step in bank reform

Reforms needed to back bank recapitalisation

A lease of life called bank recapitalization

It’s been late coming, but the recapitalisation of public sector banks is a winner.

Q. Discuss the way to recapitalize the banking system and what are challenges banking system facing in India.

Recapitalisation involves a major change in the way a bank is funded. This could come about through issuing new shares or loan from a government. Essentially recapitalisation involves providing the bank with new capital, e.g. government agree to buy new shares. This improves the banks’ bank balance and prevents them from going bust.

Difference between Loans and recapitisation

If you give a bank a loan, it can help improve liquidity, but it doesn’t improve their balance sheet, because they still owe the extra money received. i.e. the money shows up as an asset, but also as liability because you have to pay it back.

Recapitalisation would inject money without creating a liability.
