Top 5 PSU Banks With The Least Net NPA Ratios

By Saikat Mitra | 3/22/2013 9:00 PM Friday

A look at the performance of the PSU banks on a YTD basis tells us that most of the banks have been beaten on the bourses. The main concern that has crept in after the December 2012 quarter is on the NPAs (Non Performing Assets) front. Let us know what NPAs actually mean.

According to Investopedia, NPA is defined as a debt obligation where the borrower has not paid any previously agreed upon interest and principal repayments to the designated lender for an extended period of time. The non-performing asset is therefore not yielding any income to the lender in the form of principal and interest payments.

Let us look at the top 5 PSU banks that have the least Net NPAs as of FY12.
