“Any intended reforms will be meaningful only if they are understood in proper perspective which all stakeholders have to value,” said RBI deputy governor SS Mundra while delivering his keynote address at the Governance Now, India Banking Reforms Conclave 2017, in Mumbai on Friday.
 
Mundra said that despite banks deploying best technology for securing their network, cyber attacks  have acquired unprecedented scale and complexity. 
 
He cautioned customers to use passwords protection provided by banks rationally and with responsibility. He added: “All security footprints of the person who has initiated the transaction can be captured in the system.”
 
Explaining PCA (Prompt Corrective Action) framework of the RBI, the top banking official said: “Sometimes the stake holders fail to appreciate the import of intended changes and get misled by the uninformed or at times motivated interpretations. The related aspect is the reaction of customers to such propaganda.”
 
He added: “PCA framework is one such supervisory tool which involves monitoring of certain performance indicators of banks as an early warning exercise. It is initiated on thresholds relating to capital, asset quality etc. Its objective is to facilitate for banks to take corrective measures including those prescribed by the RBI in a manner to restore their financial health.”
 
Mundra said though PCA Framework has been in operation since Decemeber2002, the April 13, 2017 guidelines are only a revision in the framework .
 
“The entire exercise is to restore the health of PCA bank through closer and expert engagement of our supervisory team with management of  such banks  for assessment of progress made.”
 
He explained that the amount of Rs 6 lakh crore lent to 10 companies/ individuals as mentioned by sections of the media may be exposure to certain groups of certain industrial conglomerates or several entities within the group, including SPVs. “It is too ad hoc to assume that all entities under in such a group are under stress and all would simultaneously default.”
 
He added that RBI being the regulator of financial sector is no way connected to lending by banks.
