The Food Corporation of India’s (FCI) procurement operations could come to a halt by February unless it is paid a good part of its outstanding dues of a record Rs 58,000 crore soon.

For the Centre, which has admitted to a tax revenue buoyancy overestimate of R1 lakh crore, and could face a shortfall of R20,000 crore in disinvestment receipts, the demand from the FCI could not have come at a worse time.

Official sources told FE that for FCI, which is somehow managing the minimum support price (MSP) operations of wheat and rice at present thanks to the three short-term bank loans of R20,000 crore taken since the start of the current fiscal, the ability to sustain the operations is already waning. These loans carry an interest of 11.28%, which gets added to the government’s food subsidy burden.

The food ministry has requested the finance ministry for R1.47 lakh crore (including R92,000 crore budgeted for FCI’s MSP functions and overall food subsidy arrears from previous years) in the current fiscal, a tall order given the Centre’s strained fiscal situation. >> Read More


Investments into domestic shares through participatory notes (P-Notes) surged to the highest level in more than six-and-half years at Rs 2.65 lakh crore (about $ 43 billion) in October.

According to the data released by the Securities and Exchange Board of India (Sebi), the total value of P-Note investments in Indian markets (equity, debt and derivatives) rose to Rs 2,65,675 crore at the end of October from Rs 2,22,394 crore in September.

This is the highest level since February 2008, when the cumulative value of such investments stood at Rs 3,22,743 crore.

P-Notes, mostly used by overseas HNIs (High Networth Individuals), hedge funds and other foreign institutions, allow them to invest in Indian markets through registered Foreign Institutional Investors (FIIs), while saving on time and costs associated with direct registration.

According to market analysts, investment into the equity market via P-Notes had been rising in the past few months, mainly on account of the government’s reforms agenda and a rally in the country’s equity markets.

It shot up in May, post the General Election results, primarily on the new government’s promise to revive economic growth and the momentum continued till October.

P-Note investments in Indian markets have climbed to Rs 1.86 lakh crore in October from Rs 1.68 lakh crore in the preceding month.

For every rupee that banks in India have lent in the nine months to December 2013, 13 paise has turned sour and has been classified a non-performing asset (NPA). For United Bank, 60 paise is bad for every rupee lent.

In the nine months during April-December in fiscal 2014, 42 banks have lent R5.02 lakh crore and their gross NPAs for the same period stood at R67,394 crore. In the same period, United Bank’s gross advances stood at R9, 268 crore, whereas gross NPAs were R5,581.18 crore. Most of the NPAs were, however, added by the public sector banks.

In these nine months, public sector lenders added R63,782 crore of bad loans to their books and accounted for 94% of the total NPAs.

An analyst at a foreign brokerage said that public sector lenders are burdened by bad loans from the mid-corporate and small and medium enterprises (SME). On the contrary, private banks focus on retail customers who account for lower NPAs. “PSBs have loans like Air India, Kingfisher and even discoms that have cost them dear,” he said. >> Read More


cdrStating that the overall asset restructuring in the banking system has touched Rs 3.25 lakh crore as of June, RBI Executive Director B Mahapatra today said loan recast has gone “out of control” and all stakeholders need to tackle the problem jointly.

“Till March 2011, things were manageable. We had around Rs 1.1 lakh crore in recast loans, but now if you see, things are quite out of control. It has gone up to Rs 2.7 lakh crore. This is only CDR (corporate debt restructuring) and if you put both (CDR and bilateral restructuring cases between banks and companies) together, may be it might exceed Rs 3.25 lakh crore,” he said at the annual Bancon here.

Mahapatra said the Reserve Bank of India was willing to “tolerate a bit of restructuring,” but he exhorted banks to provide more against potential asset quality troubles and promoters to get more equity and personal guarantees.

“We’ll tolerate a bit of restructuring, we will give the regulatory forbearance, offer more time — that is the loss or the sacrifice that we as regulators are willing to make. But you as bankers should also be willing to make more provisions…And the borrowers should also sacrifice, he should bring in more equity,” he said.

“It is a loss-sharing arrangement. In a system, when there is a problem, all the stakeholders should share the loss,” the executive director said.

Mahapatra pointed out that the RBI has increased the provisioning requirements for banks from 2% earlier to up to 5% in some cases. >> Read More


India’s top builders seem to be sitting on a huge unsold real estateinventory, worth nearly Rs 58,000 crore, which could take more than two years to sell, a Business Standard analysis of 19 listed realty firms on the BSE-500 index shows.

At the end of March, the combined unsold inventory of these companies rose 25 per cent from a year earlier. Their net sales remained almost flat during the same period (see chart).

Of the Rs 58,000-crore pile-up, DLF, India’s largest real estate developer, accounted for almost a third. As of March-end, the Delhi-based company reported an inventory worth Rs 17,600 crore, 18 per cent more than that two years earlier. The company’s consolidated net sales declined from Rs 9,561 crore to Rs 7,773 crore during this period. Following DLF is HDIL, which reported an inventory of Rs 12,043 crore at the end of March this year, more than six times its net sales last financial year.

Third on the list is Indiabulls Real Estate, with an unsold inventory worth Rs 5,111 crore, nearly four times its 2012-13 net sales.

The situation might look even grimmer if the figures for unfinished projects or those under construction (capital work in progress) were to be included. At March-end, the 19 firms in the sample reported Rs 12,300 crore of capital work in progress (see chart). >> Read More
