The Finance Ministry on Wednesday asked Indian Banks’ Association (IBA) to play a pivotal role in the resurgence of the economy in the 75th year of India’s independence.

“At this juncture I would urge the IBA Chairman to scout for good competent resources and technology adoption for capitalisation. IBA should not be merely an association that passes banking issues to the RBI, it must rather strive to integrate with economic reforms for boosting growth,” Financial Services Secretary Debasish Panda said.

The Association has pushed reforms including the corporate lending system, dealing with issues like syndicate lending and multiple financing, he said.
