Pandit said that the bank has taken effective steps for recovery in hardcore accounts, including attachments of properties of defaulters, public auctions of the same, filing criminal suits against defaulter borrowers/guarantors, etc. The bank has also shared the names of its defaulter borrowers/guarantors to other banks for effective recovery, he said.

The joint proposal for merger of Rupee Bank with Maharashtra State Cooperative Bank (MSCB) mutually agreed by both the banks and envisaging ‘no loss’ to the depositors is already submitted to RBI, which is presently under scrutiny and evaluation of RBI, he said. Both the banks are following it up with RBI, he said, adding that the bank is keen to get its statutory audit completed at the earliest.
