Mangalore : A meeting of the Bankers’ Club, Mangalore, was held on 5th February 2014, at the Meeting Hall, Corporation Bank, Head Office, Mangalore.  Sri. S.R.

Srivastav, Executive Directors of Corporation Bank and Sri. K.R. Shenoy, Executive Director of Vijaya Bank were also present on the occasion.

While expressing his concern over the increasing incidences of credit defaults in banks, Sri S.R. Bansal said that banks should focus on lending to MSME, Retail and Agri. sectors which have immense potential, better yield and lesser default. He also highlighted the importance of due diligence while sanctioning loans. By virtue of his rich experience in credit appraisal, he stressed the need to discuss credit proposals with the borrowers through direct interactions and visits to borrower’s workplace and residence to understand his business and properly gauge his credit requirements. He also observed that there is a need to have effective negotiations with the customers.

Referring to the challenges faced by the banking industry, Sri. V. Kannan  said that, amongst others, the increasing slippages were indeed a cause of concern for the banking industry, in general, and would increase  the provisioning requirements and the need for additional capitalization. Banks therefore need to gear up their machinery to overcome these challenges
