decision to infuse addional capital in PSBs but
termed it as a short term relief but not as a long
term cure"No doubt, this is a welcome measure.
But this by itself will not help the banks to come
out of the mess they are in now" AIBEA, General
Secretary, C H Venkatachalam said in a press
release. "We demand recovery and not write off
of bad loans. We need cure and not just relief",he said.

The Rs 2.11 lakh crore recapitalisaon package
for PSBs announced is an investment by the
government and not an expenditure, Finance

lakh crore will be given by issuing recapitalisaon
bonds, while the rest will come in the form of
budgetary support and capital raising by the
banks themselves. The nature of the
recapitalisaon bonds is sll being deliberated
over and will be made clear once finalised.
Speaking about the recapitalisaon exercise,
Lavasa said that the government is open to

progress, he said, and a final plan will be
formulated in due course.
