Stressed assets have been rising rapidly in India, mainly in public sector banks. A number of factors can be identified that have led to this situation. These include global slow down, governance related issues, political factors as well as mal-intentions and misconduct. Consequently, significant losses are incurred by the public as well as the Union Government which basically owns public sector banks.
