In its Interim Order dated September 3, 2020, the Hon'ble Supreme Court of India (SC), in a public interest litigation (Gajendra Sharma vis Union of India & Anr), has directed that accounts which were not declared as NPA till August 31, 2020 shall not be declared as NPA till further orders. Based on the said interim order, the Bank has not classified any account pertaining to Domestic Operations as NPA, which was not NPA as of August 31, 2020.
