NEW DELHI: Shares of Corporation Bank, Allahabad Bank and Dhanlaxmi Bank rose sharply by up to 10.10 percent on Wednesday after the RBI lifted lending curbs on these lenders by removing them from its weak-bank watchlist.
State-owned Corporation Bank zoomed 10.10 per cent, Allahabad Bank climbed 8.20 percent while private sector Dhanlaxmi Bank jumped 10 per cent. The RBI on Tuesday removed the three banks from its Prompt Corrective Action (PCA) framework.
In a statement, the RBI said the Board for Financial Supervision (BFS) reviewed the performance of banks under PCA and noted that the government has infused fresh capital on February 21 into various banks including some of the banks currently under the PCA framework.
Capital infusion, the RBI said, has shored up their capital funds and also increased their loan loss provision to ensure that the PCA parameters were complied with. "Accordingly, based on the principles adopted by the BFS in its earlier meeting dated January 31, 2019, it was decided in the meeting held on February 26, 2019 that Allahabad Bank and Corporation Bank be taken out of the PCA Framework subject to certain conditions and continuous monitoring," RBI said.
The RBI further it has also been decided to take Dhanlaxmi Bank out of the PCA Framework, subject to certain conditions and continuous monitoring, as the bank is found to be not breaching any of the Risk Thresholds of the PCA Framework.
