(a) to (d): As per the instructions of the Reserve Bank of India (RBI), wilful defaulters are normally not eligible for restructuring. However, loans of wilful defaulters may be restructured provided the Joint Lenders Forum (JLF), after review of the reasons for classification of a borrower as a wilful defaulter, is satisfied that the borrower is in a position to rectify the wilful default, and the bank Boards of individual banks within the JLF, who have classified the borrower as wilful defaulter, approve restructuring.
Public Sector Banks have informed that no restructuring of loans of wilful defaulters has taken place during the last three financial years and the current financial year.
