Directi0ns—(Q. 36—40) Below is
given a passage followed by several
possible inferences which can be
drawn from the facts stated in the
passage. You have to examine each
inference separately in the context of
the passage and decide upon its
degree of truth or falsity. Give
(A) if the inference is ’definitely
true’, {,2., it properly follows
from the statement of facts
given.
(B) if the inference is ’probably
true’ though not ’definitely
true’ in the light of the facts
given.
(C) If the ’data are inadequate’,
i,e., from the facts given you
cannot say whether the
inference is likely to be true
or false.
(D) lf the inference is ’probably
false’, though not ’definltely
false’ in the light of the facts
given.
(E) If the inference is ’definitely

given facts.
The deterioration in the overall
asset quality of banl Performing Assets (NPAS) are
reportedly 27% higher at the end of
December 2009 than at the end of
December 2008-is not surprising.
Any slowdown in growth is bound to
trigger a rise in NPAs as more and
more companies default on loan
repayments. The effect would be
pronounced when the slowdown
coincides with a severe global
recession. But for the restructuring of
loans permitted by the Central Bank

on fairly generous terms, NPAS
would have been still higher. Prudent
banks that took care while sanction-
ing loans and then monitored the
post-sanction disbursement diligently
should be able to weather the crisis.
But it is one thing to have NPAs rise
because of a cyclical downturn, it is
quite another to have NPAs would
have been still higher. Prudent banks
that took care while sanctioning loans
and then monitored the post-sanction
disbursement diligently should be
able to weather the crisis. But it is one
thing to have NPAs rise because of
policy errors that are entirely within
the realm of policymakers. And this
is what we need to guard against.
Excessively low interest rates skew
the risk—reward equation by making
projects that are actually not viable,
appear viableftill interest rates
reverse and the same projects cease to
be viable E lt is now well established
that long periods of unduly low
interest rates encourage banks to take
more risks. A low interest rate regime
driven by an easy money policy
rather than macroeconomic funda-
of credit. It incentivizes banks to take
on more risk in search of higher
returns and to misprice risk.

36. Low interest rate on credit
reduces the capacity to absorb
various unaccounted risk factors.

37. Bank’s Nl’As occur only due to
economic factors.

38. The Central Bank always allows
banks to restructure their loans
in the event of rise in NPAs.

39. Lower interest rate cycle projects
commercially unviable projects
as viable.

40. Higher NPAs indicate shortcom-
ings in disbursement and follow-
up of credit given by banks.
