RBI Sets Up Committee Under YH Malegam to Monitor Bad Loans

PNB Bank Fraud has stunned the common man as well as the bank regulatory organisation Reserve Bank of India. Stunned by the 11,400 crore fraud, RBI has formed a committee under the chairmanship of Y H Malegam.

Malegam who served as the Central Board of Directors of RBI will enquire about the issue associated with the classification of bad loan, rising incidents of frauds and potency of the audits.
