Stressed Asset

Stressed Asset is a sum of Non-Performing Asset, Restructured Loans and Written off Assets. Therefore, to understand stressed assets, we must have an idea about NPAs, Restructured Loans and Written off assets

Non-Performing Assets
If the interest/instalment of principal remains overdue for 90 days then it is considered as Non-Performing Assets

Restructured Loans
A new loan that replaces the outstanding balance on an older loan, and is paid over a longer period, usually with a lower instalment amount.

 Written off Assets
When the bank or lender doesn’t count the money borrower owes to it, its called written off asset. The written-off loans are compensated through some other way. There is no meaning that the borrower is pardoned or got exempted from payment.
