"The asset reconstruction and management company that is going to be setup is a very important step that the government has taken. It will free up the public sector banks from their large NPAs to focus on new credit and which is very important to do if you have to get all these sectors to grow. The government has also committed some additional capital, I think Rs 20,000 crore that will go in to these banks, they have also talked about divestment of two of the PSBs and one general insurance company. So money is going to come in from there as well", he said.
