The Indian banking system's bad loans may rise to a 20-year high on the back of COVID-19 induced stress, the central bank has noted adding that gross non-performing assets (NPAs) of scheduled commercial banks in India may rise to anywhere between 13.5 to 14.8 percent by September 2021 from 7.5 percent as of September 2020.
