  2. Till now, there has been a discrepancy in the NPA numbers that banks report and what the RBI finds during the annual inspections.
  3. Banks have to make a 5% provision for standard assets while provisioning for a sub-standard asset is 15-20%.
  4. The gross NPAs of public sector banks were at 6% at the end of June.
