Arcil to extend recovery agency service to banks

The Asset Reconstruction Company is planning to extend its recovery agency service to banks for corporate non-performing assets. In return, Arcil will earn fees from the banks for the recoveries made.
“Under the recovery agency service, the portfolio will remain in the bank’s balance sheet. But we will do the recovery for the banks. Banks will authorise us to do that,” said P Rudran, managing director & CEO, Arcil.
“The price banks were seeking and the price asset reconstruction companies were prepared to pay were not in tune with each other,” he said.
Arcil wants to extend this service as the basic issue has been the pricing of assets in last two years. According to Arcil, this is a win-win solution coming at a time when the corporate loan portfolios of banks are swelling due to NPAs, and will be particularly helpful in case where a deal cannot be concluded due to issues in pricing.
