Tiwari, in his petition filed in the Apex Court, said the last paragraph of the order reads: “Accounts which were considered to be standards and were not declared NPA until August 31, 2020 , should not be declared ZIP, until further orders. This meant that the accounts had to be considered standard. “

Such an order suspending the non-taxation of the NPA by banks against borrowers was overturned by the judgment of March 23, 2021, and therefore banks in accordance with the law can impose the NPA of a standard account in the event of default, Tiwari said. .
Typically, in legal parlance, a borrower’s standard account can be declared NPA if there is a repayment of 90 days or more, Tiwari said in his petition.
