A story of two lockdowns
RBI bars Yes Bank from paying curiosity on tier-2 bonds
The controversial Tier-2 bonds are again within the information as soon as once more for the incorrect causes.
PTI stories: “The Reserve Bank has asked private sector lender Yes Bank not to pay interest on tier-II bonds due on June 29 as its capital levels are below the mandatory threshold.
Interest payments on the bank’s 10.25 per cent unsecured non-convertible upper tier-II bonds issued in 2012 is due on June 29 and the city-based lender had sought the RBI nod to honour the same.
“The Reserve Bank of India has expressed its inability to accede to the bank’s request for payment of interest due as on June 29, 2020, since the bank does not meet the minimum capital requirements currently. Therefore, the bank would be unable to pay interest/coupon on the said upper tier II bonds which is due for payment on June 29, 2020,” the bank informed the exchanges on Friday.
As per the June 25, 2012 memorandum at the time of issue of the bonds, the interest due will be accumulated and paid later once the bank complies with stipulated regulatory requirements.
”….the specific features of the instrument require debt servicing to be linked to the bank meeting regulatory norms on capital adequacy, its managing director and chief executive Prashant Kumar said.
Asserting that the bank has adequate liquidity to meet all its obligations, Kumar said the coupon on these bonds is cumulative in nature and any unpaid sum will become payable once the bank meets minimum regulatory capital ratio.
The bank’s total capital adequacy ratio had stood at 8.5 per cent, including the tier-I ratio at 6.5 per cent as of March 31 this year. The regulatory requirement is to maintain the tier-I ratio above 8.875 per cent.
The bank, which had to be bailed out by a SBI-led consortium of lenders in March, is reportedly looking at a Rs 10,000-crore capital raise from new investors at present and already has enabling resolutions to raise up to Rs 15,000 crore.”

India can scale back commerce deficit with China by $8.four bn: examine
India can probably scale back its commerce deficit with China by $8.four billion over FY21-22, which is equal to 17.3% of the deficit with China and 0.3% of India’s GDP, Acuité Ratings & Research stated in a examine.
This might be achieved by the rationalisation of only a quarter of India’s imports from that nation in choose sectors the place India has well-established manufacturing capabilities, Acuité stated.
Without any important extra investments, the home manufacturing sector can substitute 25% of the whole imports from specified sectors within the first section, it added.
Suman Chowdhury, chief analytical officer, Acuité Ratings & Research, stated, “With an import of $65.1 billion and export of $16.6 billion, India recorded a trade deficit of $48.5 billion with China in FY20. While imports from China have moderately declined by 15% since FY18 due to imposition of anti-dumping duties on some products, the dependence of the domestic economy on Chinese imports remains high with direct contribution to over 30% of India’s aggregate trade deficit.”
