·        The Reserve Bank of India has taken public sector lender Indian Overseas Bank (IOB) out of the Prompt Corrective Action (PCA) framework (PCA) to improve its financial and credit profile.

·        IOB was placed under PCA in October 2015 due to high Net-Performing Assets (NPA) and negative Return on Assets (ROA).

·        The decision will provide greater freedom to the Chennai-based lender to extend credit specifically to the corporations and to develop the network subject to the prescribed norms.
