· The Reserve Bank of India has taken public sector lender UCO Bank out of the Prompt Corrective Action (PCA) framework on improving financial and credit profiles.
· This decision gives more freedom to the bank to lend, especially to corporations, and to develop the network subject to the prescribed norms.
· The Kolkata-based lender was placed under PCA in May 2017 due to high net net-performing assets (NPA) and negative return on assets (ROA).
