Which of the following institution publishes the Financial Stability Reports?
Answer with explanationAnswer: Option B
The Financial Stability Reports are published by Reserve Bank of India, after approved by FSDC SubCommittee by taking inputs from financial sector regulators i.e. RBI, SEBI, PFRDA, IRDAI including Ministry of Finance.
These are periodic exercise for reviewing the nature, magnitude and implications of risks that may have a bearing on the macroeconomic environment, financial institutions, markets and infrastructure.
The FSR July 2020 highlights:
The capital to risk-weighted assets ratio (CRAR) of Scheduled Commercial Banks (SCBs) edged down to 14.8 per cent in March 2020 from 15.0 per cent in September 2019.
Their gross non-performing asset (GNPA) ratio declined to 8.5 per cent from 9.3 per cent.
Macro stress tests for credit risk indicate that the GNPA ratio of all SCBs may increase from 8.5 per cent in March 2020 to 12.5 per cent by March 2021 under the baseline scenario; the ratio may escalate to 14.7 per cent under a very severely stressed scenario.
