Mumbai: Finance minister Piyush Goyal on Tuesday said the government is open to discuss the issues that the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) had raised recently over the lack of powers in regulating state-run lenders.

Amidst criticism that the apex bank had failed in its regulatory oversight over government-owned banks following the Rs 13,500-crore PNB scam, RBI governor Urjit Patel had recently blamed it on the lack of powers to control them.

"The government is open to discuss with the RBI all the issues it has on regulating state-run banks," Goyal told an industry event here this evening.

The minister also ruled out government pairing its stake in public sector banks (PSBs), saying there is no proposal with the government to lower its ownership in state-run banks to under 51 per cent in 20 of them.

The statement comes amidst strong opposition from banking and LIC unions to the government plans to sell its majority stake in the crippled IDBI Bank to LIC. Admitting that the banking system has failed the public in meeting their high expectations of them, Goyal said bankers have failed to live up to the high standards and ethics expected of them.

He also said the government will back all the

state-run banks with enough capital. Admitting that PSBs had faced political interferences in the past, Goyal said but under this government no minister is interfering in the operational matters of the lenders.

A day after accepting the Sunil Mehta panel recommendation to set up an asset management company (AMC), that will function like a bad bank to resolve smaller loan defaults of up to Rs 500 crore, Goyal said liquidation can't be the panacea for all NPAs as there are genuine business failures which need to be resolved.
