PNB expects the RBI to not extend the moratorium on terms loans beyond August 31, even as it is open to making restructuring available for individual borrowers facing reduction in incomes.

“Roughly about 5-6 per cent of our credit book may be eligible under the restructuring profile,” SS Mallikarjuna Rao, MD and CEO, PNB told reporters through a video conference. Exact details on restructuring should be clear by September after guidelines from an expert committee led by former banker KV Kamath are announced by the RBI, he said.
