The cases which are at a mature stage of the resolution under the Code, he said the amount would be another Rs 50,000 crore. Further, he added that 1.2 lakh crore coming through resolutions and another Rs 1.2 lakh crore from pre-admission settlements will lead to recoveries of Rs 2.4 lakh crore in the coming months.

The Corporate Affairs Secretary noted that there are non-standard NPA accounts that have been converted to standard accounts by virtue of borrowers paying back the overdue amount and that figure would be around Rs 45,000 to 50,000 crore. Together, the amount will be close to Rs 3 lakh crore in terms of stressed assets that have been directly and indirectly impacted by the Code, he added.
