The economic scenerio do not suggest possible improvement in growth rates; the RBI appears to have done it with lot of reluctance. The present bad debit ratios suggest there will be more bad debts to banks. Our politicians are worried for their images and not real time issues. The big borrowers are only exploiting banks at the cost of depositors.
