Explain me what are the Non Performing assets of a company?

Submitted by: Muhammad
A NPA is an obligation payable to the bank which has not been made or the interest and principal amount has not been paid on the due time. NPA is the loan or credit provided by the bank to its customers which could not be recovered in due time. Thus NPA is somehow not yielding any income to the lender either in the form of principal or interest payments. NPA is also known as “bad debts”.

NPA is shown at the assets side of the balance sheet whereas deposits are shown at the liability side.

If there is any recent story or news regarding NPA, then revise it thoroughly. For ex:- Recently, United bank of India was marred in loss due to its rising NPA. So was the case with Kotak Mahindra Bank.
