‘Will out defaulters, but not for credit card-like debts’

RBI wants end to bad loans but will not undermine privacy The Reserve Bank is working on a new system for making public the list of wilful defaulters, while a new mechanism is being put in place for out-of-court settlement of bad loan-related disputes, Governor Raghuram Rajan said on Saturday. “As a regulator we have no intent or desire to protect malfeasance... We are very happy to make that list public. In fact my people are working on making sure that we can put that list up in an accessible way and also (of) defaulters against whom suit has been filed because that is already public information,” he said while delivering a lecture here.

Centre nudges corporate houses to adopt juvenile homes as part of CSR

The government wants private business houses to adopt shelters for children, a majority of which are in abysmal condition because of sparse funding. Called “Adopt a Home”, the scheme launched by the Women and Child Development (WCD) ministry has sought the help of the corporate sector, business houses, organisations and individuals to run such homes and support the children living there as part of their corporate social responsibility. Inmates living in children homes are either juvenile in distress or in conflict with law. Government officials say that a majority of children homes in the country have been neglected by local administrations. “Also there have been reports galore of how inmates in many of these homes have been abused,” a ministry official said. As part of the scheme, the sponsors can focus on areas such as infrastructure, nonformal, remedial education and vocational training to help children become independent once they are out of the home.
