Why is it fake News?
After UCO Bank and IDBI Bank, at least 10 more public sector banks (PSBs) are facing regulatory action, or prompt corrective action (PCA), of the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) in the face of worsening financial ratios. PCA is an aggresive and interventionist step by the RBI that force the banks to clean up their NPAs.
