State Bank of India Chairman Dinesh Khara on Friday said the National Asset Reconstruction Company (NARCL) or bad bank and India Debt Resolution Company Ltd (IDRCL) are ready to commence operations and a total of 38 NPA accounts worth Rs 82,845 crore have been identified to be transferred to NARCL initially.

"In the phase one, about 15 accounts aggregating to Rs 50,000 crore are expected to be transferred to the NARCL. We are trying to have these accounts transferred within this financial year after completing all the required processes,” Khara told reporters.

He said while public sector banks have taken a majority stake in NARCL, IDRCL will be majorly owned by private sector banks.

The arrangement will be on principal-agent basis and final approval and ownership for the resolution will lie with the NARCL as the principal, he added.
