The Indian economy is perhaps on the brink of a slowdown. At the same time, the RBI and its authorities are under scrutiny for the perceived lack of banking control. Result - the Indian banker is losing sleep over both slow growth and heightened risk.

It needs to ensure that businesses have an enabling environment to succeed, even as fraud is detected and prevented.
