From March 22-30, the bank, which has already put out a list of the assets, will auction these to asset reconstruction companies (ARCs), banks, non-banking financial companies (NBFCs) and FIs.

The accumulated value of assets on sale is Rs 6,169 crore and the actual realisation will happen depending on the reserve price and bids from the buyers.

On March 29, the bank will sell assets worth Rs 776 crore where Yashasvi Yarns, Sumita Tex Spin, Shekhawati Poly-yarn Ltd and Shakumbhari Straw NPAs stand at Rs 305 crore.

The NPA recovery mechanism has yielded results, with the SBI’s gross non-performing assets (GNPAs) declining by 18,099 crore to stand at 1,87,765 crore as on December-end 2018.

The GNPAs improved from 10.35 per cent of gross advances in December-end 2017 to 8.71 per cent in December-end 2018. Net NPAs improved from 5.61 per cent of gross advances in December-end 2017 to 3.85 per cent in December-end 2018.
