Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman has said that the Reserve Bank of India has taken a slew of steps in view of the difficulties being faced due to COVID-19. In a series of tweets, the Minister said, these steps aimed at maintaining adequate liquidity in the system, incentivising bank credit flows, easing financial stress and enabling the normal functioning of markets. She said, RBI has increased the ways and means advance limit for states to 60 per cent over and above the level as on 31st of March to help state governments tide over cash flow problems due to a temporary dip in revenue collections.
 
The Minister said, it has now been decided that the Non Performing Asset, NPA classification norms will exclude the three month moratorium window that banks are allowed to give on loan repayments to ease the worries of MSMEs that are in danger of becoming NPA accounts.
