What are non-performing assets?

Non-performing assets (NPAs) are loans that borrowers have failed to repay for a specified period, usually 90 days. These assets can impact a bank's financial health, leading to a decrease in profitability. Monitoring and managing NPAs are crucial for financial institutions to maintain stability and ensure the effective deployment of funds.
