The Indian Banks’ Association (IBA) has submitted its application to the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) seeking a license to establish Rs 6,000-crore National Asset Reconstruction Company Ltd (NARCL) or a bad bank, according to sources. NARCL was filed last month in Mumbai following registration with the Registrar of Companies (RoC).

According to sources, the company after raising the initial $ 100 and accomplishing other legal matters is approaching the RBI seeking a license to run a rebuilding business.

The RBI has a process and licensing process for the business, sources said, adding that it could take up to a few weeks to get a license from the regulator. RBI approval may come in September or October, sources said.
