Weekly Economics Seminar by Nirupama Kulkarni

AC 02 LR 105

Title: The Unintended Consequences of Regulatory Forbearance Speaker: Nirupama Kulkarni, Research Director, CAFRAL Abstract: The Reserve Bank of India enacted a series of ‘asset-quality’ forbearance measures during the global financial crisis.
