More trouble for LVB

Penalty on LVB comes at a time when it is facing several regulatory restrictions. In September, RBI placed the private lender under the prompt corrective action (PCA)on account of high level of non-performing assets (NPAs), inadequate capital and negative return on assets (RoA). Further, last week, RBI rejected the proposal to merge LVB with Indiabulls Housing Finance Ltd.
