The banks' defaults have rallied due to the Covid pandemic. Hence, the Bank of Baroda has auctioned 570 properties and the SBI is auctioning over 1000 properties. Because of the pandemic, small businesses of less than Rs. 1 crore assets were affected largely that eventually impacted the banks' NPA scales. SBI stated it is a big opportunity for investment, the same as the Bank of Baroda.

Anand Moorthy, Business Head, Data Intelligence and Asset Management, SquareYards, earlier said, "There is a notion that an auctioned property comes at a cheaper price. But there is an expectation lapse for a prospective buyer."

However, documentation of these properties is very important along with the operational issues, and the investors should be very cautious and patient. Both commercial and residential properties have been included. The process of auction and getting the property is generally quite a lengthy procedure and might take about 1 year to be finalized. Additionally, if the auctioned property is having any due regarding maintenance or tax, the investor will be liable to pay it. So the investors should be very thorough before investing. So, one should be careful about the risks involved.
