PSBs Recover After Slump

This also happened barely a day after a collective meltdown of PSB shares on the market, which declined after an RBI proposition for reorientation of operations, including conditions for giving out loans to customers. The Reserve Bank of India published a draft on a harmonised prudential framework for lenders, thereby tightening the norms for lenders.

Shares of major banking firms, including SBI, and PNB, slumped. Interestingly, these PSBs appear to have reversed that trend, as SBI, Bank of India, and Punjab National Bank are all trading in green. All the aforementioned stocks are trading with gains of over 1 per cent on average.

in addition, Nifty Bank is also trading in red, with a 0.58 per cent slump in numbers at 14:39 IST
