Calling at odd hours and use of foul language by loan recovery agents is unacceptable, Reserve Bank of India (RBI) Governor Shaktikanta Das said on Friday.

“In the context of customer service, another area which is engaging the attention of the RBI is the harsh recovery methodsused by certainlenders, without having adequate checks and controls over their recovery agents,” Das said at an event.

According to Das, the RBI has received several complaints from customers regarding recovery agents calling at odd hours. “We have received complaints of customers being contacted even past midnight. There are also complaints of recovery agents using foul language. Such kind of actions by recovery agents are unacceptable and pose a reputational risk for the financial entities themselves,” he said, adding that the RBI has taken serious note of such instances and will not hesitate to take stringent action.
