Mumbai, Sep 28 (ANI): Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley on Monday addressed the 68th Annual General Meeting of Indian Banks’ Association and cited the dire need of providing autonomy for banks.

He also said that efforts are being made to infuse more professionalism in the Banking Bureau. He stated that the sectors that are stressed like state discoms, power, steel and et al are also being paid heed to in order to curb NPAs (Non-Performing Assets) in banks.
