Balancing the Risks and Profits of One Time Settlements

Systems for management of non-performing assets help allocate time, efforts, and investments for better recoveries

The digital age has simplified getting a loan with online pay outs and reliable loan management services. But, for lenders collections remain a challenge. For unpaid loans termed as non-performing assets (NPAs), Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has prescribed One Time Settlements (OTS) for relief to both borrowers and Banks.


In this day and age, timely repayments are key for banks to grow. For this, proactive efforts towards defaulters helps in monitoring settlements for credit, liquidity, and operational risks. Here, collection software boosts the maximum value from settled payments by enabling faster collaboration and timely measures.


Banks which still use manual processes to settle payments are burdened by risks arising in data collection, transaction monitoring, and post reconciliation adjustments. Moreover, one-time settlement solutions integrate with credit monitoring systems to optimize efficiency for repayments.
