NITI AAYOG’s Rajiv Kumar Called Extraordinary Steps to Tackle Current Issues with Financial Sector

Sharing is caring!

Vice Chairman of NITI Aayog Rajiv Kumar has termed the ongoing situation in financial sector as unprecedented and called for extraordinary steps to tackle it.

“This is an unprecedented situation for the government. In the last 70 years, we have not faced this sort of liquidity situation where the entire financial sector is in a churn, and nobody is trusting anybody else,” Kumar said. “Within the private sector, nobody wants to lend to anybody else. Everyone is sitting on cash,” he said while speaking at the Mindmine Summit 2019, the flagship event of the Hero Group.

Kumar said the government must do whatever it can to remove apprehensions of the private sector. “The whole nature of the game has changed in the past four years after demonetisation, GST and IBC. In the earlier period, you had 10, 20, 30, 35 per cent of cash sloshing around which used to help people. That has become much less now,” he said.
