India's banks remain weighed down by a large non-performing loan burden, which has been aggravated by the crisis, and the continued dominance of state-owned institutions. Will the government carry through its latest reforms and allow the sector to take full advantage of the boom in digital transactions? Meanwhile, fund-raising via the equity markets is expanding at the fastest rate in more than a decade. Will the momentum be maintained?

In the third of a series of online, agenda-setting debates organised by the Financial Times and The Indian Express, leaders in policy, banking and finance, from India and overseas, discuss whether the banking sector and capital markets have sufficient capacity to support the recovery.

Why Attend?
To strengthen its economic and political power, India needs its industry to grow, and that depends on a healthy banking sector and supportive capital markets.

The government’s latest reforms, including plans to privatise two state banks, may help boost stability and allow the sector to take full advantage of the boom in digital transactions and the advances in fintech. But will they be carried through? Meanwhile, fund-raising via the equity markets is expanding at the fastest rate in more than a decade. Will the momentum be maintained? Can credit markets be developed to provide further financing?
