Image result for Karnataka Bank

Mangaluru, Feb 19: Karnataka Bank has reported to the Reserve Bank of India a fraud in its credit facilities extended to IL&FS Transportation Networks Ltd with an outstanding balance of Rs 34.16 crore.

"The above entity had availed credit facilities from us during 2016 under multiple banking arrangements wherein our bank was one of the member banks and during 2018, the borrowing account was classified as a non-performing asset and has been fully provided for."

"As such, there is no impact on financials of the bank going forward," said the private sector lender in a statement issued on Friday.

IL&FS, a major infrastructure financing and construction company, collapsed in late 2018 after a series of defaults that triggered fear of contagion in India's financial sector and forced the government to take control and overhaul its board.

Image result for Karnataka without RT-PCR negative certificates: Health Minister

Bengaluru, Feb 20: Karnataka Health Minister Dr K Sudhakar said, we have issued circulars for COVID-19 after seeing the surge in Maharashtra and Kerala and both the states share borders with us.

"On average, 4,000-5,000 cases being reported in Kerala and 5,000-6,000 in Maharashtra daily. We share borders with them. So, we issued circulars. Unless we see RT-PCR negative certificates from those coming from these states they will not be permitted to enter the state," Sudhakar told reporters.

The Health Minister further said that the state has not found any South African strain or Brazilian strain (of COVID-19).

"We have not found any South African strain or Brazilian strain. All that we have found is the UK strain, only in those passengers who travelled from the UK to Bengaluru. We have not allowed it to spread in the society," he said.

"We have inoculated over 6 lakh people in Karnataka. However, I am not satisfied with the percentage of total inoculation. I hope all the health workers will understand the importance of taking vaccination," he said.
