What Is a Non-Performing Asset (NPA)?

  • A nonperforming asset (NPA) refers to a classification for loans or advances that are in default or in arrears.
  • A loan is in arrears when principal or interest payments are late or missed.
  • A loan is in default when the lender considers the loan agreement to be broken and the debtor is unable to meet his obligations.
  • In India, a non-performing asset (NPA) is defined as a loan or advance for which the principal or interest payment remained overdue for a period of 90 days.
