Asset Reconstruction Companies(ARCs)
A large number of banks and Financial Institutions across the globe are struggling with their bad assets or Non-Performing Assets which are very detrimental to the healthy growth of the business. Essentially, the work of cleaning up these bad assets from lenders’ balance-sheet is of utmost importance. But, to recover those stressed assets, banks cannot start running after their defaulters as it distracts them from their core activities and that’s why lenders need a specialized institution that can help them clean up their balance sheet, helping them in focusing on their business activities and grow more.
These institutions are called Asset Reconstruction companies (ARCs). An ARC basically buys the pool of bad assets and acquires legal rights (viz., management control of borrower’s business, auctions of securities, etc.) from the lenders on mutually agreed values, by paying cash or depositing security receipts. Once these rights are acquired, an ARC starts its recovery processes by exploiting various legal and statutory provisions available to them within the geographical jurisdiction of their business operation. In other words, the business operation involved in the recovery process is subject to the regulatory and legal compliance of the local authorities.
In India, one such authority that regulates the operation of ARCs is the Reserve Bank of India (RBI). Similarly, legal remedies such as the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code, SARFAESI Act, etc. helps them to get hassle-free and early resolutions of cases.
What is ARC Process Automation Software?
- Once an ARC has purchased a pool of bad assets, the bank provides details such as the Borrower’s name, Address details, Principal amount and Interest details, etc. to ARCs typically in a .CSV files.
- These files are used by ARCs in setting up various processes, like ‘One-Time Settlement’, ‘re-scheduling of interest payment term for borrower’, ‘monitoring and processing the payment receipt’ etc.
- Furthermore, each of these processes holds a set of activities. For example, a process named ‘one-time settlement’ has multiple activities, such as case initiation (bringing a borrower’s details into a tray), ‘distribution of cases among recovery agents’, ‘collection of payment’, ‘payment receipt processing’, ’telephonic conversation follow-ups’, etc. Now, these activities will be performed by various users of an ARC, sitting at different levels of the team hierarchy.
- Similarly, post-collection of payment, re-adjustment in the borrower’s account – re-calculation of interest, cost incurred in receiving the payment, promise-to-pay follow-ups, approval of part payment requests, etc. are managed as well. Apart from these operations, an ARC is also required to manage its master investor’s details, trust details, access rights of processes to its users, performance reports, compliance monitoring, and so on.
So, in light of the above-mentioned operational requirements of Asset Reconstruction Companies, ARC processing software is used to provide complete automation of the entire
