The banking sector, a cornerstone of the financial industry, plays a pivotal role in facilitating economic transactions, managing funds, and providing financial services. Comprising commercial, investment, and central banks, it serves as a vital catalyst for economic growth, monetary stability, and wealth management in national and global economies. 

Non-Performing Assets (NPAs) are financial assets held by banks and financial institutions that cease to generate income for the lender. When borrowers fail to meet their repayment obligations for a specified period, these assets are classified as NPAs, indicating potential financial distress and impacting the institution’s balance sheet.
