Technology has played the important role in that as the transparency has increased while assessing the customer credibility by the bank before giving the loan. A healthy banking system is essential for any economy striving to achieve growth and remain stable in competitive global business environment. Indian banks are favorable on growth, asset quality and profitability; RBI and Government have made some notable changes in policies and regulation to help strengthen the sector. These changes include strengthening prudential norms, enhancing the payments system and integrating regulations of commercial banks.

One of the major drawbacks of SCBs is its NPAs. The best indicator for the health of the banking industry in a country is its level of Non-performing assets (NPAs). NPAs are one of the major concerns for banks in India and in many countries. It reflects the performance of banks and the growth of the economy as well in the broader aspect. Reduced NPAs generally gives the impression that banks have strengthened their credit appraisal processes over the years and growth in NPAs involves the necessity of provisions, which bring down the overall profitability of banks. The Indian banking sector is facing a serious problem of NPA specially the government sector banks where the political influence is more. To improve the efficiency and profitability of banks the NPA need to be reduced and controlled. This paper deals with understanding the concept of NPAs and major causes for an account becoming non-performing and strategies for managing NPA in Indian schedule commercial banks and using the using the current technology so it could be identified before it's becomes the severe for banks.
