New Delhi: Following the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) identifying 12 accounts that are responsible for 25 percent of non-performing assets (NPAs), the central bank on Friday said it has no plans to come out with a next list any time soon.

"If you look at it (NPAs), RBI had a detailed circular. Twelve cases have been referred for resolution by Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code (IBC). Other (bad loan) cases, banks are encouraged to resolve in six months` time," RBI Deputy Governor S.S. Mundra said.

"Where is the question of quickly coming out with the second list," he said.
