Things Not Getting Better for Government Banks
The vicious cycle of Government banks seems to have started all over again. The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) seems to have called a halt on the cleaning-up process.

Tata Steel could be considering withdrawing from talks on a planned merger of its European business with German conglomerate Thyssenkrupp, British media reported on Sunday. The Sunday Times newspaper said that Tata Steel is considering a "daring plan to break off a planned merger" of its European business with those of the German conglomerate. Such a deal with the German steel giant, talks on which were announced by Tatas last year, could lead to the formation of a European steel behemoth with blast furnaces in Wales, the Netherlands and Germany.  According to the paper, however, the deal has been taking time to close as Tata Steel tries to solve the problem of its 15 billion pounds British steel pensions scheme.  The company has been engaged with stakeholders in Britain to find a structural solution and a way forward with regard to the affordability of the legacy pension scheme liabilities. Tata Steel shares closed at Rs492.95, down 0.41% on the BSE.
