Fitch Ratings has recently downgraded the national rating of Development Credit Bank's (DCB) Rs 1,600 crore subordinated debt programme to A from A+. The downgrade reflects the delay in implementing the bank's plan to write off the legacy non-performing loans (NPLs), and diversify and grow its income streams.
