After the Punjab National Bank and the Allahabad Bank, Punjab and Sind Bank has reported a Rs 238.30 crore fraud by the Bhushan Power and Steel company.

In a regulatory filing on Wednesday, Punjab and Sind Bank said it has been defrauded of Rs 238.30 crore by the Bhushan Power and Steel company (BPSL).

"On the basis of Forensic Audit Investigation findings and CBI filing FIR, on suo moto basis, against the company and its directors, alleging diversion of funds from banking system, a fraud of Rs 238.30 crore is being reported by the bank to the RBI," it said.

However, the bank said that "in the accounts of the company (BPSL), the bank has already made provisions amounting to Rs 1,89.35 crore, as per prescribed prudential norms".

The state-run bank further noted that it has been observed that the company has misappropriated bank funds, manipulated account books to raise funds from consortium lender banks.

At present, the case is at the National Company Law Tribunal (NCLT) in an advance stage and the bank expects good recovery in the account, the Punjab and Sind Bank said.
