Bad loans and stressed assets in Indian banks are estimated at Rs 10 trillion ($153.49 billion), Chief Economic Adviser Arvind Subramanian said on Wednesday.

India announced on Tuesday a Rs 2.11 trillion recapitalization plan for its state-owned banks over the next two years, in a bid by Prime Minister Narendra Modi to tackle a major drag on the economy that has frustrated his attempts to boost growth.
