Why is IBAPI E-auction conducted?
The election basically conducted to sell the property of the people who are declared defaulted by the banks because of their inability to pay the loans. Banks seize their property and auction them to recover the amount of loan extended.
When the borrowers do not pay 3 EMIs consecutively, the banks usually send a legal notice to the borrower, who needs to respond to the notice within 60 days of receiving it, if the payment is received, the notice is withdrawn, however, if he is not able to pay the loan, his property is auctioned. The borrower can also submit an objection which is basically a justification or reasoning of why the EMI has not been paid.
The bank usually proceeds with the auction if there is no response after the expiration date of the notice or is not satisfied by the response of the notice.
