MUMBAI: The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has declined to pass on information about non-performing assets (NPAs) and loan defaulters that the Securities and Exchange Board of India (Sebi) has asked for in the past year, according to two people with knowledge of the development.

He said that removing material within an hour is important because it's "the critical window in which the greatest damage is done." The EU's executive body said "propaganda that prepares, incites or glorifies acts of terrorism" must be taken offline.
