KOLKATA | MUMBAI: Import finance , crucial for ensuring critical supplies for India’s industrial and consumer needs, faces serious restrictions as banks clamp down on issue of letters of undertaking (LoUs) after a bunch of employees at Punjab National Bank were caught issuing fake LoUs in the country’s biggestever corporate fraud.Lenders such as Axis Bank, Canara Bank, IDBI Bank have either cut back on issuing LoUs or stopped them for certain categories one week after the scam unfolded.
The central bank has asked lenders to step up the monitoring of debits from their nostro accounts after a cyberattack led to $2 million being siphoned off from the accounts of City Union Bank last week.A nostro account refers to a foreign-currency account that a lender holds in another bank overseas.
MUMBAI: Early last week, Punjab National Bank ( PNB ) told Indian stock exchanges it has been the victim of an elaborate fraud that could cost the stretched banking system Rs 11,400 crore in the very least.The startling announcement of the country’s biggest banking fraud seems to have capped a tortuous journey for Indian public lenders since they began disclosing a couple of seasons ago their bad debts that have now swelled to Rs 10 lakh crore.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
