Last week, the National Company Law Appellate Tribunal (NCLAT) had allowed banks to declare their defaulting accounts of Infrastructure Leasing & Financial Services (IL&FS) and its group companies as non-performing assets.

"In view of the NCLAT order dated 2 May, 2019...the instructions contained in (24 April) circular stand withdrawn," the RBI said on Wednesday.

The circular had asked banks and financial institutions to disclose their exposure to IL&FS and its group entities as the NCLAT verdict was pending.

The cash-strapped IIL&FS L&FS group is sitting on a debt of about Rs 94,000 crore.

Several group companies have defaulted on the payment of interest payment on loans.
