The expert group consistingof 61 respondents was requested to provide leading indicators/parameters ofcredit quality and attach numerical weights to each parameter on the basis oftheir importance in the overall credit quality index. The experts were agreedon the six parameters and suggested weighting pattern based on their bankingexperience and expertise.
