More details on the offer are awaited.
This is not the first time India's largest bank has given chance to its customers to repay loan via OTS route. Last year during the same time, the bank had announced OTS of student loan dues in Kerala state.
In August, the government had said that the public sector banks (PSB) have settled loans worth Rs.3,445 crore through one-time settlement (OTS) mechanism in the current fiscal till June.
The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has provided the framework under which banks can have their own board approved policy for OTS or compromise settlements.
