New Delhi: State-owned Syndicate Bank expects to mobilise Rs 4,000 crore from recovery of bad loans during the current fiscal.

Besides, the bank is likely to get fund from the government during the financial year for pushing up credit growth. "We have requested the government for infusion. The government will decide as to how to be given (it to) the bank" Mahapatra said.
