He further said that in order to deal with default due to economic slowdown, the Government has taken steps to revive the stressed sectors,  including steel, textiles, power and roads. 
 
He said that the Government has also done recapitalization of banks by providing Rs. 25,000 crore in the Union Budget 2015-16 as well as in this year’s budget. 
 
Jaitley said that the Bankruptcy Law has been cleared by the Joint Parliament Standing Committee and is likely to be discussed in the current Budget Session of the Parliament.
