The instigation of Non-Performing Assets (NPAs) in Indian banks was post 2009, when world was doing quantitative easing (QE) to save them off recession in 2008. The problem of NPA in India has witnessed the gross NPA rise to 79.7% and net NPA from 2.8% in September 2015 to 4.6% in March 2016. Banking has its NPA data increasing year by year which is a serious concern for the Indian banks. In this paper, an algorithm to determine and predict NPA is proposed. The proposed algorithm creates a pattern based on NPA data sets from various banks, and features are extracted to predict and eradicate financial debts. Also, a visual banking dashboard is developed exclusively for NPAs. The learning task in the proposed Feature based Random Forest algorithm is carried out by incorporating features extracted from the dataset considered and hence improves the prediction accuracy. The result of prediction is visualized using Tableau which, not only provides insights on the data but also aids in data-driven decision making.
