State-owned PNB today said it has followed lawful avenues to recover its dues following Rs 11,400 crore swindling of funds allegedly by jewellery designer Nirav Modi and associates.

The PSU bank also asked Modi to come up with a concrete and implementable plan to settle the loss. PNB had disclosed about the scam on February 14 through a regulatory filing.

Meanwhile, PNB will move out of NSE's Nifty Midcap 100 index in April. The changes were announced yesterday by India Index Services and Products Ltd (IISL), an arm of National Stock Exchange as part of its periodic review. -- PTI
