Abstract: The purpose of the research paper is to investigate the impact of Non-Performing Loan (NPL) on Capital Adequacy (CA) of bank in a developing country as Bangladesh. The study is important in the context of Bangladesh as growing non-performing loan is eroding significant portion of bank’s capital as an assumed factor without empirical evidence to show the extent of the impact. The study employs a sample size of 40 consisting of the data of Capital Adequacy Ratio (CAR) against Non-Performing Loan (NPL) ratio for last 10 years (2008-2017) generated from four categories of bank. Test of hypothesis, correlation, regression analysis and trend analysis have been conducted using SPSS software. The paper provides empirical evidence that non-performing loan has significant impact on capital adequacy of bank. This study will help the policy makers to control to the desired NPL ratio for ensuring CAR prescribed by the prudential regulatory requirement of central bank. This study seems to be the first attempts to address such an issue in the context of Bangladesh.
