When the lending Bank files an application before the DRT for recovery of outstanding amount from the borrower which has become NPA, such application filed as per Recovery of Dues Due to Banks & Financial Institutions Act is called Original Application or O.A.
When anybody aggrieved with the notice issued by the lending Bank to the borrower u/s 13(4) of SARFAESI Act,2002 files an application before the DRT, it is called SARFAESI Application or S.A.
So, in the case of O.A., the Bank is the Applicant & in case of S.A., the Bank is the Defendant.
