Yes you can but you have to prove defimation and justify amount of compensation

It is doubtful in the present case. S. 19 of SARFAESI Act provides right to the borrower to receive compensation on the DRT/ DRAT/ HC holding that the possession of secured assets under S. 13 (4) is not in accordance with the provisions of the Act and rules framed thereunder. Hence, a remedy is available under SARFAESI act and as such a separate suit for tortious liability will not lie.

In any case, please go through RBI circular on Asset Classification and Provisioning Norms, since default in payment of interest is only one of the reasons for classifying the account as NPA. You can also call prefer reply to the Bank requesting them to furnish the specific reason for classifying the Account as NPA.

The reason for classifying the account as NPA may be ascertained in any case before preferring any litigation.
