through the banking channel. Settlement in real time means payment transaction is not subjected
to any waiting period. The transactions are settled as soon as they are processed. Gross
settlement means the transaction is settled on one to one basis without bunching with any other
transaction.
The customer has to just fill up the application form to take advantage of economical, instant and
secure transfer through RTGS available across all branches of the Bank. The remitting customer has
to furnish the following information to the bank for effecting a RTGS remittance:
1. Amount to be remitted
2. His account number which is to be debited
3. Name of the beneficiary bank
4. The IFSC code of the receiving branch
5. Name of the beneficiary customer
6. Account number of the beneficiary customer
7. Sender to receiver information, if any
RTGS is used for both customer transactions and Inter Bank Transactions. The Operating session
for RTGS Transactions at Branches is given hereunder:
Customer Transaction (R41) - (8.00 hrs to 16.15 hrs.)
Inter-Bank Transaction (R42) (8.00 hrs to 19.30 Hrs)
(Regular days including Saturdays, except Second and Fourth Saturdays of the Month)
This cut-off time is for the messages to reach at RBI end. Therefore branches should
maintain a cushion of at least 20 to 30 minutes to avoid any rejections in message
transmission.
If the transaction fails for any reason, the amount will be credited back to the account
from which the transaction was made( Through Nodal Branch Fort Mumbai ). All RTGS
transactions are irrevocable once the account is debited and the Bank executes
transaction. Any revocation, after the payment order is executed by the bank, shall not
be binding on the Bank in the RTGS system.
Transaction Amount: The RTGS system is primarily for large value transactions. The minimum
amount to be remitted through RTGS is Rs.2 lakh. There is no upper ceiling for RTGS transactions.
There is no limit on the number of transactions per day per Customer.
Charges: For Outgoing Transactions from Rs.2 to 5 lacs, Rs.25/- per transaction is levied and for
transaction above Rs. 5 Lacs, Rs.50/- per transaction is levied. Inward transactions are free.
National Electronic Fund Transfer (NEFT)
National Electronic Funds Transfer (NEFT) system is a nation wide funds transfer system to facilitate
transfer of funds from any bank branch to any other bank branch. RBI intends that high value
transactions should be routed through RTGS and small amount transactions should be routed
through NEFT. NEFT is only for fund transfer on behalf of the customers. NEFT works on deferred
net settlement (DNS) basis which settles transactions in batches. In DNS, the settlement takes
place at a particular point of time. All transactions are held up till that time. For example, NEFT
settlement takes place 6 times a day during the week days and 3 times during Saturdays. Any
transaction initiated after a designated settlement time would have to wait till the next designated
settlement time.
The Customer should provide all the details as in the case of RTGS for conducting a NEFT
transaction. The beneficiary gets the credit on the same Day or the next Day depending on the time
of settlement. If the transaction fails for any reason, the account debited will be credited back. The

thresholed limit is 100000/- for NEFT. In case of any query, the branch can contact the dedicated
NEFT Centre set up at Service Branch, Mumbai through email neft@obc.co.in.
Batch Timings:
Starting from 8:00AM to 18.45 PM on all week days (Regular days including Saturdays, except
Second and Fourth Saturdays of the Month)
The messages sent before the above batch timings shall be included in the respective settlements
otherwise they shall be included in the next batch/day.
Note:
RTGS and NEFT is entered in Finacle using the Command HEPS. Detailed guidelines and
accounting Procedure is available on the Banks eCircular
Indian Financial System Code (IFSC) is an alpha numeric code designed to uniquely
identify the bank-branches in India. This is 11 digit code with first 4 characters representing the
banks code, the next character reserved as control character (Presently 0 appears in the fifth
position) and remaining 6 characters to identify the branch.
our circular No. HO/DIT/35/2008-2009/586 dated 09.02.2009 wherein it was informed that all
offices to ensure that all payments made by Bank to vendors, service providers and all external
agencies viz. Tax authority / Utility Payments etc. are invariably made through electronic modes.
Electronic Clearing System (ECS)
It is a mode of electronic funds transfer from one bank account to another bank account using the
services of a Clearing House. This is normally for bulk transfers from one account to many accounts
or vice-versa. This can be used both for making payments like distribution of dividend, interest,
salary, pension, etc. by institutions or for collection of amounts for purposes such as payments to
utility companies like telephone, electricity, or charges such as house tax, water tax, etc or for loan
installments of financial institutions/banks or regular investments of persons. It eliminates delays
due to postal / clearing as the amount gets directly credited to the respective customers account.
There are two types of ECS - ECS (Credit) and ECS (Debit).
ECS (Credit) is used for affording credit to a large number of beneficiaries by raising a single debit
to an account, such as dividend, interest or salary payment.
ECS (Debit) is used for raising debits to a number of accounts of consumers/ account holders for
crediting a particular institution.
Customers are required to fill up the prescribed form (No. E-1) indicating choices of periodicity of
such payment and expected number of credit and aggregate amount. Detailed procedure is given in
Clearing Operations Chapter.
OBC eTaxes
The Bank is providing this facility through which all types of direct taxes can be deposited by the
customers online through the net banking services from the comfort of their office or home. The
challan will be generated online and the same should be preserved for future reference and
records.
Procedure for e-payment:
1. To pay taxes online the taxpayer will select the relevant challan i.e. ITNS 280, ITNS 281,
ITNS 282 OR ITNS 283, as applicable.
2. Enter its PAN/TAN as applicable. There will be an online check on the validity of the
PAN/TAN entered.

Multiple approaches will be used for seeding LPG databases with bank accounts and Aadhaar
numbers. Oil Marketing Companies (OMCs) will collect Aadhaar numbers and Bank account details
at LPG distributors and through drop boxes at other locations. Bankers could also use the Pradhan
Mantri Jan Dhan Yojana methodology and data collected to assist in the seeding process.
Two modes of seeding of bank accounts in LPG database are available in this scheme:
(a) Bank accounts details captured by OMCs (Oil Marketing Companies) and bank account
information (account number + IFSC + name of account holder) will be sent to banks electronically
via NPCI and banks will confirm the veracity of the information as per their records. Thereafter
OMCs can seed that bank account information in the LPG database. (Option 1)
(b) LPG consumer can approach Bank directly. LPG consumer ID will be captured by bank at the
branches against the bank account and the pair of LPG consumer ID details and bank account
information will be then electronically sent back to OMCs by bank.(Option 2)
FINACLE MENU OPTION :

CTS : Cheque Truncation System : Under this system of Clearing
Cheque Truncation System (CTS) is a image based Clearing System (ICS), started by RBI in 2008,
for faster clearing of cheques. In CTS cheque images and Magnetic Ink Character Recognition
(MICR) data are captured at the collecting bank branch and transmitted electronically. Truncation
means, stopping the flow of the physical cheques issued by a drawer to the drawee branch.
Cheque truncation is the conversion of a physical cheque into a substitute electronic form for
transmission to the paying bank. Cheque truncation eliminates cumbersome physical presentation
of the cheque and saves time and processing costs.
In CTS, operations are divided into 3 grids i.e. Northern, Western & Southern Grid. In CTS local
clearing is abandoned and grid level authentication of the instruments is taking place.
Salient Features of the CTS Instrument :
1 . Bank/Branch Address along with IFSC code printed on the top of the cheque.
2. Standardized date Format.
3. Void Pantograph is embossed on left hand side of the cheque leaf.
4. Printer name along with printing CTS 2010
5. Rupee symbol ` instead of bilingual format.
6. Please sign above is mentioned on cheque leaf on the right hand side bottom.
In CTS it is the responsibility of the Collecting Banker to check the authenticity of the
instrument, as the same is stored at the collecting banker End.
It is also the responsibility of the collecting banker to verify the instrument under the UV
LAMP.
No Cutting is allowed in the instrument except the date, which needs to be re- authenticated
by full signature.
Signature at the instrument needs to be placed on the proper defined place i.e. right bottom
corner of the instrument.

WITH O/S UPTO Rs.10.00 Lac

Eligibility:The Approved Scheme shall cover all NPA accounts in doubtful or loss category (whether nonsuit filed, suit filed or decreed accounts) with Principal outstanding upto Rs. 10.00 Lac (including

upto Rs.1.00 lac.
The main feature of this scheme is to settle the small sized NPA accounts upto Rs.1.00 lac which
were NPA on 31.03.2014 where there is no realixalbe security available to fall back upon. The
account is to be settled at whatever maximum amount. Scheme valid till 31.03.2016.
Calculation of NPVRV of charged primary/collateral securities :
1. Considering the difficulty in realisation of dues by sale of agricultural security, the number of
discounting years be taken upto 5 years where charged security is agricultural land
2. Additional discount of 5% in NPVRV may be allowed if the owner (borrower and/ or
guarantor) of the charged property/ies dies before approval of the settlement of the account
3. During the settlement of account/s, if the borrower produces the documentary evidence
of statutory dues, the amount of statutory dues be subtracted for arriving at NPVRV

When the settlement in considered within one year from date of last failed auction then NPVRV
for property/ies shall be 85% of the last reserve price of the charged securities (failed auction).
However, valuation should not be more than one year old. Further, if the settlement is
considered after one year of date of failed auction, fresh valuation be obtained and NPVRV is
to be calculated in normal way i.e by discounting realisable value based on the expected
realization period

SOME IMPORTANT POINTS/QUESTIONS


IMPORTANT RATIOS :
Credit to deposit ratio (CD ratio): This ratio indicates how much of the advances lent by banks
is done through deposits. It is the proportion of loan-assets created by banks from the deposits
received. The higher the ratio, the higher the loan-assets created from deposits. Deposits would be
in the form of current and saving account as well as term deposits. The outcome of this ratio
reflects the ability of the bank to make optimal use of the available resources.
Capital adequacy ratio (CAR): A bank's capital ratio is the ratio of qualifying capital to risk
adjusted (or weighted) assets. The RBI has set the minimum capital adequacy ratio at 9% for all
banks. A ratio below the minimum indicates that the bank is not adequately capitalized to expand
its operations. The ratio ensures that the bank do not expand their business without having
adequate capital.

CAR = Tier I capital + Tier II capital / Risk weighted assets

It must be noted that it would be difficult for an investor to calculate this ratio as banks do not
disclose the details required for calculating the denominator (risk weighted average) of this ratio in
detail. As such, banks provide their CAR from time to time.
Tier I Capital funds include paid-up equity capital, statutory and capital reserves, and perpetual
debt instruments eligible for inclusion in Tier I capital. Tier II capital is the secondary bank capital
which includes items such as undisclosed reserves, general loss reserves, subordinated term debt,
amongst others.
Non-performing asset (NPA) ratio: The net NPA to loans (advances) ratio is used as a measure
of the overall quality of the bank's loan book. An NPA are those assets for which interest is overdue
for more than 90 days (or 3 months).
Net NPAs are calculated by reducing cumulative balance of provisions outstanding at a period end
from gross NPAs. Higher ratio reflects rising bad quality of loans.

NPA ratio = Net non-performing assets / Loans given

Provision coverage ratio: The key relationship in analysing asset quality of the bank is between
the cumulative provision balances of the bank as on a particular date to gross NPAs. It is a measure
that indicates the extent to which the bank has provided against the troubled part of its loan
portfolio. A high ratio suggests that additional provisions to be made by the bank in the coming
years would be relatively low (if gross non-performing assets do not rise at a faster clip).

Provision coverage ratio = Cumulative provisions / Gross NPAs

Return on assets (ROA): Returns on asset ratio is the net income (profits) generated by the bank
on its total assets (including fixed assets). The higher the proportion of average earnings assets,
the better would be the resulting returns on total assets. Similarly, ROE (returns on equity)
indicates returns earned by the bank on its total net worth.

ROA = Net profits / Avg. total assets

performance)

Definition of 'Balance Sheet'
A financial statement that summarizes a company's assets, liabilities and shareholders' equity at a
specific point in time. These three balance sheet segments give investors an idea as to what the
company owns and owes, as well as the amount invested by the shareholders.
The balance sheet must follow the following formula:
Assets = Liabilities + Shareholders' Equity
DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PROFIT AND LOSS ACCOUNT AND BALANCE SHEET
P&L gives you the list of Income and Expenses during a particular period, Whereas Balance sheet
shows you the Financial position of an organization in a specific point of time (date).
What is the difference between current assets and current liability
In accounting, a current asset is an asset which can either be converted to cash or used to pay
current liabilities within 12 months. Typical current assets include cash, cash equivalents, short-term
investments, accounts receivable, inventory and the portion of prepaid liabilities which will be paid
within a year.[1]
The current ratio is calculated by dividing total current assets by total current liabilities. It is
frequently used as an indicator of a company's liquidity, its ability to meet short-term obligations.
In accounting, current liabilities are often understood as all liabilities of the business that are to
be settled in cash within the fiscal year or the operating cycle of a given firm
WHY CAPITAL IS LISTED UNDER LIABILITY OF BALANCE SHEET ?
The confusion regarding owners funds being shown as liability will be automatically vanish if you
treat a business as a en entity separate from its owners. A business requires fund for fixed assets
and working capital. These funds come from two sources, the owners funds and borrowed funds.
Both these are sources of funds that the business has received. Therefore both these are therefore
coming under liability side, which is also descried as sources of funds.

COMPANY
INCORPORATING A COMPANY - APPROVAL OF NAME
The first step in the formation of a company is the approval of the name by the Registrar of
Companies (ROC) in the State/Union Territory in which the company will maintain its Registered
Office. This approval is provided subject to certain conditions: for instance, there should not be an
existing company by the same name. Further, the last words in the name are required to be
"Private Ltd." in the case of a private company and "Limited" in the case of a Public Company. The
application should mention at least four suitable names of the proposed company, in order of
preference. In the case of a private limited company, the name of the company should end with the
words "Private Limited" as the last words. In case of a public limited company, the name of the
company should end with the word "Limited" as the last word. The ROC generally informs the
applicant within seven days from the date of submission of the application, whether or not any of
the names applied for is available. Once a name is approved, it is valid for a period of six months,
within which time Memorandum of Association and Articles of Association together with
miscellaneous documents should be filed. If one is unable to do so, an application may be made for
renewal of name by paying additional fees. After obtaining the name approval, it normally takes
approximately two to three weeks to incorporate a company depending on where the company is
registered
MEMORANDUM AND ARTICLES
The Memorandum of Association and Articles of Association are the most important documents to
be submitted to the ROC for the purpose of incorporation of a company. The Memorandum of
Association is a document that sets out the constitution of the company. It contains, amongst
others, the objectives and the scope of activity of the company besides also defining the
relationship of the company with the outside world.
The Articles of Association contain the rules and regulations of the company for the management of
its internal affairs. While the Memorandum specifies the objectives and purposes for which the
Company has been formed, the Articles lay down the rules and regulations for achieving those
objectives and purposes.

The ROC will give the certificate of incorporation after the required documents are presented along
with the requisite registration fee, which is scaled according to the share capital of the company, as
stated in its Memorandum. A private company can commence business on receipt of its certificate
of incorporation.
A public company has the option of inviting the public for subscription to its share capital.
Accordingly, the company has to issue a prospectus, which provides information about the company
to potential investors. The Companies Act specifies the information to be contained in the
prospectus.
The prospectus has to be filed with the ROC before it can be issued to the public. In case the
company decides not to approach the public for the necessary capital and obtains it privately, it can
file a "Statement in Lieu of Prospectus" with the ROC.
On fulfillment of these requirements, the ROC issues a Certificate of Commencement of Business to
the public company. The company can commence business immediately after it receives this
certificate.
Certificate of Incorporation
After the duly stamped Memorandum of Association and Articles of Association, documents and
forms are filed and the filing fees are paid, the ROC scrutinizes the documents and, if necessary,
instructs the authorised person to make necessary corrections. Thereafter, a Certificate of
Incorporation is issued by the ROC, from which date the company comes in to existence. It takes
one to two weeks from the date of filing Memorandum of Association and Articles of Association to
receive a Certificate of Incorporation. Although a private company can commence business
immediately after receiving the certificate of incorporation, a public company cannot do so until it
obtains a Certificate of Commencement of Business from the ROC.
Distinction Between A Public Company And a Private Company
Following are the main points of difference between a Public Company and a Private Company :1. Minimum Paid-up Capital : A company to be Incorporated as a Private Company must have a

Relation between Inflation and Bank interest Rates
Now a days, you might have heard lot of these terms and usage on inflation and the bank interest
rates. We are trying to make it simple for you to understand the relation between inflation and bank
interest
rates
in
India.
Bank interest rate depends on many other factors, out of that the major one is inflation. Whenever
you see an increase on inflation, there will be an increase of interest rate also.
What is Inflation?
Inflation is defined as an increase in the price of bunch of Goods and services that projects the
Indian economy. An increase in inflation figures occurs when there is an increase in the average
level of prices in Goods and services. Inflation happens when there are less Goods and more
buyers, this will result in increase in the price of Goods, since there is more demand and less supply
of the goods.
What is a Repo Rate?
Whenever the banks have any shortage of funds they can borrow it from RBI. Repo rate is the rate
at which our banks borrow rupees from RBI. A reduction in the repo rate will help banks to get
money at a cheaper rate. When the repo rate increases borrowing from RBI becomes more
expensive.
What is a Reverse Repo Rate? How will it affect the Bank Loan interest rates
Reverse Repo rate is the rate at which Reserve Bank of India (RBI) borrows money from banks.
Banks are always happy to lend money to RBI since their money are in safe hands with a good
interest. An increase in Reverse repo rate can cause the banks to transfer more funds to RBI due to
this attractive interest rates. It can cause the money to be drawn out of the banking system.
Due to this fine tuning of RBI using its tools of CRR, Bank Rate, Repo Rate and Reverse Repo rate
our banks adjust their lending or investment rates for common man.
Bank Rate
This is the rate at which RBI lends money to other banks (or financial institutions. The bank rate
signals the central banks long-term outlook on interest rates. If the bank rate moves up, long-term
interest rates also tend to move up, and vice-versa. Banks make a profit by borrowing at a lower
rate and lending the same funds at a higher rate of interest. If the RBI hikes the bank rate , the

interest that a bank pays for borrowing money (banks borrow money either from each other or
from the RBI) increases. It, in turn, hikes its own lending rates to ensure it continues to make a
profit.
Call Rate
Call rate is the interest rate paid by the banks for lending and borrowing for daily fund requirement.
Since banks need funds on a daily basis, they lend to and borrow from other banks according to
their daily or short-term requirements on a regular basis.
CRR
Also called the cash reserve ratio, refers to a portion of deposits (as cash) which banks have to
keep/maintain with the RBI. This serves two purposes. It ensures that a portion of bank deposits is
totally risk-free and secondly it enables that RBI control liquidity in the system, and thereby,
inflation by tying their hands in lending money
SLR
BESIDES THE CRR, BANKS ARE REQUIRED TO INVEST A PORTION OF THEIR DEPOSITS IN GOVERNMENT SECURITIES
AS A PART OF THEIR STATUTORY LIQUIDITY RATIO (SLR) REQUIREMENTS. WHAT SLR DOES IS AGAIN
RESTRICT THE BANKS LEVERAGE IN PUMPING MORE MONEY INTO THE ECONOMY.

you initiate to turn around the Branch?
The Branch Manager shall adopt strategies depending on the specific problems pertaining to that Branch

To plug income leakage
Reducing overhead costs that can be cut
To concentrate on NPA/AUC recovery and collect un-debited interest and amounts from interest

customers. By cross-selling, banks earn commission from insurance companies and mutual funds. Banks
enter into agreements with insurance companies and asset management companies for cross-selling. Within
their own products, banks can cross-sell by the following ways: 1. Selling loan products
to depositors, 2. offering SB/current accounts to borrowers, etc.

The members of CIBIL are mostly banks, non banking financial institutions and credit card
companies. The ultimate aim of this CIBIL is to help its members to evaluate the risk involved in a
particular loan through its credit score and CIR.
Whats a CIBIL credit score and CIR?
Through the information received from its constituent members, CIBIL compiles a report (CIR
report) containing the loan history of a particular person. For example, if a person had borrowed a
gold loan from PNB and a housing term loan from ICICI, these two entries will be present in his
CIR. This will be helpful for the next bank {to which he had applied for a loan}to assess whether
the person will be able to repay the loan as he already has two loans left to pay out.
The CIBIL score is a 3 digit numeric score that ranges from 300 to 900 {the higher the better} and
it is calculated based on the kind of loans the person has borrowed and the time he has taken to
repay the loan. For example a person takes very little time to repay the loan will be given a far
better score than the person who doesnt repay his loan at all.

Q Who are Money Mules ?
Money Mules can be used to launder the proceeds of fraud schemes (e.g., phishing and identity
theft) by criminals who gain illegal access to deposit accounts by recruiting third parties to act as
money mules. In some cases these third parties may be innocent while in others they may be
having complicity with the criminals.
In a money mule transaction, an individual with a bank account is recruited to receive cheque
deposits or wire transfers and then transfer these funds to accounts held on behalf of another
person or to other individuals, minus a certain commission payment. Money mules may be recruited
by a variety of methods, including spam e-mails, advertisements on genuine recruitment web sites,
social networking sites, instant messaging and advertisements in newspapers. When caught, these
money mules often have their bank accounts suspended, causing inconvenience and potential
financial loss, apart from facing likely legal action for being part of a fraud. Many a times the
address and contact details of such mules are found to be fake or not up to date, making it difficult
for enforcement agencies to locate the account holder.

customer's identity and address should be verified.
However, if a bank has reason to believe that a customer is intentionally structuring a transaction
into a series of transactions below the threshold of Rs.50,000/- the bank should verify identity and
address of the customer and also consider filing a suspicious transaction report (STR) to FIU-IND.

walk-in-customer, full details of the customer, including complete address, telephone number etc,

financial institutions are required to verify the identity of the customers for all international money
transfer operations

Q What is Threshold limit and is Rs 10.00 lacs a default threshold limit ?


Threshold limit means the annual credits expected in a account which can be arrived at, from the
profile of the customer.
It should not be confused with turnover i.e. total of credits and debits in the account. For fixing
higher threshold limits, the officer interviewing the prospective customer must satisfy himself about
the higher limit. It should not be simply fixed on the mere request of the customer.
Earlier the default threshold limit was Rs. 10 Lacs which has since been removed.

and entities.(C-2) (Earlier 2 years) But Every two years Positive confirmation i.e. Obtaining KYC
related updates through e-mail/ letter/ telephonic conversation/ forms/ interviews/ visits etc. will be
required
Fresh Photographs will be required to be obtained from minor customers on becoming major.
Q What is the relevance of Monitoring of Transactions ?
Ongoing monitoring is the essential element of effective KYC procedure. Without regular monitoring
of transactions, all KYC procedures and process will be useless. This is the most important of the
policy that helps banks combat money laundering.
By understanding the normal and reasonable activity of the customer, the banker can easily identify
the transactions falling outside the regular pattern. This can reduce the risk of money laundering
greatly. The extent of monitoring depends on the initial risk categorization of the customer at the
time of initial customer acceptance and preparation of the profile.
In case transactions are noticed in variance with the profile or do not match the customer profile,
the account holder should be contacted for further details to the satisfaction of the branch.
If required, profile should be revised to reflect any change in the status.
Q Is collection of cheque a part of Monitoring?
Collection of cheques in clearing is one area requiring close monitoring. The branch should not
collect any cheques that
they cannot identify with the normal and reasonable activity of the customer, or
when the amount involved is not as per the profile of the customer prepared at the time of
opening of the account.
In all such cases branches must call the customer and ask him to explain the transaction. Such
cheques should not be collected and if collected, proceeds should not be released unless the
customer gives satisfactory evidence for it. Non-collection or non-release of payment should be
informed to the customer at the earliest.
Q What type of transactions are termed suspicious activities/ transactions ?
Examples of suspicious activities/ transactions are activities not consistent with the customers'
business
Corporate accounts where deposits or withdrawals are primarily in cash rather than cheques
Corporate accounts where deposits and withdrawal cheques/TTS/inward remittances/any
other means received from/made to sources apparently unconnected with corporate
business/dealings
Unusual applications for DD/TT/PO against cash
Accounts with large volume of credits through DD/TT/PO whereas the nature of business
does not justify the same
A single substantial cash deposit composed of many high denomination notes
Frequent exchange of small denomination notes for large denomination notes or vice versa
Retail deposit of many cheques but rare withdrawal for daily operations

and women to open accounts with us but for loans there will be a positive bias towards women,
said Usha Anantha subramanian the chairperson of the Bharatiya Mahila Bank. So basically,

The Banking Laws (Amendment) Bill, 2012
The key amendment brought in under the Bill and its effect on the Indian banking sector as a
whole.
AMENDMENTS
Powers Granted to RBI Under The Bill
New Bank Licenses and Greater Regulatory Oversight.
The Bill enables the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) to issue new bank licenses to corporate houses
which will give the RBI greater regulatory oversight over local banks & the ability to overrule
board of directors of a banking company for not more than 12 months and appoint an
administrator for managing the company during that period.
The Bill also seeks to increase the rates of existing monetary penalties that RBI can impose on a

bank if it disobeys RBI rules, directives or gives false information. These amendments shall be
conducive to the changing banking scenario because with the issue of new banking licenses the
need shall arise for greater regulatory control.
Acquisition of Shares and Voting Rights
Prior approval of RBI shall be needed for acquisition of 5% or more of shares or voting rights in
a banking company by any person. The RBI shall be empowered to impose such conditions as it
deems fit in this regard.
Amendment Related To Public/Private Sector Banks
Revised Voting right
Private Sector Banks: The Bill increases shareholders' voting rights from 10 per cent to 26
per cent in private sector banks, making investment attractive for foreign players.
Public Sector Banks: This Bill also enables the government to raise voting rights in PSBs to 10
(ten) per cent from the current 1 (one) per cent, acceding partially to foreign investors'
demands to have more say in Indian banking.

In the shareholders meeting voting is done on many issues (for example election of Board of
Directors, Changing name of the Company etc.) but in case of public banks the shareholders
have only 1% voting right irrespective of number of shares held so they cannot heavily
influence any decision. So this amendment will make the voting rights proportional to the
number of shares held by shareholders and will attract foreign investors to invest in Indian
banks.
Banking Merger

The Competition Commission of India will approve M&A (Mergers and acquisitions) in banks
except in the case of banks that are under trouble. In such cases, the RBI will have the final
authority,
Raising Investments

The Bill enables the nationalized banks to raise capital through "bonus" and "rights" issue and
also enable public sector banks to increase or decrease the authorized capital with approval
from the Government and RBI without being limited by the ceiling of a maximum of Rs. 3000
crore under the Banking Companies (Acquisition and Transfer of Undertakings) Act, 1970/1980.
CTR is Cash Transaction report. This report contains:
All cash transactions of the value of more than Rs. 10 Lacs or its equivalent in foreign
currency, or
A series of cash transactions individually below Rs. 10 Lacs or its equivalent in foreign
currency but integrally connected to each other where such transactions have taken place

KYC-AML Cell at Inspection Deptt. Corporate office, circulated the list of transactions under
these 61 alerts to all ROs for their looking into the matter and confirmation, if any
transaction is to be reported under STR.
Frequency: Should be furnished within 7 days of arriving at a conclusion that any transaction,
whether cash or non-cash, or a series of transactions integrally connected are of suspicious nature
UNIQUE ID TO CUSTOMERS
The Reserve Bank has extended the deadline for banks to complete the process of allotting a
unique customer identification code to their customers to March 31, 2014.
Banks, however, will have to allot the Unique Customer Identification Code (UCIC) to all customers
while entering into new relationships.
The increasing complexity and volume of financial transactions necessitate that customers do not
have multiple identities within a bank, across the banking system and across the financial system,
RBI had said.
The objective of the UCIC is to help banks identify customers, track facilities availed, monitor
financial transactions in a holistic manner and to have a better approach to risk profiling of
customers.
It also helps to smoothen banking operations for the customers.
CENTRAL REGISTRY
Pursuant to the announcement made by the Finance Minister in the budget speech for 2011-12,
Government of India, Ministry of Finance notified the establishment of the Central Registry. The
objective of setting up of Central Registry is to prevent frauds in loan cases involving multiple
lending from different banks on the same immovable property. This Registry has become
operational on March 31, 2011. The Central Registry of Securitisation Asset Reconstruction and
Security Interest of India (CERSAI), a Government Company licensed under section 25 of the
Companies Act 1956 has been incorporated for the purpose of operating and maintaining the
Central Registry under the provisions of the Securitisation and Reconstruction of Financial Assets
and Enforcement of Security Interest Act, 2002 (SARFAESI Act).
The records maintained by the Central Registry will be available for search by any lender or any
other person desirous of dealing with the property. Availability of such records would prevent frauds
involving multiple lending against the security of same property as well as fraudulent sale of
property without disclosing the security interest over such property. It may be noted that under the
provisions of Section 23 of the SARFAESI Act, particulars of any charge creating security interest
over property is required to be filed with the Registry within 30 days from the date of creation.
The Central Registry has been set up for the purpose of Registration of
(a) Security interest over Property (b) Transaction of securitization (c) Asset reconstruction
NOTE : In all the cases where equitable mortgage is created, the same has to be first registered in
CERSAI before any disbursement of loan w.e.f 01.12.2014
