Credit under dairy segment of Agriculture and Allied Activities-Treatment under Indirect Finance to Agriculture

December 19, 2011 634 Views 0 comment Print

A doubt has been expressed on the financial activities which promote dairy development in the districts. As credit under the dairy segment (including procurement, storage, processing, collection, transportation, etc.) primarily benefits small/marginal farmers and tiny units, it has been decided that bank credit to all activities which contribute to the development of dairy business would be treated as indirect finance to agriculture under priority sector. However, due care may be exercised by banks to ensure that the ultimate beneficiaries are farmers engaged in dairy farming, who will benefit from such investment.

With a view to providing greater flexibility to RRBs in mobilising non-resident deposits and also in view of the prevailing market conditions, it has been decided to deregulate interest rates on Non-Resident (External) Rupee (NRE) Deposits and Ordinary Non-Resident (NRO) Accounts (the interest rates on term deposits under Ordinary Non-Resident (NRO) Accounts are already deregulated). Accordingly, RRBs are free to determine their interest rates on both savings deposits and term deposits of maturity of one year and above under Non-Resident (External) Rupee (NRE) Deposit accounts and savings deposits under Ordinary Non-Resident (NRO) Accounts with immediate effect. However, interest rates offered by RRBs on NRE and NRO deposits cannot be higher than those offered by them on comparable domestic rupee deposits.
