Dear Sir,
Exposure Norms: Applicability of Non-Banking Financial (Non-Deposit Accepting or Holding) Companies Prudential Norms (Reserve Bank) Directions, 2007 to standalone Primary Dealers
Please refer to our circular IDMD.PDRD.No.19/03.64.00/2010-11 RBI/2010-11/142 dated July 27,2010 wherein standalone Primary Dealers (PDs) were advised to adhere to the exposure limits prescribed in paragraph 18 of the Notification DNBS.193 DG(VL)-2007 dated February 22 , 2007 updated till June 30, 2010 and issued vide the circular RBI/2010-11/18 DNBS (PD) CC No.178/03.02.001/2010-11 dated July 1, 2010 on Non-Banking Financial (Non-Deposit Accepting or Holding) Companies Prudential Norms (Reserve Bank) Directions, 2007.
2. The matter has since been reviewed in the context of the need to further facilitate market making activities of the standalone PDs in corporate bonds. Accordingly, it has been decided to enhance the exposure limits of the standalone PDs from 15 per cent to 25 per cent of their NOF to single borrower and from 25 per cent to 40 per cent of their NOF to group borrowers.
3. The above guidelines are effective from the date of the circular.
Yours faithfully
