Capital Adequacy – Risk weightage on Lending through Collateralized Borrowing and Lending Obligation (CBLO)

Investing by NBFCs in instruments like Collateralized Borrowing and Lending Obligations (CBLOs) results in their exposure to Central Counter Parties (CCPs) like Clearing Corporation of India Ltd. (CCIL).

2. It is therefore clarified that the counterparty credit risk, arising out of exposure of NBFCs to CCIL on account of securities financing transactions (CBLOs) will carry a risk weight of zero, as it is presumed that the CCP’s exposures to their counterparties are fully collateralised on a daily basis, thereby providing protection for the CCP’s credit risk exposures. The deposits / collaterals kept by NBFCs with CCIL will attract a risk weight of 20%.

3. A copy each of amending Notifications No. DNBS. 211 / CGM (ANR)-2009 and Notification No. DNBS. 212/CGM (ANR)-2009 both dated December 1, 2009 is enclosed.

Yours sincerely,
