What is a Non-Banking Financial Company (NBFC)?

shares/stock/bonds/debentures/ securities
issued by Government or local authority or
other securities of like marketable nature,

A non-banking institution which is a company and
which has its principal business of receiving deposits
under any scheme or arrangement or any other manner,
or lending in any manner.
The deposits received do not involve investment, asset

Besides the above class of NBFCs the Residuary NonBanking Companies are also registered as NBFC with
the Reserve Bank of India.


(i) a NBFC cannot accept demand deposits (demand
deposits are funds deposited at a depository
institution that are payable on demand -immediately or within a very short period -- like
your current or savings accounts.)

system and as such cannot issue cheque to its
customers drawn to itself; and

The key factor for our survival & growth

NBFCs provide prompt, tailor made service with least hassles. This
more than compensates for the higher lending rates of NBFCs as
compared to Banks & FIs

the top management

NBFCs cater to a class of borrowers who :- Do not necessarily have a high income
- But have adequate net worth
- Are honest and sincere (gauged by the personal touch maintained
with them).



A company incorporated under the Companies Act, 1956 and

desirous of commencing business of non-banking financial
institution as defined under Section 45 I(a) of the RBI Act,
1934 should have a minimum net owned fund of Rs 25 lakh
(raised to Rs 200 lakh w.e.f April 21, 1999). The company is
required to submit its application for registration in the
prescribed format along with necessary documents for Banks
consideration. The Bank issues Certificate of Registration after
satisfying itself that the conditions as enumerated in Section
45-IA of the RBI Act, 1934 are satisfied.

In case a NBFC defaults in repayment of deposit what course of action

can be taken by depositors?

If a NBFC defaults in repayment of deposit, the

depositor can approach Company Law Board or
Consumer Forum or file a civil suit to recover
the deposits

Regulations on NBFC :


The NBFCs are allowed to accept/renew public deposits for a

minimum period of 12 months and maximum period of 60 months.
They cannot accept deposits repayable on demand.


NBFCs cannot offer interest rates higher than the ceiling rate
prescribed by RBI from time to time. The present ceiling is 11 per
cent per annum. The interest may be paid or compounded at rests
not shorter than monthly rests.


NBFCs cannot offer gifts/incentives or any other additional benefit

to the depositors.

iv) NBFCs (except certain AFCs) should have minimum investment

grade credit rating.

v) The deposits with NBFCs are not insured.

vi) The repayment of deposits by NBFCs is not guaranteed by RBI.

vii) There are certain mandatory disclosures about the company in the
Application Form issued by the company soliciting deposits.


RBI has been taking efforts to tighten control over NBFCs, which are more
loosely regulated than banks.

Any takeover or merger involving deposit-taking NBFCs now requires the

prior approval of RBI. In addition, the management of the merged entity
must comply with the fit and proper criteria of RBI.

RBI also chided NBFCs involved in micro-finance for charging high rates
while accessing cheaper funds from banks.

The end-borrowers do not get the benefit of low interest rates, as NBFCs are
assigned the responsibility of managing the loans. Consequently, the borrower
continues to pay the same rate of interest, which is as high as 23.6-30 per cent.
According to the banking regulator, there are 12 systematically important
non-deposit NBFCs that are lenders with an asset size of at least Rs 100 crore
engaged in micro-finance lending.
The main sources of funds for these NBFCs are borrowings from banks and
financial institutions. Most of them have received large amounts as foreign
direct investment and many of them are now largely foreign-owned,
