As you are aware, the Government of India, Ministry of Finance, notified the Banking Law Amendments Act, 2012, vide Gazette Notification dated January 17, 2013, (published in Part II- Section 3--sub-section (ii) of the Gazette of India No.177 dated January 18, 2013), making certain amendments to the Banking Regulation Act, 1949.

2.
