Madam/Sir,

Lending against security of single product – Gold jewellery

Please refer to paragraph 27 of Master Direction – Non-Banking Financial Company – Systemically Important Non-Deposit taking Company and Deposit taking Company (Reserve Bank) Directions, 2016; and paragraph 27 of Master Direction – Non-Banking Financial Company – Non-Systemically Important Non-Deposit taking Company (Reserve Bank) Directions, 2016.

2. On a review, it has been decided that NBFCs can pool gold jewellery from different branches in a district and auction it at any location within the district, subject to meeting the following conditions:

  1. The first auction has failed.

  2. The NBFC shall ensure that all other requirements of the extant directions regarding auction (prior notice, reserve price, arms-length relationship, disclosures, etc.) are met.

3. Non-adherence to the above conditions will attract strict enforcement action. The aforementioned Master Directions are being modified accordingly.

Yours faithfully,

(Manoranjan Mishra)
Chief General Manager
