2. Currently, banks are permitted to exceed the limit of 25 per cent of the total investments under Held to Maturity (HTM) category, provided the excess comprises only of SLR securities and total SLR securities held under HTM category is not more than 19.5 per cent of NDTL as on the last Friday of the second preceding fortnight.
