Dear Sir,

(External) Rupee Accounts (NRE Accounts)

Please refer to our Circular UBD.CO.BPD. /14/13.01.00/2003-04 dated September 17, 2003 on the captioned subject.

2. On a review it has been decided that, until further notice, the interest rates on fresh repatriable Non Resident (External) Rupee (NRE) Deposits for one to three years contracted effective close of business in India on October 18, 2003 should not exceed 25 basis points (as against 250 basis points announced on July 17, 2003 and 100 basis points on September 17, 2003) above the LIBOR / SWAP rates for US dollar of corresponding maturity.

3. The maturity period of repatriable NRE deposits would continue to be one to three years and the interest rates as determined above for three year deposits would also be applicable in case the maturity period exceeds three years.

4. The changes in interest rates will also apply to repatriable NRE deposits renewed after their present maturity period.

5 An amending directive UBD.BPD. Dir. 1/13.01.00/2003-04 dated October 18, 2003 is enclosed. It may be seen there from that the LIBOR / SWAP rates as on the last working day of the preceding month would form the base for fixing ceiling rates for the interest rates that would be offered effective from the following month.

6. Kindly acknowledge receipt of the circular to the Regional Offices.

Yours faithfully,
