Amendments to NBFC Regulations-Ceiling on rate of interest

DNBS (PD) CC.No.14/02.01/2000-01
March 31, 2001

To All Non-Banking Financial Companies
including Chit Fund and Nidhi Companies

Dear Sirs,

Amendments to NBFC Regulations-Ceiling on rate of interest

It has been decided that, keeping in view the prevailing interest rates in the entire financial system, the interest rates on deposits of NBFCs should be reduced by two percentage points, from the present level of 16 percent per annum to 14 per cent per annum, with immediate effect. The new rates of interest are applicable to fresh public deposits and renewals of matured public deposits on and from April 1, 2001. The ceiling rate of interest of 14 per cent has also been extended to miscellaneous non-banking companies and nidhi companies.

2. You are requested to ensure meticulous compliance with the new ceiling on rate of interest. Other conditions relating to the rests at which interest can be compounded, rate of brokerage, etc., remain unchanged. It is also reiterated that the NBFCs are strictly prohibited from payment of any incentive, gifts, etc., to the depositors.

  1. A copy each of the amending Notifications No. 146 and 147 is enclosed.

Yours faithfully,
