To All SGL/CSGL Account holders,

Dear Sir/Madam,

Direct Access to Negotiated Dealing System-Order Matching (NDS-OM)

Please refer to our circular IDMD.DOD.No. 5893 /10.25.66/ 2007-08 dated May 27, 2008 on access to NDS-OM.

2. With a view to widening the secondary market in Government Securities to more number of participants, it has been decided to extend direct access to NDS-OM to licensed Urban Co-operative Banks (UCBs) and Systemically Important Non-Deposit taking Non-Banking Financial Companies (NBFC-ND-SIs) falling under the purview of Section 45-I (c) (ii) of the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) Act, 1934 (i.e. NBFC-ND-SIs which carry on as their business or part of their business the activity of acquisition of shares, stock, bonds, debentures or securities issued by a Government or local authority or other marketable securities of a like nature). The financial criteria and other requirements for direct access to NDS-OM for the above entities are furnished in the Annex.

 3. It may, however, be noted that extension of direct membership of NDS-OM to licensed UCBs  and NBFC-ND-SIs [under Section 45-I (c) (ii) of the RBI Act, 1934] is subject to the comfort  of the respective regulatory department of the Reserve Bank of India. Hence, all licensed UCBs and NBFC-ND-SIs which are eligible to obtain direct access to NDS-OM as per the criteria laid down in the Annex are advised to furnish a No-Objection Certificate from their respective regulatory departments while applying for NDS-OM membership.

Yours faithfully,
