Consolidated list of returns prescribed by RBI for banks/NBFCs/OFIs

The Reserve Bank’s internal Return Governance Group (RGG) has been monitoring the governance structure of regular returns prescribed for reporting entities, with the objective to rationalise and standardise reporting to RBI.

As a part of the exercise on harmonisation of banking statistics, a technical guidance note on eXtensible Business Reporting Language (XBRL) returns was issued on March 30, 2017 for ensuring quality and uniformity of the inputs received through the RBI returns, as part of statutory, regulatory, supervisory, policy and research requirements and ensure uniform application of the aggregation rules for compiling reporting-line items by different banks. This will be updated periodically by providing harmonised definitions of additional data-elements.

The consolidated list of 248 returns for commercial banks, co-operative banks, small finance banks, payment banks, non-banking finance companies, primary dealers and other financial institutions is placed on the Reserve Bank’s website. The list does not include certain returns which seek confidential supervisory information in specific cases, which are communicated directly to regulated entities. For the convenience of reporting entities, the related circulars and formats are also linked as ready reference for ensuring data quality. This list would be updated regularly to facilitate ease of reporting.
