Referring to paragraph 4.5 “Transitional Arrangements,” paragraph 15.2.2 of Part D “Capital Conservation Buffer Framework, and paragraph 2.3 of Annex 16 of the Master Circular dated July 01, 2015 on Basel iii capital regulations, RBI has decided to defer the implementation of the last tranche of 0.625% of capital conservation buffer (CCB) from March 31, 2019 to March 31, 2020.
