    RBI Issues Final Guidelines on NSFR Standard Under Basel III

    May 17, 2018

    RBI published the final guidelines on the net stable funding ratio (NSFR), as part of its Basel III Framework on Liquidity Standards. The NSFR guidelines are expected to ensure reduction in funding risk over a longer time horizon by requiring banks to fund their activities with sufficiently stable sources of funding to mitigate the risk of future funding stress. NSFR would be binding on banks with effect from a date that will be communicated in due course.

    NSFR should be equal to at least 100% on an ongoing basis. However, NSFR would be supplemented by supervisory assessment of the stable funding and liquidity risk profile of a bank. On the basis of such assessment, RBI may require an individual bank to adopt more stringent standards to reflect its funding risk profile and its compliance with the Sound Principles (issued via a circular on Liquidity Risk Management by Banks in November 07, 2012). NSFR would be applicable for Indian banks at the solo as well as the consolidated level. For foreign banks operating as branches in India, the framework would be applicable on a stand-alone basis (that is, for Indian operations only). NSFR as at the end of each quarter (starting date will be announced in due course) should be reported to RBI (Department of Banking Supervision, CO) in the prescribed format (BLR 7) within 15 days from the end of the quarter.

    The guidelines are based on the final rules text on NSFR, which BCBS published in October 2014, and take into account the Indian conditions. The objective of NSFR is to ensure that banks maintain a stable funding profile in relation to the composition of their assets and off-balance sheet activities. The NSFR limits over reliance on short-term wholesale funding, encourages better assessment of funding risk across all on- and off-balance sheet items, and promotes funding stability.
