Accordingly, reference to ‘SME Rating Agency of India Ltd.’ in paragraph 6 of the said circulars is revised to read as ‘SMERA Ratings Limited’. There is no change in the rating symbols of the CRA subsequent to change in name.

3. All other provisions regarding external credit ratings of the master circulars remain unchanged.
