This may be in addition to the shifting permitted at the beginning of the accounting year, i.e., April 2015. Such transfer to AFS/HFT category would be excluded from the 5 per cent cap prescribed for value of sales and transfers of securities to/from HTM category under paragraph 2.3 (ii) of the Master Circular on Prudential Norms for Classification, Valuation and Operation of Investment Portfolio by Banks.
