Imposition of Minimum Capital Adequacy Measure of 9% for RRBs
The risk weighted assets ratio system as the basis of assessment of Capital Adequacy which takes into account the element of risk in the various types of assets in the Balance Sheet as well as off Balance-sheet exposures was made applicable to banks in India with a view to strengthening their capital base.
3. Consequent to the consolidation of RRBs by amalgamation and recapitalization of weak RRBs, it has been decided to prescribe a minimum CRAR for RRBs. All RRBs are, therefore, advised to achieve and maintain a minimum CRAR of 9% on an ongoing basis with effect from March 31, 2014.
