December, 31st 2012

RBI/2012-13/351
DNBS.PD.CC.No. 317/03.10.001/2012-13

December 28, 2012

All NBFCs

Dear Sir/Madam,

Definition of 'Infrastructure Loan' of NBFCs - Harmonisation

Please refer to RBI’s circular DBOD.No.BP.BC.58/ 08.12.014/2012-13 dated November 20, 2012 on ‘Second Quarter Review of Monetary Policy 2012-13 – Definition of Infrastructure Lending' in terms of which the definition of ‘infrastructure lending for the purpose of financing of infrastructure by the banks and Financial Institutions’ has been harmonized with that of the Master List of Infrastructure sub-sectors’ notified by the Government of India on March 27, 2012. It has been decided to harmonise the definition of infrastructure lending for NBFCs with that of banks.

2. Accordingly, the extant definition of infrastructure loan given in the NBFC Prudential Norms Directions, 2007 stands amended with immediate effect. The revised definition of ‘infrastructure loan’ is given in the Annex to this circular. Also please find enclosedthe amending notification of date for meticulous compliance.

3. The exposure of NBFCs to projects under sub-sectors which were included under our previous definition of infrastructure, but not included under the revised definition, will continue to get the benefits under ‘infrastructure lending’ for such exposures till the completion of the projects. However, any fresh lending to those sub-sectors from the date of this circular will not qualify as ‘infrastructure lending’.

Yours faithfully,

(C.R.Samyuktha) 
Chief General Manager
