Master Circular on Appointment & Delisting of Brokers and
Payment of Brokerage on Relief/Savings Bonds


1. Procedure for enrollment/registration of brokers

Agency banks may follow a simple procedure for enrollment/registration of brokers. The broker seeking enrollment/registration may submit the request for registration on their business letterhead together with business data to the agency banks. The agency banks should allot a code number to the broker which should be quoted by the broker on all applications tendered at the Receiving offices for claiming brokerage.

(Ref. No CO.DT./13.01.201/692/2000-01 dated August 9, 2000)

2. Appointment of sub-agents by Agency banks

It has come to our notice that some banks designated/authorized by Reserve Bank of India (RBI) have engaged the services of other banks as brokers/agents for receiving applications and the latter are using the name of RBI in their publicity material and billboards stating that RBI has appointed them as brokers for Relief/Savings bonds business. We advise that in cases where authorised banks engage the services of other banks/institutions as a broker or agent, the agency banks who have appointed them are solely responsible for their activities as an agent/broker. RBI's name should not be used by such banks.

(Ref. CO.DT./13.01.251/ 5341/2001-02 dated January 4, 2002)

3. Delisting of brokers

The names of the dormant brokers, who have been dormant for say 2 years, may be delisted after giving a due notice if, no fresh business is forthcoming from these brokers.

(Ref. CO.DT./13.01.201/4890/1999-00 dated March 6, 2000)


1. Rates of brokerage

a. Brokerage at the rate of ` 1.00 (Rupee One only) per `100/- will be paid to brokers registered/enrolled with agency banks on applications tendered for investment in the bonds in the form of Bond Ledger Account (BLA) at designated branches on behalf of their clients and bearing their stamp.

[Ref. CO.DT./13.01.201/432/2000-01 dated July 25, 2000 and

(Ref. CO.DT./13.01.298/H-2411/2003-04 dated October 29, 2003)

2. No TDS on payment of brokerage

No tax is required to be deducted at source by the agency banks while making payment of brokerage in respect of the Relief/Savings bonds business canvassed by brokers in terms of Section 194 (H) of the Income Tax Act, 1961.

(Ref. CO.DT./201/5900/2000-01 dated May 28, 2001 and

3. Brokerage claims

a. Agency banks are to settle the brokerage claims expeditiously, and in any case, not later than 30 days from the date of subscription.

b. Agency banks are advised to first settle the brokerage claims and thereafter seek reimbursement from RBI.

(Ref. CO.DT./13.01.201/4668/2000-01 dated March 8, 2001)

c. As a measure towards improvement in customer service, agency banks may arrange to pay the brokerage to the agents, on a monthly basis by credit to their accounts through ECS after obtaining requisite mandate from them.
