Dear Sir/Madam,

Please refer to para 3.1 of our circular DBS.CO. FrMC.

2. On a review, it has been decided that the banks should also subject the title deeds and other documents in respect of all credit exposures of ` 5 crore and above to periodic legal audit and re-verification of title deeds with relevant authorities as part of regular audit exercise till the loan stands fully repaid.

3. The banks may furnish a review note to its Board/ Audit Committee of the Board at quarterly intervals on an ongoing basis giving therein the information in respect of such legal audits which should cover aspects, inter alia, like number of loan accounts due for legal audit for the quarter, how many accounts covered, list of deficiencies observed by the auditors, steps taken to rectify the deficiencies, number of accounts in which the rectification could not take place, course of action to safeguard the interest of bank in such cases, action taken on issues pending from earlier quarters.

 

Yours faithfully
