In consonance with the calibrated reduction in the SLR and in order to enable banks’ greater participation in financial markets, the above ceiling for SLR holdings in HTM category is being brought down to 24 per cent of NDTL with effect from the fortnight beginning August 9, 2014. Accordingly, it is advised that with effect from August 9, 2014, banks are permitted to exceed the limit of 25 per cent of total investments under HTM category provided the excess comprises only SLR securities, and the total SLR securities held in the HTM category is not more than 24.00 per cent of their NDTL as on the last Friday of the second preceding fortnight.

In order to enable banks to shift their excess SLR securities from the HTM category to AFS/HFT category in compliance with the instructions indicated in paragraph 3 above, it has been decided to allow one more such shifting by August 9, 2014. Such one-time 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 para 2.3 (ii) of the Master Circular on Prudential Norms for Classification, Valuation and Operation of Investment Portfolio by Banks.
