The non-banking Financial Companies play a very important role in the Indian Financial System. The aggregate balance sheet size of the NBFC sector was at Rs. 13.8 trillion in September 2017. There were 172 deposit accepting non-banking financial companies (NBFCs-D) and 220 systemically important non-deposit accepting NBFCs (NBFCs-NDSI). All NBFCs-D and NBFCs-ND-SI are subjected to prudential regulations such as capital adequacy requirements and provisioning norms along with reporting requirements.
The program, designed for select NBFCs, will focus on the enterprise-wide risk management framework to identify, assess, monitor and control risks in order to create value for the enterprise. An effective internal control and compliance function and building a compliance culture can contribute towards sound risk governance by strengthening the “Three Lines of Defence”. In February 2018, the RBI announced the Ombudsman Scheme for customers of Non-Banking Financial Companies (NBFCs) to ensure an expeditious and cost-free apex level mechanism for resolution of customer complaints. The regulatory and supervisory expectations from NBFCs and the implementation of the Ombudsman Scheme will also be covered in the Program.
The Program will focus on practical implementation issues. Expert speakers will cover the following topics in detail:
• Enterprise-wide risk management
• Strengthening Internal Control and Compliance
• RBI’s Regulatory and Supervisory Expectations
• An Industry View of the Key Issues affecting NBFCs
• The Ombudsman Scheme
• NBFCs: Financial Stability Issues – A View from the RBI
