RBI Imposes Business Restrictions

On Wednesday, the RBI directed EARCL to halt the financial assets, including security receipts (SRs) and to stop reorganising the existing SRs into into senior and subordinate tranches. The RBI decision was in response to the EARCL's regulatory violation by not presenting the RBI's supervisory directives to its board such as not following rules for settling loans, and sharing of client related information without authorisation.

The RBI is based on the finfings that the Edelweiss Group used complex transactions to revive troubled loans, bypassing regulations and these transactions involved EARCL and associated investment funds. The central bank also noted improper valuation practices at both ECL and EARCL.
