UCBs allowed to provide online trading: RBI

India Infoline News Service | Mumbai |

The decision to allow the UCBs was taken after the RBI received requests from Indian Banks Association and Cooperative Federations.

The Reserve Bank of India has decided to allow only urban co-operative banks, with prior approval of RBI, to provide online trading facility to their demat account holders by entering into a tie-up with a broking entity subject to certain conditions.
However, considering the high risk involved in such services, it has been decided to allow only Scheduled Primary (Urban) Co-operative Banks, with prior approval of the Reserve Bank, to provide online trading facility to their demat account holders by entering into a tie-up with a broking entity, the RBI said in a notification on Tuesday.
Other conditions set by RBI for the UCBs to apply to the RBI are that the UCBs must also be registered with SEBI as Depository Participants, have implemented Core Banking Solutions (CBS) fully and should be offering internet banking services to their customers.
UCBs which fulfil the above mentioned conditions can submit their applications to the RBI with a copy of Board Resolution to the effect that they would not be offering tips/ recommendations to their customers for on-line trading and would also not be undertaking portfolio management services, RBI stated.
