RBI lifts restrictions
Equitas Holdings on Monday said the RBI has lifted the restrictions imposed on its small finance bank subsidiary in September last year, reports PTI. The Reserve Bank lifted the restrictions on Equitas Small Finance Bank (ESFB) subsequent to the listing of its equity shares, Equitas Holdings said in a BSE filing.
RBI had restricted ESFB from opening new branches and froze the remuneration of MD & CEO at the then existing level. “In this connection, we accede to your request for lifting the regulatory restrictions imposed on Equitas Small Finance Bank vide our letter dated September 6, 2019,” the RBI letter attached with the filing said.
The shares of ESFB were listed on the NSE and BSE with effect from November 2, 2020. The listing of the banking subsidiary has been in compliance with requirements of guidelines of licensing of small finance bank by RBI, Equitas Holdings said in a filing last week.
