  2. Permit PDs to invest in Tier II bonds issued by other PDs, banks and financial institutions to the extent of 10 per cent of the investing PD’s total capital funds.
  3. Permit PDs to borrow to the extent of 150% of NOF as at the end of March of the preceding financial year through Inter Corporate Deposits.

 

2. The above guidelines are effective from the date of the circular.

Yours faithfully
