Necessary infrastructure which includes trade repository, documentation, publication of CDS curve for valuation, standardisation of contracts, etc. required for the launch of the product is being put in place. Further, market participants have asked for certain clarifications regarding documentation, operational aspects, and the arrangement for the necessary institutional framework.

2.         In view of the above, the matter has been reviewed and it has been decided to operationalise CDS guidelines issued in May 2011 by the end of November 2011. The exact date will be notified shortly.

Yours faithfully,
