Dear Sir,

Prudential Guidelines on Capital Adequacy and Market Discipline - New Capital Adequacy Framework (NCAF) – Change of name of Fitch Ratings to India Ratings and Research Private Limited (India Ratings)

Please refer to the Master Circular No. DBOD.No.BP.BC.16/21.06.001/2012-13 dated July 2, 2012 on 'Prudential Guidelines on Capital Adequacy and Market Discipline - New Capital Adequacy Framework (NCAF)'.

2. In terms of para 6 of the circular, Fitch India has been accredited for the purpose of risk weighting the banks' claims for capital adequacy purposes alongwith other credit rating agencies (CRAs). However, pursuant to the splitting of Indian operations of Fitch Ratings into domestic and international operations, the name of the wholly owned subsidiary to be responsible for assigning domestic ratings has been changed to 'India Ratings and Research Private Limited (India Ratings)'. The Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) has issued the necessary Certificate of Registration on May 20, 2012.

3. In view of above, it has been decided to revise para 6 of the circular under reference to include the new name of the CRA viz. 'India Ratings and Research Private Limited (India Ratings) in place of the earlier name of the CRA viz. 'Fitch India'. The revised rating symbols of the CRA after change in name are enclosed in the Annex.

4. All other provisions regarding external credit ratings of the master circular remain unchanged.

Yours faithfully,

(Deepak Singhal)
Chief General Manager-in-charge
