New Delhi: Be it private or government, the Central Reserve Bank has an eye on all types of banks. The Reserve Bank has also been taking strict action on these. However, despite this, banks are violating the rules. These include banks with large customer numbers in the country. In this episode, the Reserve Bank has imposed a total penalty of Rs 6 crore on Punjab National Bank (PNB) and Bank of India (BoI).
How much penalty on which bank: Bank of India has been fined Rs 4 crore and Punjab National Bank has been fined Rs 2 crore. According to RBI, an examination of the risk assessment report revealed that the norms were not followed. Show cause notices were sent to public sector banks in both cases. He was asked why a penalty should not be imposed on him for not following the instructions. RBI says that both the banks have been fined for lack of regulatory compliance.
HDFC was fined: Last week RBI imposed a fine of Rs 10 crore on HDFC Bank. The central bank had pointed out that this action is based on deficiencies in regulatory compliance and is not related to the validity of any transaction or agreement entered into by the bank with its customers.
