RBI plans to restructure SLR to meet Basel-III norms


According to media reports, the Reserve Bank of India said that it may restructure the statutory liquidity ratio (SLR) to compute liquidity under the Basel-III regulatory norms. The move is aimed at preventing a recurrence of 2008 like financial crisis. CARE Research estimates domestic banks will be required to raise equity in the range of $40-$50bn over the next six years to meet BASEL-III guidelines. Banks ROE is projected to fall by 80-100bps for every 1% increase in core equity ratio, if other things remain constant. Given that most PSU banks core equity ratio is 6%-9%, CARE believes their ROE is expected to remain under pressure in the range of 100-200bps due to higher capital requirement. However, banks could increase or decrease their lending/ deposit rate by 15-25 bps, increase fee income or bring in cost efficiency to protect their ROE to fall from the current levels.
