RBI Imposes Penalty On 19 Commercial Banks For Non-Compliance Of Its Instructions On Derivatives

Recently, RBI has imposed penalties upon 19 commercial banks like Axis Bank Ltd, Barclays Bank PLC, HDFC Bank Ltd, ICICI Bank Ltd, Kotak Mahindra Bank Limited, Yes Bank Ltd, BNP Paribas, Citi Bank NA, Credit Agricole – CIB, Development Credit Bank Ltd, ING Vysya Bank Ltd, Royal Bank of Scotland, Standard Chartered Bank, State Bank of India, Bank of America NA, DBS Bank Ltd, Deutsche Bank AG, Hongkong and Shanghai Banking Corporation Ltd and JP Morgan Chase Bank NA.

RBI has been taking many pro active reforms for the Banking Sector of India, says Praveen Dalal, managing partner of New Delhi base ICT law firm Perry4Law and leading cyber law expert of India.. RBI is not only ensuring strict compliance with various Laws, Regulations and Norms but is also prescribing various Policies and Strategies for Effective and Secure Banking in India, informs Dalal. Ensuring Cyber Security for preventing Cyber Crimes has been recently directed by RBI that all Commercial Banks of India must follow, informs Dalal.

However, although the directions of cyber security are of great interest yet banks have failed to comply with the same. For instance, till now the directions of RBI to appoint CIOs and steering committee has not been followed by banks of India. Similarly, banks of India are also at fault for ignoring the cyber security requirements.
