Election Commission allows RBI to announce new bank licences

01 April, 2014

The Election Commission on Tuesday allowed the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) to announce new bank licences even ahead of general elections set to conclude next month, according to a notice in the commission’s website.

The RBI had sought the commission’s approval to issue new bank licences to ensure the process would not clash with the code of conduct ahead of elections, which prevents decisions that may be deemed as political from being taken by government officials or regulators.

“The commission is of the view that Reserve Bank of India may take necessary action as deemed appropriate by the Bank,” election commission said regarding the central bank’s query.
