 11. Qualitative Disclosure around LCR
 The Bank measures and monitors the LCR in line with the Reserve Bank of
 India''s circular dated June 9, 2014 on Basel III Framework on
 Liquidity Standards - Liquidity Coverage Ratio (LCR), Liquidity Risk
 Monitoring Tools and LCR Disclosure Standards. The LCR guidelines aim
 to ensure that a bank maintains an adequate level of unencumbered High
 Quality Liquid Assets (HQLAs) that can be converted into cash to meet
 its liquidity needs for a 30 calendar day time horizon under a
 significantly severe liquidity stress scenario. At a minimum, the stock
 of liquid assets should enable the bank to survive until day 30 of the
 stress scenario, by which time it is assumed that appropriate
 corrective actions can be taken. Banks are required to maintain High
 Quality Liquid Assets of a minimum of 100% of its Net Cash Outflows by
 January 1, 2019. However, with a view to providing transition time, the
 guidelines mandate a minimum requirement of 70% w.e.f. January 1, 2016
 and a step up of 10% every year to reach the minimum requirement of
 100% by January 1, 2019. The adequacy in the LCR maintenance is an
 outcome of a conscious strategy of the Bank towards complying with LCR
 mandate ahead of the stipulated time lines.  The monthly average LCR of
 the bank for the quarter March 2016 is 143.94%.
 The Bank has been maintaining HQLA primarily in the form of SLR
 investments over and above mandatory requirement, regulatory
 dispensation allowed upto 2% of NDTL in the form of borrowing limit
 available through Marginal Standing Facility (MSF) and 5% of NDTL as
 Facility to Avail Liquidity for Liquidity Coverage Ratio (FALLCR). From
 February 2016 onwards, RBI has allowed Banks to reckon an additional 3%
 of NDTL as FALLCR. Level 1 asset contributes to 97.99% of the total
 high quality liquid assets of the bank of which the major contribution
 is from the Government securities.
 The principal components of the estimated cash out flows which could
 arise in next 30 days are retail deposits (59.36%) and unsecured
 wholesale funding (27.75%). The bank intends to fund the short term
 cash outflows from extremely liquid Government securities and funding
 for estimated cash outflows considered in LCR computation substantially
 flows from this source.
 Bank has only forward contract as derivative exposure. The bank is
 managing its liquidity from the centralized fund management cell
 attached to Treasury Department, Mumbai.
