At a meeting of the sub committee of the FSDC held at the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) on Wednesday and attended by top officials from all sector regulators as well as the government, it was decided to create a forum for coordination among related agencies.

"The sub committee resolved to set up a forum for inter agency coordination and exchange of information about collective investment schemes and discussed the need for a nationwide awareness campaign in this respect," RBI said in a release issued late evening today.

The committee also discussed the potential impact on India of the extra-territorial aspects of regulations by European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) and US Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) and proposed to chalk out a unified strategy for the same.

Recently, Indian bond market reacted sharply interpreting US Federal Reserve statements.

Besides, the issue of banks selling insurance products for more than one insurance company under the bancassurance model also came up for the discussion. The committee tried to focus more on financial inclusion, financial literacy and the inter regulatory coordination.
