The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) said standalone primary dealers will not be allowed to raise capital through short-term bonds from July 1, and should instead issue long-tenure debt to strengthen their capital base and align with Basel III norms for banks.
The RBI had earlier allowed the primary dealers (PDs) to raise short-term capital to meet their market risk since they were more exposed to such risks as underwriters of government bond auction.
"However, PDs which are already having Tier-III capital may continue to recognise it as an eligible capital till the maturity of such subordinated debts," the RBI said on Wednesday.
