New bank license guidelines: Who qualifies & who lucks out?

Uday Phadke of Mahindra & Mahindra and N Sivaraman of Larsen & Toubro talk about the impact it will have on their respective companies while Abizer Diwanji of KPMG gives his perspective on this development.


The much awaited draft rules from the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) that will govern the issue of new bank licences is out. Most of the rules like the minimum capital requirement of Rs 500 crore are along expected lines. But there were some shockers as well. No group of a company with more than 10% of revenues coming from broking or real estate will be eligible.
