Data Format for Furnishing of Credit Information to Credit Information Companies and other Regulatory Measures
Please refer to our circular DBOD.No.CID.BC.127/20.16.056/2013-14 dated June 27, 2014 inter alia setting out a Uniform Credit Reporting Format for the purpose of reporting credit information to the Credit Information Companies (CICs).
2. Annex I of the format has two parts, Consumer Bureau and Commercial Bureau. It has been decided to create a new status value viz; ˜Restructured due to Natural Calamity™ for the fields ˜Written Off and Settled Status in the Consumer Bureau and ˜Major reasons for restructuring™ in the Commercial Bureau. This modification is intended to enable banks/FIs to report to CICs restructured/rescheduled agricultural loans on account of any declared natural calamities. The ˜Guidelines for Relief Measures by Banks in Areas affected by Natural Calamities™ are contained in RBI™s circular FIDD.No.FSD.BC.52/05.10.001/2014-15 dated March 25, 2015. Such reporting would help banks to know if any earlier loans availed by the farmers were restructured due to natural calamities.
3. Banks/FIs/CICs should make necessary modification to their systems and commence reporting the above information w.e.f. September 30, 2015.
