Dear Sir,

White Label ATMs (WLAs) in India – Guidelines

Please refer to the guidelines issued vide DPSS.CO.PD. No.2298/02.10.002/2011-2012 dated June 20, 2012 on the captioned subject.

2. We have been receiving queries from non bank entities, whether infusion of capital to satisfy the criteria of net worth of Rs 100 crore would be considered if the capital is infused after the entities™ balance sheet have been audited while seeking authorisation from RBI under the PSS Act, for setting up White Label ATMs.

3. It is clarified that such non-bank entities that wish to infuse capital can do so provided they submit a certificate to this effect from a Chartered Accountant that additional capital has been infused to satisfy the criterion of net-worth of Rs. 100 crore. The certificate to this effect may be submitted from its existing Chartered Accountant who has audited the entity™s last balance sheet or a Chartered Accountant who has conducted a limited review of the accounts of the last quarter / half-year along with the application seeking authorisation as per the stipulated guidelines.

Yours faithfully,

(Vijay Chugh)
Chief General Manager
