Discussion Paper on Securitisation of Stressed Assets released by RBI

Brief Overview:

A Discussion Paper on Securitisation of Stressed Assets (“Discussion Paper”), detailing relevant contours of the proposed framework on Securitisation of Stressed Assets has been released by RBI.

Technical Details:

The Discussion paper invites comments on nine relevant areas broadly covering:

1)    Asset universe;

2)    Asset eligibility;

3)    Minimum risk retention;

4)    Regulatory framework for special purpose entity and resolution manager;

5)    Access to finance for resolution manager;

6)    Capital treatment;

7)    Due diligence;

8)    Credit enhancement; and

9)    Valuation of securitization notes.

Currently the Securitization and Reconstruction of Financial Assets and Enforcement of Security Interest Act, 2002 provides for securitisation of Non-Performing Assets (“NPAs”) through an Asset Reconstruction Company. No corresponding mechanism for securitisation of NPAs through the special purpose entity route exists.

The Discussion Paper aims to provide for a framework that is structurally aligned with the framework for securitisation of standard assets.

*Comments on the Discussion Paper may be submitted by 28th February 2023 to The Chief General Manager, Credit Risk Group, Department of Regulation, Central Office, Reserve Bank of India.
