Executive Summary

Para Banking which is banking at grass root level has a considerable scope in an agrarian
economy such as India where a majority of the population is rural, with no access to
proper banking facilities, and still today can be emotionally persuaded to invest.

These people can only be accessed by having a broad based organization where a huge
number of people can be deployed to directly approach the people and thereby fostering a
habit to save. Thus various schemes are launched considering the daily wage earner to the
business.

However this type of banking can only be popular where the country has a huge rural
population. This type of banking is not popular elsewhere in the world though carried out
in few other countries like Italy, Switzerland, and Germany

PARABANKING

Para Banking is a kind of banking wherein money is accepted for the purpose of saving
from an individual as in case of a normal banking function. The acceptance of money
under Para Banking is scheduled daily, monthly, quarterly, half yearly, yearly and even
for fixed period for more than 01 year.

Other than the above mentioned function of accepting the money for saving schemes,
Para banking also provides secured loan and pre-maturity facilities against the amount in
the saving scheme.

The only major differentiation between a normal banking and Para Banking is that, under
Para Banking one cannot option for current account facility and carry its day-to-day
transaction for accepting and withdrawal of funds. Also, a depositor can’t issue any
cheque’s against the amount in its Para banking saving schemes. Rather there is no
concept of cheque system in Para banking.

One connects Para Banking activities to a Fixed Deposits facility provided by bank.
Though the amount deposited under Para Banking Saving schemes is for a fixed period
and it fetches fix sum of interest on its deposits, the major differentiation between Para
banking Saving Schemes and Fixed Deposit Schemes of banks is that, an individual has
the option of depositing Daily under Para banking. Where as the only option under Fixed
Deposit Schemes for the depositor is to deposit weekly, forth nightly, monthly and so on.

Para - Banking targets all class of individuals for their depositor schemes. Their intension
was to encourage all class of individuals towards saving habits since the key success of
any economy is the saving structure in the country. Thus the Para Banking launched
various schemes considering the daily wage earner to the businessmen.

Para Banking Page 2


In Para-Banking majority of population are daily wage earners (i.e.) Small shopkeepers,
hawkers, Auto rickshaw and taxi drivers etc. who hardly understand the importance of
savings for their future periods. Not only that, their basic earning hardly supports them to
save any amount. And over and above to all such problems, they hardly have proper
infrastructure and facilities to deposit in banks since there are very few banks in rural
areas.

Security
The two important criteria for any depositor is the security of his life time savings and the
service provided to the depositors. In 1998, Reserve Bank of India investigated 42,000
NBFC’s and Sahara India Pariwar was the only firm which stood perfect in all norms. For
the same RBI has provided a “Clean Certificate” to Sahara India Pariwar’s Para Banking
division (i.e.) “Sahara India Financial Corporation Limited”.

RBI had laid down certain norms for all Residuary Non Banking companies under RNBC
(Reserve Bank) Directions 1987. Sahara India Pariwar follows all those norms in a
stringent control and regulation to gain the confidence of RBI and the ultimate depositors.

Service
Today, time is an important factor for all individuals. It’s difficult for every one to spare
time for their banking needs such as standing in long queues for depositing money etc.
Not only the time but also the norms and regulations of banking are difficult to under for
a laymen. Also it is difficult to find banks in many rural interiors and even if there are
banks in certain arrears they are not fully equipped with the latest infrastructure and
technology.

Employees used to visit house to house to make the laymen understand the importance of
saving and to provide them the banking facilities which they couldn’t avail due non
availability of banks.

History of Para Banking in India

The 1906 Swadeshi Revolution encouraged many cooperative bank to start up. With
this unqualified and selfish entrepreneurs started operating such banks with unclear
banking regulations of the government. This resulted into unsuccessful banking
scenario and difficulties in growth of this banking sector.

The major drawback was the bankruptcy of many banks (i.e.) 108 banks during 1913
-1917, 372 banks during 1922 – 36 and 620 banks during 1937 – 48. This resulted in
discomfort and insecurity amongst the general citizens and their confidence for
banking sector was challenged.

In 1929 Central Banking Enquiry Committee investigate the following reasons for the
failure for the current banking scenario:

1) Low level of Liquid Assets.

2) Unofficial business relationship between non- banking and banking officials.

3) Long term loans on short term deposits.

4) No proper guidelines from government or banking authorities.

5) Unlimited liabilities / irregular Credit policies / unqualified Directors.

After considering the above major drawbacks, government launched Banking companies’
regulation Act and Banking Branches Prohibition Act in the year 1946.

Para Banking Page 4


Changes in the Non- Banking Sector

Due to major failures and bankruptcies, general citizens, especially the rural population
lost confidence towards the banking sector. This resulted into huge transactions been
carried out through local money lenders and rich merchants who indulged fraudulence
with the uneducated villagers. Due to various reasons there was a growth in such
unorganized financial institutions and also Reserve Bank didn’t have any control over
such institutions. The greatest attraction of such institutions was the high level of interest
rates and with least amount of banking formalities. This attracted the general population.
But the main intention of such institutions was to collect huge sum of money and
ultimately prove to bankrupt.

Reserve Bank of India

Formation of Reserve Bank of India


Under the Banking Act 1934, Reserve Bank of India was formed in April 1935 and it
received a nationalized recognition in the year January 1949. Based on the Banking
Regulation Act 1949, RBI received many right such as Licensing, Administration of
Banking, Investments regulations, Liquidity Balance and observation and progressive
measures of banking sector in India. These measures resulted into reduction in the level
of failures and bankruptcies in India to a great extend.

Post Independence Scenario towards Nationalization of Banks


The second success after Formation of Reserve Bank of India was the nationalization of
various banks. This success could be divided into three major areas.

1) Nationalization of Imperial Bank of India and renamed as State Bank of India in


the on 01st July 1955. Along with this, seven more banks where recognized as
nationalized during the same period.

2) In 1969, 14 commercial banks where transformed into nationalized banks.

3) And in 1980 6 more commercial banks where brought under the nationalized
umbrella. Thus 90% of the banking sector was brought under the supervision and
control of Reserve Bank of India.

RBI norms For NBFC’s
The Directions: To invest and keep invested minimum 80% of deposit liabilities along
with interest accrued thereon in High quality securities as specified / approved by
Reserve Bank of India (Including Government Securities and / or Government
Guaranteed Bonds and Fixed / Certificate of Deposit of Scheduled Commercial Banks
and / or Government Financial Institutions.)

Safety of the Invested Scripts: To keep scripts in safe custody with a nationalized bank.
Not even a single paisa withdrawal from its investments for its expenses or other use.
Withdrawal can only be possible for discharge of liabilities to the depositors.

Remaining 20% of the Deposits:

Company can invest in other tangibles or assets at its discretion up to 20% of the deposit
liability provided the investment under these categories should not exceed 5 times of the
company’s net owned fund. The excessive amount beyond 5 times of net owned fund is
also to be invested in approved securities, as mentioned above.

100% Security for Depositors:

All these securities are to be valued at their current market price and the realizable value
of all these assets should at any point of time be 100% or more of the aggregate deposit
liabilities along with interest accrued thereon. Thus there is a full cover for all the
depositors.

Para Banking Page 7


Authentication:
The above pattern of investment is authenticated on quarterly basis by the statutory
auditors and the auditor’s certificate issued at the end of every March, June, September &
December, is submitted to the Reserve Bank of India within a specified time. Various
other returns as per statutory requirements are also furnished regularly.

The following are the major steps taken by Sahara to attend those norms:

1) Checks and control on all expenses. - All the expenses including the interest debts
where within 10% of yearly income.

2) Investments in equity were only 0.34%- Thus minimum fluctuation & risk factor.

3) Non- performing assets told within 01%.

4) Grant of Unsecured loans was nil – Thus no chances of bad debts.

Reserve Bank of India Act 1934


Considering in the better interest of the general depositors, it was necessary to control the
activities of such institutions that attract huge deposits from general public by means of
high rate of interest and ultimately misusing those fund for their personal means. Thus in
1963, Reserve Bank of India through its Chapter III- B brought I force few regulations
for the NBFC’s to follow up.

Para Banking Page 8


1) All rights regarding the articles / prospectus of NBFC’s would remain in the
hands of Reserve Bank of India.

2) The Reserve Bank of India holds rights to keep checks and controls on these
NBFC’s.

Reserve Bank Directions 1966 – 1977


Reserve Bank issues various regulations for Non Banking Financial Companies, Non
Banking Non Financial Companies and Miscellaneous Non Banking Companies. Thus
with regard to this Non Banking Financial Companies Directions 1966, Non Banking
Non Financial Companies Directions 1966, Non Banking Financial Companies (Reserve
Bank) Directions 1977 and Miscellaneous Non Banking Companies directions 1977 came
into force.

Companies (Acceptance of Deposits) Rules – 1975


In spite of Reserve Banks guidelines and regulations, it was noticed that many companies
where attracting the depositors through high rate of interest. It was also noticed that they
didn’t followed the RBI norms to publish a true picture of their affair for the reference of
general public before depositing the funds.

Reserve Bank issued various regulations and norms for Non Banking Non Financial
Companies and based on this it was difficult for such companies to procure loan from
banks at ease. This was the main reason for such companies to procure funds from the
general public by attracting them high rate of interest on their deposits.

Thus under Companies Act, Section 58 A and 58 B came into force on 01 st February
1975 and regulation regarding deposit structure and schemes for Non Banking Non
Financial Companies where enforced. The rights to enforce these rules came under the

Para Banking Page 9


Central Government’s (Department of Companies Affairs) and all the financial
companies and banking companies came under the guidelines of Reserve Bank of India.

The following are the main points relating to Companies Acceptance of Deposits Rules:

1) Non Banking Non Financial Companies can accept deposit of Minimum 06


months and for maximum 36 months only.

2) The interest on such depositors can be maximum 12.50% p.a.

3) The Company can utilize maximum 25 % of the Net Owned Fund provided they
keep aside 15% of the maturity amount as Liquidity.

Price Chit and Money Circulation Scheme (Banking) Act 1978


During those days there where few companies, namely, companies involved in Chits /
Benefits / Savings Schemes who attracted depositors with high rate of interest and it was
difficult for any one to keep them under control. Based on the investigation and
considering the general security of the mass population the price chits and money
circulation scheme (banking ) act 1978 was launched in 1978 through which price chit
and money circulation scheme was withdrawn. After the launch of this act all those
companies who earlier operated various schemes had to withdraw on a pre specified date.

RBI drafts new act to regulate finance firms

Mumbai, Aug 22: The Reserve Bank of India has drafted a new law--Parabanking
Regulation Act--to regulate non-banking finance companies (NBFCs). The new Act will
replace the relevant regulatory provisions in the RBI Act and form part of the central
bank's new supervisory regime for mezzanine financing. The Act will work in

Para Banking Page 10


conjunction with the laws that individual states are enacting to protect the interests of
depositors in finance companies.

The draft law proposes to take away the Company Law Board's (CLB's) powers to pass
orders on the settlement of dues by defaulting finance companies. Instead, it is proposed
to set up an independent body on the lines of the existing banking ombudsman scheme
that is currently in place in various states--Depositors' Grievance Redressal Bodies--to
pass orders for recovering depositors' dues.
However, unlike the banking ombudsman scheme, the new Act will have the legal status
of a civil court. It will be set up in various cities and the officers will be appointed by
theRBI. The central bank will also provide the infrastructure for these bodies to carry out
their functions.

The Parabanking Regulation Act will ease the statutory liquidity ratio (SLR)
requirements of NBFCs as it intends to allow NBFCs to put surplus cash (which is not
invested anywhere) held by them under the SLR bracket. At present, NBFCs are required
to maintain 15 per cent SLR which includes only investments in approved securities. By
including the surplus cash within the SLR stipulation, the RBI will in effect allow finance
companies to invest less in approved securities.

The new law will have provisions for setting up a special court--on the lines of the special
court set to look into the securities scam--to enable the speedy recovery of dues from the
promoters of the defaulting NBFCs. The RBI will also have powers to nominate officers
with special winding-up powers for speedy disposal of recovery cases.
There will also be a special provision to enable depositors to recover their dues, a
sourcefamiliar with the drafting of the new supervisory regime told The Financial
Express. Under this, once the RBI makes a case for winding up an NBFC, the court will
have to pass a directive for winding it up and the RBI will appoint one of its own officers
as a liquidator for taking over its assets and enabling depositors to recover their dues.

Para Banking Page 11


The new regulation will also bar NBFCs from carrying out any business apart from non-
banking finance activities. This essentially means that an NBFC cannot float a subsidiary
which will be into stocklending or sharebroking activities. "NBFCs will be barred from

setting up subsidiaries as such companies are generally seen as fronts for siphoning off
depositors' money," the source said. However, it has been clarified that while a hire
purchase or equipment leasing company cannot carry on sharebroking activites through a
subsidiary, it can carry out investment activities with its surplus cash.
The new regime also seeks to raise the entry barriers for NBFCs.Currently, existing
finance companies need to have a net worth of Rs 25 lakh to carry on business. The
threshold is likely to be raised to Rs 10 crore for new entrants.

Insight
Tightening up
The proposed new regime for NBFCs will tighten up and complement the amendments
made to the RBI Act earlier to register NBFCs and give them a new regulatory
framework. The steps include doing away with NBFC arms and imposing higher net
worth requirements. The special courts for NBFCs should help speed up the liquidation
process and make sure that the NBFC buck stops with the RBI. However, there will be
appeals from the civil to the high courts. Also, with the minimum owned funds currently
being Rs 25 lakh, the steep rise in net worth to Rs 10 crore raises the question of what
will happen to existing players unable to meet the criterion.

Sahara India Pariwar – Mother Division

India's No. 1 Public Deposit Mobilization company in the Private Sector Mobilizing
Highest yearly deposit level in the country

 1707 Establishments
 Over 5.1 crore Esteemed Depositors
 Serving 1 out of 20 Indians

The Parabanking Division has been accorded the status of Mother Division amongst all
divisions of Sahara India Pariwar as the Pariwar came into existence through its Non-
Banking deposit mobilization business.

From their inception in the year 1978 to the year 1987 they made steady progress, when
the Sahara India Financial Corporation Limited was incorporated. The same year, R.B.I.
laid down its R.N.B.C. guidelines governing Non-Banking Finance Companies (NBFCs)
in order to ensure total security to the depositors. While most finance companies went to
court against the said guidelines, they were the first to unconditionally, adopt the same
and since then, have been witness to a phenomenal growth in their Parabanking business.

Today, Sahara India Financial Corporation Ltd. is the First Residuary Non-
Banking Company of the country that has been granted certificate of registration by
RBI and a clean chit for complying with all the guidelines applicable to the RNBCs

The success of Sahara India Pariwar comprises of its diversification in various sectors,
namely the Housing, Para Banking, Consumer Goods, Aviation, Media & T.V. But the
back bone and crown of Sahara India Pariwar is its Para Banking division. Thus one can
say success behind the entire Pariwar is credited to its Mother division -Para Banking.

Para Banking Page 14


Successful beginning of Sahara India Pariwar’s -Para Banking
Shri Subrata Roy- Saharasri started his business career with Para Banking in the year
1978. During those days depositors had a negative impression and approach toward
NBFC’s. This was because of the fraudulent activities conducted by various existing
NBFC’s and Chit Fund companies. But under the stringent rules and regulations of Mr.
Subrata Roy and the continuous affords toward maintaining the goodwill in front of the
depositors had proven the success of the entire Pariwar.

Beginning
The organization of this magnitude started with a small beginning.

They started off in the year


1978 with a capital of just
Rs. 2000/- from Gorakhpur,
Uttar Pradesh. Initially,
they had only 3 workers
and one single
establishment comprising a
small room having 2 chairs
and a table with just 42
depositors in all.

Since then, they have gained rapid strides and have today, achieved
the position of India's No.1 Public Deposit Mobilization Company in the
private sector. At present, they have the highest yearly deposit level in
the country, serving over 5.1 crore depositors (i.e. 1 out of 20
Indians) with their activities spread across 1707 establishments all
over the country.

Para Banking Page 15


With an overall asset base of over Rs. 32,000 crore and an all India
presence of over 6.9 lac dedicated and committed workers, Sahara
India Pariwar has become synonymous with excellence and distinction
in all aspects of its services and quality and enjoys the enviable status
of being one of the front runners in Indian entrepreneurship, today

Service at Your Doorstep

What gives Sahara Parabanking an edge over most of the banks is the service at the
doorstep of the depositors where Sahara's devoted workers come over and offer their
personalized services. Thus, valuable time is saved which allows
one to carry out his / her own
business as usual.
In the Indian savings and
investment scenario, people
whose livelihood depend on
their day-to-day earnings,
like - shopkeepers, hawkers,
roadside vendors, cart
pullers, taxi or auto drivers
are not in position to invest
huge amount of deposits, for
the future, which is why they
need to save daily. Over a
period of time these daily
savings accumulate into
sizeable amounts which when
invested judiciously can
bring returns in future.

Para Banking Page 16


Sahara India Pariwar helps such people to save for their future. Its workers go right upto
their doorstep and exhibit the same level of enthusiasm and respect in collecting as much
as a rupee for a deposit as they would in collecting a huge sum of money.

String and Strict Fundamentals

Stringent Expense Control – Cost of fund (Including Interest Cost) within 11.75% p.a.

(Almost) No Speculation Investments – Total investments in Equity (Shares): 8.83 crores


(0.13%) only.

High Class Quality Investment – Non performing Assets (N.P.A. The provisions have

Sahara’s Operative Standards

Control of activities is the key factor for any company to attain its goal. For example if
the direction and flow of water is not controlled could lead to flood but construction of a
dam can lead to a controlled flow and even useful to generate electricity. Similarly a
“Centralized Controlling System” can lead to successful business standards for any
organization.

Para Banking Page 17


The Centralized Controlling System of Sahara India Pariwar’s has been very successful
and effective in monitoring its activities at the root level. Today Sahara India Pariwar
controls its activities of 1707 branches from its Head Office. A branch is an area wherein
the depositor is in direct contact to the Para Banking officials. The Branch office is
controlled by Sector office, sector office has to report to the Regional / Zonal office,

regional / Zonal office is managed and controlled by Territory office which in turn is
looked up by Head Office.

All payments are carried by Centralized Debit Voucher through it Computerized


Advances. Thus it helps for proper fund management. If any entry or checking highlights
a voucher which stands different from the Centralized Debit Voucher, then a detailed
checking is carried to rectify the error.

Control and Checks

 Each and every payment throughout the country is a computer processed advice,
always from Command
Office.

 Number of Computers
– More then 1800.

 Number of
Computerised Points in
the country – more than
1400.

 Within One Year –


Paper Less Branches with 100% Absolutely Foolproof Controls without any need
for Human Reconciliation

Para Banking Page 18


OMR(Optical Mark Up Recognition) System

In its efforts to provide prompt, errorless and totally foolproof services to their esteemed
depositors, the Parabanking Division plans to introduce the Optical Mark Recognisiton
technology.

The basic idea behind introducing the OMR system is to network and link all their
branches, sectors, regions, zones using the latest in computer technology with the
command office at Lucknow and facilitate the centralized control of the entire sequence
of their parabanking activities at their headquarters.

The system would offer a wide range of benefits like :

 No data entry will be required at the branch. The entire data will be based on the
OMR – form.

 In this system they achieve 100% absolutely foolproof controlling with


considerable reduction in establishment cost. So overall reduction cost of funds in
terms of percentage of interest is more than 1% and in future years it will touch
almost 2%.

 All the receipts and payments will be made by a singe person, eliminating the
need for extra manpower at the branches.

Para Banking Page 19


 Due to in-built security checks, any unauthorized modification in data would not
be possible.

 Total receipts and payments for a day can be known at Command Office after 24
hours, which shall help in better controlling and fund management.

Infrastructure at Sahara India Pariwar’s- Para banking Division

On-Line Connectivity and OMR System


The V-SAT technology at all the branches and office supports for On-Line Connectivity
24 hours a day. Along with the above connectivity, the OMR – Optical Mark Recognition
system operates at all the offices simultaneously to provide the following facilities:

1) Fast scrutiny and paperless office, wherein there is no need for human scrutiny
and checks.

2) Since all the data is available through O.M.R., there is no need for data entry.

3) While opening the account with the Para Banking a Master Card is prepared to
carry all the transactions at a time and even receipt is made with through single
entry.

4) Since a single entry is carried, all the errors which used to be occurred at various
levels during manual system are reduced.

5) An internal Security check enables the system to find and rectify any
differentiation in amounts and figures wrongly posted.

6) All the business transaction and Accounts could be verified with in 24 hours from
any offices thus leading to professionalized Fund Management.
