The interview was done using an interview protocol prepared in consultation with my guide. Basel II is believed to can help protect the international financial system from the types of problems that might arise should a major bank or a series of banks collapse. the second tries to separate the operational risk from credit risk. .An Analytical report to study the impact of Basel II on Indian banking sector with special reference to SBI SUMMARY Basel II is basically the second of the Basel Accords. Basel II attempts to accomplish this by setting up ngorous risk and capital management requirements designed to ensure that a bank holds capital reserves appropriate to the risk the bank exposes itself to through its lending and investment practices. suggestions and conclusions have been confined to the banks in Allahabad. In the current thesis I have done an interview based research to get knowledge of the challenges faced by the banks during the process of implementing Basel II norms. the first one which tries to ensure that capital allocation is more risk sensitive. The major limitation of the project has been that the research. which are recommendations on banking laws and regulations issued by the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision. In practice. minimum capital requirements. the third attempts to align economic and regulatory capital more closely to reduce the scope for regulatory arbitrage. The Basel Committee on Banking Supervision has come up with three pillars namely. and quantifying both of them. supervisory review process and market discipline. The purpose of Basel II is to create an international standard that banking regulators can use when creating regulations about how much capital banks need to put aside to guard against the types of financial and operational risks banks face.

. With the advent of Basel II the amount available with the banks for lending has come down and tends to increase again when the advanced credit measurement approaches are introduced.An Analytical report to study the impact of Basel II on Indian banking sector with special reference to SBI There are different aspects of the study like change in the quantum and quality of data being collected for the purpose of rating which had an impact on the manpower requirements of the banks. Procyclicality did not seem to be a major issue with the bankers as they found the counter cyclical measures of the central bank very effective. The banks which had actually calculated their capital requirements based on internal capital appraisal methods had their capitals well above the 9% limit set by the central bank.

The Basel Capital Accord introduced a system for implementing a credit risk framework for determining the minimum amount of capital that a bank must hold as a cushion against risks. the greater the amount of capital the bank needs to hold to safeguard its solvency and overall economic stability. There is improvement in risk management system by Indian banks . Basel II insists on setting up rigorous risk and capital management requirements designed to ensure that a bank holds capital reserves appropriate to the risk The underlying assumption behind these rules is that the greater risk to which the bank is exposed. It will also oblige banks to enhance disclosures.An Analytical report to study the impact of Basel II on Indian banking sector with special reference to SBI INTRODUCTION In 1988 the Bank for International Settlements' Basel Committee on Banking Supervision. The new accord aligns the requirement for capital on hand with the actual risk involved. but in virtually all countries operating international banks. In 2004. without regard for the actual operational risk incurred by the bank. providing an incentive for banks to improve risk management. The purpose of Basel II is to create an international standard that banking regulators can use when creating regulations about how much capital banks need to put aside to guard against the types of financial and operational risk banks face. imposed the Basel Capital Accord. These international standards can help protect the international financial system from the types of problems that might arise should a major bank or a series of banks collapse. commonly known as the Basel Committee. Basel II is the second of the Basel Accords recommended on banking laws and regulations issued by the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision. Thus Indian banks require Basel II compliance for the following reasons:1) Basel II norms will facilitate introduction of new complex financial products in Indian Banking Sector 2) Indian banks require a more risk sensitive framework. the Basel II Accord was established. One problem with the original Basel Capital Accord was that it took a "one size fits all" approach. The Basel Capital Accord was adopted over time not only in member countries.

The concluding section outlines the additional improvements Indian banks would have to register in order to become globally competitive.An Analytical report to study the impact of Basel II on Indian banking sector with special reference to SBI 3) New rules will provide a range of options for estimating regulatory capital and will reduce gap between regulatory capital & economic capital. ahead of the opening up of the sector to foreign banks in 2010. operate in an environment characterized by progressive deregulation. development of credit assessment models. mainly in the areas of infrastructure requirements. RBI has enforced mandatory adoption of Basel II guidelines for Indian banks which are a set of prudential regulatory norms with an almost universal acceptance. and supervisory skills. benefit the larger and sophisticated bank like SBI and enhance the competitiveness of the bank in general. The study drills deep into the foundations of credit assessment using Internal Ratings method and data requirements for each determinant of credit risk before analyzing the progress of Indian banks on the implementation of these advanced approaches. This study explores the impact of Basel II on the Indian banking sector and how it would lead to shifts in lending structure. It then elaborates on the key challenges that SBI is facing after the implementation of Basel II guidelines. increased global integration and IT usage which have opened up a plethora of domestic and international opportunities for them. In light of this. .

But many are finding that implementation of Basel II is becoming a challenge. The main point that all Indian banks and particularly those in the public sector are missing is that Basel II is more about the risk governance structure of a bank and risk calculation is only an intermediate step towards building that structure. besides the compliance requirements? )0> Quantification of the end benefits from Basel compliance . Indian banks appear to be uncertain about the actual intent of Basel II guidelines.what does the bank stand to gain by ramping up and complying with Basel II? )0> What is the ideal phase-wise approach to implement Basel-II in the Indian context? )0> What are the practical problems that banks are certain to face or are currently facing in implementing Basel II? )0> Is Basel II a technology that can be bought off the shelf or does it involve business process re. Some of the key issues that require an attention of all sorts are:)0> Should banks be looking at the potential business benefits accruable from Basel-II implementation.engineering or is it merely a new way of calculating a bank's risk profile? .An Analytical report to study the impact of Basel II on Indian banking sector with special reference to SBI DISCUSSION OF PROBLEM Banks are under increasing pressure to comply with Basel II guidelines.

During the study the sub-objectives achieved will be as follows:- .

it becomes all the more necessary to provide the much required fiscal support to the banking industry. )0> Need for implementing Internal Ratings method for credit assessment INDUSTRY OVERVIEW The Indian banking sector has acquired a greater degree of resilience due to the financial reforms implemented in a gradual and sequential manner under the watchful eyes of Reserve Bank of India and Ministry of Finance.An Analytical report to study the impact of Basel II on Indian banking sector with special reference to SBI )0> Purpose of setting Capital Standards in banking Sector. Changes in these sectors are essential to boost comprehensive growth and revival of the economy. This was implemented by a participative process aimed at reduction in statutory pre-emption An assessment of the banking sector performance shows that banks in India have experienced strong balance sheet growth in the post-reform period in an environment of operational flexibility. Banks in India have always played a pivotal role in providing a thrust to the development of the country by assisting in the development of the priority sector in India which includes agriculture as well as in the industrial and infrastructural development. in the current challenging times of economic stagnation affecting these sectors. These significant gains have been achieved even while renewing the goals of social banking by maintaining the wide reach of the banking system and directed credit. Thus. The risk aversion which has crept into the domestic banking sector on account of the international banking crisis has created a situation of deep concern and threat for the real . reflected in significant improvement in capital adequacy and improved asset quality. is distinctly visible.

With economic slowdown being the major issue at present. . so that they can continue to playa vital role in intermediating between the demand and supply of funds. according to bankers. which has to be acted upon. the banking sector expects several positive measures in the near future. Credit targets of public sector banks had been revised upwards to reflect the needs of the economy. The reduction in PLR required cut in deposit rates as well. There is a negative impact on the banking sector due to lending at fixed ceiling rates to focus sectors. the bankers' main concern is to fund growth without facing any hurdles. Challenges facing the Indian Banking sector this year include: compliance with Basel II norms and competition from foreign banks. Margins have been hurt as the banking sys-tem has raised a large portion of its liabilities at high rates in the recent past. is infrastructure funding. which called for a recapitalization plan for banks to improve their soundness and their ability to withstand sudden shocks-like the ongoing global crisis that has devastated many of top-notch US banks.

An 'in-house' approach allowing banks to develop their own proprietary models to calculate capital charge for market risk by using the notion of Value-at -Risk (VaR). It defines a bank's capital as two types: core (or tier I) capital comprising equity capital and disclosed reserves.

Reserve Bank of India has accepted the accord and issued guidelines to ensure compliance with the norms from March 31. the 1988 Accord does not sufficiently recognize credit risk mitigation techniques. The focus in Basel 2 is the risk determination and quantification of credit risk. market risk and operational risk faced by banks. Switzerland. It is an improvement over Basel 1 which had certain deficiencies which have now been removed. The regulatory Capital requirement has been in conflict with increasingly sophisticated internal measures of economic Capital. Basel II stands on three pillars: . such as collateral and guarantees. but has also got provisions for supervisory review and market discipline.

To facilitate a move towards Basel II. in case they think that to be more appropriate.

It aims to give impetus to the use of internal rating system by the international banks. More and more banks may have to use internal model developed in house and their impact is uncertain. 2) Additional Capital Requirement: In order to comply with the capital adequacy norms we will see that the overall capital level of the banks will raise a glimpse of which was seen when the RBI raised risk weightages for mortgages and home loans in October 2004. Thus it would be reasonable to infer that the main focus of the new framework (Basel II) is on providing the right incentives to the banks to adopt data-based. especially at our largest. establishing and maintaining a minimum capital cushion sufficient to foster financial stability in periods of adversity and uncertainty. . which. Most of these models require minimum 5 years bank data which is a tedious and high cost process as most Indian banks do not have such a database. and grounding risk measurement and management in actual data and formal quantitative techniques. supporting a level playing field in an increasingly integrated global financial system.

Here there is a worrying aspect that some of the banks will not be able to put up the additional capital to comply with the new regulation and they may be isolated from the global banking system.

4) Low Degree of Corporate Rating Penetration: India has as few as three established rating agencies and the level of rating penetration is not very significant as. validation of the internal models approved by their head offices and home country supervisor adopted by the Indian branches of foreign banks. While Basel II gives some scope to extend the rating of issues to issuers. Along with that a large proportion of loans of banks are of poor quality. ratings are restricted to issues and not issuers.An Analytical report to study the impact of Basel II on Indian banking sector with special reference to SBI 3) Large Proportion ofNPA's: A large number of Indian banks have significant proportion of NP A's in their assets. foreign banks are statutorily required to maintain local capital and the following issues are required to be resolved. so far. Date history maintained and used by the bank should be distinct for the Indian branches compared to the global data used by the head office capital for operational risk should be maintained separately for the Indian branches in India . Encouraging ratings of issuers would be a challenge. this would only be an approximation and it would be necessary for the system to move to ratings of issuers. 5) Cross Border Issues for Foreign Banks: In India. There is a danger that a large number of banks will not be able to restructure and survive in the new environment. This may lead to forced mergers of many defunct banks with the existing ones and a loss of capital to the banking system as a whole.

as required by the market risk amendments. Financial regulators generally impose a capital adequacy norm on their banking and financial systems in order to provide for a buffer to absorb unforeseen losses due to risky investments. It was stipulated that foreign banks operating in India should achieve a CRAR of 8 per cent by March 1993 while Indian banks with branches abroad should achieve the 8 per cent norm by March 1995.9 norm for India's commercial banks is higher than the internationally 1998. and its implementation was spread over the next three years. These were later replaced with VaR-based capital charges. defined as the ratio of a bank's capital to its total risk-weighted assets.2000. the capital adequacy accepted level of 8 per cent. and banks were Thus. which became effective from March 2005. All other banks were to achieve a capital adequacy norm of 4 per cent by March 1993 and the 8 per cent norm by March 1996.An Analytical report to study the impact of Basel II on Indian banking sector with special reference to SBI CAPITAL ADEQUACY STANDARD IN INDIA Capital adequacy is an indicator of the financial health of the banking system. India adopted Basel I norms for scheduled commercial banks in April 1992.5 per cent risk weight on the entire portfolio for these risks between 2000 and 2002. The RBI responded to the market risk amendment of Basel I in 1996 by initially prescribing various surrogate capital charges such as investment fluctuation reserve of 5 per cent of the bank's portfolio and a 2. . the Reserve Bank of 9 per cent. India has gone a step ahead of Basel I in that the banks in India are required to maintain capital charges for market risk on their 'available for sale' portfolios as well as on their 'held for trading portfolios' from March 2006 while Basel I requires market risk charges for trading portfolios only. In its mid-term review of Monetary and Credit Policy in October India (RBI) raised the minimum regulatory CRAR requirement to advised to achieve this 9 per cent CRAR level by March 31. It is measured by the Capital to Risk-weighted Asset Ratio (CRAR). A well adhered to capital adequacy regime does play an important role in minimizing the cascading effects of banking and financial sector crises.

. This was possible due to classic reports and model given by Mr.S. transparent and efficient market to protect market integrity.An Analytical report to study the impact of Basel II on Indian banking sector with special reference to SBI FACTS BEHIND INDIAN BANKS RESISTANCE FROM GLOBAL FINANCIAL TURMOIL The global financial crisis didn't directly affected India as Indian financial system has sound fundamentals and the Indian Government has put in place. India has been spared the panic that followed the collapse of banking institutions such as Fortis in Europe. considered to be the first move towards risk-weighted capital adequacy norms. In 1996 BCBS amended the Basel I norms and in 1999 it initiated a complete revision of the Basel I framework. Global financial crisis. deregulation of interest rates and allowing foreign and domestic private banks to enter the system. Narasimham about the policy framework for the Government of India and the RBI to formulate the structure of India's banks and financial institutions was based on adequate capitalization. India adopted Basel I norms for commercial banks in 1992. While the liberalization was aimed at bringing about competition and efficiency into India's banking system. good provisioning norms and well-structured supervision. income recognition. the prudential regulation was aimed at strengthening the supervisory system. The Committee also recommended gradual liberalization of the banking sector by adopting measures such as reduction of statutory preemptions. The Narasimham Committee endorsed the internationally accepted norms for capital adequacy standards. developed by the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision (BCBS). and Merrill Lynch. These exposure limits. which is important in the process of liberalization. the market risk amendment of Basel I in 1996. The RBI enforced strict capital adequacy requirements and if any financial institution or bank exceeded the specified limits of exposure to stock markets. Along with these. systems and practices to promote a safe. the Committee also recommended adoption of prudential regulation relating to capital adequacy. to be known as Basel II. Government of India and RBI accepted these recommendations and proceeded to implement them. BCBS initiated Basel I norms in 1988. In pursuance of the Narasimham Committee recommendations. it would have to provide more capitaL This effectively insulated the banks and financial institutions from volatility of the bourses. Enforcement of the above instructions has paid good dividends. asset classifications. Lehman Brothers and Washington Mutual in the U. however. deserve to be reviewed from time to time.

Moreover 34 percent of our deposits were in government securities and cash with the RBI.An Analytical report to study the impact of Basel II on Indian banking sector with special reference to SBI This shows that there was no impact of the sub prime episode on the Indian banks & none of the Indian banks or the foreign banks. a few Indian banks had invested in the collateralized debt obligations (eDOs) / bonds which had a few underlying entities with sub-prime exposures. Even banks with international operations had less than 11 per cent of their total assets outside India. Finally Indian banks' global exposure was relatively small. The consumer loan to GDP ratio was just 10 percent. even though the overnight markets remained stable.

The first phase of the Accord took effect in 2007. therefore. There is also no question of credit crunch. Its aim is to safeguard the stability of the financial sector and one of its aspects is a comprehensive approach to risk. Thus. Banks can select from three methods of determining the risks and the associated capital requirements. it prescribes that this capital must be a better reflection of the actual credit risks represented by the companies to which the banks lend. An increase in the transparency of company accounting and of the information exchanged with banks has intended to result in greater objectivity with regard to the granting of new credit lines.An Analytical report to study the impact of Basel II on Indian banking sector with special reference to SBI IMPACT OF BASEL II ON INDIAN BANKS Indian banks are strongly regulated and supervised entities.

The Basel Committee has provided discretion to national supervisors to assign a lower risk weight to the exposures to the sovereign of incorporation. This is one of the reasons why credit will not necessarily become more expensive. Basel II is the new regulatory framework within which all banks will have to work. banks were required to have historical credit information on their lending customers. The Accord regulates the amount of capital that banks will have to set aside for their loans. The more favorable the company's risk profile. banks' loan portfolios have in fact grown as a proportion of their total assets. the better the credit risk rating and the more favorable the bank's terms and conditions will be. and the second phase was implemented in 2008. weak banks and those banks.

like for instance the underarm limits for NPAs has been increased from 100% to 150% so there is an impact on the amount available for lending. 4. Basel II has not affected the short term lending of the banks. which was one of the common problems faced by the banks during this phase. . business risk data are also available with the banks which help in the rating process. The banks have a firm belief that short term lending is a major weapon in the bank's armory for the better utilization of the bank's short term resources. though some bankers feel it's just the aggregating of the data available in various databases. 3. so data privacy is not a major problem they say. where a single brush approach was adopted without taking any specific risks into consideration. The bank is of the view that with the advent of Basel II there will be better capital adequacy since they are based on the risks involved unlike the ones in Basel I. 2. Changes have been and will be there in the quantum of data collected due to the new Basel II norms. But it has also been affecting their business in a way. The bankers say that industry risk data. This has had an impact on the manpower requirements and the time availability for the job. While bankers say that there have been privacy and security issues faced during the collection of data for the purpose of rating but they were not clear on how they had overcome those issues. but the bankers say that there will be an impact on the pricing of these short term lending of the banks. This data collection though is critical for the banks for the purpose of ratings. the way it was predicted to affect. most others say that they did not have any issues related to privacy since the customer is obliged to provide data for the processing of the application with regards to security issue they were not aware of any security issues faced so far.An Analytical report to study the impact of Basel II on Indian banking sector with special reference to SBI FINDINGS 1.

They were also of the view that their portfolios are well diversified to handle any such situation. their argument is that very few organizations which go for ratings. so the purpose of ratings which is actually to increase the value of the instrument is actually not working. The question related to pro-cyclicality seemed to be irrelevant as none of the bank felt that they have been affected or find any reason that they will be affected in the near future because of this. Some of them were of the view that in India there is no much demand for rating of corporate bonds and other instrument. Interest risk on banking book (MVE & Earning Perspective). get a good rating.

Mostly the bank had their ICAAPs in tune with the regulatory capital requirements set by the regulatory authorities and IBA. Some also argue that the situation is opposite where the rating agencies are behind the banks to rate their instruments. They had used Liquidity risk.

Earlier there were no separate departments for managing risks. Regarding the comparability of the capital standards post Basel II. They feel it's good to wait for the stabilization period to end rather than to proceed to advanced measurement approaches in haste. the ideas propounded by Basel II and because it advocates for the international best practices to be adopted by banks. others were of the view that there needs to be further study regarding this. 11. i.

/ A special forum within the framework of the Indian Bank's Association to facilitate the bankers to discuss live issues faced during the implementation of the Basel II. . Especially with the rise of the out sourcing culture in India too there could be security issues with regards to data security. it's not the crisis in itself that's the problem but the underlying factor that the countries and banks which implemented Basel II have faced the most of the heat of the current crisis. . . I feel that this could be an issue in the future considering the issues the developed countries are facing. . though ICAAP is totally the banks own calculations there needs to be some regulation with regards to this since there could be possibility that the banks could use future profits or other probabilities to set against capital requirements.An Analytical report to study the impact of Basel II on Indian banking sector with special reference to SBI RECOMMENDATIONS . . since it was one of the problems faced by the commercial banks ./ The methods and assumptions used to calculate the ICAAP needs to be made clear. so it's time the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision revisits the Basel II./ With regard to the treatment of Basel II implementation expenses incurred by the banks./ Though data privacy and data security issues have not posed a major problem with the bank in Allahabad./ The major problem facing the regulators is about the current crisis. This would make the transition easy especially for small banks implementing the norms in India. the reserve bank could support the banks with proper demarcation of the expenses other than those provided by the Indian Companies Act. hence it's worth the regulators give a look at this.

upgrading the data bases in IT systems ./ Finally./ Bank has to train all its employees so that everybody can understand about Basel Accord . among the consumers and with provided demand at the later stage the regulators could authorize more rating agencies . especially since the Indian banking sector is in a transformational process. . There needs to be a proper mechanism set in place to measure future IT systems loss. the Indian Banking Association needs to conduct regular workshops on corporate governance for the bank's board members . . Basel II is fundamentally about better risk management anchored in sound corporate governance. ./ The number of rating agencies available in India is low compared to the number of corporate accounts that need to be rated.An Analytical report to study the impact of Basel II on Indian banking sector with special reference to SBI ./ Though Basel II has reduced the amount available with the banks for lending it's for the good of the banking system as a whole so the strict capital standards . and the potential monetary losses it could cause. But first awareness has to be created about the uses and advantages of external ratings. ./ I feel that the banks would still face problems in capturing the IT systems losses under the current framework. The central bank needs to ensure strong corporate governance practices in the banking industry.
