Title: Eligibility Norms to Start an NBFC Business

Eligibility Norms to Start a Business?
Non-Banking Financial Companies (NBFC) do not
fall in the legal definition of Banks but they
proffer banking facilities and financial
services. It is a well-known fact that Banks are
not able to cater to the financial needs of all
Indians, however hard they try therefore, more
and more companies are applying for NBFC
Registration.  The functioning of NBFCs is
regulated and monitored by the RBI in compliance
with the provisions mentioned in Chapter III B of
the RBI Act of 1934. The segments which are
largely served by the NBFCs are instruments of
the capital and money markets such as stocks,
bonds, along with hire-purchasing, deposits,
leasing, insurance business, investment funds,
and chit business and many more similar
Services NBFCs Can Offer The business activities
of NBFCs include loans advances, acquisition of
shares or stocks or bonds or debentures or
securities that are issued by govt or local
authority or other marketable securities of
similar nature, like leasing, hire-purchase,
insurance business, chit business, etc. Services
NBFCs Cannot Offer RBI clearly defines the
domains which cannot be touched by the NBFCs, and
thus agriculture activity, industrial activity,
purchase or sale of any goods (other than
securities) or providing any services, sale or
purchase or construction of the immovable
property, cannot be dealt with by NBFCs.
