MUMBAI: The Reserve Bank of India has eased norms to fund low-cost housing by permitting banks to extend loans against long-term infrastructure bonds.
The Reserve Bank of India however barred lenders from providing loans against long-term infrastructure bonds issued by other banks.
“Further, such loans should be subject to a ceiling, say, Rs 10 lakh per borrower, and tenure of loan should be within the maturity period of the bonds,” RBI said in a circular.
In July, the RBI had allowed long-term bonds raised by banks for infrastructure lending to be exempted from mandatory reserve requirements.
