India central bank allows non-bank Islamic finance firm











LEGAL CHALLENGE Last year, the RBI directed Kochi-based Alternative Investments and Credits Ltd (AICL) to stop its non-interest NBFC business almost a decade after the firm was launched. This prompted an ongoing legal challenge by AICL. "The grant of an NBFC licence should have an impact on the AICL proceedings and there are good chances that the matter may get settled soon," said Suprio Bose, Mumbai-based lawyer at Juris Corp, a law firm which previously represented AICL. "The event reflects a significant and welcome change in RBI's attitude towards sharia-based NBFCs and sets a precedent for others to follow suit." However, many analysts think that unless and until full-fledged Islamic banks are permitted in India, an Islamic finance sector will find it hard to develop. "I don't think there is going to be a rush for NBFC applications.

Trent Hamm The Simple Dollar is a blog for those of us who need both cents and sense: people fighting debt and bad spending habits while building a financially secure future and still affording a latte or two. Our busy lives are crazy enough without having to compare five hundred mutual funds we just want simple ways to manage our finances and save a little money.

The reality is that I fail at personal finance things, more often than I like. RECOMMENDED: Can you manage your money?

In personal finance, nobody's perfect






Bankers, however, say revival of stalled projects will not spur credit growth immediately. "You have to understand that once the regulatory clearances come, it will take around six months to have some actual ground level movement," an executive director with a state-run bank said. "And banks will not disburse further until there is some development." Banks have so far disbursed 51,546 crore to the 20 identified big-ticket projects. Since April, the finance minister has held review meetings with bankers and promoters in all major cities on the issue.

These are touch points that will be up for discussion at the forum." Among the confirmed participants are key policy makers, business titans, and thought leaders from humanitarian agencies and research institutions. They include Jejomar Binay, Philippine Vice President; Alicia Bala, Deputy Secretary of ASEAN; Senator Loren Legarda, member of Philippine Senate; Henry Cisneros, former US Housing Secretary and Founder/Chairman of CityView; Nestor Espenilla, Deputy Governor, Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas; Mr.

RBI's attitude towards the sharia-compliance concept is yet to be tested," said Shariq Nisar, director of research and operations at Mumbai-based Taqwaa Advisory and Shariah Investment Solutions. Running a sharia-compliant financial institution under Indian regulations is still difficult and other firms are likely to stay on the sidelines pending the success of existing schemes before deciding to join in, he added. Islamic equity and venture capital products have attracted little demand in India and NBFCs could face the same fate, said Nisar. "NBFC business overall has been declining over the years." The RBI issued guidelines for NBFCs in June, cracking down on debt issuance by an industry that relies heavily on capital markets to fund its business but has faced less regulatory oversight than banks.
