Financial Services law firm in India

India has a broad financial industry that is rapidly growing due to both the development of already-existing financial services companies and the entry of new players. Commercial banks, insurance firms, non-banking financial institutions, co-ops, pension funds, mutual funds, and other smaller financial organisations make up the sector. The banking regulator has permitted the creation of new organisations, such as payment banks, expanding the variety of organisations functioning in the market. Further, India’s economy is currently among the most dynamic in the world because of its thriving banking and insurance industries.

The insurance industry has responded favourably to the loosening of foreign investment regulations, with several corporations declaring plans to raise their interests in joint ventures with Indian firms. Several joint venture agreements between major international insurance companies and regional firms may be struck throughout the ensuing quarters. By 2028, India is expected to be the fourth-largest global private wealth sector.

Does The Reserve Bank Oversee Every Financial Institution?

Not at all. Although NBFCs, Housing Finance Companies, Merchant Banking Companies, Stock Exchanges, Companies Engaged in the Business of Stock-Broking/Sub-Broking, Venture Capital Fund Companies, Nidhi Companies, Insurance Companies, and Chit Fund Companies are exempt from the requirement of registration under Section 45-IA of the RBI Act, 1934 subject to certain conditions, they are not required to register.

National Housing Bank regulates housing finance firms, the Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) regulates merchant bankers, venture capital fund companies, stock exchanges, stock brokers, and sub-brokers, and Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority regulates insurance companies. Similar to how Nidhi Companies are governed by the Ministry of Corporate Affairs, the Government of India, and Chit Fund Companies are, and so too, are the respective State Governments. To prevent duality of regulation, the Reserve Bank specifically exempts companies that do financial operations but are also subject to the jurisdiction of other authorities from its regulatory obligations.
