The banks will have also to achieve a minimum Core Equity Tier-I capital adequacy (CET1) of 5% by FY2014, which in a staggered manner will then have to be increased to 8% by FY2018.

The , which tracks the movement of banking shares, hits three-month low is down by 3% at 9,835 points, compared with less than 2% fall in the benchmark index Nifty in late noon trades. In past two trading days, the bank Nifty lost 472 points.

Among the individual stocks State Bank of India, ICICI Bank, Punjab National Bank, Axis Bank and Bank of Baroda are trading lower by 4-6% on the National Stock Exchange (NSE).

“The immediate impact is restricted to few smaller banks. However, in the medium-term the Basel 3 guidelines imply significant capital shortage for the Indian Banking system,” Angel Broking said in a recent report.
