Moody's upbeat on draft bill on resolution of finance firms

IANS  |  Chennai 

Global credit rating agency Investors Service on Tuesday said the draft bill on the resolution of financial firms in is a credit positive for banks in the country as it enhances overall systemic stability.

In a statement said it is an important step to having a comprehensive framework in place for the resolution of financial firms.

"Currently, the resolution of financial firms in is based on minor parts of legislation enacted for other purposes," said Srikanth Vadlamani, a Vice President and Senior Credit Officer.

According to Moody's, as per the draft bill, bail-ins is not a preferred form of resolution, with significant restrictions in place for their usage.

These restrictions include contractual bail-in clauses for instruments that may be bailed in; and requirements that bail-ins should be used only after attempts at recovery have been made.

Consequently, expects that the Indian banking system will continue to function without an operational resolution regime, and banks should continue to be rated under a basic loss given failure framework.

also said that the bill ranks depositors above senior unsecured creditors in a liquidation scenario. In contrast, under existing laws, senior unsecured creditors rank pari passu with uninsured depositors.

Under the draft bill, public sector banks will be brought under the ambit of the resolution framework. By contrast, according to existing laws, public sector bank resolution can only happen under the direction of the government.

does not expect this change to have an impact on assumption of the level of systemic support for public sector banks, because the banks' core public sector character would remain unchanged.

The draft bill also provides for a significant delineation of regulatory powers between the Reserve and the proposed Resolution Corporation.

This situation will be particularly apparent with respect to some key supervisory powers over banks, including criteria for classifying banks into the various risk categories.

Such a scenario would represent a change compared to the current structure, where the powers rest almost fully within India's central bank.

Consequently, there could be some execution risk, as the system transitions to the new arrangement takes place, said
