What are Foreign Banks?
Foreign Banks are international banks doing banking business in India through its branches. Generally, their headquarters are located in other countries. Foreign banks are required to follow the regulations of both the home country and host countries. International banks are operating in India either as a branch mode or WOS (Wholly-owned Subsidiary) mode.
RBI policy towards presence of foreign banks in India is based upon two basic principles. They are reciprocity and single mode of presence. By reciprocity, it means that overseas banks are given near national treatment in India only if their home country allowed Indian banks to open branches there without much restrictions. By single mode of presence, it means that RBI allows either of the branch mode or a wholly owned subsidiary (WOS) mode in India. Some of the other policy guidelines of RBI towards foreign banks are as follows:
- Foreign Banks have to adhere to mandated Capital Adequacy requirements as per Basel Standard.
