International Banking Statistics of India: June, September and December 2012 – Data Release

The Reserve Bank of India today released, on its Website, the data related to International Banking Statistics of India for the quarters ending June, September and December 2012. An article analysing broad trends under Locational and Consolidated Banking Statistics is being published in the July 2013 issue of the RBI Bulletin. The Locational Banking Statistics present data on international assets and liabilities according type of instrument/components, currency, country of residence and sector of counter-party/transacting unit, and nationality of reporting banks while Consolidated Banking Statistics cover data by residual maturity and sector of borrower along with the exposures by country of immediate borrower and on the reallocation of claims (i.e. risk transfers) to the country of ultimate risk.

Highlights:

  • The international assets declined by 1.4 per cent at end of December 2012 as compared to a growth rate of 21.6 per cent as at end-March 2012.

  • In contrast, the international liabilities recorded a high growth of 25.5 per cent as at end-December 2012 from a moderate 8.6 per cent as at end-March 2012.

  • The decline in international assets was led by the decline in NOSTRO balances while the increase in international liabilities was on account of NRE deposits and foreign currency borrowings.

  • The international claims of Indian banks, on immediate risk basis, on all other countries grew at a higher rate of 15.0 per cent as at end-December 2012 than 14.0 per cent as at end-March 2012.
