The Reserve Bank of India has imposed a monetary penalty of Rs 30 million on Lakshmi Vilas Bank Ltd. (LVB) for contravention of instructions relating to opening and operation of current accounts, extending bill discounting facilities to non-constituents and walk-in customers and non-adherence to KYC norms.
“This action is based on deficiencies in regulatory compliance and is not intended to pronounce upon the validity of any transaction or agreement entered into by the bank and its customers,” said a press release.
RBI had received a complaint regarding irregularities in bill discounting/purchasing at one of the bank’s branches. RBI carried out an examination of the irregularities. Explanation from the bank was also obtained by RBI. On the basis of the examination of RBI and explanation furnished by the bank, a show cause notice was issued to the bank for violation of certain regulations and instructions issued by RBI.
After considering the bank’s reply, as also, personal submissions, information submitted and documents furnished, the RBI came to the conclusion that these violations were substantiated and warranted imposition of monetary penalty.
