Natgrid officials have held two meetings last year, on October 1 and December 22 with the RBI and other banks to discuss the matter.

According to the minutes of the meeting which took place on December 22 at the RBI headquarters in Mumbai, “the banks opined that such sharing of information may not be possible given the extant customer confidentiality clause and the possibility of frauds.
