These banks are currently subject to concurrent regulation by the RBI and the Co-operative Societies Registrar, resulting in regulatory and supervisory lapses. In addition, RBI has no authority so far to draw up an enforceable reconstruction scheme for a cooperative bank. RBI was authorised to supersede the Board of Cooperative Banks for up to five years by the Ordinance. It also enables a cooperative bank to issue to its members or to any other individual residing within its area of operation, equity shares, preference shares, or special shares on face value or at a premium. Cooperative banks may also issue to such individuals unsecured debentures or bonds or related securities with a maturity of ten or more years. Such issuance will be subject to prior RBI approval. The changes should not affect the current powers under the State Co-operative Laws of the State Registrars of Co-operative Societies. The amendments also do not extend to Primary Agricultural Credit Societies (PACS) or cooperative societies for which long-term funding for agricultural production is the primary purpose and principal undertaking. 1 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerCancel replyYou must login or register to add a new answer.
