              Reserve Bank of India has imposed a monetary penalty of 20 lacs on M/s Shriram City Union Finance Ltd.

              The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has imposed a monetary penalty of ₹20 lakh on M/s Shriram City Union Finance Ltd. for violation of directions/orders issued by Reserve Bank of India from time to time.

              Reserve Bank of India officials conducted a scrutiny of sample loan accounts of the company during November, 2015.

Reserve Bank of India officials observed that the company has violated various provisions of the Fair Practices Code guidelines issued by the Bank under Section 45 L of the RBI Act, 1934.

Hence, the company was issued a Show Cause Notice (SCN) on August 1, 2016 for imposition of penalty.

The company’s response to the SCN was not found to be satisfactory.

After considering the facts of the case and the company’s reply, as also, personal submissions made during the hearing, Reserve Bank of India came to the conclusion that the violations as observed during scrutiny were substantiated which warranted imposition of monetary penalty on the company.

Accordingly, a penalty of ₹20 lakh has been imposed on the company.
