c) Net Stable Funding ratio (NSFR): (This has not been audited by Statutory Central Auditor)

Reserve Bank of India vide its circular no. BR.BPBC.No.106/21.04.098/2017-18 May 17, 2018 had issued guidelines on “Basel III Framework on Liquidity Standards - Net Stable Funding Ratio (NSFR)”. The guidelines for NSFR were effective from October 1,2021.

The objective of NSFR is ensure reduction in funding risk over a longer time horizon extending to one year by requiring banks to fund their activities in relation to the composition of their assets and off balance sheet activities, with sufficiently stable sources of funding on an on-going basis. A sustainable funding structure is intended to reduce the probability of erosion of a bank's liquidity position due to disruptions in the regular sources of funding. NSFR limits over-reliance on short term wholesale funding, encourages better assessment of funding risk across all on and off balance sheet items, and promotes funding stability.

The NSFR is defined as the amount of available stable funding relative to the amount of required stable funding. “Available Stable Funding” (ASF) is defined as the portion of capital and liabilities expected to be reliable over the time horizon considered by the NSFR, which extends to one year. The amount of stable funding required (“Required Stable Funding”) (RSF) is a function of the liquidity characteristics and residual maturities of the various assets held by the Bank as well as those of its off-balance sheet (OBS) exposures. The Available Stable Funding (ASF) is primarily driven by the total regulatory capital as per Basel III Capital Adequacy guidelines stipulated by RBI and deposits from retail customers, small business customers and non-financial corporate customers. Under the Required Stable Funding (RSF), the primary drivers are unencumbered performing loans with residual maturities of one year or more.

The runoff factors for the stressed scenarios are prescribed by the RBI, for various categories of liabilities (viz., deposits, unsecured and secured wholesale borrowings), undrawn commitments, derivative-related exposures, and offset with inflows emanating from assets maturing within the same time period. The minimum NSFR requirement set out in the RBI guideline is 100% on an on-going basis.

The Liquidity Risk Management of the Bank is governed by the Asset Liability Management (ALM) Policy approved by the Board. The Asset Liability Committee (ALCO) is a decision-making unit responsible for implementing the liquidity and interest rate risk management strategy of the Bank in line with its risk management objectives and ensures adherence to the risk tolerance/limits set by the Board.

Central Bank of India on standalone basis maintained Available Stable Funding (ASF) of ' 3,44,387.62 Crore against the RSF requirement of ' 2,13,238.27 Crore as on 31st March 2023. The NSFR for the quarter ended Mar 2023 is at 161.50%.
