Indian central bank, bank executives to discuss supervisory issues in May -sources
India’s central bank will hold separate meetings with the executive of state-run and private banks late next month to discuss supervision, ethics and governance issues, five banking sources said on Thursday.
Reserve Bank of India (RBI) officials, including Governor Shaktikanta Das, will meet with executives at state-run banks on May 22 and with private banks’ executives on May 29, the sources said.
“The RBI has been regularly gathering inputs from banks about the status of supervisory methods, risk management and stress testing,” said a senior banker at a private sector lender.
“The RBI is probably looking to discuss the feedback with banks’ management on a broader and individual level.”
RBI Governor Shaktikanta Das will address the chairpersons and directors of state-run banks on these topics, including the role of the board of directors on a bank’s “assurance functionalities”, one of the sources said.
IndiGo market share soars to new heights in March while SpiceJet struggles
March air traffic data from the Directorate General of Civil Aviation shows a significant divergence in the fortunes of two listed Indian airlines.
InterGlobe Aviation Ltd, the parent company of IndiGo, saw a 90 basis point (one basis point is one-hundredth of a percentage point) sequential increase in market share to 56.8% in March, marking a six-month high. In stark contrast, SpiceJet Ltd’s market share plunged to a fiscal year low of 6.4%, down from 12.7% in March 2018.
A series of setbacks over the past three-four years, including the grounding of Boeing 737 Max fleet, delayed aircraft deliveries, the pandemic, and surging crude oil prices, have weighed heavily on Spice Jet’s performance.
