Overhauling of financial regulations soon: Jaitley

Date:

Mumbai: The government will soon implement a large number of legislative and administrative recommendations of the Financial Sector Reforms Commission (FSLRC), which had suggested a major overhauling of financial sector regulations.

“As the change in process of reform continues … I have not the least doubt that a large number of these (FSLRC) recommendations will actually see implementation in the days to come,” Finance Minister Arun Jaitely said at a seminar organised by the ICSI.

The Financial Sector Legislative Reforms Commission (FSLRC), chaired by Justice B N Srikrishna, has suggested a non-sectoral, principle-based approach to revamp the existing framework.

Among various suggestions, FSLRC has suggested creation of a unified financial sector regulator comprising SEBI, IRDA, FMC and part of RBI.

Jaitely said four different groups are studying the report and the implementation of the suggestions would require legislative as well as administrative changes.

FSLRC, which submitted its report to the government in March last year, has also given a draft legislation for putting in place an Indian Financial Code (IFC).

Various stakeholders, including RBI, are opposed to certain proposals under the IFC.

Jaitley said: “Some legislative changes will also be required. I think with a combination of these administrative and legislative changes, the professional regulatory mechanism will come to stay.”
