RBI to provide exemptions for FPI investments in defaulted bonds

Mumbai, Feb 5 : In a bid to promote more investments by foreign portfolio investors (FPI), the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has decided to extend exemptions to FPIs into defaulted corporate bonds.

FPIs in defaulted corporate bonds will be exempt from the short-term limit and the minimum residual maturity requirement under the Medium Term Framework (MTF).

At present, FPIs can invest in security receipts and debt instruments issued by Asset Reconstruction Companies and debt instruments issued by an entity under the insolvency process and these investments are exempted from the short-term limit and minimum residual maturity requirement under the MTFs for investment by FPIs in corporate bonds.
