The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has asked banks and other RBI-regulated entities to ensure a complete transition away from the London Interbank Offered Rate (LIBOR) from July 1, 2023.

LIBOR is a benchmark interest rate that is used to set the interest rates on a wide range of financial products, including loans, mortgages, and derivatives. However, LIBOR has been criticized for being manipulated by banks and for not being representative of the current market conditions. As a result, the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) in the United Kingdom has announced that it will no longer publish LIBOR settings after June 30, 2023.

The RBI’s advisory to banks is a significant step in the transition away from LIBOR. The RBI has advised banks to adopt a widely accepted alternative reference rate, such as the Secured Overnight Financing Rate (SOFR), to replace LIBOR. The RBI has also advised banks to develop the systems and processes to manage the transition from LIBOR.

The RBI has also advised banks to take the following steps to ensure a smooth transition:

  • Identify all financial contracts that reference LIBOR.
  • Assess the impact of the transition on these contracts.
  • Develop a plan for the transition.
  • Implement the plan.

The RBI has said that it will provide support to banks in the transition. The RBI’s advisory to banks is a positive step in the transition away from LIBOR.
