On Wednesday, RBI governor Shaktikanta Das emphasized the need for banks to enhance their governance standards, risk management practices, and compliance culture.

Key Points Addressed by the Governor

In his address, Governor Das highlighted the positive progress in areas such as asset quality, loan provisioning, capital adequacy, and profitability within the banking sector. However, he stressed the importance of further bolstering governance standards, risk management practices, and compliance culture. The discussions also delved into issues including the persistence of a gap between credit and deposit growth, liquidity risk management, ALM-related concerns, and trends in unsecured retail lending.

Emphasis on Security and Risk Management

Governor Das underscored the significance of robust cybersecurity controls, effective management of third-party risks, and proactive measures against ‘mule accounts’ to combat digital fraud. He also called for intensified customer awareness and education initiatives to address this issue.
