In terms of Section 45-IA of the RBI Act, 1934 it is mandatory for a company to obtain Certificate of Registration (CoR) from Reserve Bank of India (RBI) before commencing or to carry on business of a non-banking financial institution. It has been observed that there are NBFCs which are no longer engaged in the business of NBFI but still continue to hold the CoR even though they are not required/eligible to hold the CoR granted by RBI. In order to ensure that only NBFCs which are actually engaged in the business of NBFI hold CoR, it has been decided that all NBFCs should submit a certificate from their Statutory Auditors every year to the effect that they continue to undertake the business of NBFI requiring holding of CoR under Section 45-IA of the RBI Act, 1934. The first such certificate should relate to the financial year ending March 31, 2006. The certificate from the Statutory Auditors in this regard may be submitted to the Regional Offi ce of the Department of Non-Banking Supervision under whose jurisdiction the NBFC is registered, latest by June 30, every year with reference to the position of the company as on March 31 of that year. The certificate for the year ending March 31, 2006 need to be submitted latest by October 31, 2006
