 DMMD Circular No. 04 of 2021 February 18, 2021

The Presidents/ Chief Executives
All Banks / DFIs

Dear Sirs/Madams,

Statutory Liquidity Requirements

Please refer to DMMD Circular No.05 of 2018 and BSD Circular No.04 of 2004, in terms of which Banks and Development Finance Institutions (DFIs) holding of PIBs (fixed rate) are counted towards maintenance of Statutory Liquidity Requirements (SLR) up to 15% and 5% of their liabilities (subject to SLR) respectively.

In this regard, it has been decided to withdraw aforesaid limits applicable on PIBs for SLR purpose. Accordingly, henceforth holdings of PIBs by banks and DFIs shall be fully counted towards maintenance of SLR.

The above instructions will be effective immediately. All other instructions on the subject will remain unchanged.




Yours truly,

(Rizwana Rifat)
     Additional Director
