The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) asked banks to file forms related to foreign direct investment (FDI) only online on the e-Biz portal from February 8, said the PTI report.
With a view to "promoting ease of reporting" of such transactions, RBI, under the e-Biz project of the government, has enabled online filing of three returns -- ARF, FCGPR and FC-TRS -- with RBI.
Advance Remittance Form (ARF) is used by companies to report FDI inflows to RBI while a company submits Foreign Collaboration General Permission Route(FCGPR) Form for reporting issue of eligible instruments to overseas investor against the FDI inflow. Foreign Collaboration Transfer of Shares (FC-TRS) Form relates to transfer of securities between a resident and a person outside India.
"Based on the experience, it has been decided that beginning February 8, 2016, the physical filing of forms ARF, FCGPR and FC-TRS will be discontinued and forms submitted in online mode only through e-Biz portal will be accepted," the RBI said in a notification.
At present, both the options (online and physical) for filing of the forms are available to users.
While launching the FC-TRS module on e-Biz portal on August 24, 2015, banks were informed that the facility of physical filing will be discontinued in three months.
The decision to completely switch over to online filing of forms has been taken after assessing the readiness of banks to file these forms online, RBI said.
Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect. - Mark Twain
The market has more or less factored in a pause by the RBI on any monetary policy activity till the budget gets out of the way. After a cumulative 125 basis points cut in the repo rate by RBI during past 12 months, slowing economic conditions definitely demand further fall in the interest rates. However, growing concerns over fiscal prudence and rise in food inflation has left this option less desirable for now. Elsewhere, ECB president

Regulator Irda has indicated that the premium in the case of a "catastrophe insurance" may go up in light of a number of natural disasters hitting various parts of the country in the recent past, reported PTI.
"The general insurance industry on a whole is not making a lot of money. It requires some base correction in premium rate, especially in a case like the recent heavy rains in Chennai, which resulted in a huge loss," Irdai Chairman T S Vijayan said as per the media report.
He was interacting with reporters on the sidelines of a global conference of actuaries.
"Suppose a disaster takes place in a desert... There may not be much of loss. The Hudhud cyclone (in 2014) didn't enter the Vizag city. Had it entered the city, the loss would have been much bigger. Hence, a base correction in premium rate is required in the catastrophe insurance sector and I'm sure insurers must be looking into it," he said.
Irdai is not content with the 1.8 per cent expansion the insurance industry during the last fiscal and is hoping for a pick-up in growth in 2015-16.
"If you look at the Indian insurance industry, 2014-15 saw a positive growth, but not to the extent which one would have expected.
"Real growth was just 1.8 per cent, and the coverage was lowest among Asian markets, which recorded a real growth of 6.5 per cent. Emerging markets grew at 7.4 per cent, advanced countries 2.9 per cent, while India could grow only by 1.8 per cent," he told the conference earlier.
"This year (2015-16), we should be able to make up for the growth and the industry needs to identify which are the things relevant for capturing the customer's mind and wallet share," he said.
