Non-Banking Financial Company or NBFC is mostly involved in the principal business of loans and advances, acquisition of shares/stocks/bonds/debentures/securities issued by Government or local authority along with various marketable securities like leasing, hire-purchase, insurance business and chit business.

However, it doesn’t include any institution with the principal business of agriculture or industrial activity, purchase or sale of any goods or providing any services along with the sale/purchase/construction of immovable property.

NBFC Registration in India: Procedure

According to Section 45, I (a) of the RBI Act, 1934, a company that is already incorporated and has a minimum net owned funds of Rs. 2 crores can only register itself in India. So, with the basics out of the way, let’s look at the steps.

  • First, you need the company incorporation certificate which is registered under either Companies Act, 2013 or the Companies Act, 1956 and it must be a Private or Public Limited Company.
  • Then, you must apply for online registration on RBI’s official COSMOS website.
  • On the COSMOS website, you’ll find an Excel application form that you have to download, fill up with required information and upload again on the website.
  • Once you have completed the submission, you’ll receive a Company Application Reference Number (CARN) for the CoR (Certificate of Recognition) application filed online.
  • After that, you’ll have to submit a physical copy of the application along with all the necessary documents to your Regional Office of the Reserve Bank of India.
  • ROC will verify the application and submitted documents. If everything’s okay, the Head Office of RBI will issue the NBFC license.
