Section 1. Short title and commencement

STATE BANK OF INDIA (AMENDMENT) ACT, 20101

[NO. 27 OF 2010]

[24th August, 2010]

An Act further to amend the State Bank of India Act, 1955

Be it enacted by Parliament in the Sixty-first Year of the Republic of India as follows—

——————–

1. Received the assent of the President on August 24, 2010 and published in the Gazette of India, Extra., Part II, Section 1, dated 25th August, 2010, pp. 1-9, No. 36

Prefatory Note—Statement of Objects and Reasons.

The State Bank of India Act, 1955 (hereinafter referred to as the SBI Act) was last amended in 1993 to enable the State Bank of India to access capital market. While State Bank of India can access capital market by issuing equity shares or bonds, or by both equity share and bonds, there is no express provision under the SBI Act to enable the State Bank to issue preference shares and also bonus shares.

2. The Basel Capital Accord, the current international framework on Capital Adequacy, was adopted in the year 1988 by many banks worldwide and by India in the year 1992.

Thereupon the Reserve Bank of India had introduced a set of norms for income recognition, provisioning and also for capital adequacy in relation to risk weighted assets. These norms were designed to put the financial accounting and prudential standards of Indian banks on a sound footing in line with current international practices.

3. The Basel Committee on Banking Supervision has worked on a new framework for international convergence on capital standards and in June 2004 related the new capital adequacy framework known as Basel II.

With the introduction of the Basel II, all the public sector banks including the State Bank of India and its subsidiary banks would be required to increase their capital base to meet the minimum requirements. Achievement of the capital adequacy norms under Basel II will improve the basic financial health of the banking system and thus improve its international credibility, since banks in many countries are also in the process of adopting these standards.

4. The State Bank of India (Amendment) Bill, 2006 was introduced in the Lok Sabha on the 18th December, 2006 which was examined by the Standing Committee on Finance. The said Bill lapsed due to the dissolution of the 14th Lok Sabha.

5. It is proposed to introduce the State Bank of India (Amendment) Bill, 2010 broadly on the same lines of the lapsed Bill incorporating therein certain recommendations of the Standing Committee on Finance.

6. The State Bank of India (Amendment) Bill, 2010 seeks to provide for enhancement of the capital of the State Bank by issue of preference shares, to enable it to raise resources from the market by public issue or preferential allotment or private placement. The Bill also aims to provide for flexibility in the management of the bank. The Bill proposes to amend the, SBI Act, inter alia, to—

(viii) allow the Central Government to appoint not more than four managing directors in consultation with the Reserve Bank;

(ix) abolish the post of vice-chairman;

(x) enable a sole shareholder or a first named holder of shares (when held jointly) of a nominal value of at least five thousand rupees to contest the election for the directorship of State Bank;

(xi) specify the qualifications for election of directors of the State Bank and to confer powers upon the Reserve Bank to notify eligibility criteria for such directors;

(xii) allow the Reserve Bank to appoint additional directors as and when considered necessary in the interest of banking policy and depositors’ interest;
