67 Qualitative disclosure around LCR:
The Liquidity Coverage Ratio (LCR) standard aims to ensure that the Bank maintains an adequate level of unencumbered High Quality Liquid Assets (HQLAs) that can be converted into cash to meet its liquidity needs for a 30 calendar day time horizon under a significantly severe liquidity stress scenario specified by supervisors. The LCR promotes short-term resilience of Banks to potential liquidity disruptions by ensuring that they have sufficient HQLAs to survive an acute stress scenario lasting for 30 days.
Liquidity Coverage Ratio (LCR) =
Stock of high quality liquid assets (HQLAs)
Total net cash outflows over the next 30 calendar days
The LCR requirement has become effective for Banks from January 1, 2015. With a view to provide a transition time for Banks, the requirement was a minimum of 60% for the calendar year 2015 which increased to 70% from 1st January 2016 and has risen to 80% since 1st Jan, 2017. It will continue to rise in equal steps to reach the minimum required level of 100% on January 1, 2019, as per the time-line given below,
Intra period changes as well as changes over time:
The LCR of the Bank has been well above the mandatory requirements. The increase from last year is due to the availability of surplus liquid funds with the Bank post demonetization. HQLAs of the Bank also increased during the year on account of RBI''''s decision to allow banks to reckon government securities held by them up to an additional 1% of their NDTL under Facility to avail Liquidity for Liquidity Coverage Ratio (FALLCR) within the mandatory SLR requirement as Level I HQLA, from July 2016.
Main drivers of LCR:
In our Bank, the main drivers for LCR results are,
- The comfortable level of high quality liquid Govt. Securities maintained over the mandatory SLR requirement, which can be sold or repo in the secondary market to avail easy liquidity;
- Reasonable level of cash and excess CRR balances;
- Liquidity facilities available from RBI under Marginal Standing Facility (MSF) and Facility to avail Liquidity for Liquidity Coverage Ratio (FALLCR); as also surplus funds lent in the overnight/term money market;
- Majority of deposits from retail customers which are expected to have low run-offs under stressed conditions.
Composition of HQLA:
Major portion of the Bank''''s HQLAs constitute of Level 1 Assets viz. most liquid in nature. Such assets include- Cash, excess CRR balances, excess SLR investments, liquidity facilities available from RBI such as MSF, FALLCR, etc. Level 2 Assets constitute of high credit rated Corporate Bonds and Equity Investments after considering stringent haircuts.
Concentration of Funding Sources:
Bank''''s source of funding are comfortably spread with major reliance on small deposits rather than large wholesale funds. There were no significant counterparties in terms of concentration of funding sources. Thus, there is no undue concentration in any one source.
Derivative Exposures, Potential Collateral Calls and Currency Mismatch:
The Bank has Nil exposure to Derivatives during the year. Exposure to foreign currencies is also not significant and currency gaps are within its internal prudential limits and have been accounted for in the LCR computation. Any significant impact on liquidity on account of this is least expected.
The Treasury is in charge of the liquid assets of the Bank and manages the fund position of the Bank. The Assets Liability Management Cell, which monitors the liquidity position of the Bank at the corporate level, remains in constant touch with the Treasury. Apart from day-to day monitoring of liquidity position by the top functionaries, separate Board level and top executive level committees monitor distinct liquidity parameters and provide strategic guidance to the functionaries.
Other Relevant Major Cash Flows:
Bank has sizeable investments in bonds of Public Sector Entities and Corporate which are excluded from LCR computation on account of being in the financial sector. The Bank believes that, even under stressed conditions, these investments can serve as a reliable source of liquidity, albeit with appropriate haircuts. All outflows that the Bank considers to be sizeable or bearing an impact on its liquidity are accounted for in the LCR computation.
68. Contingent Liabilities:
Such liabilities as mentioned at Sl. No.(I) to (VI) in schedule 12 of Balance Sheet are dependent upon the outcome of court / arbitration / out of court settlement, disposal of appeals, the amount being called up, terms of contractual obligations, devolvement and raising of demand by concerned parties respectively.
