Background of Basel-II
What is BIS ?
The Bank for International Settlements (BIS) is an international organization, which fosters international monetary and financial co-operation and serves as a bank for central banks. The BIS fulfils this mandate by acting as: i) a forum to promote discussion and policy analysis among central banks and within the international financial community; ii) a centre for economic and monetary research; iii) a prime counterparty for central banks in their financial transactions agent or trustee in connection with international financial operations.
The Head Office is in Basel, Switzerland, and Established on 17 May 1930. The BIS strongly advises caution against fraudulent schemes.
What is BASEL-I ?
Basel Committee on Banking Supervision (BCBS) brought out the guidelines for calculation of capital charge on Loans & Advances and Investments based on the Risk Weights applicable to the counter –party / borrower- constituent.
What is BASEL-II ?
Basel –II is recommendatory framework for banking supervision, issued by the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision in June 2004. The objective of Basel-II is to bring about international convergence of capital measurement and standards in the banking system.
What are three pillars?
Pillar-1: Minimum Capital Requirements- Deals with the maintenance of regulatory capital calculated for three major components of risk that a bank faces: Credit Risk, Operational Risk and Market Risk.
Pillar-2: Supervisory Review Process- Deals with regulatory response to the first pillar, giving regulators much improved tools over those available to them under Basel-I.
Pillar-3: Market Discipline Requirements- The third pillar greatly increases the disclosures that the bank must make.
Money Laundering means –
– Properties acquired or earned directly or indirectly through illegal means;
Or, Illegal transfer, conversion, concealment of location of property, acquired or earned directly or indirectly, through       legal or illegal means or providing assistance to such activities.
Placement – Illegal funds or assets are first brought into the financial system.
Layering – Illegal funds or assets are moved, dispersed and distinguished to conceal their illegal origin
Integration – Illegal funds or assets are entered into the economy appearing as normal business funds.


Credit Risk Grading (CRG): It is an effective tool based on pre-specified scale reflecting the credit risk for                                                         an exposure.

CRG is mandatory as per BRPD Circular No.18   of May’2005

Usage of CRG:

  • Obligor level analysis
  • Credit Selection & Pricing
  • Monitoring & Internal MIS

History of CRG:

  • LRA introduced in 1993 suffers from subjectivity
  • Risk Grade Score Card introduced in 2003 is not comprehensive
  • CRG introduced in 2005; simplified & user-friendly

It is a legal transaction as a result of which the lender acquires certain rights over the property and the borrower is refrained from dealing in them.
What is charge creation over securities?
Charging a security means making it available as a cover for an advance.
What is document?
It means written record, which serves as an evidence in respect of a transaction.
What is documentation?
Documentation is the process of execution of documents in right form and in lawful manner.
What is Pari-passu charge?
Pari-passu charge over the assets of the borrower means that the lenders are entitled to have equal rights over the assets as per the agreed share.
Method of creating charge on security:   (i) Pledge, (ii) Hypothecation, (iii) Mortgage, (iv) Lien,
(v) Assignment & (vi) Set-Off.
The method of charging used depends upon:
n   The type of property to be charged
n   The nature of the advance
n   The degree of control over the debtor’s property required by the banker.
Pledge: Pledge is the bailment of goods as security for payment of a debt or performance of a promise.
Bailment: Bailment is the delivery of goods by one person to another for some purpose, under a contract the goods    shall, when the purpose is accomplished, be returned or otherwise disposed of, according to the directions of the person delivering them.
§ Always based on contract.
§ Movable properties only (Money is excluded)
§ Delivery of goods is essential (Transfer of possession)
§ Ownership is not transferred but only special right of retaining the goods until payment of debt.
Hypothecation: Hypothecation is a charge against property for an amount of debt where neither ownership nor possession is passed to the creditor.
§  It is floating charge, it is rather precarious & Borrower binds himself to give possession of the hypothecated goods to the bank when called upon to do so.
Mortgage: Mortgage is transfer of interest in specific immovable property for the purpose of securing the payment of money advanced or to be advanced by way of loan, an existing or future debt or the performance of an engagement which may give rise to pecuniary liability.
Types of Mortgage:
§  Simple §  Conditional Sale §  Usufructuary §  English §  Anomalous
Lien: A lien is the right of a creditor in possession of goods, securities or any other assets belonging to the debtor  to retain them until the debt is repaid.
Negative Lien: The banker sometimes asks a borrower to execute a letter declaring that his assets are free  from encumbrance at the time advance is made. The borrower is also undertakes that the  assets stated in  the said letter shall not be encumbered or disposed of without the Bank’s  permission in writing so long the advance continues. This undertaking is a Negative Lien.
Set-Off: A set-off is a right which enables a creditor to adjust wholly or partially a debt balance in the debtors account with any credit balance lying in his (debtors) favour.
Assignment: An assignment means a transfer of right of property or debt (existing or future) by one person to        another person.
The most common types of assignment in banks are:

  • Contract Money, Supply Bills & Life Insurance Policy

Assignment as security is not a good one due to following reasons:

  • Breach of the terms of contract between assignor and his debtor may hamper the interest of Banker.
  • Value of the assignment does not depend only on the integrity and credit worthiness of assignor but also on the assignor’s debtor.
  • The assignor’s debtor can exercise his right of set-off; if the assignor has any debt to him.
A lien differs in that while it is a creation of law under certain circumstances without any agreement whatsoever between the parties, all others originate as a result of agreement of the parties. Then, it is a defensive right, not enforceable at a court of law, while others are positive rights.
Hypothecation Pledge
Constructive delivery of possession Physical delivery of possession
A hypothecatee can not sell goods without obtaining a decree of the court. Possible to sell goods without obtaining a decree of the court after giving a reasonable notice to the pledgor.

Cash flow:
The statement is designed to identify all activities related with cash transactions and shows the net effect on the cash balance during a period of time. In other words, by cash flow statement we show inflow and outflow of cash and thereby net position of cash during a certain period.
In cash flow statement all the activities are categorized into 3 groups:-
1.                   Operating Activities: Cash flow from Operating Activities are generally derived from the principal revenue                  producing activities of an enterprise. Therefore, they generally result from the transactions and other events                that enter into the determination of net profit.
2.                   Investing Activities: Cash flows represent the extent to which expenditures have been made for resources                intend to generate future income and cash flows.
3.                   Financing Activities: It is useful in predicting claims on future cash flows by providers of capital to the                enterprise.
Cash flow statement is prepared (basically operating activities) using two methods:-
i)                     Direct Method: whereby major classes of gross cash receipts and gross cash payments are disclosed.
ii)           Indirect Method: whereby net profit or loss adjusted for the effect of transactions of a non-cash nature, any                deferrals or accruals of past or future operating cash receipts or payments, and items of income or expenses                associated with investing or financing cash flows.
A cash flow statement helps management in the area of financial planning and control. In other words, it can serve the following purposes:-
a)       A cash flow statement gives management a better idea as to the nature of cash transactions and their impact on cash balance.
b)       In case of surplus of cash, it helps management to take investment decisions.
c)       In case of shortage of cash, it helps management to take financing decisions.

What is UCP?


The Uniform Customs and Practice for Documentary Credits, 2007 Revision, ICC Publication no. 600 (“UCP”) are rules that apply to any documentary credit (“credit”) (including, to the extent to which they may be applicable, any standby letter of credit) when the text of the credit expressly indicates that it is subject to these rules. They are binding on all parties thereto unless expressly modified or excluded by the credit-
UCP is the internationally recognized set of rules governing the use of letters of credit also known as documentary credits. UCP is written into virtually every letter of credit and accepted worldwide


Why do the UCP rules change?
The UCP rules were first published in 1933, and revised by the ICC in 1951, 1962, 1974, 1983 and 1993. This latest revision of the rules is the first to take place since 1993, and represents more than three years of work by the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC). The ICC claims that UCP 600 will be ‘modern rules for a changing world’


Who will be affected by the changes?
The changes from UCP 500 will have a considerable effect on all those involved in trading internationally who use letters of credit to arrange their payments. Exporters, importers, bankers, lawyers and transporters of goods will all need to refer to the new rules come July


What are the changes?
The ICC summarises the changes as:

  • A leaner set of rules, with a reduction in the number of articles from 49 to 39
  • A new section of ‘definitions’, containing terms such as ‘honour’ and ‘negotiation’
  • The replacement of the phrase ‘reasonable time’ for acceptance or refusal of documents
  • A new provision concerning addresses of the beneficiary and the applicant
  • An expanded discussion of ‘original documents’
  • Re-drafted transport articles aimed at resolving confusion over the identification of carriers and agents
What are the new definitions?
The new definitions are an attempt to avoid the various interpretations made by individual banks and/or their employees to delay or prevent acceptance of documents as well as clarify some terms.

The definitions include:

Confirmation: means a definite undertaking of the confirming bank, in addition to that of the issuing bank, to honour or negotiate a complying presentation.

  • to pay at sight if the credit is available by sight payment
  • to incur a deferred payment undertaking and pay at maturity if the credit is available by deferred payment
  • to accept a bill of exchange (“draft”) drawn by the beneficiary and pay at maturity if the credit is available by acceptance


Negotiation: means the purchase by the nominated bank of drafts (drawn on a bank other than the nominated bank) and/ or documents under a complying presentation, by advancing or agreeing to advance funds to the beneficiary on or before the banking day on which reimbursement is due to the nominated bank.


What is included in the expanded discussion of original documents?
Article 17, entitled ‘Original Documents and Copies’ includes a new clause, which states that ‘at least one original of each document stipulated in the credit must be presented’.
What other key changes are there?

Article-19 Transport Document Covering at Least Two Different Modes of
Article-39 Assignment of Proceeds
Article-20 Bill of Lading

Many of the articles have simply been reworded or amended to make the meaning clearer. Some of the articles from UCP 500 have been condensed while some have had extra clauses added to clarify certain points.
One example is Article 7, entitled ‘Issuing Bank Undertaking’. This has a new clause (b), which states ‘An issuing bank is irrevocably bound to honour as of the time is issues the credit’.
In general, UCP600 is easier to read than UCP500. It is more direct and also addresses a number of issues that have been causing problems over the last few years.
