Let’s learn What is NBFC-ICC??

RBI has harmonized the categories of NBFCs so as to categorize them based on the principle of regulation by activity rather than regulation by the entity.

The re-categorization has been done to provide NBFCs with greater operational flexibility. Following this, three major categories of NBFC viz. Asset Finance Company, Investment Company and Loan Company (which cover 99% of the NBFCs by number) have been merged into a new category of NBFC-Investment and Credit Company (NBFC-ICC)


RBI defines the new category as

“Investment and Credit Company – (NBFC-ICC)” means any company which is a financial institution carrying on as its principal business – asset finance, the providing of finance whether by making loans or advances or otherwise for any activity other than its own and the acquisition of securities; and is not any other category of NBFC as defined by RBI in any of its Master Directions.

The harmonization of the categories is part of the effort by RBI to harmonize the NBFC sector which has largely been regulated entity wise as regulations have evolved over a period of time. The Committee on Comprehensive Financial Services for Small Businesses and Low-Income Households (chaired by Dr. Nachiket Mor) and Internal Committee (Chairman: Shri G. Padmanabhan), which submitted their reports in January 2014 and April 2014 respectively, had recommended harmonization of the various categories of NBFCs for the first time.
