The Reserve Bank of India Opens Door for Banking M&As, Allows Individuals to Own More Than 10% in Banks

The Reserve Bank of India has thrown open the doors for mergers and acquisitions in the banking industry by signaling that it is open to persons owning more than 10% stake in a bank. For the first time in decades the central bank has said that it could permit promoters, or investors to own more than 10% if the applicant meets certain conditions including if it is in public interest and in the desirability of diversified ownership. Many investors who owned up to 4.99% in banks and were keen on raising it but did not do so till now will have an opportunity to raise their holdings. If they get the central bank permission to buy 5%, then they automatically have a right to go up to 10%. For a central bank which has been rigid about the 5% cap on ownership and a 10% voting rights to ensure that no single holder gets a dominant position in running a bank, the latest is a reversal of policy.
