(3) ENGAGEMENT OF BROKERS
For engagement of brokers to deal in investment transactions, the housing finance companies should observe the following:
(a) Transactions should not be put through the brokers’ accounts. The brokerage on the deal payable to the broker, if any (if the deal was put through with the help of a broker), should be clearly indicated on the notes/memorandum put up to the top management seeking approval for putting through the transaction and separate account of brokerage paid, broker-wise, should be maintained.
(b) If a deal is put through with the help of a broker, the role of the broker should be restricted to that of bringing the two parties to the deal together.
(c)While negotiating the deal, the broker is not obliged to disclose the identity of the counterparty to the deal. On conclusion of the deal, he should disclose the counterparty and his contract note should clearly indicate the name of the counterparty.
(d) On the basis of the contract note disclosing the name of the counterparty, settlement of deals, viz. both fund settlement and delivery of security should be directly between the parties and the broker should have no role to play in the process.
(e) With the approval of their top managements, housing finance companies should prepare a panel of approved authorized brokers which should be reviewed annually or more often if so warranted. Clear-cut criteria should be laid down for empanelment of brokers, including verification of their creditworthiness, market reputation, etc. A record of broker-wise details of deals put through and brokerage paid, should be maintained.
(f) A disproportionate part of the business should not be transacted through only one or a few brokers. Housing finance companies should fix aggregate contract limits for each of the approved brokers. A limit of 5% of total transactions (both purchase and sales) entered into by a housing finance company during a year should be treated as the aggregate upper contract limit for each of the approved brokers. This limit should cover both, the business initiated by a housing finance company and the business offered / brought to the housing finance company by a broker. Housing finance companies should ensure that the transactions entered into through individual brokers during a year normally do not exceed this limit. However, if for any reason it becomes necessary to exceed the aggregate limit for any broker, the specific reasons therefore should be recorded, in writing, by the authority empowered to put through the deals. Further, the board should be informed of this, post facto. However, the norm of 5% would not be applicable (i) to a housing finance company whose total transactions in a year do not exceed Rs 20 crores; and (ii) to housing finance companies’ dealings through Primary Dealers.
(g) The auditors who audit the treasury operations should scrutinise the business done through brokers also and include it in their monthly report to the Chief Executive Officer of the housing finance company. Besides, the business put through any individual broker or brokers in excess of the limit, with the reasons therefor, should be covered in the half-yearly review to the Board of Directors.
(h) Housing finance companies may undertake securities transactions through stock brokers only on National Stock Exchange/Bombay Stock Exchange/ Over the Counter Exchange of India.

 

 

 

Concentration of credit/ investment
32. (1)  No housing finance company shall,-
(i)    lend to-
(a) any single borrower exceeding fifteen percent of its owned fund; and
(b) any single group of borrowers exceeding twenty-five percent of its owned fund;
(ii)   invest in-
(a) the shares of another company exceeding fifteen percent of its owned fund;

 

 

 

(b) the shares of a single group of companies exceeding twenty-five percent of its owned funds;

(i) the lending of a housing finance company is in excess of the ceiling prescribed under sub-paragraph (1), such excess portion shall be brought down by the housing finance company as per the repayment schedule in due course; and
(ii) the investment of a housing finance company is in excess of the ceiling prescribed under sub-paragraph (1), such excess portion shall be disposed of within a period not  exceeding three years or within such period as may be extended by the National Housing Bank.
Notes:
(1)   For determining the above mentioned limits, off-balance sheet exposures be converted in to credit risk by applying the conversion factors explained here in above.
(2)   The investment in debentures for the above purpose be treated as credit and not investment.
(3)   The above ceilings on credit/investments shall be applicable to the own group of the housing finance company as well as to the other group of borrowers/ investee companies.
(4) “Shares” shall mean and include investment in various instruments such as Equity Shares, Preference Shares eligible for capital status, Subordinated Debt Instruments, Hybrid Debt Capital Instruments and any other instruments approved as in the nature of capital.
(5)   Investment of a housing finance company in the shares of its subsidiaries, companies in the same group and other housing finance companies, to the extent of ten per cent of its owned fund, shall carry a risk weight of 100% as prescribed at item (2) (e) of ‘Weighted Risk Assets- on balance sheet items under ‘Explanation’ to Paragraph 30 of these directions. Such investment in excess of ten per cent of its owned fund shall continue to be deducted from the net owned fund of the housing finance company as prescribed at item.(I) of  ‘Explanation’ to Section 29A of the National Housing Bank Act, 1987.
