The Big Story

The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has issued a draft framework for self-regulatory organisations focused on FinTech. The main idea behind the guidelines is to empower the fledgling sector to function and innovate responsibly, even without formal regulations.

The RBI emphasised the importance of striking a delicate equilibrium between fostering industry innovation and addressing regulatory priorities to safeguard consumers and manage risks. This balance is essential for maximising the FinTech sector’s positive contributions.

The SRO framework provides an effective platform for expressing industry opinions and requirements. This collaborative approach and industry-wide participation ensures a more comprehensive understanding of the sector’s needs. This also facilitates the creation of regulations that are both fair and supports responsible growth.
