50 p.c. margin on commodity exposure

MUMBAI: The Reserve Bank of India on Tuesday asked banks to maintain the margin requirements for exposure to commodity markets, just as in the case of stock markets.

An RBI notification said that for exposure in commodity markets, banks would have to maintain a minimum margin of 50 per cent. This included 25 per cent cash margin for guarantees issued by them to commodity brokers. Earlier, the banks were asked to maintain the same margins for guarantees issued by them to share and stock brokers.
