Reserve Bank of India (RBI) Governor Shaktikanta Das on Friday asked non-banking financial companies (NBFCs) to strengthen their governance standards, compliance and risk management.

In the meeting held with managing directors and chief executive officers of select large NBFCs, including government NBFCs and housing finance companies (HFCs) in Mumbai, he asked them to improve their internal audits. These entities constitute nearly 50 per cent of the total assets of all NBFCs including HFCs.

Das advised NBFCs and HFCs to remain alert to avoid any complacency during good times.
