Apart from this, if the director of NBFC is a partner in any firm, then strictness will be applicable to him also. All the rules changed by RBI will be effective from 1 October 2022.

In the changes made by the RBI, it was said that if the loan will be given by the NBFC to its senior officers, then the board will have to be informed about this first. Loan approval for any builder project will be available only when the project has got all the necessary approvals. Small NBFCs will have to get a board approved policy for lending to directors.
