  • The Master Directions were issued as part of a revised regulatory framework for NBFCs known as the Scale Based Regulation (SBR).
  • The SBR framework, which was introduced on October 22, 2021, categorizes NBFCs into four layers based on their asset size and scoring methodology: Base Layer (NBFC-BL), Middle Layer (NBFC-ML), Upper Layer (NBFC-UL), and Top Layer (NBFC-TL).
  • The RBI has also announced the list of NBFCs in the Upper Layer under Scale Based Regulation for NBFCs for the year 2023-24.
  • Once an NBFC is classified as NBFC-UL, it will be subject to enhanced regulatory requirements for at least five years from its classification in the layer, even if it does not meet the parametric criteria in subsequent years.
