Mckinsey and Accenture to develop RBI’s AI project  for its supervisory function Economy 4 min read

The Reserve Bank of India (RBI)  has selected global consultancy firms McKinsey and Company India LLP and Accenture Solutions Pvt Ltd India to develop systems using artificial intelligence (AI)and machine learning(ML) for its supervisory functions.

The RBI intends to use advanced analytics, artificial intelligence, and machine learning to analyse its huge database and to  improve its regulation and supervision over banks and NBFCs. 

Across the world, regulatory and supervisory authorities are using machine learning techniques (commonly referred to as 'suptech' and 'regtech') for assisting supervisory and regulatory activities.

Regulatory and Supervisory function of RBI 

RBI is the apex central bank of India which has been given the regulatory and supervisory power over banks and Non Banking Financial Companies (NBFC).  RBI derives its regulatory and supervisory power from the Banking Regulation Act, 1949 and Reserve Bank of India Act, 1934

The Reserve Bank of India regulates NBFC under the Reserve Bank of India act 1934.

However there is a difference between regulatory and supervisory functions.

Difference between Regulatory and Supervisory function 

Regulation refers to the written rules that define acceptable behaviour and conduct of the financial institutions.  Granting of licence and cancellation of licence is an important function of regulation.

Supervision refers to the enforcement of these rules. In banking supervision refers to the auditing and supervision of the accounts of the financial institutions .
