    Any NBFC is is considered systemically important NBFC when its asset size is of Rs ____ or more.
    One doubt sir,,
    here for systematically important NBFCs ke liye—-500 cr
    for normal NBFCs assets size should be–100 cr?? m i right?

    1. Suraj

      see ques 2 and 3 are related;; when NBFC has minimum net owned fund od rs 2 crore; they can start functioning like NBFC. when their asset reach 500 crore then they are systematically important NBFC. So for normal NBFC asset size is Rs 2 crore. Now even in NBFC there are various types of specialised NBFC that is a detailed topic and these all have different asset criteria set by RBI. but basically if asked for normal nbfc u can answer rs 2 crore
