The Reserve Bank of India has given permission for CRIF Connect Private, a subsidiary of CRIF S.P.A., to begin operations as an NBFC Account Aggregator (AA). With CRIF’s legacy, expertise, and experience, CRIF Connect is ideally situated to serve the interests of financial institutions as well as customers. A multinational corporation, CRIF specialises in credit bureau, outsourcing and processing services, credit solutions, and business information.
The application will be accessible via the web and mobile devices, enabling users to choose the data they want to share with the financial institution in real time and examine all of their financial information in one location. Getting a license to act as an account aggregator takes work. Let us discuss the approval given to CRIF to act as an account aggregator, what is an account aggregator, the process of getting registration and the responsibilities to do after obtaining the certificate.
The financial organisation known as the NBFC Account Aggregator serves as the Account Aggregator for NBFC customers. The NBFC-AA gathers and delivers data on clients’ accounts with various NBFC businesses. The customer account information will be presented as organised, aggregated, and retrievable data that will show the customer’s financial involvement in a variety of NBFC products, such as mutual funds, insurance, etc.
A type of budgetary component known as the NBFC-AA (NBFC Account Aggregator) is involved in the process of providing information to NBFC clients identified with accounts held by clients in various NBFCs. Such information will be organised and united. The information will be in relation to the customer’s financial connection with the various NBFC products.
According to RBI-approved criteria, it is an end-to-end encrypted platform that securely collects and transfers a consumer’s financial data across financial institutions based on their explicit authorisation, making data sharing extremely safe.
One of the most prominent open financial data-sharing protocols that are subject to R.B.I. regulation is Account Aggregator. It enables users to securely and digitally communicate their financial data with a variety of financial institutions quickly. It makes it easier for financial institutions to quickly and conveniently access clients’ financial data with their approval.
The account aggregator licence will enable us to participate in the transformational shifts in the financial industry. In a manner similar to how U.P.I. altered the payment environment, Account Aggregator will revolutionise digital lending and financial inclusion.
Better credit options would be available to small and medium-sized firms, and banks and other financial institutions would have the chance to widen their lending activities as Financial Information Providers, R.B.I., SEBI, IRDAI, and PFRDA have already integrated with the ecosystem of account aggregators at various stages (F.I.P.). With banks and other financial institutions, adding GSTN (goods and service tax network) as a F.I.P. will be crucial in enabling the flow-based loan facility.
The A.A. equation consists of these three fundamental parts:
Financial Information Provider: Organisations that give lenders the paperwork they require to consider loans. The mutual fund industry, insurance companies, bill/tax platforms, banks and NBFCs are a few examples.
Account Aggregators: The platform gathers and saves the files supplied by the F.I.P.s in an “electronic consent artefact” (similar to a locker that lenders can only access with the borrower’s permission).
Financial Information User: Users of financial information include banks, NBFCs, credit card businesses, digital loan platforms, and others.
Every applicant who needs to obtain a license as an account aggregator must follow this registration process:
The bank may cancel the certificate of registration If a company does any of the following:
(a) Ceases to operate as an Account Aggregator in India.
(b) It has not complied with any requirement that was attached to the issuance of the certificate of registration.
(c) The Bank becomes aware that the Account Aggregator is no longer qualified to hold the certificate of registration.
(d) At any time fails to meet any of the requirements.
(e) Fails to follow any instructions given by the bank, keep records, publish and disclose its financial situation in accordance with any legal requirements, comply with any orders or directions given by the bank or provide its books of account or other pertinent documents for inspection when the bank requests it.
CRIF Connect is ideally situated to serve the interests of financial institutions as well as customers. The account aggregators framework aims to make loan applications for consumers considerably simpler and more secure and help them make wiser financial choices. Even though creating an account takes a moment, its advantages are substantial. With an account aggregator, obtaining loans from financial institutions, digital loans, and portfolio management services requires only one step.
