RBI lifts restrictions on Bajaj Finance's eCOM, Insta EMI Card with immediate effect

Bajaj Finance announced in an exchange filing that the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has lifted its restrictions on the company's eCOM and online digital 'Insta EMI Card' businesses. This means that the company can now resume the sanction and disbursal of loans, including the issuance of EMI cards, in these two segments with immediate effect.

"This action is necessitated due to non-adherence of the company to the extant provisions of digital lending guidelines of Reserve Bank of India, particularly non-issuance of key fact statements to the borrowers under these two lending products and the deficiencies in the key fact statements issued in respect of other digital loans sanctioned by the company," the central bank had said.
