CCIL Reporting Platform for OTC Interest Rate Derivatives

Reserve Bank’s Annual Policy Statement 2007-08 had highlighted that it is necessary to have a mechanism for transparent capture and dissemination of trade information as well as an efficient post trade processing infrastructure for transactions in OTC interest rate derivatives, to address the attendant risks. It was announced in this context that, to begin with, CCIL would start a trade reporting platform for Rupee Interest Rate Swaps.

Clearing Corporation of India (CCIL) has developed a reporting platform in this regard which would capture the transactions in OTC interest rate derivatives (Interest Rate Swaps and Forward Rate Agreements (IRS/FRA)). The platform would be operationalised by August 30, 2007.

Reserve Bank has asked all banks and Primary Dealers to report all their IRS/FRA trades on the reporting platform within 30 minutes from the deal time. However, Client trades are not to be reported.

Banks and PDs are required to ensure that details of all the outstanding IRS/FRA contracts (excluding the client trades) are migrated to the reporting platform, by September 15, 2007.

Detailed operational guidelines in this regard would be made available by CCIL.
