    Collection of third party account payee cheques – RBI Prohibits crediting proceeds to third party accounts

    The practice of collection of cheques crossed ‘account payee’ through third party accounts (of co-operative credit societies) is not permissible. However, to facilitate collection of cheques from a payment system angle, sub-members of the clearing houses may collect the cheques of their customers for the credit to their accounts through the sponsor member, under certain circumstances.
    Reserve Bank of India has notified that collecting banks may consider collecting account payee cheques drawn for an amount not exceeding Rs.50,000/- to the account of their customers who are co-operative credit societies, if the payees of such cheques are the constituents of such co-operative credit societies. While collecting the cheques as aforesaid, banks should have a clear representation in writing given by the co-operative credit societies concerned that, upon realization, the proceeds of the cheques will be credited only to the account of the member of the co-operative credit society who is the payee named in the cheque.

    Source : Banknet India
    However, RBI has clarified that in the event of a claim by the true owner of the cheque, the rights of the true owner of the cheque are not in any manner affected and banks will have to establish that they acted in good faith and without negligence while collecting the cheque in question.

    Reserve Bank of India (RBI) plans to issue Inflation Indexed Bonds (IIBs)

    Reserve Bank of India Logo

    Image via Wikipedia

    In India, a variant of indexed bonds, i.e. Capital Index Bond (CIB), 2002 was issued on December 29, 1997 wherein only principal repayments at the time of redemption were indexed to inflation. Based on the past experience and feedback from market participants, a new version of IIB has been designed with protection from inflation to both interest payments and principal repayments linking them to Wholesale Price Index (WPI) for all commodities.
    In the backdrop of high inflation, increasing preference of investors for diversified instruments and to further improve the depth and width of G-Sec Market, it has been felt that IIBs could be issued at the current juncture, Inflation-indexed bonds will help investors and issuers insulate themselves from inflation, and help in better risk diversification.

    The Reserve Bank of India has, placed a technical paper on ‘Inflation Indexed Bonds” for public comments. The technical paper sets out the structure of IIBs including method of indexation (principal or interest), inflation index lag, issuance method, and methodology to compute settlement price.
    Salient features
    • In the current structure of IIBs, the principal will be indexed and the coupon will be calculated on the indexed principal. This structure is the same as was set out in the discussion paper on Capital Indexed Bond issued by the Bank in 2005.
    • Since the objective of the IIBs is to provide protection against actual inflation, the final WPI will be used for indexation.
    • Final WPI with a lag of four months will be used as the Reference WPI for the first day of the calendar month in which ‘Issue Date’ and ‘Set Date’ falls.
    • As and when WPI index is being revised on technical grounds (coverage, base year, etc.), the new WPI index will be used for indexation purpose and past value of new WPI index would be computed through a linking factor.
    • In the primary auction, the IIB would be issued at par and investors would quote their bids in terms of real yield.
    • In case of reissuance, investors would bid in terms of price and settlement price may be computed multiplying the sum of the cut-off price and accrued real interest by the Index Ratio.
    Comments on the technical note may be forwarded to the Chief General Manager, Internal Debt Management Department, Reserve Bank of India, Central Office Building, 23rd floor, S.B. Road, Mumbai-400001 latest by December 31, 2010.

    TNEB online Bill Payment Site is not loading

    Tamil Nadu Electricity Board has recently permitted it’s consumers to pay their EB bills online. But it seems that EB didn’t upgrade it’s servers and bandwidth before allowing it’s customers to pay online. Result ? Very poor user experience.

    It takes unusually very long time to load the pages. It takes more than 5 minutes to process request even in broadband. Sometimes it shows no connectivity with database.

    The Govt. should take remedial steps immediately. Otherwise it won’t add any convenience to people at large.

    Gmail Security Checklist

    Image representing Gmail as depicted in CrunchBase

    Image via CrunchBase

    Google has published a checklist to stay secure and protect your gmail/google account.

    Part I . On your Computer

    1. Check for viruses and malware

    While no virus scanner can catch 100% of infections, it is still important to run a scan on your computer with a trusted anti-virus software (or install a program that runs in the background and scans continuously). If the scan detects any suspicious programs or applications, remove them immediately. Find virus scanners here.

    2. Make sure your operating system is up to date

    Operating systems release patches to repair security vulnerabilities. Whether you use Windows or Mac OS, we recommend protecting your computer by enabling your automatic update setting, and updating when you get a notification.

    3. Make sure to perform regular software updates

    Some software updates aren't included in your operating system updates, but they are just as important. Software such asAdobe Flash, Adobe Reader, and Java release regular updates that may include repairs for security vulnerabilities.

    Part II. Your Browser

    1.Make sure your browser is up to date

    To check for browser updates in Internet Explorer, select the Tools tab and click Windows Update. In Firefox, just click theHelp tab and select Check for Updates. Google Chrome automatically updates when a new version is released.

    2. Check your browser for plug-ins, extensions, and third-party programs/tools that require access to your Google Account credentials

    Plug-ins and extensions are downloadable computer programs that work with your browser to perform specific tasks. For example, you may have downloaded a plug-in or extension that checks your Gmail inbox for new messages. Google can't guarantee the security of these third party services. If those services are compromised, so is your Gmail password.

    Part III. Your Google Account

    1. Change your password

    If your account has been recently compromised, you should update your password now. In general we suggest you change it periodically, following these guidelines:

    • Pick a unique password that you haven't previously used on other sites or on Gmail. Just changing one character or number still counts as reusing your password.
    • Don't use a dictionary word or a common word that's easily guessable. Use a combination of numbers, characters, and case-sensitive letters.
    2. Check the list of websites that are authorized to access your Google Account data

    Make sure that the list of authorized websites are accurate and ones that you have chosen. If your Google Account has been compromised recently, it's possible that the bad guys could have authorized their own websites to access your account data. This may allow them to access your Google Account after you have changed your password.

    To edit the list of authorized websites:

    1. Sign in on the Google Accounts homepage.
    2. Click the My Account link displayed at the top right of the page.
    3. Click Change authorized websites. This page will list all third-party sites you've granted access to.
    4. Click the Revoke Access link to disable access for a site.
    3. Update your account recovery options

    We all may forget our passwords at some point, so we strongly encourage that you update your account recovery options. To update these options, sign in to your Google Account by going to and click Change password recovery options.

    • Recovery email address: We can use your recovery email address to communicate with you if you lose access to your account. Learn more.
    • SMS: We can send you a recovery code to your mobile phone number, which you can use to reset your password. Learn more.
    • Secret question: This option is only available if you can't use the above recovery options and only if haven't tried to sign in during the past 24 hours. An ideal answer to your security question is easy for you to remember, but hard for others to guess.

    Part IV. Your Gmail Settings

    1.Use a secure connection to sign in.

    In your Gmail settings, select 'Always use HTTPS.' This setting protects your information from being stolen when you're signing in to Gmail on a public wireless network, like at a cafe or hotel. Read more.

    2.Check for any strange recent activity on your account.

    Click the Details link next to the 'Last Account Activity' entry at the bottom of your account to see the time, date, IP address and the associated location of recent access to your account.

    3.Confirm the accuracy of your mail settings to ensure that your mail stays and goes where you want it to.

    Sign in to your account and click on the Settings link at the top to check the following tabs:

    • General: Check Signature, Vacation Responder, and/or canned responses for spammy content
    • Accounts: Verify your settings under Send mail as, which includes checking your reply-to settings, and Check mail using POP3.
    • Filters: Check that no filters are sending your mail to Trash, Spam, or forwarding to an unknown account.
    • Forwarding and POP/IMAP: Ensure your mail isn't sent to an unknown account or mail client.

    Part V. Final Reminder

    1.Watch out for messages that ask for your username and/or password. Gmail will never ask for this information.
    2.Never give out your password after following a link sent to you in a message, even if it looks like Gmail's sign-in page. Access Gmail directly by typing in your browser's address bar.
    3.Don’t share your password with other websites - Google can’t guarantee the security of other websites and your Gmail password could be compromised.
    4.Keep secrets! Never tell anyone your password, or your secret question and answer; if you do tell someone, change it as soon as possible.
    5.Clear forms, passwords, cache and cookies in your browser on a regular basis - especially on a public computer.
    6.Only select 'Stay signed in' if you're signing in from a personal computer.
    7.Always sign out when you've finished reading your mail.

    Airlines cut spot fares 20-25%

    Last-minute fares on domestic flights have fallen 20-25 per cent from the previous high levels. This follows the Ministry of Civil Aviation and Directorate-General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) threatening to take action against airlines for what officials said was unreasonably high fares. Now last-minute fares, more popularly known as `spot fares', between Delhi and Chennai were in the range of Rs 5,000 to Rs 15,000, while a Delhi-Hyderabad one-way ticket was available for between Rs 5,000 and Rs 13,000.
    Earlier, passengers were paying up to Rs 40,000 one-way for a flight between Delhi and Bangalore or Delhi and Kolkata, while a Chennai-Coimbatore flight cost up to Rs 15,000. The Ministry of Civil Aviation has taken a strong view of the airlines raising fares with the Minister of Civil Aviation, Mr Praful Patel, announcing the constitution of an Economic Advisory Committee headed by the Civil Aviation Secretary to look into tariff related issues. Earlier this month, the airlines had proposed that domestic fares be categorised into four slabs based on the distance - less than 750 km, 750-1000 km, 1000-1,400 and more than 1,400 km. The Minister had rejected the proposal.
