|Our Company was incorporated on August 09, 1994 as a public
limited company under the Companies Act, 1956 with Registration
No. 11 - 80220 under the name of Trans Warranty Finance Limited
and obtained certificate of commencement of business on August
30, 1994 from the Registrar of Companies, Maharsahtra. The name
of our Company was changed to Transwarranty Finance Limited with
effect from July 08, 2005. Our Company was incorporated with the
object of providing various financial services to corporate, financial
institutions and retail.
Being a NBFC, our Company got registered with the Reserve Bank of
India (RBI) as a deposit accepting company on August 06, 1998
bearing registration number 13.00971 and commenced our
operations as a fund based financial services company along with fee
based financial services. Our sources of funds were bank finance, fixed
deposit and securitization of receivables by foreign companies for the
fund based business. Subsequently, from the year 2002 -03, we exited
fund based business on account of reducing interest spreads and
increased focus on fee based advisory services and commenced
offering a wide range of fee-based services.
In the year 2005 our Company also ventured in the area of business
process outsourcing by entering into agreement with Citi Financial
Consumer Finance India Limited for retail banking products.
In the year 2005 our company requested RBI to convert our Company
from Category ''A' to Category 'B' NBFC (i.e., from eligible for
acceptance of public deposits to not eligible for acceptance of public
deposits), since our Company had stopped fund based activities and
acceptance of public deposits and on said requisition RBI had
issued new certificate bearing Registration no. B13.00971 to convert
our company into category 'B' NBFC w.e.f. May 12, 2005. Subsequently,
to give effect to change of name of the Company from 'Tans Warranty
Finance Limited' to 'Transwarranty Finance Limited', the RBI has issued
fresh certificate of registration dated May 12, 2006.
In the year 2005-06 in order to become an integrated financial service
provider, our company acquired a minimum of 51% shareholding in
Transwarranty Capital Pvt. Ltd, Transwarranty Forex & Commodities
Pvt. Ltd. and Transwarranty Credit Care Pvt. Ltd. and converted
these into our subsidiaries.
