The report quoted Subbarao as saying that it will also help implement the Basel-3 norms as Indian banks would go out and open branches abroad while foreign banks will come and set up branches in India.

Basel-3 norms implementation started from April 1 this year and has to be completed by March 2018. Subbarao said India needed to learn to manage its policies in a globalized world which is currently going through a tough phase.
