RBI starts examining 3000 unregistered NBFCs
In the wake of concern about the actual business activities of non banking finance companies, Reserve Bank of India has started scrutiny of nearly 3,000 companies which could be carrying out non-banking finance operations.

The move is to identify companies engaged as non-banking financial activities (NBFCs) that are not registered with the Reserve Bank of India, said the media report. The central bank's move comes against the backdrop of the government efforts to crackdown on entities illegally raising large amounts of money from the public.
