All Scheduled Commercial Banks (Including RRBs),
Dear Sir/ Madam
Filing of Security Interest relating to Immovable (other than equitable mortgage), Movable and Intangible Assets in CERSAI
Please refer to circulars DBOD.Leg.No.BC.86/09.08.011/2010-11 dated April 21, 2011, RPCD.CO.RRB.BC.No.72/03.05.33/2010-11 dated May 19, 2011, DNBS.(PD). CC.No.24/SCRC/26.03.001/2010-2011 dated May 25, 2011 and RPCD.CO.RCB.BC. No.73/07.38.03/2010-11 dated May 26, 2011 advising banks/financial institutions(FIs) to register the transactions relating to securitization and reconstruction of financial assets and those relating to mortgage by deposit of title deeds with CERSAI.
2. The Government of India has subsequently issued a Gazette Notification dated January 22, 2016 for filing of the following types of security interest on the CERSAI portal:
3. CERSAI had started registration of the data in respect of paragraphs 2 (a) to (c) above, for the security interests created on or after January 22, 2016, w.e.f. May 25, 2016 for Scheduled Commercial Banks and w.e.f. July 1, 2016 for all other entities registered with them. Further, the registration of data in respect of paragraph 2(d) above has commenced since June 8, 2017 for all banks and FIs registered with CERSAI. Meanwhile, the banks/ FIs have also started registering the security interests created before January 22, 2016 (subsisting records). However, it is observed that the extent of registration on the CERSAI portal is very low, both for current and subsisting records.
4. Banks/FIs are therefore advised to complete filing the charges pertaining to subsisting transactions by March 31, 2019. Banks/FIs are also advised to file the current charges relating to all transactions with CERSAI on an ongoing basis.
