RBI has directed all banks to adopt Standardized approach in respect of Credit Risks.

Commercial Real Estates 100%
Unrated Exposure 100%

2. IRBA – Internal rating Based Approach
At present all advances of Rs. 5.00 crore and above are being rated from external agencies in our bank. IRBA is based on bank’s internal assessment. It has two variants (Foundation and advanced). Bank will do its own assessment of risk rating and requirement of Capital will be calculated on
• Probability of default (PD)
• Loss given default (LD)
• Exposure of default (ED)
• Effective maturity. (M)

Bank has developed its own rating module system to rate the undertaking internally. The internal rating is being used for the following purposes:
1. Credit decisions
2. Determination of Powers
3. Price fixing
