RBI monitors ceilings on foreign institutional investors (FII), Non-Resident Indians (NRIs) and Persons of Indian Origin (PIOs) investments in Indian companies on a daily basis and to effectively monitor the limit, it has fixed cut-off points two percentage points lower than the actual ceiling.
The foreign share holding through FIIs/ Registered Foreign Portfolios Investors (RFPIs)/NRIs/PIOs in Bank of Baroda has reached the trigger limit.
"Hence, further purchases of equity shares of this bank would be allowed only after obtaining prior approval of the Reserve Bank of India," RBI said in a notification.
