The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) said on Wednesday it had decided to withdraw a short-term foreign currency funding facility provided to non-banking financial and home finance firms, with immediate effect.
"The decision has been taken after a review of the prevailing macro-economic conditions and improvements in the domestic credit and liquidity conditions," the Reserve Bank of India said in a statement.
It had introduced this facility in October 2008, which allowed the firms to raise foreign currency borrowings from the central bank to refinance short-term liabilities.
