Citi fraud: STR, KYC violations under RBI lens

india Updated: Jan 16, 2011 20:37 IST

The Reserve Bank of India is probing if there were violations in customer verification and monitoring of accounts, in the alleged Rs 400-cr Citibank Gurgaon fraud.

The question is whether Citibank followed the STR (Suspicious Transaction Reporting) norms, which requires a bank to alert regulatory and enforcement agencies about high-value and unusual transactions in any account.

Also under probe is whether Citibank followed the know-your-customer (KYC) norms when the accounts involved in the fraud case were opened.
