The same is also available on the website of RBI i.e. www.rbi.org.in. On receipt of fraud reports from banks, various aspects related to the frauds are examined and concerned banks are advised to report the case to CBI/ Police/ SFIO, examine staff accountability, complete proceedings against the erring staff expeditiously, take steps to recover the amount involved in the fraud, claim insurance wherever applicable and streamline the system as also procedures so that frauds do not recur.

(ii)       RBI has issued two circulars  viz; (i)  ‘Security arrangements for ATMs of bank’ dated February 22, 2006 and  (ii) ‘Skimming of  ATM/Credit Cards’ dated June 26,2006  advising banks to  take various preventive measures to  combat frauds  relating to skimming or duplicating of credit cards.  The preventive measures include educating customers through cautionary  messages posted  in the web-site of card issuing banks, informing customers not to  reveal PIN in response to requests received through e-mails, to periodically verify the  transaction history, immediate reporting to the bank, if any unauthorized transaction is observed, and inform the bank if the card is lost or stolen.

(iii)      On the basis of suggestions of a Working Group set up by RBI in 2010, RBI has issued guidelines which are fundamentally expected to enhance safety, security, efficiency in banking processes leading to benefits for banks and their customers. The implementation progress are required to be reviewed and report submitted to the Board on quarterly basis.

 

(iv)      RBI vide its Master Circular dated 1.7.2011, on ”Credit Card Operation of Banks” advised  banks to set up internal control systems to combat frauds and to take pro-active fraud control and enforcement measures and to ensure that credit card operations were run on sound, prudent and profitable lines as also fulfill ‘Know Your Customer’ requirement, assess credit risk of customers, specify terms and conditions in clear and simple language, ensure prompt dispatch of bills, maintain customer confidentiality etc.
