Basel III is an international regulatory framework with a set of reforms to improve the regulation, supervision and risk management within the banking sector.

To comply with global Basel-III capital regulations, banks need to improve and strengthen their capital planning process.

These norms are being implemented to mitigate concerns on potential stresses on asset quality and consequential impact on performance and profitability of banks.

Indian banking system has been implementing Basel III standards in phases since April 1, 2013. The banks are expected to fully implement these norms by March 2019.
