VSoft Technologies, Calicut City Service Co-operative Bank and Dvara Kshetriya Gramin Financial Services have applied for a small finance bank license, the central bank said.
There are also two individual applicants. Pankaj Vaish and others have sought universal banking license while Akhil Kumar Gupta has applied for a small finance bank license.
Both the licenses are now available ‘on tap’. RBI released the names of applicants saying that these applications have been received so far.
Last month, RBI announced the constitution and composition of the standing external advisory committee for evaluating the applications.
