QCI” was established by the “Indian government” and the “Indian industry’, together 1997. The Indian industry was represented by three supreme associations of the industry (Associated Chambers of Commerce and Industry of India, Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry) and Confederation of Indian Industry). They aimed to ensure the continuous promotion of the “National Quality Campaign”. And also to establish and handle the functioning of the “’ National accreditation structure”. QCI also has a nodal ministry, which is the “Ministry of Industry and Commerce”. Quality Council of India was also established to maintain a set of standard in the workings of the industry. Accreditation can be defined as a formal acknowledgement given to an entity, for it’s technological and operational competency. A formal acknowledgement given to an entity also means that it has provided services which are in accordance with the set of standards mentioned in their horizon of accreditation.


Conformity assessment becomes a very important factor for an entity to increase the face value of its business. Under the umbrella of conformity assessment, it is made sure that the products or services offered by an entity are up to the standard. Conformity assessment is very important for a customer. Because it will assure him that the product he is about to purchase is not devoid of any kind of quality benchmark and has a mark of accreditation associated with it. The most coherent manner to adhere to a “set standard of accreditation” and obtain conformity assessment, is to make sure that the product/service has its specifications achieving an international level standard. This can give a huge boost to an entity’s business. Because now if the suppliers and customers are situated in two different countries, even then the customers will be assured of their product being of international standard. Conformity assessment is one of the most important tools for a business to main good relations with its customers. Most regulators also seek the component of “Conformity assessment” in a business. It also gives an advantage to a company’s business, by making it a trustable brand in a highly competitive market.

No, all NBFCs are not allowed to accept public deposits. Only those NBFCs which are permitted by RBI to hold or accept public deposits, can. To apply with RBI to be allowed to hold public deposits, they must have an investment-grade rating of up to 1.5 times of its NOF.

Section 45-IB of the RBI Act, 1934 requires the minimum ratio of liquid assets, outstanding as on the last working day of the second previous quarter, must be 15% of public deposits. This 15% mean at least 10% has been invested in approved securities by the NBFC. And the balance 5% could have been invested in unencumbered term deposits with a scheduled commercial bank. The liquid assets may include government securities, bonds, or term deposits with any scheduled commercial bank.
