Subject: Banking wrap: Yes Bank raises Rs 1,930cr via QIP; RBI tells banks not to count failed swipes as free
The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) asked banks to not count failed and non-cash withdrawal transactions in the quota for free Automated Teller Machines (ATM) swipes.

Lenders were asked not to charge customers for such transactions at the ATMs of issuer banks.

The banking regulator also released the framework for regulatory sandbox which will help fintechs test and develop applications in a controlled environment before launching products in the market.
