b. Defining the phrase 'providing finance for housing' or 'housing finance';

c. Classifying HFCs as systemically important (asset size of Rs. 500 crore & above) and non-systemically important (asset size less than Rs. 500 crore); and

d. Reserve Bank's directions on Liquidity Risk framework &, LCR, securitisation, etc., for NBFCs, to be made applicable to HFCs.
