    1. For few products RBI has given a maximum cost structure which banks can charge from the customer. Like in Buyers Credit it is currently prescribed at 6 Month LIBOR + 350bps. But there was earlier a work around as it talked about only interest and thus banks would charge more from customer other cost like commitment fee, forex advisory, etc which did not fall under that ceiling. Thus to curtail all this issue, RBI during the course of time, made it very specific, saying that if it say 6 Month Libor + 350bps that means it includes cost charged to customer under every head or form related to buyers credit transaction and nothing more than this can be charged by banks.
