Few Indian deposits in Swiss banks: Body

| | New Delhi

Indians have “few deposits” in Swiss banks compared to other global financial hubs like Singapore and Hong Kong said  a grouping of private bankers in Switzerland  on Sunday amid stepped-up efforts to check the black money menace.

Money held by Indians in Swiss banks declined to a record low of 1.2 billion franc (about Rs8,392 crore) at the end of 2015, as per the latest available official data. However, no official data is available for money in other global hubs.

Committing itself to the global framework for automatic exchange of tax information, Switzerland last week ratified the decision to implement this regime with India and 40 other jurisdictions.

The framework for automatic exchange of information requires strict adherence to data confidentiality, but the Geneva-based Association of Swiss Private Banks said it has no particular concern over India, where the rule of law seems to be properly upheld.

“There are also rather few deposits of Indian residents in Switzerland, as opposed to Singapore or Hong Kong for instance,” the association’s manager Jan Langlo told PTI from Geneva.

When asked about trends in terms of deposits from Indian residents, Langlo said it has not noticed any particular trend.
