New LEI mandates from the Reserve Bank of India (RBI)
50,000+ Indian organizations have been issued Legal Entity Identifiers. LEIs are mandatory for all participants in the Over-the-Counter (OTC) markets for Rupee Interest Rate derivatives, foreign currency derivatives and credit derivatives in India. LEIs must be renewed annually. Lapsed LEIs will not be deemed valid for Trade Repository (TR) reporting.
Mandated by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI), from April 1 2021, entities who undertake large value transactions (₹50 crore and above) using the Reserve Bank-run Centralised Payment Systems must obtain and use an LEI. RBI has asked member banks using its Real Time Gross Settlement (RTGS) and National Electronic Funds Transfer (NEFT) to advise entities to obtain LEI in time, if they do not already have one. Read the full RBI LEI implementation schedule.

Legal Entity Identifier Frequently Asked Questions
WHY DO LEIs FROM RAPIDLEI COST LESS THAN OTHER ISSUERS?
In order for every organization in the world to obtain an LEI code we need an LEI issuing platform that can scale. We built a solution that automates the LEI application process by connecting to the worldwide business registries in real time. This makes applications faster, and it makes the operational costs much lower. We pass on these savings to you by providing LEIs at a much lower cost than any of our competitors.
DOES RAPIDLEI ISSUE ACCREDITED, RECOGNIZED LEIS ACCEPTED BY THE RBI FOR INDIA COMPANIES?
RapidLEI is one of about 30 accredited LEI Issuers, also known as LOUs (Local Operating Units). RapidLEI was accredited in June 2018 and we sit alongside organizations like the Clearing Corporation of India Ltd (CCIL and its LEI India Limited organization), Bloomberg LEI, DTCC (GMEI Utility LEI), the LSEG (London Stock Exchange Group) UK LEI issuer, and others. We supply registration, renewal and other LEI services for legal entities wishing to utilize LEIs.
RapidLEI Legal Entity Identifiers are accepted by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI).
WHO IS THE GLEIF?
The Global LEI Foundation (GLEIF) was established by the Financial Stability Board and the G20 in 2014. The GLEIF is tasked to support the implementation and use of the LEI.
HOW FAST IS RAPIDLEI GROWING?
Since launching in 2018 the GLEIF has consistently recognized RapidLEI has the fastest growing LEI Issuer. RapidLEI is the #1 issuer of new LEIs globally and the #1 LEI Issuer for data quality. You can track LEI growth and data quality statistics from RapidLEI, DTCC (GMEI Utility LEI), and Bloomberg LEI at rapidlei.com/stats.
DO YOU HAVE TO BE A COMPANY TO GET AN LEI?
LEI numbers can be issued to registered companies and subsidiaries, non-profit organizations, sole proprietors, international branch offices, funds and trusts.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO REGISTER MY LEI?
The RapidLEI platform uses automation to make the LEI application process quick and easy. Many LEIs are issued in just minutes, but if company identity data needs additional human-based checks, it takes a little longer. If this is the case, we still issue your LEI in just hours, and almost always on the same day as application.
I ALREADY HAVE AN LEI, HOW DO I RENEW IT WITH RAPIDLEI?
Only the LOU managing the LEI can renew the LEI. If you want to renew an existing LEI with RapidLEI, you must first transfer it to RapidLEI. This is a simple process and our web forms guide you through the process (click for LEI transfer process).
HOW DO I FIND OUT IF MY LEI IS LAPSED, INACTIVE OR INVALID?
