What is SupTech?

SupTech, or supervisor technology, is the technology used by the regulatory authority for monitoring and ensuring regulatory compliance by the regulated entities. The regulators receive data feeds directly from the institutions they are regulating. Earlier, they had to go out and collect data, then data feed into their systems and later analyze it using machine learning to identify suspicious activities like transactions or behaviors.

The two major initiatives being implemented by the Reserve Bank of India are the Centralized Information Management System (CIMS) and An Integrated Compliance Management and Tracking System (ICMTS).

SupTech initiatives are implemented between RBI and Supervisory Entities (SEs) for seamless reporting, enhancing data management, and data analytics capabilities.
