Questions and answers

Do you have an additional question?

What is an LEI?
An LEI or Legal Entity Identifier is a unique code, consisting of 20 symbols, that allows for identification within the global financial system. An LEI code is issued to a company just once and is unique.
Who is obliged to request an LEI code?
According to the Mifid II directive 2014/65/EL, LEI codes are mandatory for all legal entities who trade in securities. The Reserve Bank of India has mandated the use of LEIs by all companies trading in OTC markets for Rupee Interest Rate derivatives, foreign currency derivatives and credit derivatives in India. Mandatory use of LEIs was phased in between August 1, 2017 and March 31, 2018, as per the RBI Notification dated June 1, 2017.
How much does an LEI code cost?
An LEI code costs from ₹4495 a year. Our full price list is available on our homepage and upon application.
How long is the LEI code valid?
The LEI code is valid for 1 year from the date of issue. The code must then be extended (via a renewal application) for the following year.
What do we do if company data changes in the Ministry Of Corporate Affairs?
Throughout the LEI code period, it is important that the company’s data in the GLEIF database matches the data in the Commercial Register. If the company’s data changes in the Ministry of Corporate Affairs, please let us know by e-mail – info@indialei.in. We will change the data in the GLEIF database (free of charge).
How long does it take to issue an LEI code?
An LEI number is usually issued within 1-2 working days of payment. If the legal structure of the company (consolidation group) is complex and additional information is required, it may take longer to issue the code. We issue 99% of codes in less than 24 hours.
Why do you need an LEI code?
Companies that operate within jurisdictions that mandate the use of LEIs will need to obtain one before they are allowed to transact on the financial market within that jurisdiction. The RBI has mandated the use of LEIs by large corporate borrowers and legal entities operating within certain financial markets.
How can a company request an LEI code?
India LEI makes requesting an LEI code for a company easy! Complete the application and pay us using internet banking. Then, wait a few days and the LEI code and the receipt will be sent to your email.
How do you pay for an LEI code?
After submitting and signing your application, you will be redirected to our payment form, where it is possible to pay by debit or credit card.
How do multiannual LEIs work?
Multiannual LEIs save you time and money. For example, if you order a 3-year LEI, registration of the LEI with a validity of 1 year is included alongside the automatic renewal of your LEI code for a further 2 years. By doing so, you do not have to deal with the renewal of your LEI code every year and, since the annual price of our multiannual contracts is cheaper, you will also save money! LEI renewal is performed 30-60 days before your next renewal date so your LEI is always valid in the GLEIF database.
Where can I verify the existence or validity of an LEI?
The validity of the LEI code can be verified on the India LEI homepage by using the search. Our database is connected to the GLEIF base and Ministry of Corporate Affairs and it is updated four times a day. LEI codes can be also verified on the website of the GLEIF.
Why use India LEI services?
India LEI  is an official LEI registration agent, which means we comply with all regulations and data transmission standards. This is especially important for companies considering registering for multiannual renewal of its LEI, since the company makes an advance payment to the registration agent for the entire period. Our database is integrated with that of  Ministry of Corporate Affairs and is updated automatically. This reduces the administrative burden on your part, as data changes within the GLEIF database are automated. The use of an official registration agent ensures secure data processing and quality service.
