BI Regulation 14/26/PBI/2012 (Regulation
14/2012) classifies banks (conventional or sharia)
according to their Core Capital (Modal Inti). This classification,
known as BUKU (Commercial Bank according to its Business Activities
/ Bank Umum berdasarkan Kegiatan Usaha), will determine the types
of activities the bank may engage in and the services it may
BUKU 1 is the lowest grade for banks with Core Capital of less
than Rp1 Trillion while BUKU 4 is the highest grade for banks with
Core Capital of at least Rp30 Trillion and which may engage in all
banking activities whether in Rupiah or any other currency and have
capital participation in financial institutions both in and outside
Indonesia. Regulation 14/2012 also limits capital participation (up
to 15% of a Bank's capital for BUKU 2; 25% for BUKU 3; and 35%
for BUKU 4) and the credit limit or productive financing (the
lowest level being 55% of total credit or financing for BUKU 1; 60%
