I thing NBFCs are not banking companies and not eligible for the provisions of section 194A. However, it seems that the matter is controversial and more debate and views are invited on this issue.
Since the law is clear so no need of any notification or circular. Banks are exempt only. NBFC are not exempt and I have faced similar situation.Banking companies are those on whom banking regulation act applies.
