Ahmednagar : Central Bank of India Reserve Bank of India(RBI) has taken major action. Reserve Bank of India has canceled the license of Nagar Urban Co-operative Bank, which has a glorious tradition of more than 113 years and is the largest co-operative bank in Ahmednagar city. The Reserve Bank has ordered that the bank should not start operations after the end of banking operations on Wednesday. This means that now, from Thursday, October 5, transactions cannot be made through the bank.
Additional Secretary and Central Joint Registrar of the Ministry of Cooperatives have been instructed to appoint an administrator to the bank. Reserve Bank of India Chief General Manager Yogesh Dayal issued these orders. Urban Bank does not have sufficient capital and earning opportunities to carry out banking business. This does not comply with the provisions of Section 56 of the Banking Regulation Act, 1949. RBI has also said that it is not in the interest of its depositors to continue the bank in such a situation.
In view of the current financial condition of the bank, it is unable to pay the full amount of deposits to the existing depositors, and allowing the bank to continue its business would adversely affect the public interest. The RBI has mentioned in its order that the license of the bank has been canceled due to these reasons.
What will be the effect of RBI action on depositors?
The bank will no longer be able to accept deposits or repay deposits. Every depositor will be entitled to receive the deposit insurance claim amount from the Deposit Insurance and Credit Guarantee Corporation (DICGC) up to a financial limit of Rs 5 lakh. According to the data submitted by the bank under the provisions of the Act, 1961, 95.15 percent of the depositors are entitled to get the full amount of their deposits from DICGC, the RBI said.
