Due to the lender’s worsening financial situation, the RBI imposed a number of limitations on Mumbai-based Raigad Sahakari Bank, including a withdrawal cap of Rs 15,000 per customer. The cooperative bank is subject to a number of restrictions, including the inability to issue loans, make any investments, or take new deposits without RBI‘s prior approval.
- The Reserve Bank stated that a depositor may be permitted to withdraw up to Rs 15,000 of their entire balance across all savings bank, current, or other accounts.
- The limitations will be in effect for a full six months.
- The RBI added that it would be incorrect to interpret the directives given to Raigad Sahakari Bank as the revocation of its banking licence.
- Until its financial situation becomes better, the bank will continue to conduct banking business with limits.
- In addition, the Reserve Bank stated that depending on the situation, it might modify the instructions.
