The Reserve Bank of India has reviewed the financial position of the Mapusa Urban Co-operative Bank said bank and considers it necessary in the public interest to modify the Directions in exercise of powers vested in it.
The RBI vide its Directive dated July 24, 2015 has modified that
A sum not exceeding Rs 50,000/- (Rupees Fifty Thousands only) in every savings bank account or current account or term deposit account or any other deposit account (by whatever name called); may be allowed to be withdrawn by depositor, provided that wherever such depositor is having liability to the bank in any manner, i.e. either as a borrower or surety, including loans against the bank deposits, the amount may be adjusted first to the relevant borrowal account/s.
