Big Relief for PMC Bank Customers! RBI raises withdrawal limit to Rs 10,000; MD George Thomas sacked
In a bid to provide relief to around 60 per cent of the PMC Bank, the RBI has raised the withdrawal limit of the bank customers from Rs 1,000 in next six months to Rs 10,000.
In a bid to provide relief to around 60 per cent of the 7 lakh customers of the Punjab and Maharashtra Co-operative (PMC) Bank, the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has raised the withdrawal limit of the bank customers from Rs 1,000 in next six months to Rs 10,000. In another move, the apex bank of India decided to sack the Managing Director of PMC Bank George Thomas as well.
As per Zee Business TV sources at the PMC Bank, the RBI move will aide around 60 per cent of its net customers as they are small and marginalised investors. However, the move is still not enough as the people will be able to withdraw Rs 10,000 in six months. The PMC Bank has near 7 lakh customer base and the RBI's decision to bar the bank from any transaction for next six months came as a shocker to them.
