RBI Udgam Portal: Registration, login link and how you can find your unclaimed deposits in SBI, PNB, more banks
The RBI said that through the new portal, users will be able to identify their unclaimed deposits or accounts and then either claim the deposit amount or make their deposit accounts operative again.
The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has launched a centralised web portal called UDGAM (Unclaimed Deposits – Gateway to Access Information) which allows people to search for their unclaimed deposits across multiple banks. The RBI said that through the new portal, users will be able to identify their unclaimed deposits or accounts and then either claim the deposit amount or make their deposit accounts operative again. According to the central bank, an increasing trend has been observed in the amount of unclaimed deposits and the RBI has been undertaking several campaigns to raise awareness about it.
What are unclaimed deposits?
RBI describes unclaimed deposits as “balances in savings/current accounts which are not operated for 10 years, or term deposits not claimed within 10 years from date of maturity”. These unclaimed deposits are transferred by the respective banks to the Depositor Education and Awareness (DEA) fund, which is maintained by RBI. People can still claim their deposits from the banks along with the interest.
