What lies ahead for investors?
Should the depositors be worried about this? Shah said that the depositors need not worry and the money of 99.5 per cent depositors is safe. The RBI has also said that the money of 99.5 per cent depositors is insured.
The question however arises if the depositors of the other banks should also worry. In 2019, PMC bank issue cropped up. In 2020, Yes Bank was in the news followed by a moratorium on Laxmi Vilas Bank.
RBI took proactive measures in case of Yes Bank and Laxmi Vilas Bank. The banks were restructured and the money of the depositors was kept safe. There was no loss to the depositors.
In the meanwhile, the Government has also increased insurance cover of Rs 1 lakh earlier to Rs 5 lakh now.
There was also a big announcement made in the Union Budget to protect the interests of the depositors. Under the Deposit Insurance and Credit Guarantee Corporation (DICGC) rules, the depositors will be able to withdraw money even during the time of moratorium. The FM has announced amendment in this rule and once this rule is amended, the depositors will be able to withdraw up to Rs 5 lakhs even if the bank goes into a moratorium.
This will put more trust for the depositors on the banking system.
