Restrictions put on Laxmi Coop Bank, Solapur; Rs 1,000 cap on withdrawals

The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) imposed several restrictions on Laxmi Cooperative Bank Ltd, Solapur, including Rs 1,000 cap on withdrawals for customers, due to deterioration in its financial position.

The restrictions imposed under the Banking Regulation Act, 1949, shall remain in force for six months from the close of business on November 12, 2021, and are subject to review, the RBI said in a statement.
As per the directions, the bank shall not, without the prior approval of the RBI, grant or renew any loans and advances, make any investment, incur any liability, and disburse or agree to disburse any payment.

“In particular, a sum not exceeding Rs 1,000 of the total balance across all savings bank or current accounts or any other account of a depositor, may be allowed to be withdrawn,” the RBI said.

It further said the issue of the directions by the RBI should not per se be construed as cancellation of the banking licence.

“The bank will continue to undertake banking business with restrictions till its financial position improves,” the Reserve Bank of India said.
