Your bank deposits have insurance just up to Rs 1 lakh

Tuesday, December 3, 2019 • Tamil Comments

If you own Rs 10 lakh as deposits in a bank and the bank fails, you will get Rs 1 lakh only as recovery.  Not every single rupee you own as deposits will be returned.  This has been confirmed by Deposit Insurance and Credit Guarantee Corporation (DICGC), a subsidiary of the Reserve Bank of India.

This has always been the case for several years.  And it has been reaffirmed by an RTI reply.

The Rs 1 lakh ceiling applies to savings, fixed, current and recurring accounts put together, not separately.
