On liquidation, every depositor is entitled to repayment of his/her deposits up to a monetary ceiling of Rs 5 lakh only from the Deposit Insurance and Credit Guarantee Corporation (DICGC) as per usual terms and conditions.

Consequent to the cancellation of its licence from close of business on December 7, the bank has been prohibited from conducting the business of 'banking' which includes acceptance of deposits and repayment of deposits with immediate effect.

Giving details, the RBI said the bank was under "all inclusive directions" since November 07, 2017. The Commissioner for Cooperation and Registrar of Cooperative Societies, Maharashtra has also been requested to issue an order for winding up the bank and appoint a liquidator for the bank.

The RBI said it cancelled the licence of the bank as it "does not have adequate capital and earning prospects". As such, it does not comply with the relevant provisions of the Banking Regulation Act, 1949.

"The continuance of the bank is prejudicial to the interests of its depositors," it said, and added the bank with its present financial position would be unable to pay its present depositors in full.

Also, public interest would be adversely affected if the bank is allowed to carry on its banking business any further.
