Customers Panic After RBI Imposes Curbs On Bengaluru Co-Op Bank
With this restriction on withdrawing their own money, people are now worried about the safety of their deposits in the bank. However, bank employees have assured people that their deposits in the bank are safe. Despite this assurance, people are very angry and extremely concerned after the recent PMC Bank scam. In a tweet, Bharatiya Janata Party Member of Parliament from Bengaluru Tejasvi Surya assured all worried depositors of the bank to not panic. He said that Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman has been apprised of the matter and she has assured that the government will protect the interests of depositors.
Most of the customers of this bank are elderly, who were seen queuing up to get information about their accounts after the news of RBI restrictions on the bank came in. People are saying that they had deposited their entire savings in the bank and were using the interest accrued on that amount towards their household expenditure.
I want to assure all depositors of Sri Guru Raghavendra Co-operative Bank to not panic.— Tejasvi Surya (@Tejasvi_Surya) January 13, 2020
