The RBI has restricted withdrawals at Rs 25,000 under the moratorium. Depositors with more than one account will be allowed to withdraw only Rs 25,000 from all their accounts. The step was taken by the government, on the advice of the Reserve Bank, in view of the declining financial health of the private sector lender.
T N Manoharan, former non-executive chairman of Canara Bank, was appointed as the administrator of the bank. Besides, the central bank has also placed in public domain a draft scheme of amalgamation of Lakshmi Vilas Bank with DBS Bank.
