Unclaimed Deposits: RBI Asks Banks To Remit Unclaimed Deposits to DEAF by 30th June

The Reserve Bank of India has asked banks to remit deposits classified as unclaimed to the depositor education and awareness fund (DEAF) by 30 June 2014. Banks should calculate the cumulative balances in all accounts with unclaimed deposits, along with interest accrued till 23 May 2014 and transfer them to the newly created fund, RBI said in a communication to bank chiefs.

The Fund will be created by taking over inoperative deposit accounts which have not been claimed or operated for a period of 10 years or more or any deposit or any amount remaining unclaimed for more than 10 years within a period of three months from the expiry of the period of 10 years. The Fund shall be utilised for promotion of depositors’ interest. The depositor would, however, be entitled to claim from the bank his deposit or operate his account after the expiry of 10 years, even after the unclaimed deposit funds have been transferred to the Fund. The bank would be liable to pay the deposit amount to the depositor and claim refund from the Fund.
