Reserve Bank ducks Vasantdada Nagari Sahakari Bank license

The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has canceled the license of Osmanabad, Maharashtra based Vasantdada Nagari Sahakari Bank Limited.

Reserve Bank in its statement said, “The bank has failed to comply with the requirements and continuance of bank is prejudicial to the interest of its depositors.”

“The bank, with its present financial position, would be unable to pay its present depositors in full and it is necessary for public interest and for preventing the affairs of the bank being conducted in a manner detrimental to the interests of its depositors to wind up the affairs of the bank,” RBI said.
