Best answer
Correct Answer - Option 1 : Rs. 1 lakh

The correct answer is Rs. 1 lakh.

  • In the budget of FY 2020, Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman has announced to increase the bank deposit insurance in scheduled commercial banks from Rs. 1 lakh to Rs 5 lakh per depositor.

  • This has been done to improve the security of public funds.
  • This means that depositors will get back rupees 5 lakh maximum if the bank closes down.
  • This is the first time in 27 years that this limit has been revised.

  • This came into consideration after Punjab and Maharashtra Co-operative Bank (PMC Bank) whose headquarters is in Mumbai came under the scrutiny of RBI.
  • The last time this revision was made in 1993 to Rupees 100000.
