What will happen if the amount deposited in the bank is more than five lakh
A security guarantee of Rs 5 lakh on bank deposits means that no matter how much money you deposit in a bank if the bank defaults or sinks, you will get back only Rs 5 lakh. If you have accounts in many branches of the same bank and the amount deposited in them is more than five lakhs, even then only five lakh rupees will be returned. That means only your deposits up to Rs 5 lakh will be insured.


DICGC is responsible for the payment
