  • Dear Sir,
    Kindly clarify whether a Public Trust registered under Indian Trust Act 1882,can accept deposits from trustees as well as from Public by paying an Interest of 12% per annum? The Trust has accepted deposits worth Rs. 20/-Crores till 31/03/2015.
    My father has deposited Rs.2/- Lakh in that Trust. He is not a member of that Trust.Now the Trust is not paying Interest and not returning the amount.

    Please advice whether the deposit is safe and what my father should do to get the amount back?
