While encouraging families to incur wedding expenses through cheques or digital means, it has been decided to permit families celebrating weddings to draw up to Rs. 2,50,000/- in cash from their own bank accounts. These accounts have to be necessarily KYC compliant. The amounts can be drawn only by either of the parents or the person getting married. Only one of them will be permitted to draw this amount. This limit of Rs. 2,50,000/- will apply separately to the girl’s family and the boy’s family.

The person drawing such amount has to furnish the PAN details. Further, a self-declaration will have to be submitted by the person to the effect that only one person from his/her family is drawing the amount. It is expected that members of the public will fully cooperate to ensure that the above guidelines are adhered to. Any misuse of this facility will invite appropriate action based on the self-declaration and other details.

    Pl. issue tokens with Sl. No. & Bank Rubber Stamp, to persons coming for conversion of OLD NOTES, as soon as they come to Bank/P.O. This will enable pepole not to stand in the ‘Q’ and come at the appropriate time. Disbursement of cash should be Token No. wise.

    Seperate tokens should be issued for Conversion of Old Notes and that for deposit/ Withdrawal from A/C. Seperate tokens for Sr. Citizens.

    Tokens should be issued only for the value of Cash available at the Bank for disbursement.
