Deposits in Banks have crossed Rs.4 lakh cr

Total deposit mobilisation by banks crossed Rs.4 lakh crore on November 14, according to the Indian Banks' Association. The amount is expected to have since gone up as State Bank of India, the country's largest lender, has seen “demonetisation deposits“ grow from Rs.1.04 lakh crore on November 14 to Rs.1.34 lakh crore at 4pm on November 18.
According to SBI chairman Arundhati Bhattacharya, a large part of the deposits would be withdrawn as depositors get back to spending. But 10-15% of the money that citizens have been forced to deposit in banks should stay back, she said.
