Lakshmi Vilas Bank moratorium: Here is how customers are reacting

Customers of the bank took their venting their frustrations on social media platforms

November 18, 2020 / 09:12 PM IST

As news broke that the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has placed Lakshmi Vilas Bank (LVB) under moratorium till December 16, customers of the bank took their venting to social media platforms.

The move was announced through an order issued by the Ministry of Finance. The bank will not be allowed to make payments exceeding Rs 25,000 to any creditors without prior approval from the RBI.

LVB stock was locked in 20 percent lower circuit in the early trade on November 18.

The RBI, in consultation with the Central government, has superseded the board of directors of LVB for a period of 30 days owing to a serious deterioration in the financial position of the bank. TN Manoharan, former non-executive chairman of Canara Bank has been appointed as the administrator.
