Reserve Bank of India Cancelled Licenses of Multiple Co-operative Banks in Latest Financial Year


Reserve Bank of India Cancelled Licenses

In the financial year that concluded on March 31, the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has canceled the licenses of numerous co-operative banks, rendering it crucial for account holders to stay informed about this significant development. These banks have faced severe repercussions from the RBI, including license cancellations and hefty fines imposed on certain institutions. Notably, co-operative banks have borne the brunt of the RBI's actions.


RBI Imposes 114 Penalties:

During the financial year 2022-23, which ended on March 31, 2023, the licenses of eight co-operative banks were recently revoked. The Reserve Bank has issued penalties to banks more than 100 times for non-compliance with regulations. Co-operative banks have played a pivotal role in expanding banking services in rural areas. However, due to the emergence of irregularities within these banks, the RBI has taken drastic measures.


Allegations of Negligence:

It is essential to note that co-operative banks face challenges such as dual regulation, weak finances, and interference from local leaders. The Reserve Bank has initiated a crackdown on co-operative banks that disregard regulations. Over the past year, permits for eight banks have been canceled. Let us delve into the list of banks affected by the RBI's license cancellations.


Licenses Cancelled for the Following 8 Banks:

1. Mudhol Co-operative Bank

2. Milath Co-operative Bank

3. Shri Anand Co-operative Bank

4. Rupee Co-operative Bank

5. Deccan Urban Co-operative Bank

6. Lakshmi Co-operative Bank

7. Sewa Vikas Co-Operative Bank

8. Babaji Date Mahila Urban Bank


The licenses of these banks were revoked by the RBI due to reasons such as insufficient capital, non-compliance with banking regulations, and lack of future earning potential. The RBI has been closely monitoring the co-operative banking sector for several years. In the years 2021-22, 12 co-operative bank licenses were canceled, followed by three cancellations in 2020-21 and two cancellations in 2019-20.
