Increase DICGC Limit to Rs 6 lakhs to adhere to Budget wef 1-4-19 on limit of TDS on interest 40,000
Cost of living has increased considerably over the years. As interest rates have plummeted sharply over the last 3 years, the common man has to invest more in Bank fixed deposits (FD's) to earn the targeted fixed income to meet his daily expenses. Consequently, the investment amount in Bank FD's has increased considerably over the years. There is an open risk for the depositor as the insurance amount is Rs 100000 only per depositor. This amount needs to be augmented to Rs 600000 per depositor on priority as this will instill confidence in the common man that his hard earned money is safe in the case of an unfortunate event of liquidation of the bank.
