DICGC is a subsidiary of the Reserve Bank of India and it provides insurance cover on bank deposits. So far the rule was that even if the depositors will not get money, even if the insurance bank does not meet many processes. Because of this, they do not get a penny long. But changes in the act will get relief to customers.

Five lakh insurance

DICGC only ensures that after being ruined a bank, its depositors should return the amount of Rs. 5 lakh. First, the sum insured was only Rs 1 lakh, but the Modi government has increased it to 5 lakh last year.

According to the provisions so far, this return of five lakh rupees is done when a bank's license can be canceled and the process of selling its liquidation i.e. asset etc. But now the government has fixed three months limit for all this.
