Dear Sir/Madam,

 

Relief and Savings bonds-Compensation structure for delay in payment of interest and/or principal

 

Please refer to our circulars RBI/2005/477 and RBI/2011-12/294 dated May 20, 2005 and December 09, 2011 respectively, on the above subject. As per the circular dated December 09, 2011 it was advised that agency banks may compensate an investor in Relief/Savings bonds, for the financial loss due to late receipt/delayed credit of interest warrants/maturity value, at their own savings bank rate for respective amounts (i.e. upto ` 1 lakh and over ` 1 lakh) without any discrimination.

 

2. Under the present scenario of deregulated interest rate on the savings bank account, in order to avoid ambiguity and variation in compensation rates across different agency banks, these instructions have been reviewed. It has now been decided that with effect from the date of this circular, an agency bank shall compensate an investor in Relief/Savings bonds, for the financial loss due to late receipt/delayed credit of interest warrants/maturity value, at a fixed rate of 8% per annum.

 

3. It may be added that the Reserve Bank may review the above compensation rate as and when considered appropriate.

 

4. Please acknowledge receipt.

 

Yours faithfully,

 

(Sangeeta Lalwani)

Deputy General Manager
