Deposits in state, central, and primary cooperative banks that operate in states and union territories are similarly protected "PMO stated.

"Bank deposit insurance cover was increased from Rs 1 lakh to Rs 5 lakh in a ground-breaking change," it stated. With deposit insurance coverage of Rs 5 lakh per depositor per bank, fully covered accounts accounted for 98.1 percent of total accounts at the end of the previous financial year, compared to a worldwide average of 80%.
