The Reserve Bank of India has cancelled the licence of The CKP Co-operative Bank Ltd., Mumbai, amid its weak financial health of the lender. With the suspension, the cooperative bank is now prohibited from acceptance and repayment of any deposits.
The RBI said that the financial position of the bank is “highly adverse” and “unsustainable”, adding there the lender has no concrete revival plan or proposal for amalgamation with another bank. The bank is not meeting the regulatory capital requirements, and is also not capable of paying its present and future depositors, the regulator further revealed.
