While appreciating the study, the study is not comprehensive as it involves several angles like segment wise (deposits/advances/others)

1) Insiders

2)Clients

3)Third parties.

and then through system lapses, negligence or through active participation of employees.

 

The fact is that Bank is more safer because, if a fraud is established, the victim can get the entire amount defrauded from Bank, and Banks in turn can get the insurance if there is no malafide action on part of their officials.

In such a big scale activity, amount in terms of percentage of total volume of transactions has to be arrived, and unless that percentage is given the survey is not comprehensive and may...even misleading public and encouraging a run on the bank, which is not proper.

      The appellant had sought certain information, which was largely furnished to him.
      The CPIO however denied the information relating to the details of loan accounts of another person and other documents submitted by him. The CPIO contented that the information sought is related to personal information, which is exempted u/s 8(1)(j) of the Act. The appellate authority upheld the decision of the CPIO.
      There is no denial of information to the appellant. The Banks are expected to maintain confidentiality of the accounts of its customers and that the documents submitted by its customers do not fall under public domain. Hence, exempted u/s 8(1)(j) of the Act.
      The appeal is accordingly disposed of.
