RBI UDGAM Portal Revealed: A Hidden Treasure from Forgotten Bank Account
Hey, Have you ever wondered if an old bank account is hiding some forgotten treasure? So, what do you know? The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) just put up a really cool website called UDGAM (Unclaimed Deposits: Gateway to Access Information) to help you find those lost coins!
First of all, let’s talk about unclaimed deposits are those deposits which haven’t been claimed. These are like secret stashes of cash that have been sitting in savings or checking accounts for a whopping 10 years, untouched and unloved. Imagine forgetting about a piggy bank for ten years. That’s what’s happening here.
Now it’s time for the fun part: UDGAM! This website is like a special map that takes you right to those lost treasures. Before UDGAM, it was like trying to find a treasure with no hints. To see if any unclaimed deposits were waiting to be found, you had to go to each bank’s website separately. Think about how tired that must have made you!
But don’t worry, UDGAM is here to help. It’s like an all-in-one place to look for unclaimed deposits. RBI (the cool people at the Reserve Bank of India) saw that this treasure hunt needed a central system, so they made UDGAM.
How to use UDGAM?
Let’s make it easy to understand. UDGAM is like a very smart computer that knows everything there is to know about unclaimed deposits. Just go to the UDGAM website and give it some basic information, like your name or your bank. Then, UDGAM shows you, as if by magic, if you have any hidden coins waiting to be found!
Right now, UDGAM knows that seven banks have deposits that haven’t been claimed. These banks are like the chosen ones, picked out, especially for this treasure hunt. Here is a list of the seven coolest things: State Bank of India, Punjab National Bank, Central Bank of India, Dhanlaxmi Bank Limited, South Indian Bank Limited, DBS Bank India Limited, and Citibank. But don’t worry, soon there will be more banks joining in. You’ll get to see even more by October 15, 2023.
People sometimes forget about their accounts, and they just sit there, lonely and unused. UDGAM helps you find these hidden accounts, which is a little like finding a good amount in the pocket of an old jacket. So, even if you’ve completely forgotten about a bank account, UDGAM will remind you that you have money waiting for you!
