Jan Dhan Yojana: Here’s a good news for those holding Jan Dhan accounts. PM Narendra Modi-led Union government has now raised the over draft limit from Rs 5000 to Rs 10,000. That mean, a Jan Dhan account holder can withdraw Rs 10,000 from his account anytime in case of need and won’t have to pay any penalty. Moreover, there is no condition for making an over draft up to Rs 2000. The age limit for making an over draft has also been increased from 18-60 years to 18-65 years. All these decisions were taken by PM Modi-led Union Cabinet on Wednesday.
The latest Cabinet decisions will benefit as as many as 32.41 crore Jan Dhan account holders. These accounts currently have over Rs 81,200 crore of deposit balance, according to official data.
