In Banking disputes in which banks have acted contrary to the guidelines, circulars, or notifications of BB, the decision has favored the consumer. In one instance, the respondent had accumulated deposits at a bank that subsequently merged with the petitioner bank. However, upon the maturity of the deposits, the petitioner bank refused to pay interest to the respondent because the deposited amount had not been renewed within the BB-mandated time frame.
The National Commission was of the opinion that banks must notify depositors of any policy decision that could deny or limit the interest that is to be paid on deposits. Thus, it was determined that the consumer (depositor) would be entitled to interest and compensation from the bank if the bank only returned the principal amount to the depositor without interest.
In numerous other decisions, courts have demonstrated a propensity to favor individual consumers when granting relief. According to the Supreme Court, a bank may be held liable for an unauthorized withdrawal and ordered to reimburse the consumer with interest and costs.
