Resignations of chairpersons accepted

BHOPAL: The State government finally handed over the control of 27 district central cooperative banks across the State to cooperative officials in the place of elected board on Wednesday. Board chairmen in 27 banks, who are BJP leaders, had submitted their resignations acting on party directives.

But the decision to accept the resignations was in a limbo as RBI guidelines were coming in the way. Cooperatives officials said these resignations were sent to RBI for its approval and deputing receivers in the banks for fresh election. The RBI did not reply in 30 days period – the limit that gives free hand to cooperative officials to take decision on resignation.

Deputy registrars ( cooperatives) were given the charge of DCC Bank in Bhopal, Indore and Gwalior. At other places, deputy registrar and assistant registrars were handed over the charge.

In Jabalpur and Sagar, district collectors are already holding the charge in DCC Bank there. Receivers were appointed in all 27 banks, out of 38. Board is still in existence in DCC Bank of Panna and Bhind because of court stay.
