Arresting the trend of withdrawals that began in December, the net balance in Jan Dhan accounts swelled by Rs 1,000 crore to Rs 63,971.38 crore during the week ended April 5. The net balance in the accounts opened under the Pradhan Mantri Jan Dhan Yojana (PMJDY) was Rs 62,972.42 crore on March 29, as per the Finance Ministry's data.

Total deposits in these accounts had increased to a record high of Rs 74,610 crore on December 7 and thereafter, started declining gradually. As per the PMJDY data for April 5, it is for the first time the net balance in the accounts has shown an increase on a weekly basis.

PMJDY was launched in August 2014 to increase banking penetration and promote financial inclusion in the country. Meanwhile, the number of Jan Dhan accounts have increased to 28.23 crore of which 18.50 crore have been seeded with Aadhaar.

The deposits in the accounts had surged following demonetisation of old Rs 500/1000 notes in November last year.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)
Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)You feel a bit bored with your circumstances. You will be jolted out of your complacence with news that you may have to do something which is not convenient right now. You should not take changes around you personally. Do not jump to any conclusions but wait for an explanation. Money matters are cause for differences with your mate which disturb harmony at home. Interfering relatives will add to your woes.
