10 lakh rupees reached the account of 15 employees of the hospital due to the mistake of SBI employee, know what happened then…
Ahmedabad: An employee of SBI Bank recently committed a clerical error which led to a major blunder. According to reports, funds were misused for the Dalit Bandhu Scheme, a flagship program of the Telangana government, due to the misconduct of the employees. The objective of this special scheme is to provide one-time capital assistance of Rs.10 lakh per scheduled caste family. As per an English newspaper report, this scheme provides 100 percent subsidy to the scheduled caste families to establish a good source of income.
Due to this mistake, Rs 1.50 crore was suddenly transferred in the accounts of 15 employees of Lotus Hospital. 10 lakh was deposited in the account of each employee. Since then a case has been registered under ‘Accidental Beneficiary’. As soon as the officials of SBI Rangareddy District Collectorate branch came to know about the mistake, they asked the hospital staff to transfer the money back. Media reports claimed that 14 out of 15 employees returned the money, but one person named Mahesh could not return the money as it was not available over the phone.
Surprisingly, Mahesh admitted that Prime Minister Narendra Modi had deposited Rs 10 lakh in his bank account and withdrew some amount to repay his loan. According to the report, Mahesh did not return the money despite repeated requests. Thereafter, a bank official lodged a complaint against him. Despite the uproar, no complaint was lodged by the bank employee for his mistake.
As of now, bank officials have managed to recover Rs 6.70 lakh out of Rs 10 lakh transferred to Mahesh’s account. He is yet to pay the remaining Rs 3.30 lakh to SBI.
