Russian banks may obtain the right to write off funds from accounts, the data on the owners of which has not been updated for more than a year. It is reported by Izvestia. The initiative was initiated by "Absolut Bank".
According to the idea, the money will be debited if the account owner changed the identification data, but did not notify the credit company and did not contact the bank for a year. According to the director of the financial monitoring department of Absolut Bank Alexander Polyakov, in such cases the banks deny themselves the receipt of the money owed to them.
Proposals for amendments are being prepared within the framework of the "regulatory guillotine" of the Central Bank. The time period of one year was not chosen by chance, since according to Russian legislation, banks are required to update customer data at least once a year.
Earlier, Life reported that Russian President Vladimir Putin instructed the government, together with the Central Bank of the Russian Federation, to consider the possibility of taking additional measures to support citizens who have lost their deposits in banks.
