The state government may rethink on its police department accounts with the Axis Bank in view of the Yes Bank imbroglio.

Against the backdrop of the crisis, the has decided to only bank with public sector banks, officials said here on Friday.

Instructions to the effect have been issued by Chief Minister to the concerned departments.

Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar added that the government does not have any accounts with any private sector and only with PSBs.

However, the Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai, certain other civic bodies and government departments are banking with private sector banks, but now these decisions are likely to be reviewed.

In December 2019, Mumbai Mayor Kishori Pednekar had said the civic body would consider shifting some of its accounts from a private sector bank to the safer option of government as a precautionary measure.

Similarly, the state government may rethink on its police department accounts with the Axis Bank in view of the imbroglio.
