The deposit insurance premium received by DICGC grew 9.7 per cent (year-on-year) to Rs 21,381 crore during 2022-23. Of this, the share of the commercial banks was 94 per cent. The Deposit Insurance Fund with DICGC rose 15.5 per cent year-on-year during 2022-23 to reach Rs 1.70 trillion on March 31, 2023.
