2. In terms of paragraph 4(i) of the ‘Guidelines for Licensing of Payments Banks’ (Licensing Guidelines) dated November 27, 2014, PBs were restricted to hold a maximum balance of ₹1 lakh per individual customer at the end of the day. It was also indicated in the guidelines that after gauging the performance of the PBs, RBI may consider increasing the maximum balance limit.
