He said the bank has the arrangement of Rs 65 crore and is falling short of more than Rs 20 crore to pay to the account holders.

The RBI had restricted transition by the bank in 2011 after several financial irregularities came to light and gave it time for recovery of loans.

Sharma informed that a liquidator will be appointed by the Registrar of Cooperatives department, state government for settlement with the depositors.

Meanwhile, Chief Executive Officer of Rajasthan Urban Cooperative Banks Federation Ltd, ML Sharma said RBI had already restricted transaction by the Ajmer Urban Cooperative Bank.

He said other urban cooperative banks are working as usual.
