Text of Letter addressed by IBA to all Banks:
NO.RB/PMSBY/I092
July 20, 2015
         Indian  Banks’ Association
Chief Executives of all Member Banks
Dear Sirs/Madam,
Pradhan Mantri Sneh Bandhan Scheme – An insurance focused Deposit Scheme
Please find enclosed a Scheme called Pradhan Mantri Sneh Bandhan Scheme received from the Department of Financial Services to be launched  with effect from 1st August 2015.   This gift product  is designed  keeping  in view the  ensuing  Raksha  Bandhan  festival  in mind. However, the product is relevant for other festivals, social occasions and family celebrations also.   Essentially the  gifter buys the  gift instrument  (typically a bankers’  cheque or Gift Card), and gives to a sister or a relative as a gift on the given occasion. The giftee presents the instrument to the bank   to be deposited in her existing account or a new account to be opened.  The bank can open a Zero balance BSBDA account, if need be.  The three variations of the gift instrument are as under:
1.  Instrument for Rs. 201.  This will facilitate premium payment for Pradhan Mantri Suraksha Bima Yojana over a period of several years.
2.   Instrument for Rs.351.  This will facilitate one year premium payment for Pradhan Mantri Suraksha Bima Yojana  and Pradhan Mantri Jeevan Jyoti Bima Yojana.
3.  Instrument for Rs.5001.  This will facilitate premium payment for both PMJJBY and PMSBY over a period of several years.
It is envisaged that  in respect of  product 1 and 3 above,  the interest  on fixed deposit created will   meet premium payment  of the insurance product(s).   In the illustration given in the Scheme, it is envisaged that the premium for initial  2 years will be retained in the savings account and the  balance  amount  kept  in  fixed deposit  for 5 to  10 years..    Banks  could however, examine alternate approaches to optimize the process and to ensure availability of balance in the account  for meeting premium payment every year on the  designated date. (example: after deducting  the  1st  year premium,  the balance  could be kept  in short term deposit  maturing  on  31st   May  2016.    On  that  day,  after  retaining  amount  required  for premium payment on  1st  June 2016 the remaining amount could be placed in longer term deposits  with annual interest getting credited to the savings  account on 31st May every year which will facilitate premium payment on 1st June).
Banks may ensure the giftee is eligible for enrolment in the insurance schemes concerned and necessary enrolment forms are got filled up.  In the event, the giftee is already covered for the current year under the said insurance schemes,   the amount may be utilized  for premium payment in subsequent years. This is for your information and necessary action.
