DHFL recently informed its distributors that it would stop fresh public deposits and renewals of the existing deposits. Furthermore, the company has also halted pre-mature withdrawals of existing deposits to saying it would help reorganise its liability management.

All this is in the wake of the ratings downgrade it has received in the recent past with CARE Ratings’ downgrade being the latest nail in the coffin.

Coming to your question, while it can’t be said for sure, but DHFL has said that it will honour its pre-mature deposit withdrawal requests in case of a medical or financial emergency, subject to fulfillment of appropriate documentation.
