In pursuance of the Section 35 of the Maldives Bank Act (2010), if an account holder has not conducted a transaction from the account or written correspondence with the bank for the last five (5) years, such accounts are required to be classified as "Dormant".
We have sent letters to all our customers whose accounts stand classified as "Dormant" as per the above law. If these accounts are not reactivated, the Maldives Banking Act require the Bank to publish the name of such account holders in a local newspaper and the Government Gazette. If Bank does not receive any response and funds are not claimed by the dormant account holders within sixty (60) days of the publication, Bank is under obligation to transfer such funds to Maldives Monetary Authority (MMA).
In view of above, kindly reactivate your account by making a deposit or withdrawal from the account and submit the "Customer Information Update Form" to the nearest branch of MIB. If no response is received in writing before 24th May 2017, please be informed that the accounts will be closed and funds in the accounts will be transferred to Maldives Monetary Authority. After the transfer, you may claim these funds from MMA by submitting "Dormant Account Claim Form" to the nearest branch of Maldives Islamic Bank.
We express our gratitude for giving us an opportunity to serve you and assuring our best services always.
