To comply with Rule LR-1.2.13, the initial amount taken as a deposit must be BD 7 million or above (or its equivalent in foreign currency); however, subsequent additions and withdrawals from that deposit account may be for any amount. The initial amount taken as deposit may be split between different types of accounts (e.g. call, 3-month and 6-month accounts) — providing at least BD 7 million is taken from the customer on the same day and the bank's records can demonstrate this. Where subsequent withdrawals lead to a zero balance on an account (or the aggregate of accounts where more than one was originally opened), then a further BD 7 million must be deposited to re-start the 'wholesale' relationship, before additional deposits for smaller amounts may be made.
