In a rather bold proposal, the Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar suggested that disclosure of valuable assets kept in lockers be made mandatory.
He drew the attention of the union government to the issue of liability for the loss of valuable items deposited in the bank lockers.
The Chief Minister said that the banks can easily buy a group insurance policy for the hirers of lockers.
The Haryana CM wrote a letter to Union Finance Minister Piyush Goyal.
He also added that this step will also help the Government of India’s drive to curb black money and promoting transparency in financial transactions.>
