Cash Credit

Cash Credit

This account is the primary method in which Banks lend money against the security of mortgage of immovable properties. It runs like a current account except that the money that can be withdrawn from this account is not restricted to the amount deposited in the account. Instead, the account holder is permitted to withdraw a certain sum called "limit" or "credit facility" in excess of the amount deposited in the account. Cash Credits are, in theory, payable on demand.
