(a) Net balance in inter-branch account, when in credit, is to be shown

outstanding for more than five years in inter-branch account as
'Blocked Account' and show it under 'Others' under 'Other Liabilities
and Provisions'. Thereafter, while arriving at net amount of inter-
branch transactions for inclusion under 'Other Liabilities and
Provisions' if in credit, or 'Other Assets' if in debit, the aggregate
amount of 'Blocked Account' should be excluded and only the
amount representing the remaining credit entries should be netted
against debit entries. Thus, the balance in the 'Blocked Account' will
be reckoned for the purpose of maintenance of CRR and SLR,
even though the net of inter-branch entries is a debit balance.

(ii) Margin Money on Bills Discounted / Purchased

The bank should follow uniform procedure in treating margin money on bills
purchased/discounted as outside liabilities and should include it in other
