A public sector bank in the Bihar capital has kept active for nearly 50 years a savings account of India's first president Rajendra Prasad, an official said Wednesday.
Prasad opened his account in Punjab National Bank's Exhibition Road branch Oct 24, 1962, a few months before he passed away, said the official.
"The bank has given Rajendra Prasad's savings account prime customer status. It is a matter of pride for us," the bank's chief manager S.L. Gupta told IANS.
The balance including interest in account stood at Rs.1,813, Gupta said, adding that till date, no one had come forward to withdraw the money.
"Every six months, an interest is deposited into the account," he said.
The branch has also put on public display of Prasad's account number -- 0380000100030687 -- below his photograph.
Prasad was born Dec 3, 1884, in Zeradei in Bihar's Siwan district and died Feb 28, 1963, in Patna. He was India's first president from 1952 to 1962.
