Now, let’s get into the depth of this. This phrase represents the confidence that the defaulter carries in the sense that he is pretty sure of escaping after committing the mistake. The defaulter is confident because he knows that his dad is an influential person and therefore, the police would not be able to take any action against him.

Fixed Deposits: All you need to know

Once upon a time, there was an old lady who believed in the importance of saving money. She knew how useful savings are and how a certain preserved amount for the future purpose could come to her aid, whenever she would need it the most.

Lakshmi Vilas Bank Merger: Factual and Informational Details

It looks like the Government of India is now playing smart rather than being a ‘Daanveer’ (over merciful donator). Just in case you are not aware of ‘Daanveer’, we’ll tell you. This name (or rather title) was conferred to a person in a community or village who always donated whenever someone went to him and pleaded for money or help. Basically, whoever went to ‘Daanveer’ never returned empty-handed. This is because that person considered this as his moral responsibility to donate money and help anyone who approached him. But, this also resulted in many people taking undue advantage of his mercy.
