Disposal of profit
36. After making provision for bad and doubtful debits, depreciation of assets and any other matters which are usually provided for by bankers, the Corporation may, out of its net annual profit, establish a Reserve Fund and declare a dividend:
Provided that as long as the Reserve Fund remains less than the paid-up share capital of the Corporation and as long as any sums paid by the Government under any guarantee given in pursuance of section 5 or under any guarantee in pursuance of sub-section (2) of section 22 are not fully repaid to the Government by the Corporation, the rate of such dividend shall not exceed the rate guaranteed by the Government under section 5 :
Provided further that no such dividend shall exceed the rate of five per centum per annum, and if in respect of any financial year after the Reserve Fund has become equal to the share capital of the Corporation, there remains after declaring a dividend at the aforesaid rate any surplus, such surplus shall be paid to the Government.
