What is MAB and how is it calculated?


MAB or Monthly Average Balance is the average of day end balances in the account for all the days in a month.Given below is an example of how MAB is calculated:

 

A sample bank statement of March 2013:

 

DateTransactionsDebit AmountCredit AmountBalance at the end of day
1-Mar-2013 A - 10,00,000 10,00,000
10-Mar- 2013 B 1,00,000 - 9,00,000
20- Mar-2013 C 2,00,000 3,00,000 10,00,000
31-Mar-2013 D 5,00,000 - 5,00,000
MAB       7,74,193

 

MAB Calculation:

Total Balance in March 2013
= (10,00,000 * 9 days) + (9,00,000 * 10 days) + (10,00,000 * 11 days) + (5,00,000 * 1 day)
= 24,000,000 (2.4 Cr)

 

Total No. of days in the month = 31

 

Monthly Average Balance (MAB) of March 2013
= 24,000,000/ 31
= Rs. 7,74,193
