The question is not if interest is paid on security deposit. The points are was follows:

1) can the landlord apply security deposit for "retroactive MCI" that is still pending at DHCR as a PAR?

2) DHCR claims in writing that security deposits are outside its jurisdiction. Is this something new? did DHCR abdicates its responsibilites in this matter? if so, does not this encourage
landlords to keep security deposits, as most recent immigrants are not likely to go to small claim courts to challenge.

SANTA, please address these two issues. thanks.
