I am a professor in an engineering college. I got an Account in SBI, King Kothi branch, Abids, Hyderabad, AP. the timings of this branch are- 10:00 AM to 05:00 PM.but they don't work till 5 instead they shut down the systems by 4.It is very difficult to operate the transactions during the bank timings. As our college is in outskirts we should go out by 7 'O' clock and by the time we reach home it will be around 6 'O' clock. In this case, we can neither deposit the money nor we can operate the locker.therefore I request the concerned authorities to change the branch timings & and make it convenient for the job holders at the earliest.
I totally agree that SBI timings are not costumer friendly. 8 to 8 sounds quite feasible, with two shifts its possible. Maybe it's not the most practical option, but they should think out of the box and come up with new ideas on this front. I hope the senior management is reading this.
sub: Requesting to update the onlinesbi.com website with the timings.
I request you to update the timings of all branches located in India. Because today i.e saturday, i want to deposit the amount but the nearest branch closed at 1:30PM and searched in the websites to know which branch will open in hyderabad after 1:30PM. But no information regarding in the sites.
So, please make the site user friendly.Hope u will make updates.
It becomes very difficult to transact with the current timings of the bank specially for people who work 8am to 8pm.Even saturday is a half day, after 1pm bank doesnot entertain anyone and saturdays are full of people because people who get holidays on saturday rush for thier work only on saturdays.
The behaviour of SBI people is also very rude towards clients.
Further for one thing they ask to contact another person, the other person asks to contact another person and the chain goes on, its really ridiculous to get such kind of service from such reputed bank.
10:00 am to 4:00 pm ... timing for customer transactions i.e. during 10 to 4 o'clock the customer
can visit the bank for any banking work. (total of 6 hrs for customer of which
30 minutes are for recess cum lunch break for the sbi staff)
9:45 am to 5:00 pm ... timing for sbi-clerks. i.e. one hour more the timing above.
NOTE: the one hour i.e. 4:00 to 5:00 is not for the customers. customer hrs
ceases at 4 as given above.
NOTE: this are the timings if the branch starts at 10:00 for the customer. there are other branches which starts at 10:30. so add 30 min. to the above timings.
I AM PANDU
I HAVE ACCOUNT IN SBI, HOW MUCH WE NEED TO KEPT REQUIRED MINIMUM BALANCE.I HAVE MONEY IN MY ACCOUNT 387 RS/- BUT MY FRIEND SEND 2000 RS/- BUT STILL I AM NOT GETTING THAT MONEY WHAT SHOULD I DO PLZ GIVE ME ANY SUGGESTIONS.
My mom deposited money to my account before two months, but i didn't get the amount still, and also there is no proper response from the bank.They couldn't keep up timings, before the actual timing they closing the bank without prior intimation and they are treating us so harsh. .
i went there at 12 in the after after travelling for 20 kms and they tell me the token is over for the days.
public sector in india can never ever improve...
and the bank manager was complacently sitting saying goto the nearest branch., ...
what was the guarantee the token is not over there..
i mean its peak work time 12 in the noon..
the bank branch im talking of is bangalore, marathalli branch.
There are very few (1 or 2) branches which takes a weekday off but operates on weekend. This helps a lot to people, especially in metros. Why these banks cant operate like private sector banks. It will only increase their business & will reduce the fear factor of even thinking before going to these banks.
yesterday 7/6/11 I went to sbi Fort Branch No, 926 Mumbai-1 to deposit cash in this bank at 3.25 p.m for a company having sbi account.One of the staff told bank is closed now. I told him the entrance there is a board showing the timing 4 pm. I told him o, k. then please write the time is upto 3 pm. he argued with me that the timing 4 pm is only for sbi account holders.so I told him then why dont you write there into the bracket?.He then argued ...argued...argued also talked with me loudly(because I dont have any account in SBI ? then one superior came and cooled him down.
My question is in all other banks the time for banking is upto 4 p.m. Then why not the sbi obey the rules of RBI ?
