State Bank Of India [SBI] — Savings account closure charges

 Sowmya Ramkrishnan on Apr 18, 2017
I closed our savings account with one of the SBI branches in Chennai, the account of which my wife was holding for over 40 years individually and jointly for around 25 years.

To our shock, about 25% of the balance in the account was recovered as account closure charges.

On enquiry, I was told that they have done according to the latest service charges applicable with effect from 01/04 /2017. As a pensioner, this amount of recovery of around Rs. 576/-is really a very high and I request the bank people to reverse the same at the earliest.

Tamil launguage has been removed from All tamilnadu SBI ATM's. Due to this many of my village people suffering to withdraw cash from the ATM.
Please don't push HINDI to the people, and respect Tamilnadu people feelings.
And Add Tamil language in All ATM's.

It is like a daylight robbery that loss making banks try to squeeze the customer by way of service charges when crores of their money is locked up as NPA.The big industrial houses simply refuse to pay loan or even interest but pay donation to political parties and banks will be orally instructed not to take action to recover dues.This loss is made up by more and more service charges. The govt also turns a blind eye.
sbi have a hidden closing charge which they do not tell to there customer. if we know n ask at when our account is close at that time only they say that might be there is a charge on it. I request the sbi to revised it n tell all their manager to tell all the customers who want to close their account before.
maine meri putra vadhu and putra ka joint account is liye bandh kiya ki vaha service charge ke nam per lootam patti chalu ho gayi hai, aur yah lootam patti cloging ke time bhi hui S.B.I. ne account close ka bhi R/s 575/- kat liya lagta hai ki bank kangal ho gai hai tabhi es tarah ki loot kar rahi hai.
As per my knowledge and mentioned in schedule of charges of SBI bank, bank can charged closure of account, if account closed in 14 days of account opening. In short if your account is old more then 14 days bank can’t charges any amount for account closing.Please protest for these illegal charges.
Note : please refer schedule of charges (effective from[protected] on SBI'S web site.

Please ignore my post. SBI can recover charges for account closing.
SBI has to reverse the rules on account closing charges. Ridiculous to charge ₹575 + service charges and cess. They made loans to various businesses and industry who were their buddies without proper security. Now that those loans have gone bad instead of recovering it from corporate borrowers. They are being imposed on Savings Bank account holders which is immortal. I wonder why RBI is silent on this. They must be hand in glove with them.
