How to close Punjab National Bank account?
To close your PNB savings or current account, please follow the given steps:
- Go to your nearest PNB branch and ask for an account closure form.
- Fill up the account closure form.
- That will include details like account number, account holder’s name, customer ID, mobile number, reason for closing account, how you want to receive the balance amount, and signature.
- You can choose to receive the balance amount in either of these ways – cash, cheque, demand draft, fund transfer to another PNB account, or fund transfer to an account in another bank.
- Submit the duly filled account closure form at the PNB home branch.
- Along with the form, you have to submit the passbook, cheque book, and debit card of the account.
- You also have to submit a copy of your ID and address proof.
- After the bank processes the application, you will receive the balance amount in whichever way you have selected.

- If your account balance is less than the minimum balance requirement, but above zero, you will get the amount.
- However, if your account balance is in negative, you have to pay the non-maintenance fine.
- If you have availed any PNB facility linked to that PNB account, you have to close it first before closing the account.
