      No, it wont be a problem. They will keep charging Rs. 118 every month as account non maintenance fee and will send you message about it. The bank officials might even call you to visit the branch. One day the account will become dormant and you won’t be able to use the account even if you want to.

    Closed my account after 10 years even than they debited 575 Rs.They also charged for debit card which were detective and I was unable to use.
    I was also informed to your Annapurna,Indore staff but they did not do any thing.Hence I closed the account #53006504714 as such request to refund the charges.
    The staff is not co operative to customer.

      Depending on the account, you will have to pay the charges. Please refer to the charges list given above.

      If you do not have the account active for over 7 years, the account will become dormant. It ceases to be active and you need not close it. It is as good as being closed.

    I had a joint saving account in one of the branch of sbi in Mathura. For closing that accounti n June 2017 they charged 5575 Rs. Is that justified. No clarification was given for deducting this much account.

      This is totally wrong. You should call toll free number of SBI: SBI’s 24X7 helpline number i.e. 1800 11 2211 (toll-free), 1800 425 3800 (toll-free) or 080-26599990

      June 27, 2017 10:06 pm

      SBBJ converted to SBI account. So now you will have 2 accounts in SBI. If you close any account, they will charge you. Sad truth. Better not close the account and keep the balance 0.

      For closing SBI Jan Dhan account there are no charges. Please contact to bank if they changed anything recently.

    H,i I have join account with my mother in state bank of India, Hyderabad since 6 years. Now i want to close that account pls let me know the procedure, required documents and closure fees. My mother stays in Delhi so is it mandatory for my mother to come to Hyderabad to close the account or I am sufficient.

      You can talk to the manager. You will require the signature of your mother for sure to close the SBI account. Rest depends on the bank.

    My account was with sbh. But now sbh is converted to sbi n I have saving account 3 yrs old and I want to close the account .So account closing charges are applicable or not? And if yes what are the charges?

    • Nidhi

      July 19, 2017 10:08 pm

      Yes, closing charges are applicable as mentioned above. Best thing to do is, make account balance 0 and leave the account.

      Even corporation bank, HDFC bank doesn’t charge, but since SBI started charging money, other banks will soon start to charge again.

      No, just withdraw all amount and leave it as it is. If you close it, you will have to pay closing charges.

      simply transfer the amount in to another account maintain zero balance
      if you are going to the bank you have to wait for one hour . They can deduct more than 1500 hundred rupees.
      Through online banking transfer amount
      if you are going to bank to close the account the bank staff show you stars
      at day time by deducting the amount in the form of charges

    Normally, one is given a loyality bonus for being with the bank. Things are different here.
    2. Was not SBI required to notify this to their customers at least by e mail?
    3. What, if the customer withdraws all amount in the account, leaving only Rs. 10/- and never close the account.
    4. Are these new charges explicitly displayed, with a special signs in every branch?. If not, how can the SBI levy these charges?
    5. Only one year back, people were having zero balance accounts, now all these undesirable charges.
    6. Expect a reply, to enable shift accounts en block. We as a family have 11 accounts.
    7. The point was raised with Customer care/GM, but no reply.
