Now the question arises what actually should be done ??

SBI Transaction Rules
SBI Transaction Rules








To withdraw your own money you have to pay a service charge to the Bank. You pay service tax on the service charge to the government. Then why do we plan to put in a bank account? If it looks like a step towards a digital India then we should not forget that maximum SBI user or better say maximum users in India are ignorant of the technology i.e they lack mobile banking, online transnational knowledge, digital payment usage security measures.

Giants Like SBI should have planned some mass movement in terms of digitization in the rural areas by giving them training. They should first educate common people about the usage of digital methods. But if you read their new clauses you will realize that the steps are actually aimed to hold money in the bank and not digitization.

Insensitive Step by SBI

Common people of country are not ready for these new changes. By introducing them,these banks have shown their Insensitivity towards their customers .

In order to save ourselves from the  transaction fees, we can proceed towards training and learning the usage of mobile banking , online transaction and paying utilities via Credit/Debit card as much as possible .
