Use of view only transaction right

You may request the bank to change the transaction right only. Transaction right is the right given to the Internet banking user to access the savings Bank or current account. 

Transaction right are of 3 types. These are

  • View right : You may do only enquiry of your account. It means you can only see the transaction and can not do actual fund transfer and other financial transactions which include debit of your account. 
  • Limited transaction right : Your transaction right will limited to certain amount only. 
  • Via ew and transaction right : Where you get the full potential of internet banking.
