Recently Country’s largest bank, State Bank of India introduced the account transfer option on its online platform.
It greatly adds up to customer convenience. Earlier just to get a savings account transferred to another branch, you would have to visit the home branch and follow certain paperwork.
The introduction of this facility really makes a difference. Changing a resident is a common thing among office goer who has frequent departmental transfer policy. Sometimes, if we do not plan properly might leave behind our bank account.
When you have shifted to a far-flung area, it becomes a real issue. The question is, just to get your account transferred to your desired branch will you book a flight ticket?
Considering the inconveniences people are facing, this add-on facility provided by SBI is just great.
One can use web-based online banking or a mobile application-based (YONO and its lite version) to get the account transferred to the desired branch.
All you have to do is log on to your online banking and do it at your ease. It’s available 24/7. One can transfer savings account once in 3 months.
Accounts such as joint accounts, minor accounts, and non-personal accounts are excluded. Only those accounts which have a single mode of operation where KYC is updated as per RBI norms are eligible.
