  • I am anand. I didn’t operate my account last 3 years. My account balance is Nil. When will my savings account close automatically.

    • Hi Ananda Kumar, your account will not be closed automatically by the bank unless you close it.

      But as you told me that you have not used your account from last 3 years, when no transactions take place for a long time those accounts are considered as dormant accounts.

      Dormant accounts are inactive accounts in the bank.

  • I had opened a SB Account with IDBI Bank Ltd. Krishnapur Branch, BD-53,Rabindra Pally, Kolkata- 700101.
    West Bengal. The said account is non-operative for more than a year. Yet every month I get SMS from IDBI Bank to maintain MAB. In order to close the said SB A/c. I personally visited IDBI Bank Krishnapur Branch and handed over unused cheque leaves along with a letter praying for closure of my SB Account to the dealing clerk deputed there. I asked him to give me receipt against closure of bank account. He told that nothing is required. Automatically your account will be closed and inoperative. But every month I receive SMS asking me to maintain MAB etc. which is totally disgusting and not expected from a govt. bank. I have bitter experience of such a stupid bank in India. When there is no transactions for more than one year then why sms is sent to me. The reason is best known to the IDBI Bank authority.

    • Hi Anugrag Singh,
      If you are not in India currently then you can still close your bank account.

      And it can be done by sending a FAX to your IDBI Bank’s Branch.

      All you have to do is contact IDBI Bank Customer care by calling them at 1800 200 1947.

      Ask for the phone number of your branch.

      Call them and tell them that you want to close your bank account and you are not in India currently.

      They will tell you the procedure to close your bank account.

      Ask for the FAX number and FAX your account closing request application letter.

      But please note that not all the branches accept the application form by FAX.

      So you have to call them and ask before you FAX your application.

      Hope this helps you Anugrah.

  • I have an aadhar card. But there the problem of my surname. according to my husband’s surname my aadhar card is like that so i am facing lot of problem to sub-mit my aadhar link to my account & other.

  • Hi, Earlier my salary account was with IDBI (Pune) but a few years back the contract between my organization and IDBI bank expired. Thus, I had to switch my salary account to another bank (Noida) associated with my organization. I even submitted the application about 1 year back to close my account but seems like they didn’t act. I’m not using IDBI bank account, but I keep getting MAB smses I even reloaded my IDBI account with Rs. 5K to maintain the MAB acting upon their SMS, but they deducted the MAB charges out of it bringing the MAB below 5K, so I transferred the balance amount from my IDBI account as I cannot keep on adding money and they keep on deducting the dues in the name of MAB charges. When one is not in position to maintain the minimum account balance, how can banks levy MAB charges – what’s the logic? Please advise I cannot loose my money in the name of maintaining MAB. Better to get the account closed permanently or let the account be dormant and dead sometime later.
