State Bank (Q,N,C,F)* of India (SBI) has substantially reduced charges for non-maintenance of Average Monthly Balance (AMB) in savings accounts. The revised charges will be effective from April 01, 2018. This step is taken keeping in view the feedback from various stakeholders.

The charges for non-maintenance of AMB for customers in Metro and Urban centres have been reduced from a maximum of Rs. 50/- p.m plus GST to Rs. 15/- p.m. plus GST.  Similarly for Semi-Urban and Rural centres the charges have been reduced from Rs. 40/- p.m plus GST to Rs. 12/- and Rs. 10/- p.m. plus GST respectively. (Table enclosed below)

P. K. Gupta, MD, Retail & Digital Banking, SBI said, ''We have reduced these charges taking into account the feedbacks and sentiments of our customers. Bank has always focused on keeping the interests of its customers first and this is one of our many efforts towards fulfilling customer expectations. Bank also offers its customers to shift from regular savings bank account to BSBD account on which no charges are levied.''   

The Bank has a very strong deposit franchise having 41 crores Savings Bank accounts out of which 16 crore accounts under PMJDY / BSBD and of pensioner/minors/social security benefit holders were already exempted.
