With only 2 months left for this year to end, new rules for some banks have come into picture, which will directly affect the pockets of their customers.
For some banks, their customers will now have to pay an extra fee amount for depositing as well as withdrawing their money, starting from November 1, 2020.
Among this set of banks, the public sector bank Bank of Baroda has started its customers with a certain amount of fee, for deposit and withdrawal of money beyond a prescribed limit, w.e.f Nov 1.
In fact, not just public sector banks, some private banks too have fallen under this list, but they haven’t taken a final call on this query yet.
Free Transactions only Thrice a Month
It has been reported that for such banks, customers will be able to withdraw their money for free, i.e. without paying any additional charge, only thrice in a month.
After 3 free withdrawals in a month, a withdrawal transaction charge will be charged at a flat fee of Rs 150 for a loan account.
Similarly, in case of savings account, customers can deposit for free only thrice a month, after which a fee of Rs 40 will be charged on each transaction.
Jan Dhan account holders have some relief here, which means that while they will not be charged for fee deposits, these account holders will have to pay a fee of Rs 100 only for withdrawal.
Additionally, no relief will be provided to senior citizens.
BOB and Other Banks to Implement This
While Bank of Baroda has reported to start charging its customers with transaction fee beyond a prescribed limit, some other banks are in line of doing the same too, once they confirm their decision.
These banks include Bank of India, PNB, Axis Bank and Central Bank, among others. However, they still need to declare their final call on the matter, yet.
Speaking of Bank of Baroda, the public sector bank has set separate fees for current account, cash credit limit and deposit withdrawal from overdraft account and deposit withdrawal from savings account.
