PSU Banks won't take any step like this is near future. Finance ministry clarified it. The government on Tuesday quashed all the media reports alluding to steep increase in service charges by certain Public Sector Banks (PSBs). In this regard, the Ministry of Finance issued a "factual position".

"No service charge is applicable on the 60.04 crore Basic Savings Bank Deposit accounts, including 41.13 crore Jan Dhan accounts opened by the poor and unbanked segments of society, for the free services prescribed by RBI," said the ministry in an official statement.

Due to Covid, no PSU bank will raise bank charges in near future: Govt

IMO 7-10 times should be minimum free chance each for diposit and withdrawal. After that they should do whatever they want. Same with UPI. The limit should be more than 100 if we really want to promote digital India. Otherwise why will i pay extra money to do digital transactions or doing anything by Bank?! There needs to be a balance between welfare of both Consumer and Banks.

I am guessing it is because of processing fees. Like when we give them money, they just don't keep it in that branch. They have to transfer it to some where else. Or even bring money from HQ to their branch in case of withdrawal. These involves cost like transport, security and all. So probably banks are trying to recover these charges from customers. I mean they aren't in Charity. Banks are kind of a business. That's why i said a fair balance is needed. If any Banker is here, they can explain it better why they are charging us.

Normal saving account aren't there to allow unlimited transaction. That is why current account is there. Business owner use that account. Sooner or later they would have implemented this. NPA may have speed up the process. So the point here is how many free transactions we will get in a savings account. All these rules are applicable to saving account only.

Because you referenced UPI,Digital Transactions in "Same with UPI. The limit should be more than 100 if we really want to promote digital India. Otherwise why will i pay extra money to do digital transactions or doing anything by Bank" .I thought of telling you UPI and other Card Charges.In Some Places Bank is Charging regarding UPI and in Case of Cards the Processing Fee is very high for International Card Providers.
