    Sir,
    Presently I am t Pune since July,2012. My saving account maintained with sbi Jintur is to be transfered to Sbi Pune, university Road, Shivaji Nagar, Pune branch. Can it be possible to get my account tranferred by sending mail along with I Card issued By Principal of our college and PAN Card? It is very difficult to go at distant place only for depositing my application. Please guide me in this matter. I approach the shivaji nagar branch with original passbook but I have been told to deposit it to home branch ie At Jintur Branch. Pl give me solution to this problem

    • Hi Ramesh,

      You need to visit your Home Branch only, without which you cannot transfer your Account.

    • account can also be transferred online through net banking under ( e services) tab on home page og internet banking id………..passbook and cheque book need to be submitted to new branch for issuing new one.

  2. This condition of visiting the Home Branch is simply illogical. Nobody will have the new address proof before relocating to the new city and after relocating how sensible it is to visit it to home branch in previous city just for giving an application. Highly ridiculous

    • Talked to SBI customer care. Its not mandatory to visit the home branch. You can directly go to the new branch and submit the application along with reqired documents

  7. Hi sir, can SBI transfer my account to another branch whithout my consent or informing me to another branch? What should I do in this regard?

    I was working in Nagda, MP and I had my salary account in SBI, Nagda Branch from 2008 to 2012. Since then I never operated my account as on date. Now I want to transfer this account to my Home Town, Nagpur, Maharashtra. Please suggest procedure for account transfer. Also, I cannot visit Nagda Branch for any procedure.

    • Hi Swati,

      First of all you must understand that in such long periods the account becomes dormant. You will first need to activate your dormant account and then you can contact the branch in which you want to transfer your account. For both purposes you can contact the branch in which you want to transfer your account.

    i hold a savings account with sbi, karmanghat branch at hyderabad. for crediting the cash in our account the counter clerk is insisting that we buy a green remit card for remitting purpose. is it amndatory for us to buy a green remit card even to remit credits at home branch.

    • Hi KM Rao,

      It is not mandatory to get a Green Card to remit credits at home branch. It is used mostly for outstation transactions. You must talk to the concerned Branch Manager.
