SBI to cut minimum balance requirement

Under pressure from the government, the country's largest lender State Bank of India (SBI) is understood to be reviewing its minimum balance requirement which is currently Rs 3,000 in urban centers.




The bank is also changing the requirement from monthly average balance to quarterly average balance. The move follows reports that the bank made Rs 1,772 crore in fees by imposing penalties for non-maintenance of minimum balance between April and November 2017.

According to sources, the bank is looking at bringing down the minimum balance requirement to around Rs 1,000 but is yet to take a call. SBI had originally increased the minimum balance requirement to Rs 5,000 in June. However, following public backlash the bank brought down the minimum balance requirement to Rs 3,000+ in metros, Rs 2,000 in semi-urban and Rs 1,000 in rural centres.

At that time the bank also did away with the minimum balance requirement for minors and pensioners and reduced penal charges. The penalties which ranged from Rs 25 to Rs 100 were lowered to Rs 20-50 range (excluding GST).

When contacted, bank officials said that no decision has been taken on revising the minimum balance requirements. However, sources said that the bank was calculating the impact of a revision in charges. The shift to an average quarterly balance requirement will help those with irregular cash flows to make up their balance shortfall in one month through a higher balance in the subsequent month.While SBI's Rs 3,000 minimum balance requirement is higher than what is charged by several public sector banks, it is the lowest among large private banks. For example, the big four private banks—ICICI, HDFC Bank, Kotak and Axis—have a Rs 10,000 minimum balance requirement for regular metro accounts.

BI has 27 crore savings accounts that are subject to maintaining a minimum balance. SBI has 27 crore savings accounts that are subject to maintaining the minimum balance. Earlier an RTI query had revealed that SBI recovered Rs 235 crore as penalty from 3.89 crore normal savings bank accounts for not maintaining the minimum monthly average balance in April.

SBI had earlier said that the bank was forced to review its charges because of an increase in expenses. One of the biggest expense was the costs involved in linking bank accounts with Aadhaar. The increase in the number of Jan Dhan Accounts had increased the operational cost of the bank.
