SBI ATM cash withdrawal fees, rules to change in two days. Details here



The State Bank of India (SBI) has revised the service fees for cash withdrawals from its ATMs and bank branches. The new fees would apply to the checkbook, transfers and other non-financial transactions, the lender said on its website. The new service fees will take effect from July 1, 2021 and will be applicable for Basic Savings Deposit (BSBD) account holders.

Checkbook fees

SBI would provide 10 free checks in a fiscal year to BSBD account holders. After that, SBI will charge a certain amount for the delivery of the checks.

10 sheet check Book on ₹40 plus GST

25-sheet check Book on ₹75 plus GST

Emergency checkbook: ₹50 plus TPS for 10 sheets or part thereof.

However, seniors will be exempt from these new checkbook service charges.

Cash withdrawals from SBI ATMs

According to the SBI website, there will be four free cash withdrawals available – including ATMs and bank branches each month for BSBD account holders. The bank will apply a charge of ₹15 plus GST for each transaction over the free limit. Cash withdrawal fees will be applicable to the home branch and ATMs and not SBI.

Cash withdrawal at SBI branches

The bank will recover the charges beyond four free cash withdrawal transactions. This includes transactions made at a branch as well as an automated teller machine. The new rate is ₹15 plus GST per branch / ATM cash withdrawal transaction.

There would be no fees on non-financial transactions by BSBD account holders at SBI and non-SBI bank branches. Transfer transactions will also be free in branch and on alternative channels for these account holders, the lender said.

The SBI BSBD account, commonly referred to as a zero balance savings account, is primarily intended for the poorest segments of society. The bank offers the same interest rate on zero balance accounts as it does on regular savings accounts.
