honestly, it's great that these banks are fucking up before upi has even taken off. sbi is the mothership. it is likely that other government banks would also increase aqb limits and charges for these services.
charging for cheque transactions? all business customers would dump them. actually i hope they get what they want. reduction in client base. it is clear that they have so many jan dhan accounts that they do not want regular accounts.
most banks give a specific number of cheque books free per quarter or year. current account holders have to pay for each booklet. hard to say about sbi these days. dad was issued a cheque book of i believe 100 leaves. which is enough for like 2 years.
