In some cases though. If you are not a worthy customer I guess.

According to the HDFC Bank website, for closure of savings account, the Bank customer, depending on the nature and tenure of his account, will have to pay a fee of Rs500 and if the average monthly balance falls below Rs20,000 in non-urban centres, it will charge Rs500 a month.

I have never closed any bank account and left them abandoned . Because all banks have almost similar policies.

since they would cut charges for having a low balance... your account balance would go into negative. and that might end up hurting your credit rating. just saying. it is never a good idea to leave a bank account inactive.

I had closed my accounts in PNB, DCB, State Bank of Indore, Axis Bank and ICICI Bank. And except ICICI Bank, I don't think I would be in a situation to go back to rest of the bank. So, this is the reason I left the accounts abandoned. ICICI was my Salary Account, So I don't think I need to worry about. What Say ??

20000 AVB in NON-urban areas? Have they lost it? Even ICICI charges 5000 for non-urban and 10K for urban

The rascals screwed my credit rating without even giving me any benefit of all that. They did around 15 enquries to give me a ****ing credit card, this after they themselves were after me for giving me a card. Bastards

Is this even legal to apply this on existing customers? I mean when someone opened an account, they were under the impression that closing that account would be free but now the bank says pay up 500 bucks? seems unfair.
