Recently I heard that even public sector banks have started charging fees for some services which hitherto came free, atleast with public sector banks. In this case, it was for attestation of address proof which is the Bank Passbook.
My father went to the Indian Bank branch in which holds an Saving account and asked for the attestation of the photo address proof. The Manager obliged to attest subject to a charge of Rs35/- for this purpose. The amount got debited and my father got the attestation.
Even Public sector banks have started finding out ways to increase their fee based income. Good for the bank and their shareholders and bad luck customers!!
PS: I was informed that for the same service ICICI Bank charges Rs.100/-. So PSU Banks are keeping the interest of the customers at heart and charging a lesser fee for that!!!
