    Country's largest lender, State Bank of India (SBI), has revised its service charges for savings account holders with effect from 1st October. These service charges include revision of charges per month for non-maintenance of Average Monthly Balance (AMB), number of free transactions per month via ATM, among others. SBI clarified that social media posts saying that only 40 cash deposit/withdrawal transactions in a year are free are not correct. SBI also said reports of only four ATM transactions in a month are free are not correct either.

    Here is a look at SBI's free ATM, cash deposit, withdrawal transactions:

    1) Cash deposits in SBI savings account in a bank branch will be free for up to 3 transactions in a month and 36 in a year.

    2) After that, SBI's account holder will be charged 50 plus GST for every transaction.

    3) Cash withdrawal in SBI savings account in a bank branch will be free for up to 2 transactions in a month and 24 transactions in a year.

    4) The number of free cash withdrawals at a branch will be dependent on the AMB or Average Monthly Balance of your account. If the transaction exceeds beyond the specified limit, then you will be charged 50 plus GST per transaction.

    5) SBI customers are allowed 5 transactions per month free of cost at SBI ATMs in a month.
