Business News/ Money / Personal Finance/  Transacting at a non-home branch of SBI, HDFC, ICICI? Know the limits, charges

There are various disadvantages of banking at a non-home bank branch. A home branch of a bank is where a customer opens his/her savings bank account. So, basically, a home branch is a branch where the customer’s account is maintained. And the banking facilities available to customers at branches other than the home branch are called non-home branches.

If any cash transaction, such as deposit or withdrawal, is done at a non-home branch, a fee is levied. This fee varies across banks. Also, some banks charge even if a third party makes a cash transaction.

For instance, if you have a savings account with the State Bank of India (SBI), you can withdraw up to 50,000 a day at a non-home branch, using the withdrawal form accompanied by the passbook. For the Current account holders, the limit is 1 lakh.

However, the cash withdrawals at home & non-home branch (charges based on a number of transactions) are not applicable to small/no-frill deposits/basic savings bank account holders, the country's top lender said.

In case you have an account with the SBI, then non-home branches do not issue duplicate fixed deposit receipts. Also, loan discharge through cash repayment or transfer of account is not permissible from a non-home branch. Moreover, you can’t extend investments in the public provident fund (PPF) on completion of fifteen years through an application at a non-home branch.
