Banking is a fundamental need of every individual. While banking itself has evolved over the years, it continues to serve the primary purpose it is meant for – helping us save for the future. Given that society is made up of different classes of individuals, the banking requirements of each class will be different from the other. Also, banking facilities are available to differing extents in urban areas and rural areas. While an urban bank branch will offer a bouquet of services, in a rural area, there may not be any bank to provide such sophisticated yet basic services. Often in rural areas, individuals have to rely on the services of informal moneylenders for their financing needs.
In order to remedy that situation, Indian Bank now offers the Vikas Savings Khata, a special savings account which has been designed for all those individuals who have been deprived of basic banking facilities. This Indian Bank savings account comes with multiple beneficial terms and advantages which can help the said individuals to maximize their savings and gains. Neither does this savings account require any initial deposit to be made, nor does it require the account holder to maintain a minimum balance to keep the account active. In addition to that, this account comes with several other benefits like an ATM cum debit card, up to 10 charge free transactions in a month, charge-free intra-city transactions, Demand Draft / BPO facility, option to avail other value added services on fulfilment of KYC formalities.
