Bank Locker Rent.

Yester day we got a letter from the Bank in which we have taken a medium sized Locker for rent, informing the yearly rent for the locker has been doubled to Rs.6000/- from Rs.3000/- . The new rent will come to effect from 1st June 2019.
I am told many other Banks have also increased Bank Charges similarly.No one will object for nominal increase in Locker Rent, but doubling looks exorbitant. Whether this has been done with the consent of any "regulatory authority" or left to the whims and pleasure of the Banks ?

At Canara Bank, the charges are relatively lower.


As per RBI guidelines, no Bank should demand for deposit. However, Banks are requesting customers to keep long term deposits, to meet the service cost viz., Lease rentals of Locker. The interest accrued on the FD will be credited towards the rent for Locker.

Conclusion
Although there are guidelines given by banks on locker operation, banks still try to circumvent the rules especially in forcing hirers to make investments beyond what is required as per RBI guidelines. Also the practice of locker facility only to bank account holders is against RBI policy. As banks generally have a minimum balance limit in all accounts.
Banks also try to avoid paying compensation in case there is security failure on their part.
It would be great if the RBI forces all the banks to compulsorily adopt nomination facility as a pre the condition for availing locker facility.

When Banks lose huge amounts in NPA transactions, they try to squeeze the honest middle class who invest their hard earned savings. Interest on FDs and savings are reduced regularly, as against this Charges for transactions increased. Banks are ceased to be service organisations.
I wish Finance Ministry and RBI should examine all aspects of Banking and regularise the system to favour the small investors.

every bank increased their locker charges recently....automatic payment from savings account....nobody

generally argue with bankers....becoz lockers are deficient....demand is more and supply is less..so
