Digitisation has made banking so convenient, and one may only to compare with post offices that are also into banking, with extant systems, such as pass books, or personally getting money with the using cheques, to notice how far banks have come. Transparency while also paper saving. See how much scaling up and scoping throughout for example demat accounts in stock trading where the bank acts as intermediary cum depository, has been achieved. Keep these positives into reckoning when discussing bank websites and apps. more

But transaction was not successful, but I had to wait for almost two months to get refund- after many visits to Mulund East gallery, calls on 400 & 121, mails & Tweets.

I realized that the SBI online banking was created by the babus for the babus. The system replicates the old paperwork and does nothing to simplify or intuitively act on the user inputs.

And then direct credits or debits " many a times the banker too does have have full details of from where or for what it is? These are justa few more
