Reg SBI, Manipal Branch
My son while studying in Manipal had opened a savings account there. It's almost 7 years since he left that place and went abroad while the account remained dormant. In spite of sending written requests by my son, SBI, Manipal has not acted upon to close the said account and send closure proceeds to the requested bank account in Bengaluru (all details such as address proof, ID proof, cancelled cheque etc., were sent). SBI expects that the person from Bengaluru has to visit the branch in Manipal in person to close and claim meager amount left in the account. The issue is lingering for past 4 months!
