Steps to open a Bank Account

Whenever you open a bank account in India, you need to have certain documents which have been stated by all state-owned and private banks to meet the Know Your Customer (KYC) requirements.

The process is simple and described below:

  1. To open any type of account you desire, visit the nearest bank's branch of your choice, or visit its website to procure the bank account opening form. Fill-up the form with required details such as your name, permanent address, date of birth, names of parents and/or spouse, and your signature. After you have applied for one of the accounts you will be asked to present the following documents:
  1. A bank executive will guide the customer to fill the application form.
  2. Submit the filled application form along with documents to the bank for account verification
  3. When the verification is complete, bank executives will hand over the debit card/credit card and relevant documents regarding the account.
