Regular Savings account
- For a regular savings account, one needs to maintain an average quarterly balance (AQB) is not applicable
Expat Savings Account
- For this account, one needs to maintain an AQB of Rs 40,000. On failure to maintain the AQB , the bank charges the percentage difference between the AQB or assets under management and the minimum balance requirement, whichever is lower.
Savings Account Value Plus
- For this type of account, one needs to maintain a AQB or AUM of Rs 150,000. If the client fails to maintain the minimum balance, then the bank charges the difference between the minimum cap and AUM or AQB.
