Opening a bank account in most of the banks has become as simple as purchasing a new dress. I opened an individual account in SBI Bank near my house. Its quiet simple all you got to do is simple just fill in the form online or from the bank and submit. Few verification certificates like ration card, passport, driving license and so on. Got to show any of the listed certificates for residence verification. Your application was checked and immediately the passbook was issued. Within minutes passbook will be issued and you can make your first transaction of limiting amount. You can also avail Debit card, so that you can use it anywhere within the country.
