The State bank of India (SBI) on Wednesday announced that all customers of the erstwhile associate banks that had merged with the SBI and the Bharatiya Mahila Bank (BMB) should apply for new cheque books by March 31.
Notably, the bank had extended the deadline on two occasions earlier.
The communique that was issued on the bank’s Twitter handle said that from now on the old cheque books of associate banks and BMB will not be valid after March 31.
It may be recalled that as many as five erstwhile associate banks and BMB merged with SBI last year.
The SBI communique on Twitter also stated that these customers have to apply for new cheque books via internet banking (onlineSBI.com) and mobile banking or by visiting ‘its ATMs and branches’.
The State Bank of India is now in the elite league of top 50 global banks after the merger of the five associate banks and the BMB.
