Indian Banks usually don’t charge to open new accounts but they do charge a small amount while closing an account. Axis Bank is not so different than others when it comes to these account closing charges. Below is the list of charges for closing a basic current account in Axis Bank.
|If the account is active for less than a year||INR 250|
|If the account is active for over a year||INR 500|
Axis Bank charges Rs 500 to close a basic savings account.
This charge is only applied when the savings account is active between 14 days and 6 months after opening. If the basic savings account is closed before 14 days or after 6 months of opening it, then no charges will be applied.
