    I do agree with Mr.G.H.Rao’s comment that NEFT TRANSACTIONS MUST BE MADE FREE FOR ALL BANKS, as the customer is reducing the Bank personnel’s job and minimising paper work like clearing and also Cheque leaf wastage is avoided

  • gh rao

    the authorities concerned are hereby earnestly requested to allow net banking transactions on round the clock24@7 basis.otherwise it serves only limited purpose.bank transactions must be
    extended at least up to 19:00 instead 16:00 which is in vogue at present.
    NET BANKING TRANSACTIONS MUST BE MADE FREE IRRESPECTIVE OF PUBLIC AND PRIVATE BANKS THROUGH OUT THE COUNTRY.
