Moneylife Digital Team 29 June 2012

 The action by the apex bank should serve as a pointer to other banks—big and small—that charge excessive service charges

The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has imposed a monetary penalty of Rs2 lakh on the Bundi Urban Co-operative Bank located at  Bundi in Rajasthan. According to a press release, the bank has been penalised for "repeated violations of Reserve Bank of India (RBI) directives relating to donation and levy of service charges on customers". A show-cause notice was sent to the bank, but the central bank found the response unsatisfactory.

Levying monetary penalty for violation of RBI guidelines on services charges to customers is the first of its kind by the RBI. The action by the apex bank should serve as a pointer to other banks-big and small-that charge excessive service charges.
