In such a situation, when you ask the bank to close this account, many times you are asked to repay the amount that has gone into minus. Today we will tell you what is the rule of the Reserve Bank of India i.e. RBI regarding this.


The bank cannot recover money

If you have not maintained the balance then your balance may become zero, but it cannot go into minus. Many times the balance shows in minus, but banks cannot take it from you. The bank cannot tell you that if you have a negative balance, you will have to repay it first.
