IndianMoney Review: How To Minimize Bank Charges?

1. Close unused bank accounts:

When you change your job, you don't really bother about closing the salary account. But, it is always good to close that account if you are not using it. Not maintaining the minimum balance in your old salary account can attract charges. So, it is advisable to close all the unused accounts to avoid these charges.

You must maintain the minimum balance in the accounts you are using. If you do not maintain minimum balance, you will be charged a fine. The amount charged varies from one bank to another.

2. Do not use cheque

Avoid using cheques and shift to online banking to make payments. Banks will charge for issuing additional cheque books. The amount charged varies across banks.

3. Know the ATM transaction limit

You will be provided a fixed number of free monthly ATM transactions by banks. ATM transactions consist of both financial and non-financial transactions. Non-financial transactions are balance enquiry, mini statement, changing ATM pin and opening fixed deposits via ATMs. Financial transactions are cash deposits and withdrawals. Once you complete the free transactions, banks charge money for the withdrawals.

You can avoid these charges by knowing ATM transaction limits provided by your bank and make sure not to cross the limit. IndianMoney review says that instead of withdrawing cash from the ATMs, you can use digital payments.

4. Do not forget your PIN

Many banks charge money for regenerating PINs, so make sure not to forget your IPIN and debit card PIN.

5. Charges for dishonoured cheques

Make sure to issue cheques, only if you have balance in your bank account. Dishonoured cheques attract charges of around Rs 500-750 a cheque. Issuing cheques without having sufficient balance is a criminal offence.

6. Pay your credit card bill on time

Not paying credit card dues on time attracts late payment penalty and you will be charged interest on the outstanding amounts. If you pay the minimum amount due, you can escape only from a penalty, not from the interest charged on the outstanding amount. So, IndianMoney review says you must clear all the credit card dues on time.

7. Do not withdraw cash using your credit card

Withdrawing cash using a credit card is a very bad habit. If you withdraw cash using your credit card, you will be charged cash withdrawal fees and interest will be charged from the very next day. So, make sure not to withdraw cash using credit card to avoid these charges.

8. Do not cross your credit limit 

The credit limit is an amount you can spend with your credit card. Crossing the credit limit will attract charges. So make sure not cross your credit limit.
