State Bank of India Review

State Bank of India is the largest bank in the country of India. The bank's U.S. operations are based in Los Angeles and include FDIC member branches in New York and Chicago.

The parent bank opened in 1806 in Calcutta. It now operates more than 50 banks in over 30 countries. In 2009, Business India named it "The Best Bank."

One of the main services of this bank is to facilitate easy money transfers between accounts in India and the U.S. There is no charge for remittance of rupees but a small charge to transfer U.S. dollars.

Deposit accounts

U.S. customers can open accounts with either the New York or Chicago branch of the bank. There are three different types of deposit accounts available at both banks. CD terms range from 3 months to 5 years with better bank interest rates for higher balances as well as longer terms.

For the tiered interest rate money market account, the required opening deposit depends on whether the account holder is an individual or business and whether the account is based inside or outside the U.S.

The checking account is a non-interest checking account for customers based in the U.S. The minimum balance to keep the account fee-free is $500 for individuals and $2,500 for businesses. The Chicago branch of the bank offers a standard savings account.

Credit, trade and loans

A variety of credit and international trade finance services are available through State Bank of India. These services include FOREX transactions, trade financing, standby letters of credit, risk management advisory services, Eurodollar transactions and credit line management. Loans include lines of credit, fixed-tenor loans and overdraft loans against cash collateral.

Deposit insurance

The New York and Chicago branches of State Bank of India have been insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation since 1971 and 1975 respectively. FDIC coverage for eligible deposits was permanently increased from $100,000 to $250,000 per depositor in July 2010. Joint accounts are insured by FDIC up to at least $250,000 per account holder.

    ICICI BANK is the WORST DIPLOMATIC, MONEY SUCKING BANK I HAVE EVER ENCOUNTERED. OPENING AN ACCOUNT IS EASY BUT CLOSING IS LIKE CLIMBING MOUT EVEREST. THEY WILL CHARGE YOU FOR EVERY FALSE SERVICE YOU HAVE NEVER USED AND THEIR EMPLOYEES WILL GIVE YOU EVERY KIND OF FALSE INFORMATION ABOUT CHARGES AND SERVICES ONCE YOU DECIDE TO CLOSE THE ACCOUNT. THEY WILL FORGET EVERY PROMISES AND SERVICE GUARANTEES THEY MADE WHILE OPENING ACCOUNT ONCE YOU TELL THEM THAT YOU WANT TO CLOSE THE ACCOUNT. THEIR BANKING SYSTEM IS SHADOWY, AND NO DIRECT EMAIL ADDRESS GIVEN IN THEIR SITE SO THAT YOU CAN SEND THEM EMAIL (AND YOU WILL HAVE PROOF ABOUT CONTACT IN YOUR EMAIL). THEY RECEIVE COMPLAINS BY ONLINE FORM FILLING OR PHONE BANKING FOR WHICH YOU DONT HAVE A VALID PROOF OF THE DATA OF YOUR COMPLAIN. SOMETIMES THEY EVEN DENY TO ACCEPT YOUR WRITTEN COMPLAINS AND/OR GIVE YOU A "RECEIVED STAMPED" COPY OF YOUR COMPLAIN LETTER SO THAT YOU DONT HAVE ANY PROOF. ITS THE WORST BANK IN INDIA. DONT OPEN ACCOUNT IN ICICI BANK IF YOU HAVE HARD EARNED YOUR MONEY. GO FOR CITI OR SBI OR ANY PUBLIC SECTOR BANK(YOU WONT BE CHARGED FALSEFULLY IN PUBLIC SECTOR BANK).
