PPF account in SBI Jaipur



The SBI Vaishali Nagar Branch manager Mr. Arvind said on 24 Nov 2011 that RBI has issued a new directive to SBI stating that anyone wishing to open a PPF account must open a SB Account first in the SBI. The SBI and RBI websites do not mention any such thing. I have written to SBI Help Line to provide a copy of that new directive from RBI.

Subject: PPF Account opening Jaipur

Importance: High


Dear Sir,

Is it mandatory to open a Savings Bank account with SBI in order to have a PPF account ??

The Jaipur branch Vaishali Nagar has told me that there is a new directive from RBI that I must have a SB account with SBI in order to open a PPF Account.

RBI and SBI websites do not mention any such thing.

I request a copy of that directive please.

If you do not get circular or reply, you may file RTI with the bank seeking certified copy of circular issued by its HO mandating that PPF account opener should first open SB a/c with the branch. Please refer:



Central Govt application:



Make effective:



You may address RTI application to Branch Head/ACPIO, SBI Vaishali Nagar branch and submit the same with cash of Rs.10/-. If you are not in India,your friend or relative can also file RTI application in his own name for these details.
