By the way, what are those "some documents"  that are required acording to 
ICICI's agent? Have you lodged a written complaint?  ICICI or any other bank 
can not deny you from opening an account. Can send you the detailed 
guidelines pertaining to operational details of Visually impaired person's 
bank accounts.

Subject: [AI] problems in opening a bank account

Hi friends,
need some help and suggestions from you.
I opened an IBM salary account with the ICICI bank on the 10/06/07.
At the time of opening the account the agent had not insisted on the 
submision of any documents even though I asked him just for confirmation.
on the 20/06/07 the agent informed me that the account cannot be activated 
due to the requirement of "some" documents and they also stress that it is 
clear from my photograph that I'am a visually impaired person. On the 
22/06/07 I also lodged a complaint with ICICI, which is still in the open 
My grievances have not yet been addressed. The agent says that he has sent 
the case to his Mumbai office for clarification. Such issues are to be 
addressed seriously since ICICI claims to launch talking ATMS in the near 
future. How can a bank provide talking ATMS when it does not allow the 
visually impaired candidates to open accounts with it?
sorry to send such a long mail, but , friends it is serious and I wish to 
know from you what steps should I take.
