I hold a savings account with SBI since about 18 months now. Although I did not have much problems opening the account but I have not been given any facilities ATM or internet banking. A few days ago upon my request I got the internet banking facility, it is not complete. At the beginning I was informed that I will have even the transaction rites I later discovered it was not true.
Now the branch manager claims he cannot give me transactions rites and even viewing rites was something that I should not have got it. Although he acknowledges the technology we use for internet banking, he is still not willing to give me the transaction rites. Even after 2 months I'm not able to do any online transaction and still I'm required to personally go and draw money although the bank knows I operate a salary account with another bank with all the facilities.

Circulars, requests and persuasion has gone unheeded and the only option now left is to take it up with the higher authorities. Since SBI is a party to the circular and being the # 2 largest nationalized bank in the country, this attitude is very painful. Please let me know options to bring this manager to book and get this problem resolved. To whom can I write either in RBI or SBI to get it resolved.

Looking for your guidance in this regard.
