Penalty for non-maintenance of minimum balance in post office savings account reduced

 The penalty for non-maintenance of the minimum balance in a post office savings account has been reduced by half. As per a notification issued by the Ministry of Finance on April 9, 2021, the account maintenance fee which is levied for non-maintenance of minimum balance in the post office savings account has been reduced to Rs 50 (inclusive of GST) from Rs 100 levied at present.

This was done as part of the amendments to the Post Office Savings Account Scheme 2019 rules.

As per the post office savings account rules, an account holder is required to maintain a minimum balance of Rs 500 currently. If the minimum balance of the post office savings account falls below Rs 500 and the difference is not deposited into the account before the end of the financial year, then an account maintenance fee is levied.

This account maintenance fee was Rs 100, which has now been reduced to Rs 50 (inclusive of GST). Further, if due to deduction of account maintenance fee, the account balance becomes nil, then the post office savings account will automatically be closed. Further, if the minimum balance is not maintained in the post office savings account, then interest will not be paid.

The minimum balance requirement is also applicable on silent accounts as well. Silent accounts are those accounts where no deposits/withdrawals have been made for three continuous financial years.

Interestingly, in March 2020, the State Bank of India (SBI) waived off the minimum balance amount requirement. There is no monthly average balance requirement in the SBI savings account.


Now zero balance post office savings account can only be opened by these people

The government has amended the Post Office Savings Account Scheme rules to allow certain people to open zero balance basic savings accounts with the post office. Currently, post office savings accounts come with a minimum balance requirement that must be maintained mandatorily.

As per a notification by the Ministry of Finance dated April 9, 2021, a basic savings account (or zero balance account) with the post office can be opened by an individual (a) who is a registered adult member of any government welfare scheme and (b) by the guardian of a minor whose name is registered for any government benefit.

The basic savings account opened by the above-mentioned people will be a zero balance account, however, the number of accounts that can be opened cannot be more than one. Government welfare deposits and any other deposits are allowed under the basic savings account with the post office. Thus, if you are availing any government benefit such as pension, scholarship, LPG subsidy etc. and do not want to maintain a minimum balance in your savings account, then you can open such a zero-balance account with the post office.

Currently, as per the scheme rules, the post office savings account requires a minimum balance of Rs 500. If the minimum balance in the post office account is not maintained, then the account maintenance fee is deducted from the individual's account.

It appears that the government is allowing the opening of zero balance account with the post office as well which were earlier opened with the banks. At present, banks allow customers to open zero balance accounts. The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has allowed banks to open zero balance account under Jan-Dhan Yojana scheme/Basic Savings Bank Deposit Account (BSBDA).

Such bank accounts come with certain restrictions. In case of the BSBDA account, the maximum balance that can be maintained in the account is Rs 50,000. Total deposits that are allowed under the BSBDA account in a financial year cannot exceed Rs 1 lakh. Further, the maximum amount that can be withdrawn in a particular month cannot exceed Rs 10,000. Not more than four withdrawals are allowed in a month.

With regards to post office savings account, the government's notification does not specify any such restrictions for zero balance basic savings accounts.
