How to Find CIF number in State Bank of India

Over the years, the banking sector in India has come across phenomenal changes and the advent of internet banking has been the key reason behind this. All the banks in the country, including State Bank of India, have witnessed this transformation and it has led to a great improvement in the services provided to the customers.

One of the key aspects of modern baking services is CIF which stands for Customer Information File. This is a unique number related to a computerized file, which holds all the personal as well as account related information of the customer of the bank.

This number is of vital importance to the bank because it allows the bank to view the accounts of the customer, including key information such as account ownership and credit relationships.

It is the task of the bank to update the CIF on a daily basis so that the accuracy of the accounts is maintained. CIF includes additional information such as details of a customer, account types held by him, balances as well as transactions in these accounts.

The importance of CIF for the bank can be judged by the fact that the products and services are sold by the bank to the clients on the basis of CIF. Also you have to provide CIF number to transfer bank account one branch to other.
