  1. Response time to the given queries is very poor( SBI Hyderabad,Mallepally) despite follow up no acknowledgement and update is given by the branch manager. this gives an impression of over all branch operations and service standards.
    Hope this blog matters for improving the services for my self and every SBI account holder.

    2)IN SBI AND even in other banks ther should be CCTV to monitor behavior and working of staff/officers.
    3)employees may avail 5 days working…but there should be rostering to work 24×7……at least essential services .
    4)in case ATM at bank is not working …in times of Demonetisation ..they should hhave put a stsff at ATM with aswipe machine who colud give 2000-4000 cash…….but sorry the bank employees and unions only want more and more facilities on public money…….poor poor .

  3. timing is not set… kabi bi ayo kabi bi jayo…. sabh bakar yaha rishikesh sbi omkarananda brance me..

  4. Sbt nemmara… Such..a.bad…customer…relationship…………but..when..I..left…the..gate..was.closed…… deposit money by stating the nxt date in deposit slip and handing over to a staff over there.when I asked them to open the gate they refused to open it.. Saying that wait for 10mins when all r finished I would open it.Me being in clg uniform made them think that wht he would say if ask him to wait for some time.I had to catch my bus in time. But they refused and hence.

  5. Same problem in singhia branch in the samastipur district all tym ATM out of service & in the bank already money problem. & I am already aadhar submitted to bank but staff says me u r not submitted aadhar card. How funny हंशी आ रही है बैंक वालो पे।

  6. The SBI Notice Board shows that the timming is 10:00 AM to 04:00 PM, but between 02:00 to 03:00 PM they refused to do any work, they Protest for the holidays, 5 day week but never protest for not doing the work in proper timming… lazy bank, first update the mentality then update the IT system..

    • The bankers at SBI,T.81 Branch, Nakodar enjoy a lunch time of 1hour from 2 to 3 pm contrary to the instruction of half an hour Lunch time. And no Officer is concerned about it.

  7. So lazy system in SBI see other private bank all provide good facilities and not wait for transaction or any other work they all helpful and in SBI see lunch time all table no one sit in ambawadi branch customer waste his valuable time.

  8. No one is their to assist customers in lunch time at sbi dauji road bikaner. Only br. Manager is in branch in his cabin.

  9. I found the sbi branch at Zadeswar was open at 10.30 is it decided by the branch it self at what time it open and closed

  10. There is not any specific time for launch. Where more than 2 staff posted they will go alternatively.launch time is 30 min per staff. They will take it any time usually after 1.30 pm

  11. rong status hai. Ya fir bank walo ne apni marji ka time bana rakha hai koi rokne tokne wala Nahi hai.
    lunch time-1:30 TO 3:00 PM
    openings time-10:00 ; to 4pm

  12. Hi,
    I don’t agree with the statement that if you visit during lunch break then you can get services. Because I have a shop in front of sbi branch in Singho Dist Bathinda Punjab and everyday they open 10 am and close gate 2 pm for lunch . You can’t enter until 3pm . Rain, sun heat doesn’t matter stay out of bank.
    The most interesting point is atm booth is shut since demonetization.

  13. SBI Latur Branch at Tilak Nagar is not allowing customers entry before 10.30 am…..whom to complain??
