  1. I have an account in the Bank of India and I wanted to close it online over the phone. I followed the procedure you have mentioned above (Method 1) and called customer care to request the bank branch to close my account (Method 2) however the customer care said that it is mandatory for you to visit the branch to close the account. When I asked customer care to let me know if there was any form to be filled on which they said that the branch will tell the procedure if there was any form to be filled. I requested customer care to consider me as I am a senior citizen and cannot visit the bank but the customer care did not consider my request. I told them that the bank branch does not entertain phone calls and does not respond to emails either. Will there ever be any consideration for senior citizens by the bank for such a small service?
