First of all, understand, what is a nomination!

Bank account holders having deposit accounts in their individual names or in joint names of two or more individuals can appoint a nominee to their accounts.

Q1. What is Nomination?

Nomination is a facility that enables a deposit account holder(s) (individual or sole proprietor) or safe deposit locker holder(s) to nominate an individual, who can claim the proceeds of the deposit account(s) or contents of the safe deposit locker(s), post the demise of the original depositor(s) or locker holder(s).

The benefit of nomination is that in the event of a death of an account holder(s) or locker holder(s), the Bank can release the account proceeds or contents of the locker to the nominee(s) without insisting upon a Succession Certificate, Letter of Administration or Court Order. The nominee holds the monies in the capacity of a Trustee on behalf of the legal heirs of the deceased account holder(s) or locker holder(s) and the Bank’s liability is duly discharged on payment to the Nominee.

  1. Online Nomination is now not under “e-Services” but under “Request & Enquiries”.
    I observe that a customer had pointed out this discrepancy way back in April, 2018 and you have also responded to him saying that you would update the same soon.
    But, even after a lapse of 6 months, the same is yet to be updated.

    Will the authorities concerned personally look into this matter and ensure that the information is duly updated. This will help a lot of customers who are otherwise struggling to navigate in the site.
