    What does "minimum balance maintenance" means ? say if minimum balance is 5,000, do we have to keep the minimum balance for the whole month? if we just show the 5,000 transaction in a month is enough??

    You will need to keep 5,000 as a balance on an average for the whole month ... Its not the transaction, its the balance that needs to be maintained at all times.

  6. Updates: Axis Bank revised to 10,000 for Metro/urban location, whereas the SBI offer Zero balance for existing and new customer.
