(Based on a True incident)
On one cool evening, I sat at Victory at the Sea of Visakhapatnam beach.

While I was sitting on the beach road, a 70-year-old man who sat next to me was on the phone with his friend.

This old man asked him “How’s your Health”?
And told him that, the due date to submit your Life certificate has arrived.
Have you submitted it?

A life certificate is a certificate to be submitted by retired Government employees every year to certify that the employee is alive. Those who submit it will get monthly pensions as per their eligibility.

This old man says I know your health condition is not good (With a heavy heart)
But try to get some energy and submit your Life Certificate with the nearest bank.

Then I thought, As his friend’s health condition is too bad to visit physically & submit his life certificate to the banker, I wanted to tell him about certain Banking services that can be completed successfully by sitting at home.

But that day I step backward, as I don’t know how they will react if an unknown person speaks about their financial dealings.

I keep myself calm.! But I want to share with you through this article.

Elders will get this situation and may not be able to go out of home on all the important banking-related tasks. If their children are with them, they may support them. If they are apart, someone should help them.

Let’s change this, my dear friends..!!

India’s largest Public sector Bank, the State Bank of India (SBI) is now offering certain banking-related services for the elders at their doorstep through SBI Door Step Services or SBI doorstep banking

SBI Doorstep Banking is a good initiative from India’s Largest bank. It is available only to Senior citizens aged 70 years or more. The service cost seems on a little higher side, as the representative needs to visit home but it’s worth it to those who cannot go outside and complete their work.

However, the drawback is that SBI might allow these services to senior citizens aged above 60 years instead of 70 years. It will help a lot of SBI-aged customers.

I hope you understand the “SBI Doorstep Banking Services” concept.
