Complaints & Reviews

very poor & careless marketing approach

I had applied online for getting SBI Credit Card (Platinum). I received several phone calls on mobile from SBI Cards Service Agents. Their so called executives met me thrice and collected every time from me, Copy of PAN Card, Salary Slip, Copy of Driving Licence but the card has not yet been issued to me. On 07/05/2008, I again received phone call from 011-[protected] followed by a confirmation call from 011-[protected]. They again foolishly enquired those things which I had already informed us for several times. They again insisted me to provide same documents (PAN Card, Salary Slip & Driving Licence) to their executive who supposed to come to me between 2.00 p.m. to 3.00 p.m. on 07/05/2008. I had been waiting for him till 6.30 p.m. but no body came to me. Now I am waiting for more foolish calls of the same type from SBI Card Services who are reluctantly doing this job of marketing of SBI Credit Card.

reminders after full n final settlement

I am pasting the mail sequence sent to sbi against the complain, but no one has bothered to respond

Dear sir,

After making full n final settlement also, your executives are again calling me for o/s amount and talking very rude and in abusive language.

This is really disgusting and no one is responding to my mails also.

If the case is not resolved within this week, i'll go to consumer court.

Regards,
Amar

Dear sir,

This is to inform that I had made a payment of rs2000.00 on 30th mar'08 for the full and final settlement against the o/s of above mentioned credit card no.

Now, after making a full n final settlement also, I have again received a o/s letter with delayed payment interest mention for 10/04/08.

I'm unable to understand what kind of full n final settlement has been done from ur end??? why again am I receiveing o/s amount of 10th april'08 of the mentioned credit card when it has already been settled and closed on 31st mar'08???

Pls clear it off and send me a full n final settlement letter else i'll move to consumer court with your statements of full n final settlement as on 31st mar'08 and again sending me o/s amount of 10th april of the same card.

Regards,
Amar

over due charges

I had availed the SBI credit card no. [protected] facilities in 2003 to 2005. Only once I had used it in August 2003 and paid its dues. I discontinued its use and card was returned to your main branch. Now When I contacted for the personal loan from my salary SBI bank in Dilshad garden then they disclosed that SBI Bank has shown me as Defaulter for the Rs. 1, 000=00 on 30.4.2008. Kindly help me, this amount I do not understand how it has become so. Submitted for the favorable action immediately, but if any out standing payment remains, Pl let me know and waive off the undue interest. I would like to clear it at the earliest, because we are in the process of a personal loan from SBI, Dilshad Garden whose Mangaer has kept our loan up hold due this defaulter name in the name list being exhibted at the Credit Infomation Buereue(India) Ltd. Kindly delet my name from the defaulter list and if any thing due is please let me know and I would happly settle it. Pl feel free to contact me at my mobile.

sbi frauds on prepayment of personal loan

Hi, I took a personal loan of 100000 with 2670 emi for 48 months, i paid for 25 months, and i did a prepayment for another 23 months the sbi bank has calculated entire 23 months outstanding emi + prepayment charge 2%, this will result in 1200 more that what i will be paying in next 23 months, this seems to be unfair. i have closed the loan but fighting with banker for the loss i have to bear, i did not get a paisa benefit by paying the loan amount before time that too about 2yrs before . do you think this is unfaif on sbi, they did not reduce a paisa on the intrest for this 23 months. pls sug

online transactions

There are many things to complain about the service that SBI provides to its credit card holder. But the most annoying things,

1. Type of online services provided. It is ridiculous to sign on for again if you are not able to sign in using your existing log in information. I did it three times but still I can not access my account online.

2. The drop box facility is amusing, just to drop a check you have to travel to Deccan Branch in Pune cause the skypak drop boxes are horrible. You will certainly not sleep until your payment gets credited if drop the check in any one of these.

3. The statements reach you just in time. (Before the payment due date) and you will receive SMS's confirming the dispatch of you statement just in 3-4 days after the billing date to keep you on your toes. Funny it takes 12-16 days for a statement to reach you in bigger city like Pune. I wish none in a small city should have a SBI card.

4. More to this, the statements take weeks to reach you on email. Must be passing thru each and every possible wire!!!

5. The last and the BEST, even if you do not want to use the card and cut it and throw it? Dont worry. You will receive a same card from SBI soon!!! :-)

unwanted charges for promotional offers

These are the mails going on from 30/05/07 but have not resolved the dispute yet and now sbi have started harassing me by sending legal letters for the charges I am not liable to pay.

Hi,

Please note that yesterday, I got a letter for collection of dues which was also forwarded to my employer - can I ask why the same was sent to my employer, when the billing itself is under dispute and I have not been provided proofs for the same???

I have certain disputes regarding billing of my credit card for which I am not being provided any concrete proofs even after speaking to en number of people and en-number of mails sent to sbi for the same.

Also I have even asked for details of some senior person and your sbi office address with whom I can speak to and resolve the issue - which is again not given to me till date?

Yesterday I called up your number and spoke to mr. varun chawla (ist line supervisor) and according to him if sbi has sent documents - I am liable to pay for the same - further I was told that he can show me the proofs of pod recd by sbi. on asking for verification of the voice log on which according to sbi I have given my consent - I was told that they cant be provided to me and simply I will have to pay the dues.

My question was the documents were sent to me for my reference and not by my consent. I was told that for sending any doucments my name would have to be registered and that was the reason I gave all my details - that doesnt mean I have given my consent for the policy.

If according to sbi the documents were sent with my consent for the same on telephone - I hereby demand that the voice log should be heard, including myself and sbi officials, and proved that I actually gave my consent for the same failing which I am not liable to pay for any dues

Further I also got a call from sbi gurgaon on 20 or 21st of october that my issue has been resolved and full reversal was made to my account and that the same will be reflected in my next statement... still why I am being sent letters...
Cant that be verifed from your records.

I am again stating that you cannot force a cutomer to take the policy without customers approval for the same and if any billing is disputed the same should be reolved to the satisfaction of the customer - this according to me should be the policy of sbi.

Also till the matter is under dispute please ensure that no more letters are sent to my employer as this again is diminishing my personal standards.


waiting for your early revert.

Thanks

Sonu thaker

Dear mam,

Thank you for your revert.

Please note as mentioned by you and as explained by me again and again, when I got a call from telemarketing person regarding the policy the details of the policy, I requested him that I cannot remember the points of the policy if told to me verbally, hence if there was some documentation that I was provided, I can go through the same & then think whether or not to opt for this policy. here please note that I did not at any point of time gave my confirmation that I was interested in the policy.
I was told that for sending any documents he would have to register me and for that he would require my details and did not at any point told me that I will be receiving any kind of bills for payments and that my policy would start without my confirmation (you can refer the telephonic talk I had with concerned dept)

I gave my details totally unaware of the trauma and the harrasment I was going to face for giving my details for the same.
Again I would here like to add - if I was given a 15 days lookup time for the policy, and if I didnt confirm the same within 15 days - why was I not called up for confirming that the policy has started and I will be receiving the bills for the premiums??? what if I was not in town and was unable to contact sbi or royal sundaram??? what if I had not recd the documents in time - had anybody called up whether I have recd the documents and gone through it and whether I was interested in the policy in the first place??? this doesnt mean that now I will have to take this policy forcibly and make payments for premiums.

Again whatever half reversals or anything has nothing to do with me and it is purely between royal sundaram and sbi and I am not going to suffer because of the goofup made by some person from any of the concerned dept.

I already have suffered and harrased a lot for the issue and my family members have even being threatened for this and if the same is not resolved soon - I will see to it that I will go legal and claim compensation for the harrassment going on from past 8 months now.

I again humbly request you to close the issue.

Thanks
Sonu thaker

Subject: dispute for card no : [protected] - sonu thaker

Dear sir / mam,

It seems you have not gone through my mail properly. firstly where you have mentioned as "speaking to your telesales person and post your confirmation" - I want to know when and how I have confirmed for this policy?? do you have any papers with my signatures confirming the same?? or any phone conversations wherein I have confirmed to opt for the policy???

Also please note you telesales person described the features of the policy over the phone and I had just asked him to send me documents for the same so that I can go through the same and then decide whether or not to opt for the policy... and that doesnt mean that I wanted the policy. please note I didnt confirm that I wanted the policy and your telesales guy also didnt tell me that sending me the documents, I will be billed for the same.
Infact I was informed that you will have to revert back after some 15-20 days if you want to opt for the policy - hence my question is why was I not been informed or called before debiting any kind of charges on my card???
Also you are not doing any favour to me by reversing half of the charges as I want all my charges to be reversed as I didnt confirm the policy and have not made any other transactions on sbi card.
Where you have stated that my card is blocked - I want to inform you that I have already cut my card and have handed over to sbi representative on 09.06.07.

You just cannot force anyone like this and sell your products and compell him to pay amounts for which one is not liable for.

Anyways further this is to inform you that I am not going to make any payments unless I am not provided with the explanations and proofs that I have asked for.

Or else send me name and address of your senior person / legal person with whom I can discuss this issue in person.

Thanks & regards,
Sonu thaker

Ps : by the way wish your team a very happy diwali.

Dear mr. thaker,

This is with reference to your communication dated november 05, 2007 regarding your sbi card account.

We would like to inform you that as per your telephonic discussion with out telesales executive and post your confirmation, royal sundaram insurance was been booked on your sbi card account.

We would like to inform you that rs.3457.00 towards royal sundaram insurance has been reversed on your sbi card account. the credit for the same is reflecting in the statement dated june 17, 2007.
Please note that as your request was received post 30 days of the transaction and as per the terms and conditions of the royal sundaram insurance policy we regret our inability to provide you with more reversals on your card account and also the administration charges are not reversed.
Further we wish to share with you that as against the outstanding balance of rs.6268.92 billed in your statement of account dated july 17, 2007, please note that we did not receive any payment before the payment due date, thereby your card account was levied with finance and late payment charges.

Kindly note that in case the payments are missed or outstanding on the card is received less than the total amount due, then interest charges are applied on the balance amount, thus the payment starts revolving on the account, this is also applicable on all the fresh charges incurred, in the same month by the cardholder.

Hence, we regret to inform you that we are unable to reverse any charges levied to your card account. as on date, your card account holds an outstanding balance of rs.8478.33 payable to us and we would request you to send in the payment for the same at the earliest, to avoid further charges.

Kindly note that as on date your account is temporarily blocked.


In case of any further clarification, we request you to reply at head. [protected]@ge.com using the same subject line. you will receive a response within 3 working days.

Dear mr. ajay bharti,

Further to your mail dated 31/05/2007 regarding resolving of the issue in the below mentioned mail for policy for royal sundaram – please note the following –

There was one representative sent to my residence on 09/06/2007 for payment collection that too without calling me or contacting me. on asking reason to mr. sanjay chougle (officer collections) for sending the person directly to my residence I was told that your number was not available or busy whereas I had recd en number of call on that day. anyways on explaining him the whole issue he told me to send the copies of the mail sent to you alongwith a request for cancellation of my card. the same day I had handover the mail copies and 8 pieces of card’s (mine as well as my wifes ad-on cards) to the representative after assurance that the matter will be closed off.

Months later after the above was done, I again started getting calls from sbi for payments. on asking again I was informed that only half of my charges were reversed and I still have to pay half of the amounts plus the interest levied. here even I was not notified by any sbi rep or mr. sanjay chougle that only half of the amounts are reversed and the reasons for half reversal and was told that the same has been printed on the account statement sent to you.

Thereafter I was told to make complaint to sbi once again for the issue and on 24.09.07 I made a complaint for the same and had a talk with ms. preeti and the complaint number is - [protected].

My complaint is –

Why wasn’t I called for confirmation of the policy before debiting the charges to my credit card a/c - did sbi or royal sundaram at any point of time gave me a call for the confirmation of the policy??? – if so please let me know the proof of the same.

Please show me any proof bearing signatures on any of the documentation regarding the policy???
- as according to the talk with the representatives it is not possible to debit any charges without having the same.

I was told that you would be getting a response regarding the complaint within 10 days. but again I have started getting calls from sbi regarding payments. but after calling your number again I was informed that nothing can be done on the issue and you will have to pay outstanding dues.

Over and above this for en number of calls I have made on this issue I was never been transferd to any senior person whom I can contact and resolve this issue.

On 25/10/07 again I got a call from sbi andheri midc branch and spoke to a so called senior person mr. deepak roy (tel no. [protected]) and explained him the whole story again. he assured me that he will be looking into the matter and resolve the issue. but again when I contacted the branch I was not made to speak to him and was told that he was transferred and in a very rude manner was told that this things will go on if you don’t pay your dues.

On 03/11/07 I got a letter from sbi stating if I didn’t pay the dues they will be contacting my employer and i’ll have to face the consequences.

After all this mental stress and harrasment I have now decided to go legal if the matter is not closed down and I also hereby inform you that I may sue sbi for the mental harrasement given to me from such a long period of time and including my family and my employer in the same and defaming my character.

Please go through few of the following points which are imposed by rbi ombudsman for credit card grieviences –

Interest rates and other charges :
The bank / nbfc should not levy any charge that was not explicitly indicated to the credit card holder at the time of issue of the card and getting his / her consent. however, this would not be applicable to charges like service taxes, etc. which may subsequently be levied by the government or any other statutory authority.

Wrongful billing :
The card issuing bank / nbfc should ensure that wrong bills are not raised and issued to customers.in case, a customer protests any bill, the bank / nbfc should provide explanation and, if necessary, documentary evidence to the customer within a maximum period of sixty days with a spirit to amicably redress the grievances.

Right to privacy :
Unsolicited loans or other credit facilities should not be offered to the credit card customers.in case, an unsolicited credit facility is extended without the consent of the recipient and the latter objects to the same, the credit sanctioning bank / nbfc shall not only withdraw the credit limit, but also be liable to pay such penalty as may be considered appropriate.

Fair practices in debt collection :
In the matter of recovery of dues, banks / nbfcs may ensure that they, as also their agents, adhere to the extant instructions on fair practice code for lenders (circular dbod. leg. no. bc. 104 /09.07.007 / 2002–03 dated may 5, 2003) as also iba’s code for collection of dues and repossession of security.in case banks / nbfcs have their own code for collection of dues it should, at the minimum, incorporate all the terms of iba's code.
Banks / nbfcs / their agents should not resort to intimidation or harassment of any kind, either verbal or physical, against any person in their debt collection efforts, including acts intended to humiliate publicly or intrude the privacy of the credit card holders’ family members, referees and friends, making threatening and anonymous calls or making false and misleading representations.

Redressal of grievances :
If a complainant does not get satisfactory response from the bank / nbfc within a maximum period of thirty (30) days from the date of his lodging the complaint, he will have the option to approach the office of the concerned banking ombudsman for redressal of his grievance/s. the bank / nbfc shall be liable to compensate the complainant for the loss of his time, expenses, financial loss as well as for the harassment and mental anguish suffered by him for the fault of the bank and where the grievance has not been redressed in time.


According to the points imposed by rbi, I am very much liable to get compensation as I was not at any point of time given any valid proofs, documentations etc and was not satisfactorily answered for my complaint raised with sbi instead am threatened to pay dues for which I am not liable to pay.


This is the last time I am mailing to sort out the issue once and for all and send me a letter stating no dues from my side.

Hoping a favourable reply from you end as well as from royal sundaram regarding this issue.

Thanks and regards,
Sonu thaker

Subject: dispute for card no : [protected] - sonu thaker

Dear mr. ajay bharti,

My name is sonu thaker and my credit card no is [protected]. I am writing this e-mail to you in regards to the issue I am facing from your collection team regarding insurance charges from royal sundaram.

Some days after I got my sbi card, I had got a call from your executive regarding this insurance policy that you were offering. the executive told me many things about it and was too lengthy to remember each and every point about it. hence I told him that if possible can I get some documents regarding the same so that I can go through it and then decide whether or not to opt for the policy. your executive told me that for documents to be sent, he will have to register me for the same and I gave all my details unaware of the problems and the trauma I will be facing. after getting the documents I called up local number and instructed that I don’t want to opt for the policy and not to send me any bills regarding the same.

After some time I got a call from executive regarding the minimum amount that is payable for the bill sent to me. I told them that, I had already instructed not to send me any bills and hence wanted the charges to be reversed. but after talking to en number of executives and supervisors the same thing was not resolved. earlier even nobody was aware of what these charges were for and they just kept on telling me that you have made some purchases and you will have to pay the money and we will be sending our persons to collect the same. even after requesting them to transfer the lines to some superior person with whom I can speak to.. I was always told that you can speak with us and we will be resolving the same.

I am getting calls on a daily basis for the same thing. most of the names are neha, gagan deep singh, anup, rudra pratap singh etc etc etc…. once I also had talk with pravin who claimed that he is the supervisor and he assured me that he will look into the matter and resolve the same and I will not be getting any calls from sbi.

From last one month I have been getting calls from your collection department practically early morning each day – to my mobile as well as my residence number.

On 29/05/07 (yesterday) I got a call from rudra pratap singh who is an executive at your gurgaon or noida office (tel no from which I receive call is +[protected] / +[protected]). he started the conversation that – “oh you are the same person who has disputes regarding the policy” – I had got several calls from that guy earlier and he very well knew what the issue was. I asked him if you know the issue why are you calling me up again and again and irritating me – doesn’t you bank cost anything calling up a guy in mumbai from delhi – his reply was that it is free for us. that answer hit me and I told him that because you have free calls to make you keep on harassing us – his reply was “ aapko shoukh hai outstanding rakne ka”.
That very moment I lost my temper and gave him bad words (I am really sorry for that – as it was just out of frustration for receiving the same calls again and again on a daily basis) as he was not ready to keep the phone and was arguing illogically. seeing this my manager who was also aware of this calls being made to me daily also got frustrated, snatched the phone from my hands – gave bad words and told him to close the call. he also told him that “ did bank gave you bad words before issuing the card to you “
After I disconnected the call this guy again called up and asked me to use bad words and told me that he was enjoying it. I again disconnected the call after fulfilling his request.

After this rudra pratap singh called my residence number and threatened my parents that he will be sending some guys for collections and that you son will not be spared. after this call my dad (who is also working in bank of baroda) who has just been through a bypass surgery was so tensed and his bp rose to a very high level that he needed medical attention and he also didn’t go to work.

Sir…this came as a real shock to me and now I have also decided that if this situation continues, I was also go for legal help. I am also a senior officer in collections dept in an nbfc firm. I also know how money is collected …. but certainly not in this manner…what has my family to do with this issues…why are they being threatened and harassed???
As far as I understand.. if premium has not been paid the policy gets automatically dissolved and I am not supposed to make any claims on that …you cannot force anybody to use the policy if they don’t want to!!

I am using icici card / hsbc card for a very long time now and am a regular payer. you can check the same if required. since my brother (who is an asst manager in centurion bank of punjab) is using sbi card and that there are a lot of good things that the card offers I opted for this card. but now I am cursing myself and the day when I chose to go for this card.

My only reason to write this big mail is that there are some systems and process and sbi as the name is enough doesn’t seem to follow it or maybe executives like rudra pratap singh are spoiling the name of such an esteemed organization.

I want an reply on the above issue and also for your as well as the company benefit …I would prefer some strict action is taken against executives like rudra pratap singh.

I have already called up you customer service number again and have informed them of the incidences and have instructed them to cancel my royal sundaram policy and my complaint numer is [protected].

I am very much upset about the whole issue and am very much frustrated with the way your guys speak to cutomers…once again I am requesting you to instruct your collection dept not to call up my residence number as they already have my cell number and can speak at any time with me in person. I was looking forward to use sbi card and to use the great offers that they give but the above incidence has not left me with any other alternative then to cancel the card.

Expecting a favorable response from you and customer service team.

Thanking you,

Sonu thaker

    I have being wrongly levied charges for promotional Insurance offer given to me without my consent of opting for the same.
    I am being sent legal letters and am being threatened that my matter will be taken to court for charges which i am not liable to pay. There are no proper responses given and senior officials as well as the tele calling reps have a rude attitude.

Dear madam,

Information under right to information act

Case id=002-455-833application no [protected] for sbi card

I am to state that I had applied for state bank of india credit card on 12th january 2008 vide application no [protected]. I telephoned sbi toll free no [protected] in regard to the status of my application and I was told that my application has been rejected on 20th february 2008.

The rejection of the application put me to great shock and disappointment, my financial creditability had come to stake. therefore I sent an email to sbi cards dated february 28, 2008 to know the reason for the rejection.

But in their reply to me I was informed that sbi decision of not accepting my proposal for issuance of card is a business decision. and that their business decision was taken in good faith and they reserve their right to enter or not to enter into a business relationship with any person and any decision in this regard, being prerogative of the bank and does not call for any explanation. they instructed me to write an email to
avp, customer
Service,
Head. [protected]@ge.com
Credit cards section head. [protected]@ge.com

But I got a similar reply from there. I am to state that sbi is a public sector organisation and I am also working in a public sector organisation. sbi cards does not issue cards in good faith and every decision has a solid reasoning. I am not satisfied with their reply and would like to know the reason for rejection of my application.

I have an account in sbi no [protected] (sector 7-c) chandigarh branch
I want to know if my application has been rejected on the grounds that I am listed as a defaulter in the list of credit information bureau [india] ltd (cibil) which bank has posted me as defaulter if sbi has taken decision based on their report they being member of cibil can provide me the copy of the report or the information as to which member bank has posted me as defaulter

. the bank should inform me the reason of rejection of my application.
I am enclosing bankers cheque no 667956 dated: 14.03.2008 of state bank of india sector 7 c chandigarh for rs10/- as requiste fee under right to information act.

Thanking you,

Cordially yours,

    To
    The Chairman
    SBI.,

    Dear Sir,
    As per my complaint send to you through e-mail regarding scrutiny of my transaction in the period of 2005 and 2006, due to which my Rs 45, 200/- sum of money has gone in vain, I am not satisfied with the statement which you have send to me on 19th Sep 08 because of the following reasons :

    1)You have mentioned the same ATM Card number for the two account numbers, i.e.A/c no:11094091259 have ATM card number 2985 as well as 35050, .
    But, infact A/c no11094091259 have ATM card no:6220180123500035050
    and A/c no:11094082733 have ATM Card no:6220180123500002985

    2) Now, the problem lies in the time of withdrawal . According to your statement, you have mentioned that, the money was withdrawn at about midnight which is impossible for me . i.e. Rs15000/- withdrawn on 21st Apr2005 at 21:35:29 hours, next, Rs10, 000/- was withdrawn on 15th july 2005 at 23:39:16 hours and finally, Rs 5000/-was withdrawn on 7th May 2005 at 23:44:31 hours .

    3) If, money has been withdrawn, then you should have been given the names and branch of the ATMs . Then, I would have inquired it.

    Please look up the matter very Seriously from your side, and please convey to the higher authority because its the matter of my HARD EARNED money .Please give due respect to it and I expect some positive results at the earliest.

    Yours faithfully

fraud and always deliver wrong information

Business associates of sbi card called me several time, offering Encash amount on card.On their undue pressure, i accepted.They sent me the charges different from told by bank.
Although, i paid excess amount of total unbilled amount well before time.Then also, they penalised me and charged late fine at next statement.I told them that my account statement shows much balance at advance, they argued badly and told to pay more and the advance credited amount could not be adjusted.you have to spent on purchases the credit amount.
Is this not a fraud? I paid rs 4000 instead of rs 2000 in advance of next EMI.Then also levy interest charges on my adavance amount from me.This is a great "GUNDAGARDI"

I did not receive monthly statement

I have a problem with the monthly bill statement. Earlier I used to receive couple of days before the due date. However I used to pay the amount to avoid late payment. But this time it is ridiculous I paid the due amount but till now I didnot receive my monthly statement. If this gonna happen again I will deactivate my account. Earlier I lodged complaint stating that am not receiving my monthly statement on time. However your executive person assured that he will not repeat it again. But still there is no change infact it has become worst.
Hence I kindly request you to send statement as soon as possible.

slow working of employees

dear sir, with due respect i want to state that i have deposited a Axis bank, Bhagalpur branch'...

transaction declined, amount debited from account

I have a SB account with SBI-Redfields Branch, Coimbatore. I used SBI atm card in Canara bank and Punjab...

fraud at sbi

This may be weird, but this actually have happened and guess who the "bad boy" is - yes the SBI's. One fine day during November '06 I got a phone call from SBI that a transaction have been made on a card owned by me. I immediately showed them a surprise as the card they were talking about never landed to me. Needless to say they registered a case of Fraud in the cards fate.

I immediately wrote a mail to "feedback.[protected]@ge.com" and "head.[protected]@ge.com" providing the information in written. Again to the surprise, except for the automated replies not a single reply came from there end till date.

During the start of the year 2007, I contacted few of their so called "supervisors" and expressed my Grievance that inspite of not having the card and a so-called fraud case going in its name, why should I receive a statement every month. Their reply was to ignore such statements and continue with them for some time as long they can settle the matter.

Starting mid-of-the-year the real pictures was unfolded and their so-called recovery agents started calling me. Literally at some point of time I actually had to spoke the same story for 2-3 times a day.

On conveying this to the SBI heads once again, told me to once again ignore such calls and they will put up a inter-office notice on the issue.

All was going right till yesterday when I got a call from a SBI lawyer (Serior advocate Mr. K L. Pradhan - [protected]) that they are putting a case with the police about the whole thing. I told Mr.Pradhan of the year long story once again. To my surprise once again, he was not aware of the proceeding and told me that he is going to look into the matter with SBI headoffice. I immediately talked with a SBI "supervisor" (Mr Milind this time) and pressed him to look into the matter unless I will have no option other than to approach the media or consumer court.

Mr.Milind assured to solve this within the next two days.

Need advice to what to do.

sbi card payment

Hello,

I regret to inform you my experience with SBI card. This is complete unprofessional.

From long time I was interacting with SBI card officiate for reversing the wrong entry and payment from my account and initially there was no response.

Suddenly, i have received on letter dated 7.7.07(Copy Attached herewith) from SBI about one time full and final settlement of Rs.4397.66/-. i was advised to pay this amount for closure of the case. I was also advised to withdraw all dispute in the case.

Accordingly, on 7.7.07 itself I have paid Rs.4398/- in cash (receipt is attached herewith).

Now the case is after the payment also I am receiving payment statement. I have contacted your local office in nashik and mentioned to them this concern. I got the answer saying that the office takes time to settle the account in the system and I need not to worry about this statement.

This month also I have received the statement including all late charges and tax payment.

I consider this as cheating to the customer. This is not acceptable.
I can't believe that your system takes one years time to get data updated.

I hereby advise you to stop sending payment statement as the matter is settled and closed.

If I receive next statement I will take the matter to the legal appropriate authority including police case putting specific names included in this dealing.

All copies are attached herewith for your ready reference. Pleas get back with immediate action and close the matter.

    I am just new to SBI card and I was surpraised to get the first month statement with some stupid charges to pay, even before the card delivery. SBI just does not care customers. Looks like SBI sole purpose is to grab money as much as possible by unethical means. I am sick of the card within a month and got it cancelled. My sincere advice is please be away as much as you can from SBI sick services.

    SBI card authorities,
    This is complaint mail regarding your bill delivering and your helpline executives.
    Bill for the month of august I have not received at my address. But on your system it shows that it was being delivered at my house & received by my family member. On that time I will paid the Rs. 5500 before date due to expenditure ideas. Whereever the bil was Rs. 5640. In that case Rs. 140 will be unpaid. On this amount your bank wil charge approximately Rs. 74 as financial charge. For this I have contact your helpline but they refuse to make the reversal of that amount. Now I want the reversal of that amount i.e. Rs. 74. Kindly make the attention on my previous record and I am more than 3 years old customer of card.
    Please send the reply as soon as possible so that I can make the payment in time. You will inform me my mobile number which is 9899384900 & 9958041669. you will also inform me on my e-mail id which is [email protected]
    Thank You.
    In hoping and waiting for the reversal

mis-guide & mis-comunicating to customer

This is the Incident of March 13th 2007, where as I received a call from SBI Chennai Collection department (Namely the person is Mr. Kartick A)to make the minimum payment against my O/s. However I agreed to make the minimum payment & also I request him to convert the balance ammount in EMI whatever the O/s or dues remain after making this minimum payment. At that time my O/s was Rs. 21,062.77/-

We both were agreed on the condition that I have to pay Rs. 1265/- till one year whose total will come Rs. 15,180/-. Further I ask him that "if I pay Rs. 15,180/- through EMI then what I have to do with the remaining balance from Rs. 21,062/-". He replied that "You can pay that balance amount at any time in that particular year".

After discusion he gave me his contact number which is [protected] Extn. 151 and [protected] and also suggest a name (Mr. Vamsi) to contact in future if I face any kind of problem in this regards. He also give a me a PIN number [protected]) to quote at Customer care for future communication.

I was very happy that the SBI understand the problems of the Customer and its a best cards in India.

According to the discussion I made the payment frquently till five month of Rs. 1200/- aprox. But when I seen my credit card statement I was surprise that it's showing Rs. 19,342.16/- whereas I expected it would be Rs. 15,062.77 or if its add some interest also it's comes Rs. 16,562.77/-.

Well I got some doubt on the statment & I immediatly rang up to Mr. Kartick on August at above mention Telephone Number from Hyderabad where I found that some body pickup the call & put the receiver on hold till 10-15 minutes and thenafter they disconnect the call without any response. I tried this number sevral time but the response was same.

Then I speak to the Customer Care & inform him the full story where he answered me that whatever the discussion was happened with Mr. Kartick on March was not processed. It is rather shocking me.

Well the communication was going on with Customer Care Executive suddenly my cell phone was disconnected due to bad network and I tried to approch that person but I was fail to contact him again.

But again what I seen in my next statement (September), that the Customer Care Executive had converted some amount of Rupees in EMI from Rs. 19,342.16 from his own wish for which I had not been informed or rather agreed.

Till December I made the payment of Rs. 1852/-, 3800/- then I ask for settlement of my Credit card from Collection Department and aslo send a mail to feedback.[protected]@ge.com as I am receiving a call from them every day to make the minmum payment.

Now its Feb 2008 (In between Dec - Feb) I do spoke with so many Collection Exceutive whose name are Mr. Mahesh, Mr. Imran Khan and many more. They are promising me to make the minmum payment and my account will settle in One Week. Till now I had made the payment of Rs. 2000/-, and Rs. 1850/- to SBI but still now I had not been received any call from SBI for settlement.

But when I speak to Customer Care regarding this they said those who are informed or promised to you for settlement of your Credit Card ask them only to settle the A/c. I had been also tried to approch them from my Cell phone but the thing is only their welcome music is playing while I am making the call.

I had been also forwarded this complaint via mail to head.[protected]@ge.com & feedback.[protected]@ge.com on 17th Jan 2008 but still I had not received any response from them also.

This is what they (GE-SBI) are doing Unproffesional & Unfair business with customer.

telephonic harrassment even after depositing full payment cheque in sbi drop box

Dear Sir,
I am lodging a complaint through this e-mail about the telephonic harassment by SBI. The current dated cheque No.005468 of Rs34500, drawn on SBI, Main Branch Gondia, Maharastra, for the payment due on 7th February 2008 against my SBI Credit card number [protected] was dropped in the drop box of SBI branch, Malad(E), Mumbai on 3rd Feb. 2008. A week after that , one of my acquaintance, I call him Uncle, started getting 2-3 phone calls a day asking for the payment. I used the same number as my contact number. Every time he told the SBI executive, that the cheque has already been deposited. So far he has received more than 20 calls in15 days. Those executives were unable to tell the status of the cheque deposited on 3rd Feb. and instead asking for one more cheque of the same amount advising me to stop payment of the previous cheque. Presently I am out of country, cant stop the payment of earlier cheque. How can I make the due payment twice. Even if i make the payment in case of misplaced cheque, they should send me an e-mail stating the fact and assuring not to en cash the previous cheque after I issue a new cheque.

I therefore request the grievances cell of RBI to please look into the matter urgently to stop this harassment by SBI.

Thanking you

Vijay Kumar Bisen

credit card rejected always

I have applied for sbi credit cards two times in a year, they have taken all the important documents, after some days I recieved verification call on my cell and also on my landline numbers etc. After that I got sms that your request has been proceeded, after that I recieved another sms that your card is rejected due to some reasons. I called their customer care and ask for reason but they are not ready to give any reason of rejection. Then again after 7 months I applied and again same procedure happened. They always says that now this time it will be approved and everytime they rejected, atleast they can provide me the reasons so that next time I will take care of that.
