    I only want to know that after opening my account and submitting all the documents in bank. i go to collect my passbook and they said that your account is not opened and there will be a welcome letter come to your home after which account is opened.
    is it true or they are making fool of me…

  17. Hi Aman,

    They are right. Some banks like Punjab National Bank, Bank of Baroda etc have started sending a welcome letter at the Address. As a lot of people used to open Bank Accounts with fake Address Proofs, this step has been added by some of the banks.
