Steps to Transfer SBI Account by Branch Visit

(1) Visiting the Home Branch with Required Documents

To transfer your SBI Bank Account, you first need to visit the home branch i.e., the Branch where you have your Bank Account.

Do remember to carry the documents mentioned below before visiting the Branch :

(a) An application to the Branch Manager mentioning your Account Details and that you want to change your Branch. Do check your details on your Application like Name on Account, Account Number, Old Branch and New Branch.

(b) Copy of Address Proof (If you want to Change your Address on the Account). You can submit a copy of Address Proof documents like Aadhaar Card, Voter ID Card, Passport, Bank Passbook etc. (Check the list of all the Address Proof documents accepted by SBI)

(c) Copy of Pan Card

(d) Original Bank Passbook (Not Mandatory). Just in case the Bank Officials ask for you Bank Passbook, you must carry your Bank Passbook with you.

(2) Handing over the Documents to the Branch Manager in Home Branch

After checking all your documents, you need to self attest(Put your Signature) on the your Address and ID proof (PAN Card) documents. Hand over these documents to the Branch Manager along with the Application of Branch Change. Show your Bank Passbook to the Branch Manager if asked for it.

(3) Visiting the New Branch and Completing the Formalities

Usually within 1-3 days time your home branch will transfer your Bank Account to the new Branch. Finally, you need to visit your New Branch(Where your account has been transferred). You can confirm if your Bank Account has been transferred or not. Once confirmed, you can update your Address on your Bank Passbook (If you have shifted to a new Address).

  18. Hi Akshay,

    It is not necessary to get a new passbook when you transfer your sbi account. Instead, you can update your new address and all details on your old passbook only. Usually the bank updates the ifsc code automatically in the other person’s account if he has added you as a beneficiary. Still it is advisable to receive funds on the new ifsc only.
