Open Online Saving Bank Account in SBI

3. There are two sections in this application form – customer information and account information section. Fill all the relevant mandatory details with PAN and nomination in the application form and hit on ‘Proceed’ button.

A Customer should read all the terms and conditions for opening an account which is written in an application form.

After filling all the required details, print this form. A Temporary Customer Reference Number (TCRN) will be made by the system which will be mentioned on the printed copy of the application.  For your kind information, I would like to note down about TCRN.

What is TCRN?

When you apply online to open an account, System (Computer) generates a number and send to you on the mobile number you have written on the Application form for confirmation purpose. This number is TCRN (Temporary Customer Reference Number). When you proceed further, you need to fill up the number to prove your identity. You should note by the customer for further use.  An SMS regarding  TCRN will be also sent to customer’s mobile number.

Enclose two recent passport size color photographs and documents related to proof of  address and identity as mentioned in an application form with this printed copy of an application and submit it at the relevant branch of State Bank of India.

After submission of online application, you must visit your relevant branch with all documents within maximum thirty days otherwise your information will be deleted from data of bank, and you will have to again fill the online application form to Open Online Saving Bank Account in SBI

Will I face any problem when I go to the selected SBI Branch without the printed documents of opening Saving Bank Account whereas TCRN & TARN is with me. I really trust SBI that its customers will never be disappointed whenever they express any type of problem & difficulty to any staff of SBI. That is why, please let me know the correct procedures for opening online SBI account for the benefit of your clients considering humble plight of mine. Thanking you so much & I am rest assured that you will surely guide me for this.
