The process is very simple and you can make it even more simple by preparing your account to be closed. There are two things you need to take care of.
The first thing is you have to check your account balance. And you have to make sure that there are no negative balances or pending dues in the account.

If you don’t do this then all your payments will start failing once your account is closed by Avidia Bank. And the thing you should make a note of here is. This is not the bank’s responsibility but yours.
