Before you take steps to close your bank account you have to make sure that you have an alternative bank account. If you don’t have one then you should open a new one. In case you already have an alternative bank account, then there is no need to open a new one.

After that, if you have any dues or negative balance in your account. Then you have to clear all the dues in your account. The bank will not allow you to close the account until you clear the dues in your account. If you want to close the account on call then you have to bring your balance down to zero.
