How to Close Janata Bank Ltd. Account?
Before you can close your bank account there is one thing that you should make sure of. And that is about the negative balance in your bank account. If you have any kind of negative balance in your bank account. Then the bank will not allow you to close the account. And that is the reason why you should clear the negative balance. You can deposit funds in your account to pay off the negative balance.
The only method to close the bank account is by visiting the branch of the bank. I recommend you visit the branch from where you had opened your account with Janata Bank Ltd. You have to visit the branch and collect an account closing application form. It is recommended to use this application form.
