How to Close MCB Bank Account?

This guide is for the customers of the MCB Bank who have made the decision to close the bank account. No matter in which country you are currently living. You will need an account to deposit and transact using your money. In this guide, I will tell you the steps to be followed to close MCB Bank account.

There can be so many reasons why you might have taken the decision to close the account. Some people will have personal reasons and some others will have professional reasons. Whatever the reason might be but before you start the process. You should make sure you have an alternative bank account with you.

If you don’t have an alternative bank account, then spare some time and open a new account. Find out the banks that are operating in your country. Select a bank and ask these questions to the bank. If you find the answers given by the bank officials satisfactory. Then you can open the account with them.

The major thing you should take care of is there should be no dues or negative balance in your MCB Bank account. In case you have any you should first clear those. And then begin the process to close the account. This is because the banks will not allow the customers to close the account without clearing the dues and negative balance.

The next thing is you have to make your bank account balance zero. You can do this by transferring all your balance to your alternative bank account. I recommend you to do this only on the day you are closing the account. Do not do this in advance as this might attract some charges if you don’t maintain sufficient balance.
