RBI New Rule On Negative Balance: There was a time when one had to stand in line for hours to complete bank related work. But ever since smartphones have arrived and banking services have gone online, almost all bank related work is done on the phone. However, this has also created some problems. Many people have now started keeping more than one bank account. This has made it difficult to maintain minimum balance and in many situations the balance even goes into minus.

In such a situation, if you ask the bank to close the account, then you are asked to pay the amount which is in minus. But, now the Reserve Bank of India has worked to provide relief to the customers facing such situations. According to the new rules of RBI, if you have not maintained the minimum balance then it can become zero but banks cannot make it minus by charging interest on it.
