  23. Dear Sir

    I have opened an a/c under “Pradhan-mantri Jan Dhan Yojna” in Bank of Baroda “Mullanpur, Garibdas, Punjab” Branch on 16/12/2014 . Account no awarded to me is 46470100002705.

    When I asked for Over draft facility to the bank manager he told me that you will get this facility from your native place only. So I transferred this a/c to Palwal Branch On 21’ Oct 2015, as I am permanent resident of Distt Palwal, Haryana.

    When I visited Palwal branch of Bank of Baroda The bank manager very rudely behaved with me and denied to give me the over drafting facility.

    I made a complaint through BOB net banking (Complaint no 101103), but they only replied to visit the home branch Manager. I again went to the Branch Manager but he again refused to assist me. He said that “ You had made complaint, now I will see who will do your work”. There is a Madam Mrs Rajesh also who misbehaved me.

    Sir, I belong to a poor farmer family and I require this facility very badly. So you are herein requested to please look into the matter and do to me the required favour.

  24. Dear sir ,

    I want to open a bank branch for particular PMJDY a/c opening through any bank who have authority to give PMJDY a/c
