    Although it sounds quite a smart way to transfer money, in big cities, relatively few people have accounts in SBI. Most people use SBI accounts only to open a PPF a/c I guess. So this method should be introduced by banks like ICICI, HDFC, Axis, Kotak, etc. to make it more popular in big cities. But it is good for those who already have an a/c in SBI.

    My relative’s boss has a son in IIT Bombay. Needs to transfer money to him from Gandhinagar in Gujarat. So he has to go via my bank account. If they had an SBI a/c, he could just walk in to the closest SBI ATM and collect the remittance. Good idea!
