SBI account: You have time till February 28 and if you don't do this, your account in State Bank of India will get non-operational. For any bank, maintaining a record of information about its customers is of great importance. It helps the bank better serve its customers and also prevent frauds and other financial irregularities. In recent years, banks have been more vigilant in keeping records updated and they call for many rounds of KYC (Know Your Customer). Account-holders are expected to make updates, if required, in their personal details with the bank. If this is not done, banks may be compelled to deactivate the account, much to the loss of the account holder.
