Auto Sweep in SBI

POSTED BY Vibhav Nayak ON November 20, 2012 10:31 am COMMENTS (3)

Dear Manish,

After reading your article “Why you should enable Auto Sweep in your
Bank Account” I have decided to convert my SBI Savings Account (Family
Joint) with Auto Sweep facility. For this I was searching on the SBI
site and came across 2 options from

1) Personal Banking>>Deposit Schemes>>Premium Savings Account
2) Personal Banking>>Deposit Schemes>>Savings Bank Account>>Savings Plus Account

I am actually confused between these two. As per your article, 2
things which are important are:
1) Min balance (For Premium Savings Account it is Nil, Savings Plus
Account it looks to be 5000)
2) Threshold limit

The various add-ons as per Premium Savings description, have actually
become Null and Void in todays scenario I believe, such as:
1) Anywhere Banking: Inter-core transactions will be allowed with 25%
concession in the prescribed service charges.
2) 50% concession in draft issue charges and cheque collection charges
3) TTs/ Bankers Cheques will be issued free (out of pocket expenses
for TTs will be recovered).
4) No service charges in respect of outward RTGS/ NEFT transactions.

Kindly advice if you can find suitable difference between Premium
Savings and Savings Plus Accounts and kindly guide as to which is more

  1. What exactly is more important and requirement for you ?

      You are right! I think Savings Plus account meets my requirement, and hence I should go with it rather than bother with the minute details.. Thanks Manish!

    2. Vibhav Nayak says:


      In this case, how will SBI deduct TDS on FD’s created under Auto-Sweep Facility? Whether they deduct TDS at the time of sweep-in (i.e at the time of withdrawing money from the account) or at the time of maturity?

      And if they deducted TDS, how will I know about this deduction?
