How to close second PPF account ?

POSTED BY Kshitij_Peter ON October 15, 2014 11:01 am COMMENTS (2)


I recently (Jan 14) transferred my PPF account from a post office to my SBI bank.

In June, I saw that I have a new account number in my onlinesbi portal, which I thought was my EPF account.  I credit some amount in that account.

Now I discovered that I have 2 PPF accounts one which I see in my onlinesbi and another one which was transferred from post office to bank.

As far as I know, we can not have 2 ppf accounts. So now who should be the one initiating the closure of the second account. I stay in Mumbai and rarely travel to my place(where I have my SBI account) on working days.

Please  let me know the process/steps to close the PPF account.

    I had raised a complaint but the General Manager said only PF office can close the account and I stay in Mumbai and my account is in Nagpur(took me almost 6 months to transfer from Post Office to Bank). Not able to get anything on the internet about contact details/location of PF office.

    Approach the bank and ask them how a new account was created while u transferred only one account…. I think this can be done @ bank only….

    However, just raise a complaint in grievance cell stating the same…. hope it will be closed without going to bank
