Today I went to SBI miyapur (Hyderabad, AndhraPradesh) to get a locker. Branch employees said lockers are available and that I should deposit 2lakh in my account to get the new locker.
Since I have only 1.5L in my account, I requested branch manager to allot a small sized locker with 1.5 lakh deposit. I have account in my home town (Avanigadda, Krishna dist 521120, AndhraPradesh), He asked me about the home branch of my account, He rejected my request saying lockers are not available.
I came out and the bank employees are issuing new lockers to other customers and the employees are still saying lockers are available.
I have few questions.
Does SBI has any standard procedure for allotting the lockers to the customers?
Is it at the sole discretion of the branch manager to allot the lockers?
