NEFT charges

In July, the RBI had waived off all charges on fund transfer through NEFT, but there are still some banks who take charges on such transfers. The good news is that the RBI has proposed to mandate banks to make all online NEFT transactions free for savings bank account customers from January 2020. At present, banks like State Bank of India (SBI), ICICI Bank and HDFC do not charge anything for online NEFT.
