How to Change Address in Indian Overseas Bank Account?

If you have changed the place where you live or I can say shifted to a new place. Then you should take steps to update your new address in your bank account. In this guide of mine, I will tell you how you can update or change address in Indian Overseas Bank account.

Your address is a very important part of the KYC details of your account. The banks use this address to send you important communication. And also the documents like the new cheque book, etc. The bank will not charge you anything to update the address.

But you can not change it online using internet banking or mobile banking. You will have to follow the offline method which requires you to visit your home branch. You should also keep in mind that the bank will require you to submit your new address proof document.

I am here talking about the address proof document that certifies your new place of stay. Without the proper proof documents, the banks in India don’t take your request. You will not be asked to submit your original copy of the document. But a self-attested photocopy of it to the bank.
