How to Change DOB in Indian Bank Account?

DOB or the date of birth of the account holder is very important information for the banks. And the chances of this information being mentioned wrong in the account are very less. But still, if this has happened to you. Then don’t worry. I will tell you how you can change DOB in Indian Bank account.

You can request the bank to correct it and it will approve your request request. But for that, you will have to provide a proper proof document that certifies your date of birth. This can be your 10th class marks card, driving license, birth certificate, etc.

I am very sure you will have at least one document with you. But in case if you don’t have it. Then I am very sorry to say but the bank will not take your request. The bank will not ask you to submit the original copy of the document. You just have to submit a photocopy of the document with your signature on it. (self-attested)

The most important thing about this process is. You can not change this online. What I mean is there is no option in internet banking or the mobile banking app that will help you do it. For this process to begin you will have to personally visit your Indian Bank’s home branch. (offline)
