Stop the rule of Monthly Average Balance for all banks

This petition had 8 supporters

The rule of Monthly Average Balance for Metropolitan, Urban, Semi-urban, Rural areas must be removed. 

The Monthly Average Balance for SBI is as follows:

1. Metropolitan Area - ₹ 5000

2. Urban Area - ₹ 3000

3. Semi-urban Area - ₹ 2000

4. Rural Area - ₹ 1000

Hon. Prime Minister Mr. Narendra Modi Announced the Jan Dhan Accounts which can be operational with zero balance and now the government is telling us to keep ₹ 3000 in that account. 

As if a person who lives in a metropolitan area and works on daily wages of ₹250 per day, how can he keep that amount in the bank? 

If a student lives in an urban area for his/her higher education, his parents give him money for the daily expenses. So how can a student keep ₹ 3000 in that account.

And if any person fails to maintain the Monthly Average Balance , High amount of penalty is charged by the bank. The charges are  ₹50+GST to ₹100+GST per month. If a poor is not able to make that much money to maintain the Monthly Average Balance, how can he afford those penalty charges? And if a poor tells the bank for closure of account, the bank  charges ₹ 500+GST for that. 

This rule is totally against the poor, the students, and the farmers. The bank is using our money but can't issue the poor with a loan.
