has been noted that some of the banks do not open individual
accounts for visually impaired persons and insist upon
opening of a joint account. In order to facilitate the
visually impaired persons and make them a productive member
of society, banks are advised to also allow opening of
an individual account to such impaired persons after explaining
to them terms and conditions set by the banks to govern
the operation of these accounts.
The banks are further advised to ensure that no request
of a visually impaired person for opening of an individual
account, if he/she so desire, is refused.
Please acknowledge receipt.
