How to close NiyoX equitas savings account

I want to open the NiyoX account. As Equitas doesn’t have that many branches, everyone faces problem if they want to close the account.

Can closing NiyoX be done fully online? or Do we need to visit the branch to close it?

Are there any charges for the physical debit card?

Are there any charges like SMS charges that other banks charge?

Are there any charges for the ATM withdrawal in other bank ATM’s?

If you have the debit card, its free for 1 year - pls enjoy :slight_smile: as we have promotional offer in which the debit card charges are waived off if issued before 30th June 2021. For the consecutive years, the card is ₹177/year (incl. GST)

You can deactivate anytime before next year’s fee is levied. And don’t worry, in all probability that fee would be anyway waived off based on some usage/account balance criteria which we will announce in next few months.



OMG I don’t think somebody else already asked about these things :upside_down_face:

And i am really happy and fully satisfied with your replies :100:.

THANKS A LOT, Thank you
