Guidelines for giving access to locker/ safe custody article to the nominee/ survivor/ legal heir of the deceased locker hirers and depositors of safe deposit articles


The bank follows a simplified procedure for the settlement of death claims of deceased customers relating to lockers and articles kept in safe custody with the Bank without insisting on the production of a succession certificate. However, the Bank may adopt such safeguards in considering the settlement of claims as appropriate including accepting an indemnity bond. In case, only one of the legal heirs wants to claim/ receive the contents of the locker, etc. He/she can obtain a Letter of Disclaimer/ Power of Attorney in his/ her favor from the other legal heirs for receiving the contents of the Locker & articles kept in safe custody. Further, Bank is continuously communicating to its customers for making nominations in the accounts in terms of provisions of the Banking Regulation Act & other regulatory guidelines.
