Again, it is changed that service charge will be applied for withdrawal from other banks but not for first five transactions.



    Not anymore. Since Banks are nationalized, If I have an account in Bank of Baroda in Chennai, I can withdraw money from Amritsar without any service charges applied. I can even deposit a cheque in any branch of the bank, where I have the account, around India.

    (Bhai, it is not a good idea to withdraw amounts like ₹200 from international banks like ICCCI . I once withdrew ₹100 from ICCCI ATM but I was charged more than half I withdrew. )
    Ok, thanks. I'm glad it has changed now.

    David, that context would have been more useful in post #1 than in post #10.

    What context are you referring to? In post 10, I just acknowledged that what emsr assumed is right.

    In post #1 you could have said you wanted to write a letter of complaint to your bank.

    Yes, I could have but my main question was which word would be suitable, either extra or additional. Unless emsr pointed out I though the rest of the sentence was okay.

    We understand that but the point is still that context can make a difference. If I had been telling a friend what the bank had done, I might say "Can't believe it. I took out $100 from that ATM the other day, and it took an extra $50 off my account". That would absolutely not be the way you would write it in a complaint to the bank and, when writing to the bank, I would say "additional", not "extra". So as you can see, context would have made a difference when deciding which one to use. It was sheer luck that I guessed you wanted the more formal variety and gave you a sentence to use in a letter to a bank manager.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
