How to deposit or withdraw money in a bank?

Print

Are you embarrassed going to a bank just because you don't have good English speaking skills? Or Don't know how to fluently ask about depositing or withdrawing money from your bank? Bank staffs in cities usually follow English as their language of communication. If you don't have sufficient English speaking skills, communicating in a bank can be a daunting task,especially while depositing or withdrawing money, which are the main functions of a bank. If you can converse fluently in English, the discomfort will be lesser.

Steps to keep in mind:

Observation

Observation skills are very important for a fluent English conversation. While at a bank, observe the general layout of the bank. Most banks arrange counters for different functions. By generally observing the layout, you will get a basic idea where the counters for depositing and withdrawing money are. Usually both the counters are separate.

Approach counter

The counters are clearly marked DEPOSIT or WITHDRAW. You can improve English vocabulary by reading books and taking the help of a dictionary. It can be embarrassing if you don't know how to speak in English fluently. Unless you have a specific query, most of the conversations are standard. You can refer to the sample conversation below for broad guidelines on how to speak with bank officials.

Attention to detail

You have to be very careful while filling in the details on the bank's  slip. The bank will not take any responsibility for any mistakes. Double-check whether the amount details and account number entered are accurate. Also, after depositing the cash, don't forget to update your passbook.

You: I wish to deposit some money. What is the procedure?

Counter clerk: How much is the amount?

You: It's Twenty thousand rupees.

Counter clerk:You have to fill in the slip first, mentioning cash details and account number. Please fill in the numbers correctly as we are not responsible for any mistakes.

You: Thanks, I will fill it and come back.

(You fill the deposit slip, come back and hand over the cash and slip to the counter).
