The Reserve Bank of India time and again issues various instructions/guidelines in the area of customer service to bring about improvements in the quality of customer service in banks and their branches. But whether banks actually implement these guidelines is a different matter altogether.

In order to have all current instructions on this subject at one place, the Reserve Bank of India has compiled many of the important instructions in the form of a Master Circular.
This circular is 92-pages long, but is packed with information that you, as the customer of a bank, should know.
