The Bank Manager
State Bank of India
Subject : Application for re-issuing my ATM card
This is to draw your kind attention towards a problem I have been facing since a few months regarding my ATM card.
My ATM did not undergo any transaction for last three months. Due to which it got blocked and further transactions were denied. I consulted with concerned authorities in bank and they advised me to file an application for re-issuing new ATM card under same details. I filled my application and submitted it to the relevant counter from where I was asked to wait for a 3-4 weeks. After the given period I visited bank again and they asked to re-file the application. I have filed two applications regarding the same but to no avail. Neither I have received my ATM card nor any response.
Please inform me how long it is going to take to get my ATM card reissued. If there is some other process to be followed, kindly instruct me about it. I have visited bank in person several times but it is not getting me anywhere. This is really causing me difficulties sir. Kindly acknowledge the matter as soon as possible.
Quick response will be highly appreciated.
