Best bank to open Salary account with


Hi all,

I had Citibank salary account for 16+ years and now from best customer care bank, their services are going to worst customer service bank Axis bank. I already received Axis Priority Bank cheques and stuff, but I don't want to use Axis for my salary account.

Other option available with my employer are:




Standard Chartered


Which of these will you recommend to a fellow typical dimer who is always on the lookout for best offers and ways to save every little paisa? Please provide your recommendations. Thanks!

ICICI was on top choice, but since they started charging IMPS, DC & some other misc fee for their salary account holder IDFC is my first choice.

I have an ICICI salary account and won’t recommend it if you’re looking for offers. I would recommend SC or IDFC based on your list.

Go for the ICICI for lots of pre-approved offers and best services.

HDFC is also quite similar, but they aren't matching with the ICICI. The main benefit here is their Platinum Debit Card for 1% CB upto 750 Rs per month for CC Bill payment.

If you want to have the Citi like experience, then go with the SC. Being Premier Member, they will give you many benefits.

Thanks. I already have Classic Savings account in HDFC which gives the Platinum Debit card for 750 cb per month. I will consider ICICI and SC smile

Hands down HDFC. Free HDFC easyshop Platinum Debit Card. 1% cashback for credit card bill pay. Free Classic Banking on zero balance Depending on your salary. And come on we are taking about HDFC here. For past 3 years since I'm using this, I never had to connect to customer care for anything ever. It just works 👍🏼
