02) Adult Person
03) Married Woman
04) Purdanashin
05) Blind Person
06) Illiterate person
07) Incapacited person

The first category of the customer for banks are the Minors. The terminology minor is in banking is the customers who have not attain age to 18 years. The customers as minor looks like very simple but they may become very complicated. The definition of minor as per law in India –

In India the people who are below the age of 18 are called as minors. As per the Indian law any person who have attained age 17 years and 364 days will be created as a minor. In India the age of majority has been decided by Indian Majority Act of 1875. But if the child born is appointed a guardian or he/she is under court of wards (Where the court appointed the guardian) then he/she attains majority after his completion of 21 years of age or a child of foreign domicile is also attains majority only completion of the age of 21 year.

In context of the opening of account in bank the minor category can also be further divided into two age groups.
01) Age group from zero to nine years
02) Age group from ten to seventeen years.

  • If the minor comes under the age group zero to nine years than the minor can be open any of the bank account such as savings /fixed / recurring deposit account with jointly with their natural, legally or appointed guardian.
  • if the minors comes under the age group from ten to seventeen and desire to open a bank account, so the minor can open and operate a savings bank accounts independently.
    Now a question has come in my mind that what is the need to open a minor bank account, when the minor have no income to save it ?
    The answer may be, in this present scenario as soon as the minor took berth and the time starts when he / she gets some money on many of the ceremonies and the parents / guardians want to save this money that’s why they want to open a minor bank account.
    In the second case where the minor fall under the age group of 10 to 17 years. At this age group the minor thought that he became older now and he wants some pocket money for his personal use. The parents / guardians may open a minor bank account which will be operated by the minor himself but the parents / guardians can make check on the account transactions. One more reason behind to start the minor bank account by government was to develop the habit of saving at their early age.

The discussion on the minor’s account is very vast and important also. It will discuss on any other blog. If the readers are interested to know the details on minor account please comment.


In the category of Individual’s any citizen of India attained the age of 18 years can be able to open bank account. There are many types of accounts in the Indian Banking System like Saving Bank, Fixed Deposit, Recurring Deposit, NRE Account, FCNR Account, ONR Account and much more. The individual’s who attain age of eighteen and more can also avail the different types of loan facility offered by bank in the Indian Banking System. In this category of Individual Bank Account there are two more categories of customers. they are the Blind Individual and illiterate Person. The Bank have to perform extra cushion while opening of account as well as while operating the bank account.

Blind Person

Like other individual a Blind person can also open bank account and take a loan from the bank. His contract is as valid as the contract of a normal person. The bank has to maintain extra caution while opening and operating the account. Every time when he come to bank any transactions he must be accompanied a literate normal person for witness. When the blind person withdraw cash from the bank the cashier must ask him the amount he want to withdraw and the witness must sign on the back of the cheque as witness and write the words received certain amount.
The Blind person can open saving and fixed deposit account but he can not able to open a current account.
In any case no minor account has to be opened in the name of a blind person.

illiterate person

who is illiterate person in India ?
The definition of illiterate is someone who is unable to read or write any language is treated as illiterate person. Any person who can able to read but not able to write is also treated as illiterate person but any person who can write but can not able to read is treated as literate person. So in India any person who can write his name is treated as literate person. Like other individual a illiterate person can also open bank account but while sanctioning the loan the bank must be extra careful. The bank has to maintain extra caution while opening and operating the account. For every transaction he have to come personally to the bank branch. Before opening of the bank account of a Illiterate person the bank has to explained all the terms and conditions of the account which the illiterate person want to open and must keep the evidence that the terms and condition had been explained to the illiterate persone and make sure that the illiterate person must understand those terms and conditions and must take their Thumb Impression for the purpose of entering into the agreement along with two recent photograph.

Married woman

Married woman is a normal customer to bank as other male married individual. In India the legal status of a married woman is regulated by the Hindu Succession Act 1956, Married Women Property Act 1874 & India succession Act 1925. The married woman is considered to have a separate legal entity in the society. The marriage can not affect any of the right of have her own & separate property. Section 14 of Hindu succession act provides that the property of a Hindu Female is her absolute property.
The married woman is free to open any account in the banking system but bank has to taken care the following precautions while opening and operating the account of a married woman.
01) If any overdraft limit sanctioned to the married woman the bank must ensure that the liability in taken care by her own property.
02) The married woman can be declared as insolvent by the court for\ her own debts, even though her husband is solvent. so bank must be little careful while sanction a loan or overdraft.
03) The husband of a married woman shall not be liable to repay the loan taken by her except
a) If the loan is sanctioned by the consent of her husband.
b) If her husband stand as a surety of her loan
But If the married woman taken loan to fulfil her basic necessity of her life than her husband will have to repay the loan even though he may aware or not. In the case of married woman where she maintains her account in her maiden name (name before marriage) and after marriage she wants to change her name in the account. so it is permissible.

Purdanashin Woman

The purdanashin woman is a lady who remains in complete closed environment and she is not allowed to transact of any type of business
with the people other than her family members. That’s why the contract made by her is not a contract with free from all defects because the presumption of undue influence always exists in her contract. Hence the bank should always take all precautions in opening an account in name of Purdanashin Woman.
01) Generally, the banks should always try to discourage to open the account in the name of Purdanashin Woman because the identity of the account holder cannot be ascertained.
02) if necessary, the account should be opened in the name of literate woman only.
03) The current account should not be opened in any case.
04) The signature of Purdanashin woman should be attested by her husband on the account opening form, if the woman is unmarried the signature should be attested by her natural guardian.
05) Photograph of the purdanashin woman must be obtain at the time of account opening.

Incapacited person

The Incapacited person is also become a customer of the bank and can be open a bank account.
First of all we have to know who is Incapacited person ?
A person who is Incapable to come to the bank branch in person or Incapable to sign the cheque to withdraw the money from his account, This can be happen due to illness or any other reasons. The characteristics of a Incapacited person can be understand with these examples. Suppose, a soldier who lost his both of the hand in the battle field, so he will not be able to put his signatures, even then he have no thumb to put the impression also. or if a defence personals lost his both the legs in the action or get any type of injury by which he will not be able to move and unable to come to bank branch in person or any other general person who come under the same category can also be allowed to open his bank account.
Now a question come in mind that what is the need to have a bank account of an incapacited person ?
The answer may be that the incapacited person can be get his pension to credit or the incapacited person may get some compensation for his accident, that’s why the Incapacited person will also need a bank account. There are so many other reasons where an incapacited person be a part of the customers list.
The incapacited person can be able to put his thumb impression, which should be witnessed by two independent witnesses known to bank and one responsible bank official who take witness that the witnesses have signed in his presence.
In the case where the customer cannot be able put his thumb impression as the soldier who lost his both of the hands as mentioned in the example. In this case the bank can be able to make the payment by obtaining two independent witnesses, a witness of a responsible bank official along with a certificate from competent doctor.
The opening and operating the bank account of a incapacited person is very challenging by the bank officials and bank has to take extra caution while operating such type of bank accounts.
