Increase in NBI costs: The Punjab National Bank has increased its fees on a multitude of services, the lender recently notified. There have been several changes in the banking industry during the New Year, which took effect on the first day of this month. This includes the increase in ATM withdrawal fees, which have risen from Rs 20 to Rs 21 according to an RBI mandate, from the first day of 2022. However, the further price increases set by the Punjab National Bank (PNB) for its General Banking Services, one of India’s largest public sector lenders, will take effect from January 15, next Saturday.

The following are the areas where the general banking service charge has been increased by the Punjab National Bank:

Charges for non-maintenance of the QAB: According to the Punjab National Bank website, which made the new tariffs available, the limit for not holding the quarterly average balance (QAB) in metropolitan areas has been increased by 5,000 rupees. The previous fee for this was Rs 5,000, and the new fee that customers have to pay is Rs 10,000.

Fee for not maintaining the minimum balance: The rates for not maintaining the minimum balance in rural and semi-urban areas have been raised to Rs 400 per quarter. Currently, the bank charges Rs 200 to its customers in these regions for not maintaining the minimum balance. The same has been doubled to Rs 600 for urban areas and metropolitan cities, against Rs 300 currently, the PNB said on its website.

Bank record fees: In addition to the extra large lockers, the cost of maintaining bank lockers has been increased in all areas, including rural, semi-urban, urban and metropolitan cities. For example, a small locker maintenance fee would be Rs 1,250 in rural and semi-urban areas, as opposed to the current Rs 200 in the same locations. For urban areas and metropolitan cities, the fees have been increased by Rs 500 each, according to the bank’s website.

Free limit of bank locker visit: The free limit for visits to PNB bank lockers has also been reduced. Previously, subscribers were entitled to 15 visits per year for free. The limit has now been reduced to 12, after which a fee of Rs 100 will be levied, the bank said in a notification.

Cash handling fees: In its notification, the bank said that cash deposits based on the transaction and the amount had been increased. Under the new rules, a customer can only complete a maximum of three cash deposit transactions at both base and non-base branches, after which a fee of Rs.50 will be charged on each transaction. Previously this limit was 5 transactions per month, after which Rs 25 was charged for each transaction. This rule does not apply to BNA, ATM and CDM transactions. In case of amount base, cash deposits greater than Rs 1 lakh will incur a fee of Rs 0.25 per coin. Previously this was set at Rs 2 lakh. This will be done on a “per day” basis.

Apart from these, other services such as issuing duplicate drafts, canceling overdrafts, current account charges have also been increased by the bank. These new charges will come into effect from January 15, next week. “All other service charges related to general banking services (not related to credit) except above as mentioned on the bank’s website will remain unchanged,” Punjab National Bank said in its notification.

As we leave 2021 behind and set goals for the New Year, some people lucky enough to save may start considering buying their own homes in 2022.

But the process of getting a mortgage for the first time can be a daunting task, so we spoke to Finance Solutions mortgage broker Eoin O’Connor aka The Mortgage Guy on Instagram to give him a step-by-step guide. on where to start.

“People think mortgages are scary and are afraid to approach people,” Eoin said.

“As a mortgage broker, I make it as easy as possible for clients to come to me. I cover everything in five simple points.

1. Proof of income

You need to show the bank that you have income to support the amount of the mortgage you are looking to take out.

“Whether it’s a full-time, part-time, contract job, whether you’re self-employed, the bank needs you to have an income.

“Income will determine how much you qualify for a mortgage. The general rule is 3.5 times your salary. There are exceptions to this rule, but… you must have a strong case to search more than 3.5 times.



Mortgage broker Eoin O’Connor (pictured) offers five simple points to help first-time buyers

BEST EOIN TIP: To prove your income, you will need these documents …

  • The payslips for the last three months, the detailed job summary and a salary certificate completed by your employer – which confirms your start date, your profession, your base salary and any variable income (bonus, etc.)

  • For the self-employed, you will need to provide your audited accounts for the past three years and confirmation from your accountant that your tax affairs are up to date / tax clearance certificate.

2. You must have a minimum deposit of 10%

“As the first buyer, you have to pay a 10% deposit. It can come from savings. This can come from the purchase assistance program if you are purchasing new construction. You can get up to 30,000 from there, depending on how much income tax you have paid over the past few years.

“But it can also come from a gift from a family member who is willing to help. “Mommy and Daddy’s Bank” is a very popular topic right now, but more and more parents are willing to help their children by giving them money and the banks are all for it. with that if everything else backs up.

EXPLAIN : If you are a first-time buyer to buy a home that costs $ 300,000, you need a down payment of $ 30,000. This is a 20% down payment for a second buyer and a 30% down payment on an investment property.

3. Proof that you can afford to pay the mortgage

“If your payment is $ 1,000 per month, you need to show that you can afford it by saving each month or renting each month. You have to demonstrate this for six months.

“Some lenders do what’s called a ‘stress test’ to demonstrate affordability. This means they add 2% to the rate, just for appraisal, to see if interest rates have gone up over the life of the mortgage, allowing you to demonstrate that you can make mortgage payments.

“Ideally, if you could save a couple hundred pounds on top of that mortgage payment, that would cover all lenders when you apply for a mortgage. “

BEST EOIN TIP: It’s all about consistency. If you are paying rent in cash, be sure to take the exact monthly payment on the same date each month so that it is clearly identified with the bank. And get a copy of the rental agreement.



data breach
The Data Protection Commissioner (DPC) has been informed of the breach.

4. Your bank accounts must be in good standing.

“You shouldn’t be under financial pressure before taking out a home loan of € 300,000 to € 400,000.

“The financial pressure would be: missing direct debits, your account overdrawn all the time, resulting in referral fees.

“Lenders will typically ask for recent six-month statements on all of your accounts, including Revolut. People think they’re not looking at Revolut, they are.

“Keep a stamp on your $ 100 checking account, no exact number, but if a phone bill comes out early, you leave enough so that your account doesn’t go overdrawn.” “

BEST EOIN TIP: Continue to bet on the bank account. Go down to the store!

5. Clean up your credit history

“That means no missed payments on loans, credit cards, overdrafts or previous mortgages (if you’re a second buyer) in the past.

“This could be a huge factor when it comes to approving, denying or deferring your mortgage application, even if you meet the other four points. “

BEST EOIN TIP: Whether you think your credit history is healthy or not, order your credit report on the Credit Center website. It’s free.

Additional charges to consider include:

  • Legal fees of up to € 2,000 – € 3,000 on average

  • Stamp duty – 1% of the property’s value

A recent report from Daft.ie showed house prices rose 7.7% in Ireland this year, with the average house price rising to € 290,998.

While the prospect of applying for a mortgage amid the current housing crisis may seem an unfeasible prospect, Eoin has offered some advice to those frustrated with the market as it is today.

He said: “Even though house prices have gone up this year… focus on controlling the controllable things that get mortgage approval.

“If you find the right property and think the monthly payments are affordable, then proceed with the purchase instead of worrying about all the other things we can’t control like house prices, house issues, supply, inflation, etc.

“If you can’t find the right property for you, your approval can always be extended with up-to-date documents and tax returns until you find the right property for you.”

Kampala, Uganda – The bank, as mandated by law, should no longer be classified as a credit institution but as a deposit-taking financial institution that provides loans for consumption and investment purposes to earn profit.

Senior bank officials told reporters on December 15 in Kampala that they were ready to innovate and come up with new products to compete favorably with other market players.

The bank has a total of 1.2 million customers, but only around 650,000 are classified as active according to Julius Kakeeto, the managing director.

The first level means that PostBank can now offer more services, including the acceptance of sight, sight, savings and term deposits withdrawable by check or otherwise, the provision of overdrafts and short and medium term loans , the provision of foreign exchange facilities and the acceptance and discounting of bills of exchange.

The bank may also provide financial and investment advice, participate in interbank clearing systems, give guarantees, bonds or other forms of collateral, and accept and place third party drafts and promissory notes related to operations in which they participate.

“It means we can offer services on a larger scale,” Kakeeto said.

The license issued by the Central Bank will remain in effect until revoked by the Bank of Uganda.

Kakeeto said that over the past 18 months they have rolled out measures that will strengthen the bank’s capacity, with the new management’s goal being to strengthen PostBank’s foundation.
