Charges for bank lockers based on size


Safe deposit lockers, commonly known as bank lockers, are a popular way to store valuables. For this service, banks impose a fee dependent on the size of the locker.

Many banks and some of their branches offer customers bank lockers in exchange for a deposit, with lockers being assigned based on availability.

Here are the rates for bank lockers at State Bank of India (SBI), ICICI Bank, Punjab National Bank (PNB), and Axis Bank, as well as the various sizes available. (All locker fees and sizes are listed on the various bank websites.)

According to the bank’s website, bank locker fees range from Rs 500 to Rs 3,000, depending on the size of the locker and the locality. In metro and metropolitan areas, the bank charges Rs 2,000, Rs 4,000, Rs 8,000, and Rs 12,000 for small, medium, large, and extra-large lockers, respectively.

In semi-urban and rural locations, the bank charges Rs 1,500, Rs 3,000, Rs 6,000, and Rs 9,000 for small, medium, large, and extra-large lockers, respectively.

SBI Bank charges a one-time registration fee, and annual rent must be paid in advance.
