The customer can get the card at the given address or can himself collect the card from the branch of the provider. The PIN is sent as a separate mail for safety reasons.

In case there is any change in fees, charges and terms and conditions can only be affected after giving at least one month’s notice along with a monthly statement. If there is any change in interest rates, then the bank can implement the change with effect from the date of announcement.
