Apart from endless lunch breaks and long waiting hours, the State Bank of India is now famous for asking customers to dress up properly. An SBI customer took to Twitter to describe the whole incident. He went to one of the SBI branches wearing a pair of shorts and was told to go back, said a Twitter user called Ashish.

The SBI staff asked Ashish to wear full pants as the branch expects customers to “maintain decency”. Angry with the bank, the customer said, “Is there some sort of an official policy on what a customer can wear and cannot wear?”

Quite unexpected, right? Well, this is not the first time that the SBI has asked their customers to dress 'properly' for their visit to the bank.

In 2017, a similar incident happened at an SBI branch in Pune. A customer was denied entry because he was wearing shorts! And not just the security guard, the branch manager too asked him to go back and dress appropriately.

A DRESS CODE TO VISIT A BANK? A dress code for visiting a bank branch is as weird as Ranveer Singh’s choice of outfits. Instead, the SBI staff can focus on these and have people thank them, maybe?

1. THE LONG LUNCH BREAKS

SBI’s neverending lunch breaks are quite popular. You will see a meme on social media on the long lunch hours of SBI every now and then. Here are a few for you to enjoy:

2. SENDING CUSTOMERS TO DIFFERENT COUNTERS

Ever tried opening a bank account at an SBI branch? If yes, you might relate to this one. The SBI staff will make you go to a thousand different counters, a thousand times (trust me, been there done that!).

3. SERVER DOWN HAI!

Apparently when their lunch break is (finally) over, they often tell you “server down hai” while checking your details on their system.

4. ASKING FOR A MILLION FORMS

Yes, you definitely need documentation while opening a bank account but not as much as the State Bank of India makes you fill.

Ever faced anything similar at SBI (or any other bank)? Let us know in the comments.
