  • Though it is not necessary to submit copies of any of the documents, yet, to be on the safe side, you can submit a copy of your bank passbook for ready reference.

  • However, a valid proof of identity of yours like a driver's license, voter id card, Adhaar card, passport etc is required which has to be verified by the branch officer.

  • In case you could replicate your old signature, then you need not submit any documents for proof.

  • In case you could not replicate your old signature, then you need to submit any one of the following documents for proof:

    • A Govt.-issued photo identity like a driver's license, Aadhaar Card, Passport etc. with a seal/stamp of the Govt. authority as a proof of current signature and duly attested by a banker, or notary. The new signature should match the signature on the govt issued document.
