Come March 1, a few leading banks will be levying charges on additional cash transactions.

Following the suit, HDFC bank has already issued a notification to its customers that they will have to pay charges for cash transactions after a certain limit.

The bank has clarified that only four cash transaction collectively, including deposit and withdrawal, will be free and the customers will have to pay Rs 5 or Rs 150 per Rs 1000 transaction depending on the amount.
