Indian Overseas Bank today introduced ‘Savings Account Portability Online’, a feature that has been designed to elevate customer convenience.
For individuals who have to shift from one location to another due to career shifts, educational pursuits, or various life transitions, the cumbersome process of relocating a bank account has been a persistent headache. Historically, this endeavor involved endless forms, protracted queues, and days of waiting for the account transfer to materialize. With Savings Account Portability Online, Indian Overseas Bank has bid farewell to this arduous process.
Commenting on the feature, Ajay Kumar Srivastava, Managing Director & CEO, Indian Overseas Bank said, “Indian Overseas Bank will continue to focus on creating digital differentiators with evolving technologies while keeping in mind customer needs.

Indian Overseas Bank’s newly introduced online account transfer process is quite effortless. Customers can execute account transfers with unprecedented ease.
To initiate an account transfer, customers simply need to log in to the IOB website (www.iob.in) and access the ‘Transfer of Savings Accounts’ section. Enter the account number and registered mobile number. A one-time password (OTP) will be sent to the registered mobile number. Once the OTP is entered, one may specify the desired branch for transfer and submit. A new page opens, revealing the account number and the name and code of the destination branch, confirming the successful transfer.
Crucially, to partake in this seamless service, customers must ensure their phone numbers are accurately registered with the bank.
Through this facility, IOB is bridging geographical distances and the inconveniences of traditional account transfers and embracing a future centered on customer convenience where simplicity and efficiency converge at one’s fingertips.
