  2. Bro,

    Please send a complaint to SBI zonal/regional managers and RBI authority. Starting a SSA account is a matter of 15 minute job. Because in your case, salary account is on the same branch. So they dont want any other details from your side. Only required are 2-3 passport size photographs and Birth Certificate of your little angel. If they require KYC details, simply give a photo copy of your savings bank passbook. From my knowledge there is no special application for for SSA. The process is almost same as creating a new SBI account.
