How is the savings account average monthly balance (AMB) is calculated?
According to the Yes Bank website, here is how savings account average balance is calculated:
To calculate the AMB, add each day’s end-of-the-day balance in your savings account and divide it by the number of days in that month.
AMB = (Sum of all the EOD closing balances) / (number of days in a month)
Assuming, a savings account AMB requirement is Rs 10,000:
On January 1, the balance in the savings account is Rs 10,000.
On January 12, withdrawal of Rs 4,000 takes place. EOD balance is Rs 6,000.
On January 18, deposit of Rs 10,000 takes place. EOD balance is Rs 17,000.
Summing up the EOD balances: For 11 days-from July 1 to July 12-sum of EOD balance will be Rs (10,000*11) = Rs 1,10,000
From July 12 to July 18, sum of EOD balances will be Rs (6,000*6) = Rs 36,000
From July 18 to July 31, sum of EOD balances will be Rs (17,000*13) = Rs 2,21,000.
Sum of all the EOD closing balances = Rs 3,67,000
Total number of days in July = 31
So, the minimum average balance will be 204000/31 i.e. Rs 11,838.70
