ICICI Bank said: “Effective November 1, 2020, a convenience fee of Rs 50 per transaction, will be levied on cash deposited in the cash acceptor or recycler machines on bank holidays and between 6:00 pm and 8:00 am on working days.”
If the cash deposit in the cash acceptor/recycler machines is more than Rs 10,000 per month either as a single transaction or multiple transactions, the bank will also levy a convenience fee.

Earlier this year, Axis Bank had already started levying the charge of Rs 50 on its customers as a convenience fee on cash deposit transactions done after banking hours (or between 5:00 pm to 9:30 am) and on national and State bank holidays. The convenience fee was effective on August 1.
