Savings accounts have low number of transactions as compared to a current account.

  3. What does entries in pass book show?

    Besides entries of deposits & withdrawls made , pass book also shows entries relating to charges levied by the bank & interest allowed on the deposits made.

    What about wrong entries in the pass book?

    In the recent past the pass books were filled in by clerk by hand & quite often wrong entries were made resulting in disputes.

    In India there is a statutory duty on the part of the customer to examine his pass book & inform about mistake(s) appearing in the pass book if any to his banker. This duty means it operates against the customer if he is careless. Entries which are favourable to the customer but wrong or fictitious do not constitute a settlement of account as far as pass book is concerned.
