Conversations in Hindi – Visit to a Bank Posted by on Jan 11, 2012 in Hindi Language

In most of big cities in India, you will find ATMs from Indian as well as some foreign banks and you can use them for withdrawing money (you can use VISA to withdraw money from Indian bank even you have an account with a foreign bank i.e. Sparkasse Dortmund, a German Bank) . However, sometime you have to visit a bank to deposit , withdraw, transfer of money or getting check/cheque encased etc. In big cites, some or all of the employees can converse in English but in smaller cities or villages, you have to know some Hindi.

It is not very difficult as many bank provide their forms with English printed along with Hindi or other regional language. You just have to ask for a particular form and after you have filled the right form, you just need to go to a particular counter to get or deposit your money or get your check/cheque.

Let me show you, how the whole process goes in Hindi. Maybe you will get few sample sentence that you can use in your bank.

Chris is going to a bank which is located in small city. He wants to withdraw some money and get a check/cheque.

Chris to Bank Employee :
नमस्ते / नमस्कार भाईसाहब!
Namaste / Namaskar Bhaisahab!
Hello / Hello (more formal) Sir!

Bank Employee to Chris:
नमस्ते / नमस्कार भाईसाहब!
Namaste / Namskar Bhaisahab!
Hello / Hello Sir!

Bank Employee to Chris:
बताये भाईसाहब, आपका क्या काम है?
Batayein Bhaisaahab, aapka kya kaam hai?
So, what can I do for you?

Chris to a Bank Employee :
मुझे कुछ पैसे निकलने हैं और एक चेक बनवाना हैं
Mujhe kuch paise nikalne hain aur ek check banvaanaa hai.
I need to withdraw some cash and I have to make a check/cheque.

Bank Employee to Chris:
आप वहा से नीला वाला फॉर्म (फॉर्म की और संकेत करते हुए), पैसे निकलने के लिए और सफ़ेद वाला फॉर्म चेक बनवाने के लिए भर लो और मेरे पास ले आओ (आइये).
Aap vaha se nila vala form (form ki aur sanket karte hue) , paise nikalne ke liye aur safed vala form cheque banvane ke liye bhar lo (lijiye) aur mere pas le aao (aaiye)
From there (pointing to the location of forms), you can take blue form for cash withdrawal and white form for Check/Cheque. Fill them and come to me.

Note: You need to fill a particular form for cash withdrawal, deposit, check/cheque or transfer (just about everything). These forms are colored and the color of forms may vary from a bank to bank.

Chris to a Bank Employee :
यह लीजिये भाईसाहब, दोनो फॉर्म भर लिये.
Yeh lijiye bhaisaahab, dono form bhar liye.
Sir, here they are. I have filled both forms.

Bank Employee to Chris:
यह लो/लीजिये आपके 10000 रुपए, गिन लो (रुपए देते हुए). चेक के लिये आपको दौपहर में आना होगा.
Yeh lo/ lijiye aapke 10000 rupee.  Check ke liye aapko daupher mein aana hoga.
Here is your 10000 rupee, please count them. For check/cheque, you have to come in afternoon.

Note: In smaller cities, bank usually take few hours to prepare a check/cheque. Take a note of it. Also, smaller banks in villages have some limit on cash withdrawal.

Chris to a Bank Employee :
धन्यवाद! (रुपए लेते हुए). चेक के लिये कितने बजे आना है?
Dhanyvad (rupee lete hue). Check ke liye kitne baje aana hai?
Thank you (taking the cash). When I have to come for the check/cheque?

Bank Employee to Chris:

Aap do baje aa jaao / aa jaana / aa jaaiye.
