Mumbai: The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has warned the public of a fake website that’s identical to its own, offering banking facilities and asking people to apply online to open an ‘RBI savings account.’

The website,, has been created by “some unknown persons,” RBI said in a statement on Monday, cautioning the public “not to fall prey to spurious offers” by the site.

“The Reserve Bank clarifies that as India’s central bank, the Reserve Bank of India does not offer services offered by commercial banks, such as savings bank account, current bank account or credit cards. As such, the question of the Reserve Bank offering online banking services, as is indicated on the fake site, does not arise,” RBI said.
