The Supervision of Banks at the Bank of Israel published for public comment a draft supervision order on basic current account fees, with the aim of freezing the existing price level. Among the services on which supervision will be extended: "Operation by a clerk", "Operation through a direct channel", "Extended route" and Extended route plus".




As of today, only the "basic route" service - through which you can do up to one operation through a clerk, and another ten operations through a direct channel, is the banking service whose price is controlled, and it allows you to receive a package of basic services at a discounted price of up to ten shekels.



The Bank of Israel intends to bring additional banking services under supervision, with the aim of freezing the existing price level and ensuring that the prices of commissions for these services will not be increased without the approval of the supervision of banks.

A banking corporation that wishes to raise the rate for these services, compared to the prices existing at the time the order was issued, will be required to submit a reasoned request to the Supervisor of Banks and obtain his approval.
