    An account opened by more than one individual can be operated by single individual or by more than one individual jointly. This is called a joint account.

    However, on death of depositors, the nominee gets access. In case there is no nomination and all depositors die, legal heirs of all depositors will get the money.

    The various ways in which they can be operated are as follows:

    EITHER OR SURVIVOR
