Barclays Bank

Barclays Bank is one of the oldest banks in the world being originally set up in 1690. The bank does not offer retail banking operations in India though it has a small presence in the retail segment as can be seen from the website. This may be a remnant of its retail banking foray in the country between 2006 and 2011. Since the bank is not focussed on the retail segment it does not offer any specific children’s accounts. The only option for someone who wishes to open a children’s account may be through the savings account. The bank offers 2 types of savings accounts, the Barclays Savings Account and the Basic Savings Bank Deposit Account.
