What should be your ideal bank account

Reasons to avoid multiple bank accounts:

Try and stick to two, one for general purpose and another for your savings & investment or a maximum of three (for business purpose) bank accounts. 
Anything beyond that is not advisable. Here are some reasons why
➡You would have to lock-in funds to meet the minimum balance requirement
➡Non-maintenance of minimum balance attracts penalty
➡ You could lose on interest as savings account rates are lower
➡Transactions could become confusing if you have different accounts linked to different transfers or payments
➡Filing tax returns can get cumbersome
➡Managing multiple cards and cheque books may get confusing
