Appeal to take advantage of door step banking service.
Corona cases are at a peak in the country. About 3 lakh cases are being reported on a daily basis. In view of the present circumstances, banks have decided to reduce their working hours. In this difficult time, bank employees are constantly engaged in serving people by playing on their lives. In such a situation, in order to save the life of their employees, apart from government banks, private sector banks have also taken this decision.
At this time most banks have limited their working hours from 10 am to 2 pm. Keeping in mind that people do not have any kind of trouble, banks are mainly doing the work of cash deposits and withdrawals. Apart from this, government work and remittance service is also continuing. In the directive issued to the banks by the Indian Banks Association, an appeal has been made to promote the door step banking service. Under this service, the bank comes to your home and serves you.

Apart from this, an appeal has also been made to the bank employees to get vaccinated as soon as possible.

The IBA found in its report that the death ratio is very high in the banking sector.
