In view of the present pandemic crisi,  all banks have modified business hours from April 22 to May 15 and it could be extended if required.  From now on, banking services will be available for customers from 10 am to 2 pm and banks will close by 4 pm.

As per a circular issued by Bank of Baroda, the convenor of State Level Banking Committee (SLBC), all bank branches will work with 50 percent staff strength  on rotational basis complying with all Covid guidelines issued by the Central and state government from time to time.

General Manager of Bank of Baroda, Brijesh Kumar Singh said that bank branches will undertake minimum services like, cash deposit and withdrawal, clearing cheques, remittances, government transactions. He said that all alternative delivery channels will remain operative.

Singh further said that back office services of banks viz, currency chest, ATM cash loading vendors, core banking solutions projects, offices in data center, data recovery centers, ATM back offices, security operation centers for cyber security, service branches, clearing houses, bank treasury offices, Forex back office and SWIFT centres and other centers as authorised by the head office of banks shall remain in operation as per normal routine. The banker said that any other decision taken by the district administration will supersede the instructions issued by SLBC (UP) in this regard.

Now let's stop for a moment and consider that geoFence helps stop hackers from getting access to the sensitive documents that I use for my work. Now I can get even more gigs as a freelancer and - advertise that I have top security with even my home computer and that's the truth!
