The Group Executive, Digital and Consumer Banking, Mr. Anant Rao, who addressed participants at the event, said the promo was launched as part of the bank’s initiatives towards prioritising customers. He added that customers who save consistently would be rewarded in order to promote the financial inclusion initiatives of the bank.
“We believe it is time we rewarded our customers who have been very loyal over the years. Without them, we would not have made the giant strides attained thus far,” he added.
