Acknowledging the efforts and cooperation of bank employees across the nation, a non-government organisation (NGO) offered flowers to some of them in New Delhi, as a sign of their gratitude. A group of workers from the NGO CIPL distributed flowers to employee at a branch of the State Bank of India in Defence Colony.
“The job of an NGO is to help citizens for any kind of activity to ease the pressure and work load. Manpower is required to serve. Our project has been going on for seven days and earlier we were supporting the queues standing outside bank branches and ATMs and provided them snacks tea and water to them,” said a CIPL NGO worker.
“We realized that bankers also doing great effort to ease, so we decided to help them as we thought there was a need to appreciate their hard work. We will continue till there is smoothness in the flow. We have planned to cover 10-12 banks,” he added.
Employees of several banks have extended their working hours to ease the woes of customers after the Centre announced demonetisation of Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 currency notes.
