He said logo is very important for creating an identity of the new lender and discussions on this aspect have been taken place at the highest level of the three state-run banks.

“Consultant Ernst & Young (E&Y), which has been appointed by the anchor bank PNB, will supervise the process of harmonisation and standardisation. It includes issues relating to HR, software, products and services,” the official said.

Post merger, the combined staff strength of the new entity will be one lakh, he said.
