This is in line with Ministry of Corporate Affairs’ notification of spending CSR funds for COVID-19 as an eligible CSR activity,” SBI said in a statement.

Meanwhile, the Indian Banks’ Association (IBA) has urged customers of all banks to avoid visiting bank branches for non-essential services. “IBA will continue providing the banking services to the valued customers, however it appeals to everyone, to visit the branch premise only in case of absolute necessity.
