Mohali: Now, visit banks from 10 am-2 pm

Tribune News Service

Mohali, April 3

The district administration today allowed public dealing in all banks of the district from 10 am till 2 pm on working days, but with restrictions.

Deputy Commissioner Girish Dayalan said only cash transactions, clearance, remittances and government transactions should be performed by the banks. He said all branches, including treasury/currency chests, would remain open with minimum staff. He further said pensions would be disbursed through business correspondents.

Dayalan further emphasised that people should follow social distancing guidelines and avoid crowding, failing which there should be penal action. He said only one member of the family/household should be allowed to step out to go directly to the bank, that too, on foot along with bank passbook. Immediately after finishing the work, the person should return to his home. He said branch manager might report any violations to the local police station.

He said a person need not visit his home branch, but might visit the nearest branch of the same bank. However, all ATMs would remain open 24x7, he added.

Dayalan further said the use of vehicles to go to the bank should not be allowed. If anyone required the use of a vehicle to visit the bank, for any reason, he or she should first apply for a short-duration curfew pass online (epasscovid19.pais.net.in/) and visit the bank only after it was granted, he added.

The DC said bank employees should only be allowed to go to work and return/or on official bank duty on production of bank ID. Any violation of the curfew by bank employees by use of ID for any other work should render them liable for penal action, he added.
