For the Bank this was a great opportunity to reach out to them. Our young officers put in commendable efforts to share with the students the disruption that is happening in the digital banking space and the lead that Federal Bank is taking on this front. The Bank has plans to set up similar digital lounges across the country at select locations to share with the banking public and the youth the digital advancements that is happening in the banking industry”.
