Banking services, especially branch operations and clearing work at public sector banks, were impacted in many parts of the country as employees joined the two-day nationwide strike to oppose the central government’s policies, including privatisation of banks. Treasury operations, however, were running smoothly, bankers said.

A joint forum of central trade unions has given a call for a nationwide strike on March 28 and 29 to protest against the government policies affecting workers, farmers, and people.  Thousands of workers of state-owned SAIL, RINL and NMDC also joined the nationwide strike, affecting production at steel plants and mines.
