Press Trust of India  |  Bhubneshwar 

HDFC Bank launched its Secure Banking programme here and plans to extend it to all its 96 branches across Odisha as part of its efforts to create banking awareness among customers.

Speaking about the initiative which was launched in Bhubaneswar yesterday, Debashish Senapati, Zonal Head, HDFC Bank, said banking in India has made tremendous progress in the past two decades.

From the early days when visiting the branch was a necessity, customers today have access to multiple platforms to conduct banking transactions, he said.

The initiative is part of HDFC Bank's ongoing endeavour to create customer awareness about safe banking practices, Senapati said.

The initiative was launched by P K Jena, Regional Director, Reserve Bank of India, Odisha.

The 'Secure Banking' initiative comprises a series of workshops, which will educate customers through presentations, on matters they need to be careful about while conducting banking transactions, Senapati said.

This includes using a cheque, transacting at ATMs, using debit or credit cards at POS terminals, merchant outlets and online banking, a bank release said.

These workshops would be open to the public and would be conducted at various branches across India on a regular basis, it added.
