JAMMU, Feb 21: HDFC Bank Limited today launched its Secure Banking Programme here today.
The initiative is part of HDFC Bank’s ongoing endeavour to create customer awareness about safe banking practices.
The programme will be rolled out across 29 branches in Jammu to educate customers and create awareness among general public.
The initiative was launched by Zubair Iqbal, Circle Head, Jammu and Kashmir, HDFC Bank in the presence of Sachin Mahajan and Parvinder Singh Sudan, Cluster Heads, Jammu Division, HDFC Bank and other senior HDFC Bank officials.
The ‘Secure Banking’ initiative comprises a series of workshops, which educate customers through presentations on matters they need to be careful about, while conducting banking transactions. This includes using net-banking, mobile apps, transacting at ATMs using debit or credit cards at PUS terminals, merchant outlets and online banking.
These workshops are also open to the general public. Both customers and non-customers are welcome to attend the series of workshops, which will be conducted at various branches across India on a regular basis. In addition to the branches, various other channels like ATM screens, mobile banking app and the HDFC Bank website will be used to spread awareness about Secure Banking.
“Banking in India has made tremendous progress in the last two decades and it continues to evolve further. With the advent of technology, customers need to be educated on possible frauds they can fall prey to. An alert and well-informed customer is less likely to inadvertently disclose personal banking details. Through this simple presentation, which educates customers about the dos and don’ts they must follow while using these platforms with the help of real-life examples and case studies, we hope to create greater awareness of safe banking practices among general public”, said Zubair Iqbal, Circle Head, Jammu and Kashmir, HDFC Bank.
