Banks in Uttar Pradesh state will be open for customers for only four hours on working days until May 15, 2021. The banks will be open from 10 AM to 2 PM.

A decision to this effect was taken in view of the surge in Covid cases at a meeting of the State Level Bankers Committee (SLBC) held via video conferencing on Wednesday. SLBC officials said banks will remain open for internal work till 4 PM.

The decision can be extended beyond May 15 after assessing the Covid situation in the state.

The United Forum of Banks Union spokesperson, Anil Tiwari, said: “The decision has been taken as a precautionary measure to protect bank employees. Only 50 per cent of the staff will work daily on a rotation basis. The new rule will be implemented in all public and private banks from Thursday, April 22.”
