dear Mr. Verma. .
surprised to know someone has something nice to say about PNB. I
haven't find many other organizations as obnoxious as PNB is. I had a
real struggle to get my ATM card from PNB. in fact, I'd contacted the
higher authorities as well. but at the end of the day, I had to
complaint to the RBI, and also to the NHRC and the government of India
ministry of finance to get my card. after all that, I got my card
after a good 7 months. recently too, I had a terrible time with the
PNB, when I applied for a check book. as I already mentioned, this
happened after I submitted the RBI circular on the rights of the
disabled on banking facility.
and then we all have the story of a visually challenged being asked to
provide a NOC from the parents to avail an ATM card. have you heard of
anything more obnoxious?
banks in general, and PNB in particular have a horrible record when it
comes to acknowledging the rightful claims of the disabled. so we have
to take the struggle against such horrible institutional nonsense to
all possible levels including the media.
