Explain that if the bank unions are accepted, then the time of opening and closing of banks can be changed for the common people. It is possible that instead of 10 o’clock in the morning, the banks should be opened at 9:30 and by 4 o’clock the customers’ work will be dealt with. If this happens, the bank employees will work only 5 days a week. Banks will be closed on every Saturday and Sunday. A proposal in this regard is being seriously considered. The first round of talks has been held between the banks’ Indian Banks Association (IBA) and the bank unions.
