New Delhi: The heads of SBI on Monday picked up brooms on the occasion of Mahatma Gandhi’s birth anniversary, and pledged resources and money to make the government’s ‘Clean India’ drive a success. Lead by Bhattacharya, around 250 senior employees of SBI cleaned the area around the Girgaum Chowpatty in the heart of the city, while Kochhar and her senior management officials cleaned the area near its branch in the Backbay Reclamation area of the city.
SBI chairperson Arundhati Bhattacharya said they will increase digital banking to reduce the use of paper which will help the environment as well as lead to better cleanliness. On the occasion, Bhattacharya said the drive will hopefully encourage everyone to come together and help turn Mahatma Gandhi’s dream of a clean India into a reality.
“SBI’s commitment towards digital banking is another way of supporting a clean India as less usage of paper will lead to a lot of reduction in waste and making the environment healthy and a clean place to live,” she said. Bhattacharya said the SBI workforce will carry out similar clean-up activities elsewhere.
“SBI aims to improve the quality of life and make the country sustainable by carrying forward this initiative on a regular basis,” she added.
