By Tricitynews Reporter

The initiative is part of HDFC Bank’s ongoing endeavour to create customer awareness about safe banking practices.

At a function organized in the city, the initiative was launched by Jatinder Gupta, Zonal Head Punjab, HDFC Bank, in the presence of 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 netbanking, mobile apps, transacting at ATMs; using debit or credit cards at POS 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.
Jatinder Gupta Zonal Head, Punjab, HDFC Bank said that 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.
