SBI account holders ‘left high and dry’ in Zakir Nagar, Batla House

With the explosion of population in Jamia Nagar, the area has seen opening of large number of ATMs. However, banks branches are still a few, leading to overcrowding in existing bank branches like the State Banks of India.

For many residents its branch in the locality was a big relief. But that may all come to end with a resident claiming that the SBI is shifting its branch to Bharat Nagar.

“Today, I visited the branch and saw a banner put there that said the branch is to be shifted to Bharat Nagar,” said Fufran Rumi adding that the day when branch will shift is not given.

Many residents, who have their accounts in SBI Zakir Nagar Branch, fear that they would face hardship.

The official version was not available. In Okhla there are many SBI branches, one in Jasola, Okhla near NFC community centre, which are far from Jamia Nagar.

The SBI branch has been at the centre of attraction for some time in the past as a few of its staff had complained of manhandling by impatient customers, an allegation that has been rubbished by residents, who said the branch is overcrowded.

It is understood that after the branch being shifted to Bharat Nagar, many customers would be left high and dry in the locality.
