Amãna Bank recently opened its Twentieth Self Banking Centre at Thoppur under the patronage of its Chief Operating Officer Imtiaz Iqbal and Vice President – Retail Banking & Marketing Siddeeque Akbar alongside customers, area residents and staff of the Bank. The Self Banking Centre facilitates 24x7 cash deposits and withdrawals.
The Thoppur Self Banking Centre, which is centrally located at No 02, Main Street, Thoppur, is the only financial institution in the area to have an ATM and CDM facility, thereby catering to cash needs of many.
Commenting on the expansion of its Self Banking Centre concept to Thoppur, the Bank’s VP Retail Banking & Marketing, Siddeeque Akbar said “With the opening of our Twentieth Self Banking Centre, we are happy to extend our unique model of banking benefiting the people of Thoppur, whom for too long have been deprived of ATM and CDM facilities, for which they had to travel many miles to neighbouring cities. Based on the positive market response on the initial establishment of Self Banking Centres in remote localities, we wanted many more customers to benefit from such convenient services. We hope to expand the concept to many other regions as well.”
