IDRBT announces e-Programmes (e-Learning Channel)

The whole world is going through an unprecedented difficult situation in the wake of Coronavirus outbreak. Despite huge constraints, banks are ensuring business continuity and uninterrupted customer service. Digitisation of the operations is a critical factor that is enabling banks to offer these services without disruptions. Several banks are introducing innovative digital solutions.
