19 Dec 2017

2017 United Bank of India (UBI), the Kolkata based bank and the SLBC convener for  West Bengal today celebrated its Foundation Day with great fervour and festivity. Like the past years, this year's function was also marked by the bank's CSR initiatives, in which the bank distributed blankets among the impoverished and slum-dwellers through Ramkrishna Mission, Bagbazar. On this occasion, the bank launched a host of products and services, and announced the soft launch of its Credit Cards and Bharat QR Code, and a couple of web portals for the benefit of its past and present employees. Said  Pawan Bajaj, managing director and CEO: ``I am happy to announce the soft launch of United Credit Cards. The cards will be launched under the brand name of Pragati and Suvidha. Although we are a late entrant, I am confident that it is going to play a worthy role in bringing new corporate and HN1 within the Bank's fold.  Bajaj also emphasized on reduction of NPA, cost control and enhancing profitability of the bank. He reiterated that going forward the bank will continue to focus on the retail and MSME sectors for credit dispensation rather than larger corporate exposures. On this occasion  the Bank felicitated the Regional Heads, Branch Heads and Individuals who have been the top performers under United, Retail League Monsoon Dhamaka and United Ru-pay Moments Card Campaign.
Executive director Ashok Kumar Pradhan in his welcome address recounted the glorious past of the bank. While mentioning that of late the faith of people on public sector bank is dwindling, he advised all employees to take solemn pledge to rededicate themselves to redouble their efforts with an unflinching commitment to revive the spirit of the Bank and to regain the faith of the people. A cultural programme was organised by employees and their family members. . Debashish Mukherjee, general manager proposed vote of thanks. (EOIC)
