    As they are enjoying 5 days a week, they should increase daily working times.

    • Don’t be a crybaby, burn your guts and end up with a nervous breakdown. Indians have been lazy for generations and that was the reason British bet the shit out of them for centuries. Since moving to Canada in 1953 I have noticed that banks are mostly operated by a woman and they happen to be efficient, sincere and hardworking. I hope some gutsy manager takes over and straighten out the system.

  33. One of the worst banking service. SBI workers shouldn’t know the basic sense. Its the top most worst service.
    If you want to check ?
    Kindly visit axis Bank,icici,hdfc.
    Then visit sbi.
    You peoples can feel the difference.

    I don’t agree with the statement that if you visit during lunch break then you can get services. Because I have a shop in front of sbi branch in Singho Dist Bathinda Punjab and everyday they open 10 am and close gate 2 pm for lunch . You can’t enter until 3pm . Rain, sun heat doesn’t matter stay out of bank.
    The most interesting point is atm booth is shut since demonetization.
