The State Bank of India (SBI) will be on a nation-wide strike on 28 and 29 March. The country's top lender said that its banking services may get impacted to an extent as various employees' unions have called for a two-day strike.
The 2-day nationwide strike has been called to oppose the government's move to privatise public sector banks and the Banking Laws Amendment Bill 2021.
Last year bank unions under the United Forum of Bank Unions (UFBU) had declared a nationwide strike against the proposed privatisation of public sector banks (PSBs).
"We advise that while the bank has made necessary arrangements to ensure normal functioning in its branches and offices on the days of strike, it is likely that work in our bank may be impacted to a limited extent, by the strike," SBI said in a regulatory filing.
