Hence, the bank has not taken any decision to shut down of its branches during the financial year 2022-23. However, it is a regular practice for each bank to re-align/shift/merge/close/open branches on regular basis to achieve the set objectives of corporate business .”
Apart from this, we also got a report from Economic Times. The title of the article is that, “Central Bank of India says not yet decided on branch closures.”
Therefore , the viral is fake.There is no such decision till date.
