However, the management has been cautious and careful enough not to amend its Article of Association in any way meanwhile ensuring the compliance with proper due deligence. The character of board in terms of structure has been kept intact while complying with other regulatory norms like professionalizing the composition of board to meet the growing needs of knowledge, expertise and experience in almost all the aspects of ever-changing world of banking and finance.”

“We are completely satisfied over the bank’s performance and decisions taken in this regard”, he added.
