Home / Industry / Banking /  2- day nationwide strike: SBI branches, ATM services may be hit

2- day nationwide strike: The working of the State Bank of India (SBI) is likely to be affected on 28 and 29 March due to a 2-day nationwide strike. 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.

"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.

SBI said it has been advised by the Indian Banks' Association (IBA) that All India Bank Employees Association (AIBEA), Bank Employees Federation of India (BEFI) and All India Bank Officers' Association (AIBOA) have served notice about their decision to go on a nationwide strike.

The bank said it cannot quantify the potential loss due to the strike.
