Bank of Baroda celebrated its 114th foundation day on July 20 by felicitating COVID warriors across all the 18 zones of the bank pan-India.

Each of the zones identified employees who had served the society during the pandemic and showed exemplary courage, passion and dedication towards the society and felicitated them.

Apart from the felicitation of the COVID warriors from the bank, Bank of Baroda also felicitated Mayur Shelke, who is employed as a pointsman with Indian Railways in Mumbai, Maharashtra. Shelke risked his life to save a six-year-old child from “certain death” when the latter fell onto railway tracks in front of an oncoming train at Vangani railway station, near Mumbai. A video of the incident had gone viral on the social media.

The theme for the 114th foundation day was about the “value” all “Barodians” create and the “trust” that the bank enjoys of its 140 million customers. The theme was ‘creating value with trust’. It was about the ability to offer enriching customer experience and enhanced product offerings with the same trustworthy service that the bank is known for.

Bank of Baroda also announced the soon-to-be-launched ‘bob world’, a digital banking platform.

Sanjiv Chadha, managing director & CEO said: “Our employees showed exceptional courage and served our customers. We gratefully acknowledge the services and sacrifices made by our staff members. On this auspicious day, we also bring the next generation, comprehensive digital banking platform ‘bob World’, which is an expression of the customer centric, progressive and global values of the bank.”
