VELLORE: The Arcot branch of the State Bank of India (SBI) has launched a customer-service centre to facilitate money-transaction using Aadhaar cards.

D Veeramani, district coordinator of SBI, said that the service centre’s hours will be 8 AM to 8 PM to help office goers, persons availing old-age pensions and those with biometric input accounts. Veeramani said that the bank was already running kiosk banking centres in 120 locations across the district to cater to the needs of rural people availing old-age pension and the Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act scheme.

These centres are managed by business correspondents who camp in a common place in villages to provide services to customers.  Since all banks in the district are in the process of starting Aadhaar-linked banking services, customers of any bank can utilise the service points of all those  banks to do any transaction in the future.
