BSS, RAJSHAHI: All the 374 branches of Rajshahi Krishi Unnayan Bank (RAKUB) are to be computerised in phases by June 2014, in a bid to expedite its client services and other operational activities. 

On successful completion of the venture, RAKUB will soon be linked with online banking activities to keep pace with increasing demands.

The bank management stated this while addressing the inaugural session of a four-day training course on ‘Infinity Banking Solution and Troubleshooting’ at the bank’s computer training laboratory yesterday. 

20 branch-level officials in charge of computer sectors in different branches are taking part in the course. 

Managing director Mofazzal Hossain addressed the session as chief guest while deputy managing director Abu

Hanif Khan and general manager (administration) Nishith Kumar Shaha spoke as special guests with deputy managing director (ICT Division) Golam Mostofa in the chair.

The speakers expect that electronic banking will facilitate improvement of services to the clients in general.  Already,

branch managers and zonal managers were given necessary instructions for introducing computerisation

systems as early as possible. RAKUB, headquartered in Rajshahi, has been operating its banking activities as

the largest development partner in all 16 northwest districts of Rajshahi and Rangpur divisions targeting its agricultural sector and all its sub-sectors. 

Mofazzal Hossain stressed on the importance of online banking and asked all officials concerned to take necessary measures in this regard. 

“We have no way but to enter into the online banking era to exist in the modern and competitive banking system,” he said, adding that clients should also be familiarised with the modern system. 

He said the effort will supplement the government endeavor to build a digital Bangladesh in order to reach public services towards people’s doorsteps by 2021.
