The Bank of Ceylon’s newest branches were opened at Domagahawela and Sewanagala in the Uva Province recently to add convenience together with the novel digital banking technology to customers in those areas.

The new Dombagahawela branch is situated at the Main Street, Dombagahawela. Opening of these two new branches were carried out as a strategic move to add more convenience in terms of digital touch for its customers in the Uva Province. Managers of respective branches officiated these events and customers and well-wishers of respective branches too attended these events. 

Bringing in the digital aspect of banking to every nook and corner in the country the Bank is in the process of strategically spreading its technology to all its branches. These branches are also connected to the rest of the 631 branches through a centralised network thus allowing customers to transact real-time with any of the branches in the network spread across the country. Customers of Bank of Ceylon are digitally empowered to transact anytime of the day with its interconnected 24 x 7 operative ATM/CDM and CRM network which consist of over 1,071 customer service points spread across the country.

These two newly opened branches will offer a wide array of banking services to its customers such as current and local or foreign currency savings/fixed deposit accounts, children’s and senior citizen’s savings accounts and saving plans, housing and personal loans, special loans schemes such as Thurunu Diriya, Enterprise Sri Lanka loans, education loans, Leasing and pawning facilities. Customers can also avail themselves of Debit or Credit cards, Micro and SME financing facilities and international money transfer/remittances services. These branches have the 24 hour self-serving ‘SmartZone’ that includes a CRM (for cash deposits and withdrawals) and ATMs so customers have the freedom to transact at their convenience anytime of the day. The Bank invites all residents of the area to experience superior banking services at these branches.
